What Donald Trump is really saying is that he wants to make America great for WASPS again. When Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again, he is not talking to me, he is warning me. I am Latino. Trump wants a return to the day when WASPS control the country again.
The Donald has been setting up this campaign for years. Donald Trump knows that President Obama was born in the United States, but he knew that racist bigots would support his efforts to cast any doubt on Obama. When Donald Trump said Mexicans were rapists, he was speaking to his base. Trump is speaking to angry white men who think that all the good jobs should be theirs and brown and black people can have the scraps. That is the America that Donald Trump wants to bring back.
He has telegraphed it from the beginning of his campaign. It's that white working class male who is tired of political correctness he's speaking to. It's not just the outspoken clearly racist bigot. It's the guy who bites his tongue and acts like everything is fine but his views have not changed. But it's not all men -- it is also women who are anti-gay, anti-immigrant, who are blaming political correctness for anything that is wrong in their eyes. Some are vocal like Ann Coulter. Others bite their tongues and act like they have evolved, but in reality they are still racist, sexist, and anti-gay.
Then there is the guy who wants his wife at home barefoot and pregnant. Trump knew when he battled with Megyn Kelly that his sexist male base would reward him. Again, women who think they should be at home taking care of the children also respond to Trump.
When Trump says we have to bomb 'em, he's talking to that segment of the population that thinks we should nuke all those Arabs. So often we hear about Trump's gaffes. They are not gaffes -- he knows exactly what he is doing and who his audience is.
