In one section of the Book he discusses how he beat all of his competition when building on the Atlantic City Boardwalk and in his dealings to build Battery Park. When he was a younger man he realized that "the Press likes talking about Donald Trump". And not always in a good way. But he realized that you make your opposition insignificant if you keep your name out there and keep people talking about you. He notes that sometimes you even have to make outrageous statements, but if that is what it takes to keep the Press talking about you, then deal with the fallout, the objective is to keep them talking about you and ignoring your opponent.
Another lesson he learned is to think big and make big deals. When he was operating small, he felt he was just treading water. The person who made him realize this was President Jimmy Carter. After Carter left office and was building his Library he went to President Trump for a donation. Trump thought he would ask for a small amount. Instead when Trump asked him how much he was talking about, President Carter said "a donation of 10 million dollars". Trump was basically dumbfounded, he said he liked Jimmy Carter but that took a lot of nerve to ask for 10 million dollars. But he realized that is how President Carter became President. You become President by going after the big things, the big deals. You don't take the office of the most important position on earth by thinking small. This of course was one of the lessons that led to really big deals. When he had nothing but a small office and some apartment buildings, he began going after big things, people didn't even know he had nothing more than a tiny office. But the deals came. You can see this in how he just beat China. Showing them who has the real economic power. He shut down China's second largest tech company, globally, with one decision. They offered five hundred million to allow the exports. He wasn't thinking small (500 million) and instead said "How about 1.5 billion". They settled for 1.2 billion. Now they know the real economic power the United States carries AND he not only negotiated a better deal but can negotiate a much better trade deal with China from a position of strength. Which is also in his book.
President Trump does not like to waste time. His phone time limit I think he states was five minutes. If a deal is going nowhere in five minutes then he will hang up. And they will call back, with a better deal. Or a better offer. You see this type of negotiation with North Korea now.
Anyone who thinks a single thing that President Trump is doing or has done is a mistake, done by accident, ineptness of anything else should read this Book. Every single thing you see is by design, and he wrote about it 30 plus years ago.
Until someone reads this book, they don't know anything about President Trump. And none of his opposition can win against him.
And this book explains how.
This book helps explain why the United States is indeed now so fortunate to have non career politician redirect and challenge our traditional way of running our country domestically and internationally.
Having overcome failure and then success, and
then learning from it, demands a man of Donald Trump’s business intellect and personal success who has the guts and talents to overcome lethargy and push new directions to move our country forward as a true world leader and not just as a follower who goes along to get along.
Renewed technological leadership and success for our country can be fulfilled by Donald Trump’s innate talents and drive to continue our historical reputation as a recognized world success story of American democracy in action.
