Trump's America: Northampton County, Pennsylvania

Hey, let's hear another round of 'lock her up'.  Six months after Trump’s inauguration, with a daily war raging over the president’s own alleged deceptions and major campaign promises going unfulfilled, a perceptible shift in mood has set in among Trump voters interviewed for an ongoing Guardian series in Northampton County, Pennsylvania. 
The thrill of victory, for many Trump backers, has been replaced by something closer to disgust – the kind of disgust that makes people turn off the news. 
They still back the president. But they express sharp resentment of the president’s perceived enemies in the media and official Washington, and describe fatigue from defending a political figure who does not always make it easy. In a striking number of interviews, the conversation eventually turns to the candidate Trump beat eight months ago – Clinton – whose alleged trespasses are brandished to answer questions about Trump’s alleged trespasses.
