Trump’s Racist Appeal To The Suburbs Is Backfiring

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  President Donald Trump has failed to build a physical wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but now he wants to build another wall — between America’s cities and their suburbs.
