Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has gone through a tough stretch in his campaign, mostly due to inflammatory statements he made himself. But don't expect him to soften his tone or change his demeanor.
“I think that my temperament has gotten me here,” Trump told Fox Business Network, reported Politico. “I’ve always had a good temperament and it’s gotten me here. We beat a lot of people in the primaries and now we have one person left, and we’re actually doing pretty well there, but we’ll see how it all comes out.”
After several months of running on campaign promises to ban Muslims and deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, as well as slinging controversial comments about a Hispanic federal judge whom Trump said was unable to make an unbiased decision because of his ethnicity, the billionaire real estate magnate added to the ire by making critical comments about the family of a Muslim-American soldier who died in Iraq.
But Trump appears to be getting his campaign back on track by focusing on the economy. He recently gave a speech in Detroit where he unveiled details about his economic plan, including a 15 percent cap on business and corporate tax -- far lower than the current 35 percent cap on federal business taxes, according to CNN.
“It’s going to really push the economy forward -- I think it’s going to push it forward big league,” Trump said.
Nonetheless, Trump can be expected to continue his unfiltered style, which includes insulting his political opponents and saying what's on his mind with seemingly little regard for the consequences.
“I certainly don’t think it’s appropriate to start changing all of a sudden when you’ve been winning,” Trump told Fox Business Network. “I’ve beaten many people, and now we’re down to one. And we’ll see how it all works out, but I think it’s going to work out well.”
