A sort of Confirmation Bias is what 45 and his ilk give them.

They want to believe that there is someone else responsible for their lot in life. It is far easier to keep selling them the myth that minorities and immigrants are taking things away from them than for us to convince them of the truth. That the Trumps, DeVos's, Kushners, Wall Street, etc. are responsible.

Our totally fucked up, materialistic society has created this problem. Every single one of them wants to BE Donald J. Trump. They believe the myth that he is a successful business man who made his own fortune. They believe all the movies and Shark Tank and other BS that each and every one of them can become a billionaire. So they cannot hate those people whom they are working so hard to become.

They want to be the ugly American, nouveau riche, asshole who can say or do anything and get away with it because they are rich. 45 is their idol. They are certain that some day, some how they are going to "get theirs" and then they will be on top.

Until then, though, it's all the minorities and the immigrants dragging them down. It's an easy sell. They cannot hate the true culprits because they idolize them. Want to be them.
