Besides the cultural aspect, Trump’s economic policies aim to benefit the whole country and millennials specifically. In fact, some have stated that Trump’s proposed economic policies, combined with the sentiment among the American people to bring jobs back and keep them here, is already adding jobs back to the economy. For example, Ford has canceled their planned factory in Mexico and moved it back to Ohio, partially because the move would be too expensive, but definitely because Trump’s rhetoric is very popular and they were already receiving back PR from their decision beforehand. This phenomenon was actually over thought by most everyone, that the economy can be affected so greatly not from purely policy, but just popular thought. The American people have been tired of the jobs that made the country and its citizens flourish for so long being taken away from the country, and moving to places like China and Mexico. The jobs and companies that used to be a central part of the American culture have left for countries based off of simply economic gains. It seems apparently that the majority of Americans, including Trump, are more than fine taking a hit to their economy to spite companies that do this. While Trump’s protectionist policies alone are estimated by economists to be bad for the economy in the long run, his rhetoric might be a more powerful tool. The problem as of right now is not that there aren’t enough jobs for millennials, it’s that they go to college for years and spend tens of thousands of dollars, but then the only jobs available are cruddy low-paying service jobs, instead of real paying jobs. If millennials have the opportunity for high paying jobs out of college, there will be an enduring change in the culture of the youth. Right now, there is so much fear for the future held by youth, as well as distrust in the government, corporations, and the American faith system as a whole. This is why they seem so misguided, even though they have no trust in the systems around them which have not offered them the same luxuries as their parents, they still look to the government for answers to their problems out of desperation. If good paying job are brought back and they stay, the misguided feelings held for Trump by millennials will soon fade.

The lack of trust for the systems around them held my most millennials, meaning the systems of government, education, and corporations around them, is not a misguided one. For so many years, it has become more apparent to this generation which has more access to information than any generation before, that the systems that make up our country and even our world are often led by questionable people, and have ill intentions. The government has gotten away with more than it ever should have, enough to make the founding fathers roll over in their graves, because the same people in government and industry have held so much power for so long without challenge. Businesses are practicing methods which used to be illegal, and cheating the American people out of jobs that they used to adore and appreciate in their culture, to make poor children in developing countries do it. Even religion is coming to blows with modernism in most ways, still denying scientific fact and trying to control people for actions that go on between them and other consensual adults, without harming a single other person. Millennials have grown up a much more libertarian generation, wanting to make a life for themselves based off of their own merit, realizing their own successes, and hating when others in part of the system hold them back from achieving their dreams. Trump embodies this movement, as head of the alt-right movement, which is an extremely libertarian biased philosophy, he believes in the values of self-preservation and reward through hard work. These ideas that many millennials and Trump hold are exactly what made America such an amazing country to begin with. There is not a more satisfying feeling in the world than being rewarded for hard work. However, it is not always possible for this dream to be realized, as it often isn’t anymore, when the system in which people are born into is so corrupt, old, and inefficient. Donald Trump is the person who was chosen by the American people to shake up this system, challenge those in power, and return the country to the state in which is should be run. The man is not the most articulate, and can not help and save everyone by himself, which is exactly why so many believe he is going to be a great president. By taking down those in power who have enslaved the people of this country, it will be run by the people and the destiny of this country will be decided by two much people are willing to fight for it. It is the natural cycle of humanity, destruction, reconstruction, flourishing, degradation, repeat.
