Donald Trump’s supporters have trouble understanding why liberals are shunning them

Donald Trump’s supporters have trouble understanding why liberals are shunning them

From the article:

At the same time, as The New York Times reported, people who have been on the fence about Trump often say they wind up supporting him due to the attitudes they perceive from liberals.

They continue to blame Liberals because that is vastly easier than admitting they have poor political judgement.

Let's dispel the myth that Republicans give a shit about cutting the budget to save money.

The amounts of money they want to spend building a useless wall and providing security for Trump's weekly vacation in Palm Beach and security for his family in New York dwarfs any amount of funding these institutions receive.

Johnathan Karl: "I have reported in countries not only complain about a critical press, but also try to shut it down, throwing reporters in prison or worse. I've seen my colleagues risk their lives, and with increasing frequency lose their lives in the pursuit of the truth... We are not about to stop doing our jobs because yet another president is unhappy with what he reads or hears or sees on TV news. There's a reason the founders put freedom of the press in the very first amendment to the constitution. As long as American democracy remains healthy, there will be reporters willing to pursue the truth, even if that means incurring the wrath of the most powerful person in the world."

This quote resonated with me heavily, and I find the idea that people will continue to pursue the truth, even if their lives are at risk, comforting in light of this administrations attacks on the media.
