Why Many Americans Trust Donald Trump More Than the CIA
I asked my Twitter followers, “When it comes to alleged Russian influence on the elections, do you believe the CIA or Trump?”
Remarkably, only 18 percent said they trusted the CIA while 44 percent said they trusted Trump and 38 percent said they were unsure – and it should be noted that while the vast majority of my Twitter followers are, to my knowledge, Christian conservatives, a good number of them did not support Trump. Why, then, are they so distrusting of the CIA?
To answer that question, we can ask this: “Do you personally trust the federal government?”
