Donald Trump is one of the most divisive figures in American politics today. Despite the boycotts, threats and insults, he's still in the presidential race, and leading in many polls. Why?
The Donald has been famous for decades extending his business and real estate success to television and film. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work on The Apprentice. He’s paid a reported $3 million per episode making him one of the highest paid TV personalities.
ONLY TRUMP HAS THE COJONES TO TELL THE TRUTH
Critics have lambasted him; companies and organizations have distanced themselves from him or outright dropped him. Why? Because he has said the truth and the left doesn’t like hearing the truth. Trump has said illegal Mexican immigrants are bringing lots of problems to the U.S. like "drugs", "crime", "rapists" and some he assumes "are good people". Is that really all that controversial?
TRUMP IS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN
Donald Trump is a “very rich” man. His campaign has released that the Republican presidential candidate has a net worth “in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS” and his income in 2014 was $362 million. His empire has employed tens of thousands of people over the years and backers believe his business know-how will translate well to handling America’s economy.
TRUMP KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING
Sure, the bombastic businessman goes off script from time to time, but Trump knows that his personality resonates with voters. He knows that being himself and speaking his mind will get attention and that attention could awake a large contingent of Americans who don’t usually go out to vote.
TRUMP WON’T BACK DOWN BECAUSE OF “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”
Hence all the backlash from the left. Trump’s opposition to the White House will grow, but that doesn’t mean he’ll change his ways to appease the politically correct. He’ll stand his ground on issues like immigration and demonstrate why he’s right. Examples like Kate Steinle being murdered by a 5-time deported illegal immigrant, and having his life threatened by the Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman who’s interests would be undermined if Trump were President.
TRUMP UNDERSTANDS BRANDING
In his campaign kick-off speech Trump said, “We need somebody who can take the brand of the United States and make it great again.” Donald Trump knows branding, from hotels to golf courses, mattresses to casinos the Trump name reigns as a mark of quality and luxury. America is in desperate need of a leader who can improve its branding.
TRUMP IS NOT A POLITICIAN
Maybe his greatest attribute is that Donald Trump is the furthest thing from a politician. Lobbyists, donors nor special interests control him, he is able to think freely and get behind ideas that will improve the country. Trump’s popularity is soaring because of many reasons and it’s no wonder why poll after poll show the real estate mogul’s favourability rating climbing.
It’s impossible to predict how this race will play out, but one thing is for sure – the first Republican debate on August 6th is sure going to be fun to watch.
