Trump's working class comes right out of the long-standing ideology of the deserving poor, framed in this election as the white industrial worker disenfranchised by NAFTA. The corresponding undeserving poor are the immigrants and people of colour who are stealing jobs and opportunity from him. White people view themselves as the deserving. People of colour, on the other hand, are viewed as pathologically criminal: border jumpers, thugs, or terrorists.
This is not to say white poverty is a myth or that trade policies in this country haven't gutted industrial and agricultural communities; it is real and there is no question that they have. Much of post-industrial America lacks basic infrastructure and badly needs resources such as access to healthcare and sustainable jobs.
