Beck Says 'We Will Destroy Ourselves' if We Don't Realize This About Donald Trump's Popularity

Glenn Beck on Wednesday said he believes he knows why so many people are rallying around Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, even though Trump may not have the same values as many of his apparent supporters.

"Here's what's happened to us: we're splitting off into our own little groups of what our priorities are," Beck said on his radio program. "That doesn't make any of us wrong. But people will listen to me and ... say, 'I'm done with the God stuff.' OK, I understand. But that's what I believe the answer is. I believe that's the root of all of our problems."

While Beck sees faith as one of the paramount issues of the day, he believes many Trump supporters see illegal immigration or political correctness as the root of America's current problems.

"The key to understanding this is Ann Coulter," Beck continued. "I've seen some of her statements and I'm like, 'What the hell -- Ann, what are you talking about?'"

Beck specifically referenced Coulter's tweet saying Trump's immigration policy is so good, she doesn't care if he "wants to perform abortions in White House."

Beck said Coulter was obviously joking to some extent, but "there's truth to that statement," and it helps clarify some of Trump's support.

"We're tearing apart each other because our priorities are different," Beck said. "We're all saying the same thing, but our priorities are different."

Beck said there is "rot" everywhere -- from our banking system to the IRS to the NSA -- and people's various concerns are completely justified. And when he says he disagrees with Donald Trump, he's not saying he hates the man -- he just believes he's "the wrong guy" because Trump's priorities don't align with his.

"There are millions of Americans who have a different lens, who believe the country is in as much trouble as I do," Beck added. "We probably stood shoulder to shoulder at a Tea Party rally, but this is where we separate the men from the boys. This is where we start separating people. Without any judgment, we start separating people and saying, 'OK, so what is your solution?'"

But Beck said that by viciously attacking each other during the primary process, "we will be our own worst enemy" and "we will destroy ourselves."

"It is easy to diagnose the problems. It is harder to prioritize the solutions," Beck concluded. "[I believe] you can't fix immigration until you fix corruption. You can't fix corruption until you fix the Constitution. You can't fix the Constitution until you fixed it right with God and you know where those constitutional principles come from."
