Why Donald Trump Remains In The Media
The world we live in is one that pays attention to the strangest things in media. A lot of attention is given to celebrities and this is taken away from some real issues going on out there. Lately, the media has been giving a lot of air-time to the infamous Donald Trump who is running for election in 2016. His words are blunt, very irrational, and downright ill-mannered. Trump furthers stereotypes and continuously has to recant statements due to his spew of words offending massive communities. Even though Trump manages to be uncivil on national television, he still is put on a platform to spread primitive reforms and here are the reasons why.
Trump's Net Worth
Some people believe that gravity makes the world go round' and others believe it's money. With money, you are able to make people do things and even make yourself important. Trump has a net worth of more than 4 billion U.S. dollars. When you do the math, that is a lot of money. He has enough money to funds his own campaign which is a large part of running for presidency. Usually, candidates look for bids that can get them the exposure needed to run for the seat in the White House. When you have the kind of money Trump has and know the people he knows, it is pretty easy to thrust yourself into society's microscope.
Being Politically Incorrect
Being politically correct in politics is one of the most important things. You have to know how to talk to a diverse audience correctly to maintain likeability. There is an invisible code of honor that politicians must follow or it will be difficult to work in the world that they do. Donald Trump follows his own code of honor. Some would think that this would be a strike against Donald Trump, but it actually propels him. Sometimes being politically correct can be considered deceptive because it becomes just a means of saying what the people want to hear. Although Trump says questionable things, he always says what he thinks which amplifies his genuine. He's not nice, but he is real.
He Means Business
Corporate America is rooting for Donald Trump. In the last few years, there has been a lot of banter about the one-percent, or the upper class in America, needing to be taxed higher because the wealth distribution is only getting worse as each year goes by. As a capitalist country, there is bound to be a separation between the wealth and poverty, but as a democratic-republic, the people have the ability to push for reform. The president has to make sure they address the nation on such endeavors and decide an action plan on how to tackle situations such as the Walk on Wall Street. As a businessman, he is inclined to side with corporate America, which gives him some sense of appeal.
If had not noticed, news stations are businesses and they have to maintain ratings. People like listening to the rantings of Donald Trump, so news stations will play him for often. Trump is always discussing a controversial topic. If you someone who is running for presidency talks about banning a specific religion, the islamic religion or muslims, from America, then it becomes a buzzworthy topic. Angering a massive group of people will get the world talking. Activists will speak against you, but in the media, any publicity is good publicity. As a member of the independent party, meaning he has no affiliations with Republicans or Democrats, the entire population is listening to what is individual beliefs are because he has no predispositions. It's kind of like he made his own party, and there are people out there willing to stand by him. The media continuously highlights him because we want to hear the wild ramblings in order to break them down and discuss the disputatious words quoted by Trump himself. Trump in the media is very paradoxical. People listen to him because his claims are dubious and because his claims are dubious people listen to him.
