Donald Trump's speech Monday to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) showed voters what he will look like as the campaign continues, columnist Roger Stone tells Newsmax TV.
"Donald Trump is a radical Zionist – who knew?" Stone said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."
Stone said Trump hit all the "hot buttons" in the speech, vowing to tear up the Iran nuclear deal and move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
"He has always said that he is an unabashed supporter of Israel," Stone said. "He fleshed it out. This is the new Trump."
As the race continues, Trump will get more specific on issue positions, he said.
The speech was the first since his campaign began where Trump worked from a written speech, and Stone said that was important because Trump was talking substantive policy issues.
It is important to have his exact words "because it makes it much harder for Lyin' Ted Cruz to distort them," Stone said.
Stone said Trump is not a pure conservative, but is "the best choice for conservatives this year" because on the top issues facing the country, Trump has the most reliable and hardest line conservative position — and actually gets things done.

Stone warned of "Trojan horse delegates" he said who are falsely claiming to be Trump supporters, but would vote against him on procedural matters, including rules changes that would rob Trump of the nomination.
"The Republican establishment, many of whom wear a second hat as lobbyists, will never throw in the towel," Stone said.
Stone predicted Trump will win Arizona on Tuesday, but admitted Trump's attack on Mitt Romney's Mormonism has likely hurt him in Utah, where he said 60 percent of GOP primary voters are Mormons.
