‘Trump’s success from being a good bad guy’

Love him or hate him, but it’s impossible to ignore him as he is the president of the United States of America. Despite all the controversy surrounding his presidency so far, experts believe that if he were to contest elections again, he may well return to power. Journalist Matt Frei, who interviewed Trump as early as 2013 and has since then keenly followed his rise to power, says that Trump’s success has come from being a “good bad guy”.
“I was attending a Trump rally in North Carolina before the elections and I asked people what they found common with a billionaire from the Upper East Side. One section said that he was rich and a winner and they all want to be winners. While statistics prove that the American dream is dead, lots of people think they could be Donald Trump one day. Another section said that while they don’t think they can ever be Donald Trump, he was a bully on their side. They were sick and tired of dynastic politics,” he said. Frei said that Trump’s success had a lot to do with his position as the “outsider” in the Washington political landscape. Obama was an insurgent candidate, he said, and so was Trump. “Hillary Clinton, because of her name, was not an insurgent candidate. Her very experience as secretary of state, first lady, senator of New York lent her an aura of entitlement,” Frei explained.
He added that the recent tax cuts would be fundamentally important to understanding why Trump would be a success. “These tax cuts will help people who earn more than US$ 2 million, more than they help those who earn US$ 75,000 a year. In America, the American dream is an incredibly potent poison. The billions of dollars that will be saved by corporations in these tax cuts can be fuelled back into the economy to actually create jobs. But if it is invested elsewhere, it will divide the country even more and we will end up with a situation that got Trump elected in the first place,” he said.
