The most interesting thing about this argument is that Trump will be re-elected if the economy is good in 2020. He will lose his re-election if the economy is bad. His "base" didn't have it so good under Obama and is hoping this change of leadership will help them and the rest of the country.
Trump's strongest support is among these white nationalists. These are the core of his base. His refusal to disavow literal Nazis is both alarming and horrifying.
