The alt-right claims they’re the ones who got Trump into office, but is that true?
There’s no doubt the election of Donald Trump saw an alternative movement on the right propel him to the Presidency. But I don’t believe the movement that put him over the top was the alt-right, the Pepe memes, or a revival of white nationalists who came out of the woodwork to elect him.
I’ll leave that conspiracy theory to the mainstream media.
I believe the true movement that pushed Trump over the top was active and in front of our eyes for years and that was the Tea Party.
Watch as I explain why I believe this and provide some facts to back it up.
Also, let's not forget, the grassroots of the Republican party and middle America had been looking for a candidate who would get tough on illegal immigration, and only Donald Trump brought that to the table during the primary.
And, the biggest reason he won white working class voters across the rust-belt was jobs, jobs and more jobs - and the promise of bringing back manufacturing big league.
Despite best efforts of the dishonest fake news media to convince us that Trump’s election was due to his campaign sending dog-whistles to racists and white supremacists, he was in fact appealing to the Tea Party and the Evangelical base of the country.
But the alt-right and David Duke seem to believe the fake news media and think Trump’s victory was made possible due to a wave of White Nationalism.
I call BS on this because the evidence just doesn’t add up.
