How did blue-collar voters connect with a millionaire from Queens in the 2016 election? Martin and Illie Anderson Senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson addresses that question and more in his newly released book, The Case for Trump. He sits down with Peter Robinson to chat about his motivation to write a book making a rational case for those voters who chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Hanson and Robinson, the Murdoch Distinguished Policy Fellow, discuss how voters connected with Trump’s “personal authenticity” during the campaign and how the media has a “historical amnesia” of the bad behavior of past presidents when talking about President Trump. The president, Hanson argues, was always an outsider from elite society in Manhattan, which helped him to better to connect with voters who felt like outsiders. He analyzes President Trump’s platform agenda, which was composed 80% of traditionally conservative views with the remaining 20% being radical ideas that fit with many of the views of the midwestern states. He breaks down why, in the end, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich didn’t appeal to voters in the way that Trump managed to.
Hanson turns to talk about his background and life growing up in California’s Central Valley and how different the area feels now compared to when he was younger. He talks about seeing the majority of the family-run farms being steadily replaced with large commercial operations and how that’s drastically impacted the workforce and economics of the region. He goes on to discuss issues of water protection and water quality in the Central Valley and how Bay Area elites prioritize their water quality over that of the rural farmers.

The US made a big mistake electing Biden. I think had not the pandemic come along, President Trump would have cruised to a second term victory. I think his one failing is that he should have had his staff vet his tweets, and perhaps done fewer press conferences.

Donald Trump isn't a career politician. That will get my vote based on the fact that he has not been paid his entire career off of public funds. He didn't even take a check during his Presidency, a true Patriot. Nobody should spend their life being a politician. Public servants who want power careers wind up being the epitome of Pelosi and Biden =worthless and costly to the American people. They only care about lobbyist concerns and how much power and wealth they can accumulate. The people they are supposed to work for become totally irrelevant and it shows.

Thank you for bringing out the positive and some negative of Presidents Trumps personality but you bring out his Genius as a President and his ability to identify with all Americans. His overview of world leaders has brought the World together where the European and global peoples have seen President Trump as a world leader who gives people a desire for Freedom. Communism does not work and people know this. We Americans don’t want the social destruction of American Patriotism and Freedoms. Biden will never be accepted by the majority of American Patriots. We want Justice where those Corrupt Politicians are toppled and arrested for their evils against the innocent children, young girls and boys who are subjugated to their evil intents and atrocities aka Epstein slavery victims. We know Obama’s sins, Clinton sins, Pelosi sins, Comey and many in the Swamp. Americans want this place drained. I give A++++++ for sharing the high lights from your book. I want to read your book, you have a view many of us have but you speak for us. Don’t quit writing Truth. I don’t believe He’s through yet. The voting was stolen, he will go down as the best President we have ever had! Obama,will go down as the worst. Americans love Trump! Biden is a joke and embarrassing to the world!

There is a constantt drum without exception that all politicians and citizens defer to invariably: numbers count. Governance necessarily must defer to an accounting system . In the simplist means when arithmetically applied:one person, one vote. Under curent means, numbers or one-person has no relation to measure of population interests or means of determeance of personal expression of multiple interests.. Accordingly, individual interests are subverted by and obviscated by a nondescript but omnipresent sack of turds. So, don't get too high on that horse, choose the jackas.(not the donkey) sc on

We have several million voters that think this election was rigged and mounds of evidence to prove it. The people’s last best hope for justice should always be our Supreme Court with issues examined openly for ALL TO SEE! An HONEST elections is as important as the nuclear launch codes for NATIONAL SECURITY!!! The Supreme Court should reconsider their refusal to hear this case or all 9 of them needs to give a reason why not that will satisfy millions of Americans Voters on a LIVE nationwide broadcast so comments CAN NOT be edited.

"The crazies, the irredeemable"...I don't care if these elitist snobs are conservative or not, to call close to 80 million Americans crazy and irredeemable just in the first few minutes of the interview, puts them in the same camp, crazy and irredeemable disingenuous hypocritical elitist snobs. Not worthy of our attention any longer.

I voted for President Trump. Twice. Why? Because you do not send a preacher to a gun fight. You send a fighter like Trump. ‘Christian America’ needs to realize this... All the Mighty Men & Women of scripture did violent acts to protect the masses from tyrannical forms of governments. Our Creator only allowed Yisrael fall due to disobedience to their Elohim Ye’hovah. America needs to clean our hs of lawlessness & wickedness. And call on His name Ye’hovah. Read Malaki. I overlook Trumps disposition because that is better than religious self righteousness. Go Trump!!!!!!!
