President Trump still thinks like a Real Estate Developer and it’s benefitting him
When Donald Trump made his first speech before the United Nations General Assembly, he noted that the building he was speaking in had helped make a nearby residential tower of his a success. When he was addressing racial violence in Charlottesville, he took time to note that he owns a nearby winery. This observation shows that Trump still thinks like a developer, even if he’s currently the Honourable President of US.
During his campaign and in his first year in office, Trump approached some of the most intractable problems in U.S. politics like immigration, the economy and the Middle East problem, etc. as a series of concrete building projects, looking to pull together a deal, find financing and sell the finished product to the public. This approach helped him immensely in his campaign. But at office, he has struggled with the same issues that sometimes plagued his real-estate projects as a developer which are finding financing, getting bureaucratic approval and dealing with public disappointment when the project is scaled back.
‘Build the Wall’, ‘Infrastructure Week’, and ‘Jerusalem Embassy’ are some of the lively examples of his Real Estate Developer thinking which he was earlier by profession. The application of his business tactics always brought him good response overall.
