This seems to be where Trump comes in. He fills a hole among the history-illiterates, the people who have no clue about how history has shaped us today. Trump just said, “I’m awesome and you shouldn’t be ashamed for being white, right?” That’s enough. Our neighbor has a bumper sticker: Trump 2020 Make Liberals Cry Again. I could (almost) respect someone who votes for Trump for his policies, but the only reason is to see people he disagrees with being upset. Trump hates who they hate and affirms their fear of people who he says are scary.
I never slept over in Washington. I was in Washington, I think, 17 times. All of a sudden, I’m president of the United States. You know the story. I’m riding down Pennsylvania Avenue with our first lady and I say, ‘This is great,’” But I didn’t know very many people in Washington, it wasn’t my thing. I was from Manhattan, from New York. Now, I know everybody, and I have great people in the administration. You make some mistakes. Like, you know, an idiot like Bolton. The only thing he wanted to do was drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to kill people.
