Answers:
1. According to the first boy, what are Trump’s (three) good points?
“He’s clearly a good businessman, because he’s filthy, stinkin’ rich.” (In the US, this term is not negative, as it sounds. It simply means richer than I can possibly imagine.) His policy on how immigration is affecting our country, or how to deal with terror groups like ISIS just seems ideal.”
2. According to the same boy, what are Trump’s bad points, and why are these justified to him?
He said that trump was sometimes dishonest and not a very nice man, but he also said that no-one was.
3. The older brother disagrees. What does he think of Trump?
He said, “He kind of panders to his audience, I would say. He just says things that his audience would like to hear. He doesn’t feel sincere, what he says.
4. According to the boy and his father, what do other people think of trump supporters?
They said that people label them as racist, bigoted and deplorable, but that they are not.
