Why are some people supporting Donald Trump for president? I think that most reasonable people recognize that there are many different reasons why someone might support Trump, although there does appear to be a sizable contingent on the left who have convinced themselves that anyone supporting Trump is doing so because of misogyny, racism, xenophobia, and fascism. But if we set all that aside and actually listen to what the people who support Trump are saying, we just might learn something.
Take Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero), for example. He's been quite vocal in his support for Trump. Across a number of interviews (which can be found on YouTube), he's put forward a fascinating theory about the nature of Trump's support. His most startling point is that it has little to do with any of Trump's policy statements. While he says he supports Trump's plans to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and to fix the problems related to poor trade deals, he acknowledges that he does not expect Trump to accomplish much else. In fact, he seems to view this a positive.
