Why I Demonstrated Today at My State Capitol

Rather, I think Trump was the Archie Bunker candidate for many Americans. His populist promises resonated with white, middle-America, but I think its clear from his political appointments that Trump's allegiances are to Wall Street, especially Goldman Sachs.

Trump's rhetoric also prompted me to demonstrate, as it is laden with aggression toward women and ethnic and religious minorities.
