However, Trump in himself expresses a sector of the bourgeoisie that supports his government. In the first place, the oil sector. His Secretary of State is Rex Tillerson, former president of the main oil company in the country, Exxon. Possibly, Trump also has the support of important construction sectors (the main branch of his companies), of agrarian production and of a middle industrial bourgeoisie, harmed with the relocation of industries to China and other countries.

After the Inauguration Protests and Women’s March, Let’s Build An Independent Working Class Movement!
“One of the majors contradictions of the women’s march was that between its pro-liberal leadership and the confusion and diversity of political views expressed in the crowd. Even though many of the speakers in Washington, like Michael Moore, proposed to “take over” or “renew” the Democratic Party, not all participants were there just to demand a return the Democratic Party. This is why it is very important for us in the Left who believe in independent politics, who want to build a third party for working people, immigrant families and all the oppressed communities in the U.S. to organize separate contingents in the future mass demonstrations. We want to join in action against the Trump administration with everybody, liberals, abstentionism, undocumented who did not vote, even with those who voted for Trump and are now shocked that he is attacking their very rights, but we want to join in action to build a political alternative of our own, that is not a return to the corrupt establishment of the 1%, that will not be easily co-opted and that is based on mass action and mobilization of working class folks.”
