A survey of voters found that Clinton got the working class (except for white workers, who for 50 years have voted Republican) but that the average Trump voter make's 96K a year. The wealthy voted for Trump because he promised tax cuts. The Wall, etc is all bullshit to distract from the real agenda: enriching the rich, through tax cuts and privatization (infrastructure, schools, prisons, etc). The neoliberal program is to transfer public funds into private pockets, a form of legalized theft. Trump and his billionaire friends will all save millions with these new tax cuts, which are the most important issue, the rest all being pandering, wedge issues, distractions, etc.

"If President Trump’s proposed tax cuts are paid for through the types of spending cuts in his budget proposal, the vast majority of Americans — including more than 90 percent of households in the middle fifth of the income spectrum — would be net losers, a new Tax Policy Center (TPC) analysis indicates. The spending cuts and tax increases needed to offset the cost of the tax cuts would cause their incomes to fall much more than they would gain from the tax cuts themselves. (See Figure 1.)
SOONER OR LATER, THE COST WILL NEED TO BE OFFSET THROUGH SOME COMBINATION OF SPENDING CUTS AND TAX INCREASES.This finding reflects the well-documented reality that the Trump tax cuts skew overwhelmingly to the very wealthy. But it also reflects a frequently overlooked reality of a plan that includes net tax cuts of at least $3.5 trillion over the next decade: sooner or later, the cost will need to be offset through some combination of spending cuts and tax increases.

"Short (Trump's top congressional aide) touted the importance of a tax cut. “It is essential to us — right now,”
The rest is distraction. Trump the magician: Watch my right hand (while i pick your pocket with my left).
