I've been reading a lot of the posts prior to the election about the seemingly overwhelming support for Donald Trump among the people posting on the forum and have to admit I was pretty saddened by it. I will preface this all by saying I am not Indian and wasn't raised Hindu. I was born in Florida and grew up in a Christian family, but over close to 2 decades have found deep meaning in Indian religion/philosophy. So, maybe I don't fully understand some of the policy decisions that are affecting the backing of Donald Trump. However, what I don't get is how any spiritual, or religious person could back Donald Trump. I don't understand how the Christian community does it and I even more so don't understand how the Hindu community does. He is a completely egocentric person who only cares about himself and will say and do anything for attention and power. Just look at how he is handling losing, by trying to throw the very essence of democracy out the window. I don't mean to come off rude, but I truly would like to see how decent people with ethics support a man like Trump.
