Sadly this is why the white working class have turned their backs on Democrats. I highly suggest that people start to look at the poverty and neglect of places like West Virginia. Some of These people cannot read or write and they have no jobs. A con man gets up and tells them he is bringing their jobs back and they all go to vote for him not knowing these are all lies.
These folks have been failed by their representatives for not getting them ready for the end of the coal mining industry by improving schools and skill sets and the people did not take a role in solving their own problems.
The issues are much more complex than people are willing to believe.
