Where I come from it's the gun rack.

To offer some perspective into how Trump's fans think, here's something a friend shared on social media. I know a lot of people dismiss Trumpers as stupid and crazy. Still, if Democrats and Republicans fail to at least try and understand this mentality, nothing is going to improve or change. Dismissing it as nutty and crazy isn't going to move the country forward.
Simply put, one cannot dismiss 74 million people, that not only voted for him, but voted for him after 4 years of his presidency. In spite of everything that happened since 2016, his support grew by a fifth! Lord knows how, but he has found a way to resonate with millions of Americans who felt the system wasn't working for them. Many of those even know he's not fit for office, yet voted for him anyway!

To look at his record, he also repaid their faith, certainly his middle class and blue collar supporters. Poverty has dropped, inequality has narrowed. American incomes rose five times as much as they did during eight years of President Obama, and this wasn't just the billionaires, those that did best were those at the bottom of the pecking order, low and middle income workers.*

A lot rests now with President Elect Biden, people need to start at least trying to understand that mentality, because to ignore it would be to do so at America's peril.
