It's funny that people don't see how much being a salesman is like being a politician. But remember, for Trump, and for being a salesman, it's about selling, not actually about the product. That should give anyone pause when listening to Trump.
You don't have to be well-educated to see through this. You do have to put your knee-jerk emotions aside though, because they only give short-run results.
I have a Masters Degree, yet I support Trump. It's simple. I've read his plans, and they are pretty sensible. How many other candidates have a book showing just what is needed to turn things around?
Asked by Megyn Kelly what his favorite book is besides The Art of the Deal, Trump chose All Quiet on the Western Front. (Not sure what happened to the Bible!) Kelly, perhaps sensing that Trump may not have read a book since sixth grade, asked him to name the last book he read. “I read passages, I read areas, chapters, I don’t have the time,” Trump said. “When was the last time I watched a baseball game? I’m watching you all the time.”
If anything, his speeches turn me off, but knowing the substance behind his ideas, I can overlook the fact that he's not exactly politically correct. To be honest, it's a bit refreshing.
