How to Talk to Trump Supporters


Robert Reich, Economist and former U.S. Secretary of Labor, shared on Facebook this week his confrontation with a Trump supporter. His response to the man’s reasons for supporting Trump is a priceless example of how to talk to Trump supporters.

Reich says that he approached the supporter after grabbing his morning coffee and seeing a Trump bumper sticker on the man’s car. Curious about his reasons for supporting Trump, he and the man discussed the following:

Reich is correct in pointing out the well-known fact of Trump inheriting his wealth (although the true amount of how much he inherited is still up in the air).  And just recently, news broke of the nearly $900 million in tax breaks that Trump received while building his real estate empire.

So there you have it, just in case you were wondering how to politely deal with the most sane individuals (the jury is out on how to deal with the others) that support Trump.
