President Donald Trumps path to the White House was paved in large measure by white working-class voters. But he isnt exactly returning the favor to these Americans, who are dying in shockingly high numbers in middle age.

Even if the deaths WERE during Trump’s watch, I don’t think the middle class whites voted for him because the government wasn’t involved ENOUGH in their lives. I think they wanted the goobermint to butt OUT and let them make their own decisions.
Eight years of Obama damn near killed a lot of us!
Please whoever, stop posting the Sac Bee stuff.
These people are beyond help of any kind
what a crap article and crap connection to Pres. Trump
They really must think people are stupid. Some are, of course. So they expect the President to snap his fingers and reverse a trend that has been going on for decades? I’m sure he would if he could, but the average working class person knows better than that and apparently editorial boards do not.
Hey SacBee, you mean to tell me that they just started dropping dead the second after Trump was inaugurated??
You have to appreciate the Sacramento Bee, where even the editorial page has Fake News.
To understand what ails white working-class America, the SacBee's editors need to read Charles Murray's 'Coming Apart The State of White America, 1960-2010.'
But they won't ... because the Snowflake Left has branded Murray 'raaacissssst.'
The entire “editorial board” of the Bee needs to pee in a cup.
DURING FIRST BLACK PRESIDENTS TENURE, WHITE WORKING CLASS DEATH RATES SKYROCKET!
The actual raw numbers are so small, they are probably within the margin of error.
From the Brookings Institute study: “For white men, the rate rose by 130%...and for women by 380%...”
1999 - 0.085% of white males were “deaths-of-despair”
2015 - 0.196% of white males were “deaths-of-despair”
1999 - 0.024% of white females were “deaths-of-despair”
2015 - 0.115% of white females were “deaths-of-despair”
In other words, after 15 years, the rate went up:
A little more than 0.1% for white men.
A little less than 0.1% for white females.
White liberal progressive mental patient snowflakes siding with the enemy to annihilate thier own race. The last words you hear are, “but but but but, Im on your side” pop! pop! pop! pop! pop!
I just checked the historical USA death rate for most of the years in the study.
Almost every USA agency publishes different numbers.
Anyway, I used the CDC Vital Statistics web site.
Between 1999 and 2015, the total USA death rate per 100,000 went from 880 down to 820.
I think the Brookings Institute really had to torture the numbers to get a 130% and 380% increase in “deaths-of-despair” for white males and females.
Can’t wait for the Sac Bee to opine about the effect Jerry Brown’s ten cent a gallon tax hike has on California’s working class.
Pretty funny coming from the SacBee wile the State of California is doing everything possible to destroy the Entire Middle Class, with an Emphasis on Killing and eradicating Whites.
Geez, I fogot. Rome was built in a day.
Trump can not be logically blamed for the previous decades of the working and tax paying people being forced to pay for the lazy, affirmative filth, just plain bad segments of society.
I have no doubt that there are plenty people, some of whom infest this forum, who are either congenitally or ideologically incapable of thinking that through.
>who are either congenitally or ideologically incapable of thinking that through.
That alone has allowed the welfare class to milk the cow dryer and dryer. Even in an infinite world of ignorance limited only by time and future inhabitants can such graft and sloth be enabled.
The high death of whitey was in Obama’s administration. It was the aftermath of the real estate bubble bust where a high percentage of middle class people lost their homes and their wealth.
