CNN traveled to Youngstown, Ohio, to discuss the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency with a group of Democrats who voted Republican in 2016.
Reporter Martin Savidge sat down with the group, evidently expecting that at least one of them would have regrets about his decision.
But alas, ’twas not to be.
Every single person Savidge talked to said he was still on the Trump Train.

“We’re one year in,” Savidge asked. “How’s he doing?”
Here was a sampling of the responses:
- “Better than I ever would have dreamt.”
- “He’s doing wonderful.”
One of the interviewees went so far as to take a subtle shot at CNN and the mainstream media during the segment. Savidge had asked the man why he doesn’t get outraged at the president’s mean-spirited tweets. Here was his answer:
Because if all he had to rely on was what people say about him, oh, my God, I might not like the guy. But I love the guy. I love the job he’s doing.
Driving the final nail into the narrative’s coffin was a minority student, who argued that the president is unfairly branded as a racist.
“He was just the nicest person,” she said discussing a meeting with Trump at a rally. “And honestly, if he was a racist as everyone paints him out to be, he could have just walked right past me and not even said a word.”
Savidge made one final effort to get the panel of Trump supporters to say they had some regrets:
I wanted to find out if there was any buyer’s remorse on the part of any of those voters I was talking to so I asked them, I said, ‘If you could do it over, would you vote the same way?’ Every one of them said they [sic] would.
On top of that, they said, they will ,,, again in 2020.
I bet if Cory Booker saw this segment he probably shed some more tears of rage. We’re almost certain the staff at CNN did.
