Donald Trump: “I Regret Things I Have Said That Caused Pain”

19 Aug

US Presidential candidate Donald Trump
on Thursday night at a campaign rally in
Charlotte, North Carolina, on Thursday,
did something that he has never done
during his whole presidential campaign,
he expressed regret!
He admitted that he had said things in
the past in the heat of the moment
which he regrets and that he’s sorry,
but that he always says the truth.
“Sometimes, in the heat of debate and
speaking on a multitude of issues, you
don’t choose the right words or you say
the wrong thing. I have done that. And
believe it or not, I regret it. And I do
regret it, particularly where it may have
caused personal pain. Too much is at
stake for us to be consumed with these
issues,”
He added: “But one thing I can promise
you is this: I will always tell you the
truth.”
Trump’s public expression of regret
comes after his decision earlier this
week to shake up his campaign
leadership, installing a new campaign
Ceo and a new campaign manager, so
maybe this is the new strategy
employed by his campaign team.
Trump’s new campaign manager,
Kellyanne Conway, suggested in her first
days on the job that she favored this
newstrategy, but that she would also
seek to “sharpen” Trump’s campaign
message with scripted speeches like
Trump delivered on Thursday.
“We’re going to make sure Donald
Trump is comfortable about being in his
own skin, that he doesn’t lose that
authenticity that you simply can’t buy
and a pollster can’t give you. And voters
know if you’re comfortable in your own
skin,” she told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on
“New Day” Thursday morning.
“And let him be him in this sense: He
wants to deliver the speech, if he wants
to go to a rally, if he wants to connect
with the crowd in a way that’s very
spontaneous, that’s wonderful. And
that’s how he got here,” Conway
continued, adding,
“But at the same time, we have some
really serious, pressing problems in this
country that I’m hoping will start to be
addressed more by the media.”
As you know I am not a politician,” he
added, to initial cheers. “I have never
wanted to learn the language of the
insiders, and I’ve never been politically
correct – it takes far too much time, and
can often make it more difficult to
achieve total victory.”
Back in May, Trump said he didn’t
regret things he said or did.
“I like not to regret anything,” Trump
told radio host Don Imus in May after
controversy over comments that
questioned senator John McCain’s war
record. “You do things and you say
things. And what I said, frankly, is what I
said.”
