With a reputation of insults and a bombastic nature, Donald Trump’s arrival on the political scene has disrupted the political scale and has managed to confuse many. As Americans seem to vote in his favor, one must wonder why with his recent scandals and his constant insults.
Trump’s reputation as a business person was always a shady one, but there was no denying his sense of marketing and promotion. That is what has gotten him this far. Self-promotion has been his best friend and in doing so, he has garnered a group of followers but also a group of protestors.
Insults, half-truths, and lies are what Trump is known for and has been for years. He has yet to lay out actual plans of action. He would rather mention the topic without giving his audience the information. But in some circles, that seems enough to keep his numbers high and attendance to his speeches full.
The media jumps on the wagon every day. When Trump speaks, the news cycle repeats his words until they each is ingrained into the memories of Americans. Whether bullying Hilliary Clinton or making wild claims of deportation of Muslims, the media is right there to report it repeatedly. Not even an expert online reputation company can compete with that nonsense.
As Trump’s insults go beyond the borders of America, his reputation has suffered in other countries as well. From the Mexican President to Chinese leaders of commerce, the reputation of Trump is not kept within the borders of the United States. But the mixture of reviews keeps everyone at the edge of their seat to catch what he says next.
