Trump and Republicans

It is a common argument for many traditional Republicans to argue that Donald Trump is an aberration from their traditional views. But let’s take a look. Since Nixon, the party has played up racism among white voters, particularly in the south, cut taxes for the wealthy, been anti science in denying the existence of climate change, was opposed to abortion rights, and pandered to right wind religious bigots. Trump of course has advocated all these things on steroids. But the reason he is still supported by the Republican masses despite his instance behavior is that his views are in agreement with those of the Republican Party. Written by Paul Dribin
