Trump undecided?

I was watching Hardball last night and thought it quite funny that Donald Trump has yet to make up his mind between Bush and Kerry. It seems that while Donald likes his tax cuts, he is still not convinced. Here is a bit of the exchange:

MATTHEWS: … Let me ask you about this election for president. Who would you hire for president to do a job if you needed it done, Bush or Kerry?

TRUMP: Well, I know them both and I like them both. I will tell you that I love Bush’s tax policy, Chris. I really do. I think it is a good policy. And I really like it. I think it is good in terms of development…

MATTHEWS: Well, you would.

TRUMP: … and economic development and everything else. But I hate the war in Iraq. Now, on the other hand, Kerry has really not done such a good job in terms of tax policy as far as I’m concerned. So I’m very torn. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I am one of the undecided.

MATTHEWS: Right. Well, that’s good. You have a war you don’t like, but at least you don’t have to pay for it is what you’re telling me, because the tax cuts have helped the better-off people.


MATTHEWS: And the war doesn’t therefore cost that much to you.

TRUMP: Well, somebody is paying for the war. I’ll tell you, it is $400 billion, at least. And somebody is paying for it. But the war has not been a very positive thing, in my opinion.

MATTHEWS: Economically, what is the impact of a government that decides to borrow a war, basically, to pay for it later, fight now, pay later?

TRUMP: Look, I don’t think it’s positive. I think it has been a big negative. There are other places.
