Trump’s base is uneducated and racist. Normally, these people would be ignored. Under our current president however, this demographic is actually deciding legislation that affects our country. Trump does everything to please his base. Hence, he strives to satisfy them and sculpts his legislation to gain their approval. Think about that. Our president is being led by people who respect Nazis and want entire races deported.
The past two weeks, every news program has those disturbing images of little toddlers being separated from their parents. Other channels may have clips of parents being dragged away from their kids and then deported. Me and you might cringe to see such disgusting clips. Trump supporters however, love to see them. To them, the footage depicts America finally cleansing itself.
Rick Wilson is a GOP strategist, and a Trump critic. During a CNN interview, he explained how Trump’s administration is using those disgusting videos as a tool.
I think the pictures of the cruelty of this administration are a very deliberate part of this,” Wilson said. “They are a feature, not a bug, of the Trump administration’s policy. And so I think we’re in a situation where no one inside the administration is unhappy about these things because they are only talking to their base, they’re only talking to their core supporters.”
Wilson added: “And their core supporters want anybody who’s darker than a latte deported. They’re not happy about immigration of any kind. They don’t believe in the asylum process. They want to take and separate these families as a matter of deterrence and as a sort of theater of cruelty. I think it really doesn’t speak well to their moral standing.”
Upon further questioning, Wilson confirmed that he believed the administration, including senior White House adviser Stephen Miller, wants the images of children separated from their parents in order to rev up Trump’s base. Newsweek
Lots of Trump’s initial base had lost their jobs to cheap illegal labor. That was one of the biggest complaints Trump heard during the campaign. Instead of tearing apart families and deporting fathers and mothers, you’d think a much easier way to rectify this dilemma, would be to fine the companies that hire illegal aliens. Trump campaigned on punishing companies that hire oversea labor. Except, he would be punishing himself, cause his resorts are entirely stocked with foreign labor. PoliticalHaze
The solution is right there. Fine the business owners who hire illegals over Americans to save money. However, that would mean Trump would be fining himself and his wealthy republicans donors. It is much easier to just tear apart crying little toddlers from their deporting parents.
Deporting these families is a win-win for Trump. His wealthy donors don’t have to pay anything. He keeps on hiring cheap foreign workers. Plus, the clips on the news of the crying toddlers convince his base that Trump is getting things done.
