He is a Filipino-American living in Birmingham who works as a nurse. Wife and 2 kids.
The talk turned to politics and I asked him if he was comfortable sharing for whom he voted.
"Yes, sure. Trump," he answered.
He has been in the country for 11 years and a citizen for 7 of them.
Why did he vote for Trump?
- He felt like Obama's economic policies hurt working class Americans in favor of people who get government handouts.
- He didn't trust Hillary.
- He believes that a big change is needed in the way that government works.
His sister also voted for Trump.
I asked if, as an immigrant, he had any qualms about voting for Trump.
"No. I'm an American. I work and pay my taxes and Trump speaks to real Americans."
