Like his supporters President Trump is clinging to the past he grew up in rather than embracing the future he's truly living in now. In all fairness he and his base are correct about people trying to erase much of what their ancestors did so who can truly blame them? Isn't part of our contention as minorities that we want our ancestors' contributions known too? That very double standard both sides claim each other perpetuates against them are major yet legitimate sticking points that fuel much of the frustration the uncompromising of both sides feel against each other.
I believe the key to understanding President Trump is he's a white version of black President Obama. When we look at their similarities they come out as two of a kind where one's base considered him the great black hope while the other's consider him the great white hope. Both claim their own version of hope and change as they trampled on customs their opposition hold most sacred. Both were new to the national and international political arenas so naturally their inexperience initially cost them dearly as they made tremendous social and political blunders after blunders.
I guess everything that's happened with both Presidents shows only too well just how little we truly know about each other. Sure hope we start looking at our similarities rather than our differences because we see how concentrating on the latter sure helps keep us divided.
