Why Brexit Could Land Donald Trump In The White House

If anyone has been watching the aftermath of Brexit, should try to understand that it's about to have a profound impact on events here at home. Yeah, I'm referencing the election, since we have a lunatic on the other side that is willing to engage in acts of violence against people who are anything short of a White Supreamcist. I know that I've been going back and forth about why Donald Trump would be many times better than Hillary Clinton as President, but it's important to keep a bit of perspective. I, in no way, endorse Trump or his violence, but his entrance into this year's contest has given us the wake up call we needed that we need to bite the bullet and have the national dialogue on race/race relations. My biggest concern with Hillary, if she is nominated, is that she will not be able to hold back the force Trump brings to the presidential race this fall. Hillary's email scandal is not what I'm referencing to, it's the success that the far-right had in the vote for Brexit last Thursday. The type of right-wing populism that Trump represents could destroy this country from within. Hillary's call for moderation, even if she's right, will simply fall on deaf ears.

In a piece in The New York Times op-ed section, Bernie Sanders makes the case to The Democrats that people are very angry and frustrated that the Washington Establishment has been ignoring their cries for help. People in this country are struggling, and their rage could potentially give the GOP, via Trump, The White House in November's election. So far the DNC has been way too tone-deaf to really do anything about everyone else's cries for help. The biggest faction that's been completely ignored, I realize now, is the White working-class male demographic. Trump has done a good job of exploiting their fury for political gain and it could easily get him into the presidency. To any nay-sayers in Hillary's collumn, I want to extend a word of caution: relying on the minority vote will not be enough in November, and that taking their vote for granted is a massive folly. I'm not saying that they'll jump ship and vote for Trump, but many could potentially withhold their support if a Clinton campaign turns out to be as tone-deaf as it has during the primaries. Let's get clear on something, the disaffected vote is trending in Trump's favor at the moment. Unless Hillary and the DNC can make the case that they hear and understand everyone's anger and frustration, they'll just simply vote for Trump.

Just like the Brexiteers, Trump would be a huge step backward for the American people. Think of the race to the bottom that George W. Bush's administration guided us into, and then think about the fact that Trump's presidency would make Bush's seem like childsplay.
