Hes pandering to the fearful, the bigoted, the easily persuaded. And that is a gigantic portion of america. Everybody isn't mentally strong enough to see through his antics. And thats how hes getting away with it.
I liken it to the video from 2 weeks ago where a muslim was talking about building a mosque at a town hall meeting, then some good ol boy stood up and said "i dont care what u say, you're ALL terrorists! ALL of you muslims are terrorists." and 90% of the room broke out into applause. racial tension has been on the rise at an alarming rate, and itll come to a head soon enough. and trump wisely figured he could play those idiots into following him.
