I feel that most people who are pro-Trump are very anti-immigration, and they hold that above being pro-privacy at this time.

I think the real answer is that voat is devided into two types of people. Most of the Trump supporters are authoritarian at heart if you have any conversations with them. The problem is they know not to attack privacy on an internet forum.

So I think you have a group that is pro-Trump and dislikes privacy only a little except when it's their own privacy. Then you have people who are pro-privacy but know they aren't going to get anywhere discussing Trump on this site. Then you have people who don't mind a few downvotes and properly rail against him and the fact that he's a bad candidate on most issues.

The pro-trump people are single issue voters, race, that just need a place to have a circle jerk that they can't have on reddit. They don't really care about the other aspects of the site or other issues that voaters care about. But that is a consequence of having proper free speech on a site inside of an internet that doesn't support that concept.

Yep. I'm ok with a little jackbootism if immigration gets dealt with.

This is the main reason. If we don't deal with immigration the Democrats will win every single election from here on out and America will be a third world shit hole just like every other nation in the Americas aside from Canada. No other candidate is willing to deal with immigration the way it needs to. Donald Trump doesn't need congress to enforce immigration laws. He can simply start enforcing the laws already on the books with resources already available.
