The Cruz campaign says you can’t trust Donald Trump because he’s not a reliable conservative and obviously evangelicals will need to sift through that on their way to the voting booth.

It’s true that Trump has gone from being pro-choice to pro-life. So how did that happen exactly and can he be trusted on this issue?

I asked him that during our very first interview back in 2011 when he was thinking about running for president. Watch below from The Brody File video library.

David Brody: Evangelicals do want to feel secure that they’re going to have a nominee that’s going to at least be solid on those issues, those social issues. Someone that’s not just going to cut and move on.

Donald Trump: One thing about me, I'm a very honorable guy. I'm pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago. One of the reasons I changed -- one of the primary reasons -- a friend of mine's wife was pregnant, in this case married.
She was pregnant and he didn't really want the baby. And he was telling me the story. He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye.It's the greatest thing that's ever happened to him.

And you know here's a baby that wasn't going to be let into life. And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life.

Brody: So those stories did change you, they came around and changed you?

Trump: They changed me. Yeah, they changed my view as to that, absolutely.

The Cruz campaign will point out that Trump's positions have changed on a number of issues, not just the life issue. Does it matter to you? Do you trust Trump? Tweet your comments to me @thebrodyfile.
