The White House Questionnaire For GOP Candidates Wanting Trump's Endorsement Is A Doozy

Republicans hoping to earn President Donald Trump's endorsement have reportedly been served with a questionnaire consisting of eight yes or no questions with room for elaboration.


Candidates holding meetings at the Office of Political Affairs were given the "Opinion Leader Questionnaire" which covers topics that include the Supreme Court, the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, and foreign aid to Pakistan.

Below are the questions, which were leaked to The Huffington Post by three GOP sources speaking on the condition of anonymity.

  • "Do you support or oppose President Trump's appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court?"
  • "Do you support or oppose President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a multinational trade agreement?"
  • "Do you support or oppose President Trump's Executive Order to suspend the issuance of visas and other immigration benefits to nationals of countries of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen?"
  • "Do you support or oppose the repeal of Obamacare's individual mandate within the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017?"
  • "Do you support or oppose the President's intention to withhold foreign security assistance to Pakistan?"
  • "Do you support or oppose President Trump's Infrastructure Initiative, which calls for $200 billion in Federal funds to spur at least $1.5 trillion in infrastructure investments with partners at the State, local, Tribal, and private level?"
  • "On January 30, 2018, President Trump released a framework with the following four proposals to reform our immigration system: 1. Establish a $25 billion trust fund for the border wall system, ports of entry and exit, and northern border improvements 2. Promote nuclear family migration by allowing immigration sponsorships of spouses and minor children only 3. End the visa lottery program 4. Provide legal status for DACA recipients and certain other DACA-eligible illegal immigrants. Do you support or oppose President Trump's framework for immigration reform?"
  • "Do you support or oppose President Trump's imposition of 25 percent tariffs on steel imports and 10 percent tariffs on aluminum imports?"

One glaring issue:

"How can they ask a question requesting a position of Support or Oppose and only offer answers of Yes and No. Clearly whoever is writing them doesn't understand English."

Gender roles have evolved over time, which includes the roles of spouses in a "traditional marriage."

While the concept of traditional marriage is actually quite modern and differed in cultures around the world, most people envision the homes of sitcoms like Father Knows Best and Leave It to Beaver from the 1950s and early 1960s when they think of a traditional marriage.

A tanning addict who admits to soaking up sun without using protection for decades talked to Press Association about how a pink pimple on the end of her nose turned out to be sunbathing-induced skin cancer.

Her nose had to be covered using a radical technique known as a reconstructive skin flap, involving three operations in May and June, after Laure Seguy was diagnosed with skin cancer. She blames her tanning addiction and has now drastically overhauled her relationship with the sun.
