Doomsday Preppers of the Trump Presidency

“Prepping” is bigger than ever, but the lifestyle has changed a lot since the ‘90s.
  1. Some liberals feel now that Trump is president, they don’t trust the government.
  2. The prevalence of prepping in countries has a lot to do with how much people trust the government. Scandinavian countries trust the governments to take care of them, so there aren’t many preppers to be found in places like Finland and Norway.
  3. Liberals are buying guns more often than pre-2016.
  4. One of the primary reasons behind liberal prepping is often cited as fear of economic collapse.
