We asked a cult deprogramming expert how to talk your friends out of voting for Donald Trump - 2016-06-07
It's no secret that Donald Trump has been using powerful tools of persuasion to swing voters to his side. It's also no secret that the Trump campaign has amassed a zealous group of supporters, many of whom have sworn their allegiance to him despite a string of embarrassing revelations, racist gaffes, and violent incidents.
If you're like most Americans, you probably have friends or family members who support Trump, and plan to vote for him in November. And if you've tried to convince these people to change their allegiance, you know that it's not easy. Arguing with Trump supporters generally doesn't help. Neither does shaming or insulting them.
Convincing a Trump supporter to back down from their views requires a tactical, professional approach. So I called a cult deprogramming expert, and asked him how to convince Trump supporters to change their minds.
