Donald Trump has become a household name in the United States.He is a shrewd businessman with an empire ranging from the real estate business to the entertainment industry. He admits that over the years,he has made mistakes in his endevours.One important thing is that he took notes along the way. It is the wisdom gained that he hopes could be put to better use as the next US president.
How has Donald Trump conducted his campaign so far?
During the initial stages of the campaign,almost everyone was skeptical. The media did not even fully cover his speaking events. Over time,ratings started to indicate that what people wanted to watch was Mr Trump and his campaign. Currently,the media covers his press conferences live.
One thing that is very clear is that Mr Trump is moving the crowd to an extent. During a debate hosted by Fox news,over 24 million people watched it! This shows that gradually he is gaining influence over his crowd and attracting even more people.
Some experts are of the opinion that Donald Trump should keep his day job and let politics and governance be handled by politicians. When his character and personality are put to question,he has a large ego. While this might be a good trait when handling his businesses;after all he is the boss,it is different with running a government. The skill of attentively listening to make proper decisions is fundamental in the smooth running of all activities of a government.
According to them, Donald Trump does not stand a chance of being the next American president. During this time,he is allowed to be a clown and use his money during US presidential campaigns but he will only be a president in his own company.
The current US President holds similar sentiments and does not see Mr Trump as his successor. According to him,Trump is not fit for the job. Running a business and running a government is different in many ways.
The interesting thing is that Trump has a dream,and if Barrack Obama’s slogan is anything to go by,then yes we can. If he will get the nomination papers from the Republican party,that will be a great step towards his dream.
He has probably achieved whatever he may have wanted to achieve during his life time. If American presidency is the final dream,then so be it.
