Trump’s Protestors Are Arguably One Of His Strongest Assets
Talk to any Trump supporter (literally, like, any one of them) and they’ll probably tell you that the reason they love Trump so much is because he’s not afraid to speak his mind at the cost of offending someone. He’s not really into all that “politically correct” nonsense. Because of his offensive and abrasive stands on many issues, especially when it comes to immigration, Trump’s rallies attract a much higher-than-average rate of protestors trying to throw a wrench in his game.
The problem, though, is that the protestors are really part of Trump’s game. The opportunity to publicly shame protestors and have them removed from his events only serves as entertainment to reinforce his supporter’s favorite thing about him.
