The pushback against Donald Trump is about far more than Republican “elites” at war with Republican voters, which is what some claim.
They say that Trump captured the strong anti-establishment sentiments of voters and that an entrenched Washington establishment won’t accept this new reality.
Understand that Trump, a man with ambition and no principles, is not anti-establishment. “Establishment” is not about whether you work in politics or live in Washington. It is about the unprincipled, promiscuous use of power to advance personal interests, with disregard for any sense of truth and integrity, or the national welfare. This is Donald Trump.
After becoming a Christian conservative many years ago, I became a Republican to fight for limited government and traditional values.
As a former welfare mother, who saw her communities being destroyed by the Democrat left-wing agenda, I fought for welfare reform. As result, I was invited to speak at the Republican National Convention in 1996.

This included Trump’s support for Harlem’s Charlie Rangel, the Black Caucus Democrat who represented everything that was destroying America’s minority communities.Read the rest of Star Parker's op-ed HERE.
