Why Donald Trump Won and the 3 Top Things He Must Do
Hindsight is a wonderful thing – and by the time you read this many experts, journalists and politicians will have written long explanations on the greatest surprise in American Presidential history.
And yes, I am joining them!
Why he Won
In 2 words – Western Spring – like the Arab Spring, by ballot box.
Both Brexit and Trump reflect on a growing dissatisfaction with traditional politics and Washington (Westminster) Politicians.
Too many people in too many countries feel too much ignored, and forgotten.
Hillary Clinton represented the establishment, Trump very cleverly positioned himself as the polar opposite – full credit to Kellyanne Conway, his Campaign Manager – for every force there is an equal and opposite force and he did this brilliantly. As Claire Kidd of Naked Leader put it – “an establishment bloody nose”.
One other thing – Trump had clear, specific, understandable outcomes – A wall with Mexico; A massive tax cut; Illegal immigrants deported. We may not have agreed with them, however to be honest I struggle to think of one specific outcome Clinton actually had. The brain adores simple outcomes.
He’s a TV celebrity and taken to social media – that’s where a large majority of people are communicating these days, and he’s been part of their world.
The 3 Things He Must Do
- Be more Presidential without becoming part of the Washington eliteI thought his acceptance speech reflected this – in fact, I thought it was the best speech he has made. People have asked the question ‘Why didn’t he say that during campaigning’? Because otherwise he wouldn’t have ignited all those people to vote for him, that’s why.
- Deliver on his 100 day planIn Naked Leader we love 100 day plans, and the only time I thought Trump had a chance, and the real reason he moved closer in the polls was when he announced this.
- Become the ‘Best President’ that the USA has ever hadI mean that – and he has the best possible start, half the country are protesting against him and expectations are more emotional than logical from those who voted for him.
This is a perfect storm – extreme views and low expectations. With seemingly no-one sitting on the fence about him, passion and emotion, positive and negative, give President Elect Trump the chance – the choice indeed, to be an amazing leader.
With my love and best wishes
