Donald Trump and Millennials: Why the presidential candidate appeals to young people

For many young Donald Trump supporters, his willingness to speak his mind is a sign of good leadership.

From immigration reform to making better trade deals, Trump has voiced his opinion on many American policies in what often seems like reactionary commentary.

“He’s saying what’s on his mind, he’s not afraid to not be [politically correct], and that’s a quality of a strong leader,” said Avrahom Rosenberg a 25-year-old social worker from Midwood who plans to vote for Trump.

And Trump has been this way since before many of his younger supporters were born.

In his book, “The Art of the Deal,” published in 1987, Trump attributed some of his success to playing it loose and relying on his own instincts when making tough decisions.

With New York’s primary just a few weeks away, amNewYork interviewed several young Trump supporters to hear why they stand behind him — and what they think of another millennial favorite, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders.
