Who We Are

Chris Andrade is writing a beautiful series of essays about America. From his latest, about people he spoke with in Youngstown, Ohio:

I ask him if he was surprised Trump performed so well in the region. “The American public grew impatient with what happened here in the US over the last 16 years, eight under Bush, eight under Obama … I work with Trump voters, and have friends who voted for him. I understand many of them and their anger. I don’t like how it is being expressed, but I see their anger as being about economic issues.”
