Donald Trump did not have a goal to become a president, when he took part in the political rally. At least this information appeared in the video that was recently published by The Guardian.
According to Mark Singer from the New Yorker, Trump’s participation in the presidential election was a sort of the protest action. It should raise an issue how someone so impulsive and eccentric can really believe he belongs in the White House. Both the businessman and his team didn’t have a goal to win – they would be satisfied with 12% votes from Republicans. This amount would put Trump on the second place.
This information was received from Stephanie Cegielski, a former communication director of the pro-Trump fundraising group. Last year she heard that the victory wasn’t a goal – the team just needs to get two-digit number of votes.
Results of this protest action were really surprising for all participants, including Trump. Singer mentioned that the Republican nominee does not believe he is capable to rule the country. The chairman of the Trump’s campaign Paul Manafort said the businessman will need “an experienced person to do part of the job he doesn’t want to do” as a president. Trump sees himself more like a chairman or a CEO.
Donald Trump changes strategy
Unexpected results could be a reason why Trump slightly improved his behavioral pattern. The recent speech was his most professional political address since he became the presumptive nominee in early May. It seemed to fuse his volatile, off-the-cuff political style with a more traditional brand of political discourse that puts reasoned arguments before voters as they make their choice for President.
Speaking from a teleprompter, with occasional asides, Trump appeared to be road testing a more scripted, subdued style ahead of next month’s Republican National Convention — even as he was unsparing in his rebuke of Clinton.
The presumptive Democratic nominee is “a world-class liar,” Trump said during a 40 minute speech in New York in which he slammed Clinton for everything from using a private email server to backing free trade.
“Just look at her pathetic email and server statements … or her phony landing in Bosnia, where she said she was under attack but the attack turned out to be young girls handing her flowers.”
Painting Clinton as the candidate of inertia and the unsatisfactory status quo, he called her message “old and tired.”
“Hillary Clinton wants to be President,” he said. “But she doesn’t have the temperament, or, as Bernie Sanders’ said, the judgment, to be president. She believes she is entitled to the office.”
