Donald Trump has stoked the growing resentment of white people, and through his rhetoric over the course of his campaign, has emboldened whites to do the same, The New York Times reports.

In Trump, whites who resent now being the majority-minority in hundreds of cities and counties around the country finally see a resistance movement against open-ended immigration.

"I think what we really find troubling is the mainstreaming of these really offensive ideas," Jonathan Greenblatt, national director of the Anti-Defamation League told the Times. "It's allowed some of the worst ideas into the public conversation in ways we haven't seen anything like in recent memory."

Pat Buchanan, who warned against mass immigration during his Presidential campaigns in the 90s, isn't surprised. Buchanan was dismissed then because whites were in a place of dominance, the Times reported.

"It is the changes that are taking place that have created the national constituency for Donald Trump," Buchanan told the Times.

Since announcing his run for president, Trump has garnered the support of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other white nationalists, according to the Times:
  • Andrew Anglin of The Daily Stormer
  • Richard Spencer
  • Jared Taylor
  • David Duke
  • William Johnson
Trump has electrified those groups while having to "disavow" them several times when confronted by the media, largely because of statements like this:

"Trump is willing to say what most Americans think: It's time to deport these people," Anglin told the Times. "He is also willing to call them out as criminal rapists, murderers and drug dealers."

Even after being disavowed, white nationalists and groups remain emboldened and reassured by a tone they hear coming from Trump.

"He disavowed us," Johnson told the Times, "but he explained why there is so much anger in America that I couldn't have asked for a better approach from him."
