Trump (& Supporters) Would Take The U.S. back To 1950's
Trump has said he wants to "Make America Great Again". Some wonder what he means by that. But his followers know. They (and their hero) want an America like the one that existed in the 1950's -- where white males ruled the country, and everyone else knew their place (in the kitchen, in the back of the bus, or in the closet). An America where corporations were unquestioned and the rich were idolized. An America where the government was not questioned, where christianity was king (and non-christians were demonized), and where pollution was not a worry.
