US presidential candidate Donald Trump has a wide lead over all other Republican candidates and is drawing large crowds at campaign stops despite pushing an immigration plan denounced by Leftists and GOP insiders as “extreme” and “unpopular.” CNN notes that “GOP establishment candidates” Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker “are all losing ground” while the politically-incorrect billionaire Trump “continues to dominate the race.” He has more than twice as much support than his closest challengers.
Donald Trump is riding high in the polls with his plans to build a wall across the Mexican border, end birthright citizenship, deport all illegal immigrants, end Federal funding for “sanctuary cities” and lower the number of legal immigrants. He advocates putting native workers first and allowing their pay to rise by cutting off the flow of cheap labor from the Third World, something denounced by chamber-of-commerce-Republican leaders. Liberal, pro-immigration GOP pundits such as George Will have argued that Trump and his supporters should be purged from the party, much as it once forced out Patrick Buchanan. The Left-wing website Salon.com echos Will’s attack on Trump’s candidacy as “the last whimper of the angry white men.” White Christian conservatives, especially Southerners, make up the Republican base of support. As Pat Buchanan has pointed out, “if the GOP has no room for Trump’s followers, then it has no future.” But Republican establishment types such as Charles Krauthammer have ripped Trump and and his supporters while defending Third World immigrants – most of whom vote for the Left against the interests of conservatives.
It should be noted that prior to Trump’s candidacy Southern nationalists were the most vocal and active group challenging the US open borders policy and its resulting displacement of local culture and harmful impact on native workers. Now a quarter of the Republican Party is standing up to GOP elites and the liberal US media, backing a candidate who is pushing our views on this important subject.
Note: The establishment candidates reportedly now believe Trump could win Iowa, the GOP nomination and even the White House. This has them in “full freak out mode.”
