GOP Frontrunner Trump Maintains “Don’t Touch” Stance on Social Security - Yahoo Finance

In a post yesterday on, contributor Vance Cariaga offers an update on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s position on campaign hot button Social Security. The update, in essence, is that there has been no change in Trump’s position that his presidency would entail no changes to either Social Security or Medicare, despite the growing concerns over the projected relatively near-term depletion of both programs’ trust fund reserves.

While the Cariaga article, which you can read in full here, references Trump’s public statements regarding preservation of these senior benefit programs, he includes a retrospective on the candidate’s similar position in his successful 2016 presidential campaign and his 2020 budget proposals. The article cites similar 2016 comments on preserving Social Security and Medicare, and contrasts these against Trump’s 2020 budget proposals and the reported reductions outlined for these programs. He concludes with commentary regarding the Social Security Administration’s operational funding problems and the suggested impact that further budget cuts could have on customer service.

In the runup to the 2024 presidential election, it’s expected that the rhetoric on Social Security will continue to sharpen, since it’s an area of considerable focus in various voting blocks. Stay tuned as candidates on both sides of the floor sharpen their focus on this pivotal issue.
