Why people who voted for Trump tell me they didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

Let’s take a look at some of these comments that left me reacting like…

She just isn’t likeable.

The Clintons seem sketchy/slimey. Especially the Clinton Foundation.

“Well, the Donald J. Trump Foundation has been around since the late ’80s, which is sort of a foundation that’s set up to give Trump’s money away. But it’s actually not that at all. For many of the recent years, between 2009 and 2015, it didn’t actually get any money from Trump at all. Instead, he gave away other people’s money to the people who thought they were getting Trump’s money.”

The email thing just turned me off. I can’t believe she used a private email server.

“Donald Trump’s senior White House staff including Kellyanne Conway, Jared Kushner, Sean Spicer and Steve Bannon all use a private RNC email server, according to a Newsweek report published Wednesday. This is the same RNC email server that mysteriously disappeared 22 million messagesduring George W Bush’s administration and the one that US intelligence services believe was compromised by the Russians at the same time as the DNC’s, earlier this year.”

What the Clintons did to African Americans with Wellfare Reform was destructive.

She makes excuses for why she lost, she’s not taking ownership over her flaws.

She lies.

“There is simply no precedent for an American president to spend so much time telling untruths. Every president has shaded the truth or told occasional whoppers. No other president — of either party — has behaved as Trump is behaving. He is trying to create an atmosphere in which reality is irrelevant.”

She’s part of the political establishment, and will be influenced by special interests/the wealthy elite. She won’t change things.

“Anyone notice a pattern here? The key beneficiaries of these measures are construction companies and contractors, Internet service providers, the energy industry, coal mining companies, loggers, and even gun sellers. This looks suspiciously like the big donors and special interests that Trump decried on the campaign trail.”

— The Boston Globe

She’s demeaning to certain voters. Especially with that “Deplorables” comment.
