The support for the real estate billionaire shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone paying attention to the presidential race so far. According to Real Clear Politics, Trump has the support of nearly 28 percent of registered Republicans in an average of recent national polls. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson sits in second place with just under 20 percent.
But perhaps those who lamented their pro-Trump relatives on Twitter thought that it was other peoples’ families that are supporting the reality TV star.
The Trump truths proved too difficult for some Thanksgiving dinner attendees. Many said they had to leave the table while their family members praised The Donald.
my uncle was seriously talking to my family about how he supports trump & my aunt and I had to leave the room and comfort each other
