@Barnes_Law I grew up in a powerful family. My dad (Gale Banks) has achieved a lot of success due to his brilliance and hard work. He started as a early hot rodder in SoCal (50’s) and set many world records. Today he builds every engine for the military’s JLTV (Humvee’s replacement). He was
@Barnes_Law the son of an LAPD cop (middle class family). No handouts or hand-ups. I grew up around many self made men like him. They never forgot their roots and still don’t. Like Trump, they relate to the normal blue collar Americans more than to the blue bloods.

When my brother went back
@Barnes_Law East to college, he was surrounded by a different kind of wealthy kid. He wore blue jeans and they told him “blue jeans are for commoners.” He came home and went to school on the West Coast after a year.

The “elites” don’t give a damn about anyone but themselves. Trump’s not
@Barnes_Law like them and that’s why he connects with real voters.
