Trump is a master of the sale. His book ‘The art of the deal’ is testament to this.The US presidency is the deal of a lifetime, thought Trump hardly needs the money having earned 700 million dollars last year. Trump uses the same tricks all politicians use to win votes, its just that trump is better at it.
So using logical fallacies to win over peoples unconscious decision making is clever, but is it honest? I can hear people calling out ‘Socratic dialogues’ right now.
Some will point out trumps apparent privilege. Sure a person being given a million as a 20 something is going to have an easier run, but he did increase the value of that by 1000 times, that’s not pure luck alone. To those who dwell on 4 of the business ventures he was involved in failing, its worth pointing out there were a hundred more that succeeded, and typically 90% of business deal fail, so a 4 % failure rate is extremely good by comparison.
Make America Great Again? We’ll see I guess.
