Billions of people around the world stand with the "deplorables"

While many people in the U.S. complain that their president does not act like a politician, rightfully so, and in fact he is sometimes brash and rude and they don’t like the way he tweets, why are there such large pro-America, pro-Trump rallies in the U.S. of 10,000 to 50,000 people?
Unless you are truly a middle-class person, or a “deplorable,” you may not understand it. He’s not only empowered the middle class, but he’s given people who believe in American exceptionalism a voice and that includes not only Americans, but people around the globe who are trapped in cultures that long for our freedoms.
President Donald Trump touts American free speech, freedom of religion, gun rights, school choice, border security, farming, U.S. manufacturing, hard work, small-business support, etc. He’s not only given the middle class a voice, but he’s invited them to the table. Because he’s not a politician but a businessman who has dined with them and worked with every type and class of worker, he understands how important each one is and how important they are to the fabric of America. While he certainly is a capitalist, he understands their faith in God, family and country is more important to them than profit.
Even more interesting is, “Why are there pro-America, pro-Trump rallies in other countries?” I was watching with amazement a parade of thousands of people in Uganda and wondering about this myself. But I realized it was not only Uganda, but China, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, India, Vietnam and many more countries. Why do they take the time and also the risk to show their support for Trump?
Here’s why. Our politicians, Wall Street, the NBA, Hollywood, big business, social media oligarchs, universities, etc. have all been racing to bend the knee to China and the Chinese Communist Party. It’s financially good for them, and they turn a blind eye to the human rights abuses of the Muslim Uyghurs, Christians and Falon Gong followers in “reeducation camps,” the organ harvesting industry, the cyberspying and theft, etc. They aren’t against Chinese slave or low wage labor because it benefits them. If they are supportive of the CCP, they can continue to make a lot of money and that is what is most important to them.
China only allows so many American movies in each year and if you are favorable to the CCP in your movie, you have a chance to reach an audience of billions of Chinese people and make a lot of money. If you are manufacturing widgets, you can get them made for a fraction of what it costs in America and make a lot of money. If you are a social media platform, a news giant or the NBA, you have the incentive to work with and support the CCP so you can make more money. If you are a university, you are incentivized by their money and Confucius centers to support the CCP. If you are a politician, you can sell your influence through family members and make millions. It’s all about money.
What Chinese Americans explain is that Trump is the first president to act in defiance to China, the CCP and Xi Jinping. It reminds me of President Ronald Reagan, June 12, 1987, when he said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
They explain that the Chinese people, under the CCP regime do not enjoy our freedoms and the American dream they’ve now gotten a taste of includes free speech, freedom of religion, the rule of law and the freedom to work hard and prosper. They see Trump standing up to the CCP and standing for America, and it gives them hope that they can also stand up for themselves against the controlling CCP. The Chinese people are amazing people, and they are rooting not just for the work Trump started but for America in general.
There are many who believe that a great awakening is happening right now, and people are waking up to the fight against authoritarianism, Communism, Marxism, critical race theory, etc. They believe that the very foundation of our country is at stake, and the deplorables are tired of being told to just be quiet, don’t bring division, don’t cause any trouble, just work hard, pay your taxes, send your sons and daughters to fight our wars and don’t upset the power structure. There are now billions of amazing Chinese, Taiwanese, Indian, Ugandans, etc. who are on the side of the deplorables, so I think no matter what happens in the next month, they may have already won.
