Trump says this all the time, and I've heard this from other wealthy people too. Do wealthy people feel that their personal encounters are a representative sample of the entire country, or do they say things like this to demonstrate somehow being in touch?

I imagine he uses it because it's an effective deflection.

He must have said this 20934809234809 times so far. It kind of sounds like "but I have a black friend".

How many good friends do you guys have? While I know quite a few people and have >5k people in my contacts list (probably 2500 in the automotive industry), comparatively I don't have many "friends", something like 25-30 (w/ 15 or so whom I'd say are close friends).
