...” Many here do seem to resent Trump for his success”...

I don;t think people resent Trumps success at all....I think it’s more people don’t like it when elites claim they had it rough as if they relate to the common man....Trump was not the common man in respect of the advantages he had and should not try to equate on that level.

Trump is not an elite. He worked with his dad, from the time he was young, invested what inheritance money he received, and has instilled those same American values in his kids (you work for/earn what you get).

George Washington wasn’t a “common man”, either. He inherited a very nice sum from his father. Washington “equated with that level”, quite well, I would say.
