“[Trump’s] one of us. He talks to people like he wants them to talk to him,” one Nebraskan told CNN’s Alex Marquardt.
CNN ran a segment on Wednesday that asked voters in America’s heartland, six months into Trump’s presidency, if they thought Trump had delivered on his promise to make America great again.
CNN’s Alex Marquardt found that Nebraskans do think Trump is delivering on his promise to make America great again.
Bob Hilger, a 72-year-old farmer, told Marquardt that he “was really impressed with all the things [Trump] has accomplished.”
“I didn’t think that he would meet with as much resistance from people who refuse to acknowledge that [Trump] is the President of the United States,” Hilger continued.
Hilger didn’t blame Trump for the Republicans’ failed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare, telling Marquardt that Trump has been obstructed in every way possible.
“[Trump] is laying the groundwork for the future for us, for the military, for our national security, and for employing people,” Hilger said about Trump’s accomplishments.
Hilger also didn’t have a problem with Trump’s tweeting, telling Marquardt, “He’s one of us. He talks to people like he wants them to talk to him. He talks to people like I like to talk to people.”
Nebraska residents Ann and Larry Sabata blamed distractions like the Russian investigation for lack of progress.
“The result that matters most…to so many here is that Trump is in office and their voice is heard,” Marquardt concluded.
