Roland Martin was on point on This Week where he asked Trump supporters a critical question. When will you wake up and realize you're getting screwed by Trump? But he goes much more in-depth with some data they may not have noticed.
Some Trump voters may never ask themselves the question but enough will when the fog is lifted. Help burn off the mist in their world where fake news reign.

"George, what they have to accept is that they had this alliance," Roland Martin said. "It's an alliance of white Conservative Evangelicals aligning with white nationalists, white supremacists like Gorka and like Bannon. What's interesting to me is, I am looking at all these Trump voters. And I am going, at what point will you wake up and realize you're getting screwed. They are getting screwed when you look at the affordable care act because they are benefiting from it. They are getting screwed when this man [Trump] stood up and talked about the opioid crisis and the most he did this week was to hold a news conference and said we are going to have a few more ads. They are going to get screwed on the tax deal as well. Look, broke is broke. And some of the 'brokest,' poorest counties in America, two-thirds of them, are in Republican districts. They are going to get screwed."
Martin brings a rawness to the conversation that these morning shows run from most of the times. Ironically, it is this type of narrative that will likely reach the Trump voter before the analytic and antiseptic prose that progressive pundits give on these programs.
I covered this very subject in a recent blog post titled "Trump’s policies screwing his own voters while helping more Clinton’s voters" that is worth a read as well.
