Trumps Hints He Might Stop Being So ‘Divisive’

Donald Trump was more reserved in attacking his opponents during the Dec. 15 debate, and he continued to tone down his rhetoric the following night, Breitbart News reported.

“I would like to see the Republican Party come together,” the leading contender for the GOP presidential nomination said on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He admitted he has “been hitting people pretty hard.” That got a laugh from Kimmel, who replied: “A little bit, yea.” Trump remained serious, stressing that “ultimately we have to come together and get this thing done.”

At the debate the previous day, the billionaire businessman refrained from criticizing his rivals and did not take the bait when moderators or other candidates slammed him. Some analysts suggested that Trump is beginning to focus on the general election when he would have to appeal to Democratic and independent voters.

In another indication that is happening, Trump tried to separate himself from the war hawks on the debate stage. He called the U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan “stupid wars” that wasted trillions of dollars, Breitbart News reported.

The conservative site noted that in a race against Hillary Clinton, Trump could slam her Senate vote authorizing President George W. Bush to attack Iraq in 2003. The real-estate developer has repeatedly pointed out that he opposed that action at the time.
