I do not consider Trump to be a normal conservative. Trump is appealing to beliefs that are racist.
There are a wide range of political beliefs held by Americans.
- Some of these political beliefs can be called "conservative".
- Some of these political beliefs are "racist" beliefs.
Not all conservative beliefs are racist. There are people with conservative political policies that I respect. I have no problem with people who want to reign in spending, cut the size of government or oppose abortion. These are all positions that I disagree with, but there are reasoned arguments for them.
Donald Trump isn't making reasoned arguments for any set of conservative positions. He is using fear and anger to drum up emotional support from a class of white voter who blame minorities for their problems.
If I were a conservative, I would be disavowing Donald Trump.
