Whether you love him, hate him, or tolerate hate, one thing is for certain Donald Trump knows how to grab headlines like no other presidential candidate. Donald Trump has to believe in the old Public Relations adage that “all publicity is good publicity,” even if the facts don’t necessarily support all of his claims or you don’t like what he has to say.
Looking at Twitter this morning, Tweets regarding Trump are well over 1 million over the last several days. Even with the media going crazy over his Muslim comments and views, he knows how to harness media attention and stay in the headlines leaving all other candidates in the dust. Both the media and the public are going haywire over his comments, not only this week, but also regarding immigrants from Mexico, Megyn Kelly, and the list goes on and on since he announced he was running for President.
It may seem crazy, but it sure seems like Donald Trump is playing the media and using them to promote his run for President of The United States. I think he strategically says controversial things knowing it’s going to grab headlines and keep him in the headlines. When things slow down or there is a big media event he jumps into the fray, says something, and knows all too well he is going to get headlines and stay front and center in the news.
Can’t stand the guy or love him, Donald Trump is a Media Champion, like the kind we have never seen. As long as he stays in the Presidential race, we can continue to expect him to keep grabbing headlines and playing the media like fiddles in orchestras for media headlines and to become the next President of these United States.
