It is more a reaction to the social justice warriors attacking people over casual comments and word choice, name calling at best, destroying property and threatening lives at worse.

No one likes a bully. No one likes the perpetual cry baby. And Trump is popular because he stands up to the passive aggressive cry-bullies who scream that you have to ban speech they don't like as hate speech, interrupt events, threaten to kill people who don't shut up when they disrupt, try to get people fired for bad jokes (Christine Socorro, guy who wore scifi shirt while talking about comet landing), and if you challenge them, they whine that THEY are the victims because your speech and beliefs somehow oppress them.
