TOP DEMOCRATS ARE WRONG: TRUMP SUPPORTERS WERE MORE MOTIVATED BY RACISM THAN ECONOMIC ISSUES
As for me, I don't know. Half the articles I've read about the election said it was all about race, half the articles said it was all about the economy. I don't know what to believe.

What I do know for sure is that there certainly have been a lot of self-identified Trump supporters who have been doing racist things.
