It is possible to support Donald Trump and not be a bigot

It is possible to support Donald Trump and not be a bigot.

The widest political divide in America right now is between those who believe this is true and those who do not.

What’s worse – what makes this divide wider – is that those who believe it is true and support Trump and are not bigots are hesitant to publicly support him. I was, until now. Why? Because I was once called a bigot for merely hinting that the fact of his appeal.

I’m not a bigot. The above statement is true. People who support Trump aren’t merely seeking a bigot to put in the White House to enact bigoted policies that reflect their bigoted views. Instead, let a man far wiser than me, who adamantly opposes Trump and almost everything he stands for, explain their reasoning:

These folks are not monsters. They are not all racists, sexists, and xenophobes. They are your neighbors and friends. They go to your house of worship. They are the cashiers you exchange pleasantries with at the grocery store.

What many of them are, I suspect, is tired of being told that they are racists etc because they do not completely buy into the (liberal) elite agenda. They are tired of being called backward because of their religiosity or their gun ownership. They are tired of being told others know better how to raise their kids than they do. They are tired of working hard, raising their kids, participating in their communities, and then being told they are the problem. And they tired of empty promises that they could keep their plan and see their costs go down.”
