Donald Trump considers himself a branding expert, and when you couple that with the fact that he’s a megalomaniac, it’s not surprising he put his name on most of his properties and products from water to vodka and a fake university to a fake charitable foundation.
Trump-branded properties and products actually had prestige before he ran for president and exposed himself as a racist buffoon who bankrupted several companies even though he inherited billions from his father.
Trump is an expert at branding his political opponents: Low energy Jeb Bush, Lyin’ Ted Cruz, Little Marco, Crooked Hillary, Sleepy Joe Biden, Crazy Bernie Sanders …
Throughout his career as a real estate magnate, and a Reality TV star, Trump’s words and actions have led people to wonder if he’s a racist.
But since the day he announced he was running for president and throughout his tenure his rhetoric and policies have exposed him as an unvarnished blatant dye-in-the-wool racist. No one has any doubts anymore, and everyone from pundits to politicians to regular folks are calling him a racist.
Following a month in which Trump used racist tropes to attack four congresswomen of color, and disparaged a majority-black Baltimore district as a “rat and rodent infested mess”, many people are now calling him a white supremacist and a white nationalist. Even some of the Democratic presidential hopefuls like Beto O-Rourke and Sen. Elizabeth Warren have called him a white supremacist.
Trump could be credibly branded as Lyin’ Trump, Idiot Trump or Alzheimer’s A-hole, but nothing fits quite like Racist Trump. Every stump speech by a Democrat running for president and every political commercial should include the phrase, racist Trump.
