GOP front runner Donald Trump and his supporters seem to know something the rest of the country is just now catching on to.
When asked by KING 5 why she was supporting Trump, New Yorker Karen Bruno said it’s because she’s angry. But further, she said she was so angry at the way things are going in this country, that it doesn’t matter what Trump says — he still has her support.
“I think the more he riles up the establishment, the better I like it. So, He really can’t say anything wrong. Because every time he makes them upset, the more I like it, because I’m so angry,” she told KING 5 outside Trump Tower in New York. “I think the establishment is in cahoots to bring this country down…I don’t know what they’re doing…they’re not making it better.”
Other Trump supporters seem to share her sentiment and Trump knows it. On Saturday, he bragged that he could kill someone in cold blood and still maintain his lead.
“They say I have the most loyal people,” Trump said, “Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible.”
“I think the Democrats have underestimated the anger of the conservatives of this country, really underestimated the anger,” Bruno said.
In the past he’s made comments about banning Muslim people from entering the country, which flies contrary to the Constitution, and has made blanket statements calling Mexican people criminals and rapists. None of this has impacted his performance in the polls.
