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.
Again...am not saying Trump hasn’t earned and worked for his wealth....but we all know he cannot claim he understands the common man’s plight nor should he profess so when his advantages were well beyond the advantages most would have.
And yes Trump is an elite.....we’ve all quite clearly seen his behavior displayed.....
