Americans are unhappy with various facets of current institutions and politics. Over two-thirds of us believe that the economic system favors the wealthy and that government wastes a lot of our money.
In addition, over 60 percent believe that special interests use their money to get their way most or all of the time and that the government does not care about people like them. This perception was already rising by the time of the economic crisis of 2007-2008. Afterward, it began accelerating rapidly. Is the rise of Donald Trump a product of this displeasure?
Trump is famous for telling the truth, supposedly, but what has he said about the 2nd Amendment, his thinking on picking a supreme court justice, his understanding of and beliefs about foreign policy, and/or his criteria for what makes a nation great? You can tell the truth easily if you never say anything substantive.
Am I missing something? What does Trump say he believes about the important issues?
