Let me ask you a question, up until Donald Trump made his anti-Mexican comments, did anyone take him seriously? Did anyone listen to him? Was he really a contender? I think the answer to that is no.
Once he made those statements, and jumped on that “Make America Great Again” nonsense, that is when he became popular with the far right wing. Particularly those who are very anti-immigration.
Look at these memes and the bull crap that people are buying about this 1 percenter! As if he really cares about us! Mind you, I feel the same about Hillary Clinton. They are cut from the same cloth, and neither of them cares about you, me, or our children.
