Trump won Kenosha County, Wisconsin, by fewer than 300 votes; it’s a county that had not voted for a Republican in a presidential election in nearly 50 years. Last night, Bernie Sanders held a town hall meeting with Trump voters to discuss their decision.
After watching this town hall, and hearing Sanders' message, I'm confident he would have won last month's election. He has the character and credentials of an outsider. Sure, there are things I have disagreements with him about, no candidate will ever be perfect, but he was the only other "change candidate," and he was willing to engage with people who were 100 percent against him. He wasn't beholden, nor cared what the elites thought. It's a fascinating watch from Kenosha Wisconsin.
So whether you agree or disagree with Bernie, I think it's worth noting we have to talk to people we don't agree with. That lines of communication must be opened though so we can work with people who have been forgotten. The person that voted for Trump most likely isn't a racist, they have different priorities and not addressing those priorities is why we have the president-elect we have (and the argument would've been the same, no matter who won).
