President Donald Trump’s “mental stability” and suggests his supporters are fearful of ethnic diversity.

Alex On-Air, a talk show host on WNOW-FM in Indianapolis, first shared images of the Pearson book’s questionable lessons last week:

The photos, the radio host noted, are from Minnesota.

What does the textbook say?

The 2019 textbook, “By the People” written by James W. Fraser, is for advanced-placement students in grades nine through 12, according to the publisher.

Fraser described Trump’s 2016 presidential success as “a victory for the people who, like themselves, had been forgotten in a fast-changing America — a mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white group.”

The text continued:

Clinton’s supporters feared that the election had been determined by people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history.

The author also made a special note about the president’s mental fitness: “[Clinton supporters] also worried about the mental instability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.”

Fraser also hypothesized former President Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House were “difficult” for American voters who “had long thought of the nation as a white and Christian country.”

As for Clinton, a student told Alex On-Air the textbook “never mentions” the fact that the former secretary of state deleted many of the documents associated with her use of a private email server.
