A friend, who is a self described ultra conservative Republican is a rabid supporter of Donald Trump. When I challenged him that Trump is a buffoon and train wreck he agreed. This guy is a former elected Republican representative in the state of New York.
When I questioned him further he stated that the status quo in American government (Hillary Clinton) will continue the meteoric decline of the nation and that Trump or a person like him is the only hope for restoring the nation to its former status.
Like many Americans he admits to being terrified at what is happening in his country and considers Trump a possible Savior-despite all of the obvious flaws the man has.
