Sunday night, Donald Trump (once again) pushed back against a New York Times report suggesting the gaffe-prone lunatic might be willing to “adjust his tone” going into the general election, promising in an oddly inspirational tweet to never, ever change.

“I have always been the same—remain true to self,” wrote Trump. “The media wants me to change but it would be very dishonest to supporters to do so!”

In a followup tweet, Trump appeared to address criticism from within the Republican party about his inability to “stay on message,” blaming the media for the perception that he’s constantly saying wacky shit.

For months now, Trump’s advisors have suggested a “pivot” is just around the corner, but as much as his positions might change, Republicans must know the candidate himself never will.
