LETTER: Trump fuelled politics of resentment

THE "politics of resentment” is the prevailing theme as most try to come to terms with the victory of Donald Trump.

People were angry with the elites, the city dwellers and the establishment.

They experienced growing inequality and were finding it harder to make ends meet.

They believed that Trump would provide a brave new world simply because he said he would.

But truth has so far not been his strong suit.

The theory that tax cuts for the wealthiest will trickle down to benefit the working poor has already been substantially discredited.

Abraham Lincoln said "you cannot fool all the people all the time”, but president-elect Trump has managed to fool enough of the people, enough of the time.
