“I discovered, for the first time but not the last, that politicians don’t care too much what things cost. It’s not their money.” — Donald J. Trump: The Art of the Deal
Donald Trump has mastered running a successful business. The best-selling author has penned several books illustrating his business savvy. Now, he is preparing to become America’s 45th President, and he is bringing his “Art of the Deal” to the White House.
A Glimpse Into His Presidential Style
- Trump: The Art of the Deal
- Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life
- Great Again: How to Fix Our Crippled America
- Trump Never Give Up: How I Turned My Biggest Challenges Into Success
These are just a few of the titles credited to the President-elect. All of them offer examples of the power of determination. The will to succeed. They also offer a sneak-peek into the type of President he will be.
His first book, The Art of the Deal. was published in 1987 and made Trump a household name. It highlights the 11-steps necessary for successful business. We are already seeing some of these steps in action. Steps like: “Think big”, “Know your market”, “Fight back”, and “Have fun”.
- Trump understands how deals are made.
- He is a fierce opponent in business and life.
- He certainly knows America and has great ideas for her.
- Trump’s tenacity is the stuff of legends.
And boy does he know how to have fun.
Life Imitates Art
In his first book he says, “My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I’m after. Sometimes I settle for less than I sought, but in most cases I still end up with what I want.”
So far, Trump’s administration is looking like another best-selling story. From bringing businesses and jobs back to the U.S., to negotiating fair and honest trade deals, Trump’s business style is paving the way for America to prosper.
His corporate panache is also inspiring others to believe and achieve.
Thinking Big and Making It Happen
It you want a glimpse into who Trump truly is, look no further than his 2008 book, Think Big. On page 29 he states “When someone crosses you, my advice is “Get even!” If you do not get even, you are just a schmuck!”
His choices for Attorney General and National Security Advisor clearly show Trump lives by these words. He has his liberal opponents and foreign adversaries cowering in fear, that he will do exactly what he penned.
President-elect Trump knows that intelligence and unflinching nerve are perfect weapons. He doesn’t need hand-to-hand combat skills. He simply out-thinks and out-maneuvers his opponents.
He keeps them on edge — they just never know what he will do next.
One thing is certain, President-elect Trump will do everything with style and class. We may not have seen him coming, but we are sure glad he is here. And we can’t wait for his next chapter to be written.
