Subject: The trouble (i think) is that there are not a whole lot of Trump supporters speaking out against the racist and sexist actions either from Trump or from others

Not only that, while I recognize that people feel Trump's background and previous "success" will give him ideas and approaches to improving the country, I find it hard to see HOW he can do that when he clearly has no respect for at least 50% of the population. In addition, this "success" was made on the backs of bad policies and broken promises which perpetuated the demise of the working Americans he claims to be advocating for. EG, he moved his the production of products overseas for cheaper labor and he didn't pay what he owed to those who contracted with him here.

All that is to say, I haven't seen quite enough evidence from Trump supporters that they disapprove of the racism and the sexism OR that Trump's practices are something that we can somehow get past in order to improve the lives of Americans. But, if he can make the changes necessary to improve the lives of us working people (more industry and living wages (something the GOP has historically been opposed to) without trampling on others, then I will be truly delighted.
