A few thoughts about the election.
A big reason Trump outsmarted his opponents: He is a business guy. An entrepreneur. More – he is a developer.
This business guy looked at spending campaign money differently than his politician opponents did. A business guy asks, “If we spend this money, will we get a proper return? Show me how.” A politician says, “Spend the money. We’ll squeeze more from our big donors.”
Result: Trump spent a fraction of what his opponents spent. And whipped them.
