In politics, fear is a tremendously useful tool to gain public approval and power. This article illustrates a strong undercurrent of belief among white Americans that only white people are trustworthy.

The consequence in this election is votes by Democrats and Independents, not just Republicans, that will  support strongman Trump’s attitude that the nation must be protected against immigrants and foreigners.  How far could this go? Concentration camps?  World war?

This election issue requires all of us to get involved in honest talks with our neighbors and families.  About our values and where they lead us.  About voting at all levels and how that will effect our lives.

How Many People Support Trump but Don’t Want to Admit It?
