The 2016 presidential election is ripe for the emergence of a game-changing political leader who either dramatically reforms one of the existing parties or mounts an independent bid.
– Ron Fournier, an American National Political Journalist
The much noted and harsh-about topic in the current society, ‘Donald Trump’s election campaign’ is an evaluative event. Taken under limelight, the whole strategy is both apprized, and picked apart by the citizenry. Playing is cards right, Trump has so far sustained and intelligently dealt with detest and appreciation. Attracting scorn gained him much needed consensus from voters and maintained his name popping over the tidings, seems like hatred turned profitable to someone.
‘Make America great again’-tagline of Donald Trump’s official campaign site. Delegate results, presidential primary states for the month of June that Donald Trump secured himself a clear victory in California (172 delegates), Montana (27 delegates), New Jersey (51 delegates), New Mexico (24 delegates), and South Dakota (29 delegates). Accounted for 10 of 15 victories by now, his success is unperturbed by accusation of being labeled as a racist and sexiest by the Anti-Trump campaigners.
Taking instances from his campaign so far, here Business Alligators present its readers a complete explanation to election strategy of the American presidential election bidder, Donald Trump:
1. Maintaining focus on Tariffs and Strengthening the Economy
Been untouched since generations, the tycoon has been critically looking into the lopsided distribution of western economy connected to that of America. Being the most prominent nation, particularly magnetizing labor from all across the globe, with which everyone is stricken upon, however, never being able to get a clear picture of it. Belonging from the donor class, the man has utilized his pedagogy in coming up as a society-modifier for both the ends. Moreover, his take on the Mexico migrants, immigration, military interventionism, tariffs, and fair trade brought him huge attention.
In his 50 minute speech Trump presented his thoughts over foreign policies, immigration, education, social security, and so on. His most disputed statement about the migrants from Mexico taking home in America said, “I will build a great, great wall on your southern border and will make Mexico pay for that wall.”
Touting his own success as a real estate person, Trump spoke of rebuilding the aging infrastructure of the country and said, “Rebuild the country’s infrastructure; nobody can do it like me, believe me. It will be done on time, what anyone ever thought. I look at these roads being build all over the country and I say, ’I could build these things for one third.’ We have to rebuild our infrastructure: our bridges, our roadways, our airports. You come into LaGuardia Airport, it’s like we are in the third-world country.”
While speaking of the negotiations going on betwixt US and other Pacific Ocean countries, the Trans-Pacific partnership, he didn’t fail to garner newsworthiness saying, “Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say China, in a trade deal? I beat China all the time. All the time! When did we beat Japan at anything? They send their cars over by the millions. And what do we do? When was the last time you saw a Chevrolet in Tokyo? It doesn’t exist folks; they beat us all the time.”
2. Following the Policy of Persuasion
Agree or not, a persuasive spokesperson rules the economy. Words can be anything that its wielder wants them to be, Trump’s abstinence over what he finds politically, and socially wrong brought him huge support. If his bid in American presidential election succeeds, his prodigious ability of persuasion is an asset to be credited. His masters in persuasive tactics helped him greatly since he announced his vie, and even were well exhibited when his novels turned the best seller.
Trump unquestionably comprehended the theory of human brain impressively well. He is well aware of psychology, hence, is his appeal to the voters. There’s a whole sequence to this, a brief description would be, and he knows human brain is irrational which directly relates his being able to converse with their emotions, and when it’s about emotions facts aren’t considered. His statements mostly are about things that have harmed people, but have prevailed for longer than they are aware of. A president, needs to keep many people happy, someone’s felicity can be pain to others and vice versa. But, such aspects can never be precisely evaluated by the voters. Wrapping reality in words is easier than a layman can think; it is basically artillery of all politicians, the difference enters with the question- ‘who makes use of it in the best way?’
3. Employing Significance Prior Influence
The big apple celeb, Donald Trump even before enrolling his name into active politics, was a popular name in America. His skirmishes, business fails, and words never went unnoticed, neither by people nor by the media. His media dealings are appreciable. Being one of the biggest real estate moguls of America, a far-famed novelist, and a renowned anchor he already had made an influence on people. Cultivating support from all classes of American society and people, when he already had established associations in the authoritarian class, proved a profiting move for him. Jeb Bush’s visible cocoon in Trump’s presidential competence has also been a boon.
The man is well cognizant of how to make best use of his name! His sole aim is definitely not ‘money’, but fame, this fact is even admitted by his associates.
Well, Sir speaking of money, you have $3 billion of it already!!!
4. Controversial Statements during Campaign
Huge flak for the controversial statements Trump has been giving hike to the media TRPs so far. Call them bizarre or ridiculous, they endowed him triumphs to celebrate. When the tragedy of Orlando got revealed, tweets flashed on the screens of Donald Trump’s followers with him saying- Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!” This was followed by his statement in CBS, where he clearly told that the tragedy which left at least 50 people dead, could be repeated if president Obama doesn’t refer to it as ‘Radical Islamic terrorism’.
Adding to this he said, “Believe me, all I want is safety, I want safety for this country. What happened yesterday will happen many times over with a president like Obama that doesn’t even want to use the term ‘radical Islamic terrorism’.”
Coming up with another one from the Trump’s closet of controversial statements; who can forget the phase when he called women’s pregnancy an inconvenience to business.
The stories are unending, so, concluding the point here; these controversies play a pivotal role in bringing Trump’s triumph in American politics.
5. Using the Frustration of Voters in his Favor
Like any other politician, to get seat in the Oval office Trump benefited himself from the multi-candidate run. Explicating this, it’s like in a war where many parties fight over power, one kills the other which somehow even injures the killer, and this is a huge success for a third party. Safe and sound, yet, succeeded. Obama’s unfulfilled promises were a frustration to the voters, poisoning his image as United States’ president. Trump, just utilized the astute business mind of his and simply stroke the right place.
