Trump backers don't see the real Trump

Trump derangement syndrome? A spate of recent letters suggest Trump supporters suffer from this. A letter published on Feb. 25 suggested that Trump is “a common-sense redneck American first.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. Trump was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, attended pricey private schools, and never worked an honest day in his life — at any real job.

Actually, he’s spent most of his adult life trying to steal from honest hardworking Americans; whether by running casinos, cheating them out of their wages, refusing to pay contractors for work done, swindling students with his phony “university,” or continually employing illegal aliens in his many hotels and golf courses.

Does Trump pay taxes? Who knows? He refuses to release his tax returns. So he may pay no taxes at all, unlike Joe and Jane six-pack.
