9. Trump is going after the people that they hate, mainly Liberals.

Liberals are seen as White race traitors. There are people in this country who believe that their race, White, and religion, Christianity, entitle them to ALL of the benefits that the country has to offer. All other races, religions, ethnicities should have to work 5 times as hard to get half as much as they have.

Liberals fight for and push for equality of opportunity which they see as something being taken away from them and given to people less deserving. This mindset cuts across economic lines. Better off White supporters of Trump think that they're tax dollars will be taken away from them and given to underserving Blacks and immigrants. Poorer White supporters of Trump think that it was the trade deals or that the Democrats only care about the Blacks in the inner cities.

In sum, Trump supporters are well aware of the privileges of being White, and to them Trump fights to maintain their privileges.
