Millions of white, working-class Americans continue to believe Trump’s biggest lie; he understands your needs and is ‘one of you.’ This is without a doubt his biggest falsehood.
Trump was born into money. Trump has never worked a day in his life. Trump was raised a racist. Trump was sent away to boarding school at age 13. Trump inherited hundreds of millions of dollars from his father. Trump steals from charities; he has never given a dollar to one. Trump is a confirmed draft dodger. Trump cares about Donald J. Trump and no one else.
Trump’s ego constantly rears its weak little head. This is what Trump said about 800,000+ men and women who are without pay; some of them still forced to do their jobs.
“I can relate, and I’m sure that the people that are on the receiving end will make adjustments, they always do, and they’ll make adjustments. People understand exactly what’s going on. But many of those people that won’t be receiving a paycheck, many of those people agree 100% with what I’m doing.”
Only 35 percent of all Americans believe that shutting down the government to get his way about an unnecessary wall is a good idea. And most of them are loyal supporters. I agree with Trump that if he was to shoot someone in the head in the Oval Office, a jury composed of his basket of deplorables would not convict him.
Millions of Americans expect lies from Washington politicians, but in 21st century America your illegitimate president cannot be trusted.
