Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, was a successful entrepreneur in business and real estate long before he put his name in the hat for a position in the executive branch of government. He’s a self-made millionaire and obviously knows what it takes to get to the top and stay there.
Since 1971 Donald Trump has been creating an empire of luxury real estate with iconic names such as Grand Hyatt Hotel and Trump Tower. He’s even made his name in the world of television entertainment, winning a star on the celebrated Walk of Fame. Under the show The Apprentice, he single-handedly brought to great success in the form of millions of dollars. His net worth sits at $4 billion, and he owns holdings being worth billions more in equitable assets. That’s money you can’t buy. Decades before becoming President of the United States, Donald Trump has been doing business in the United States and internationally with a level of prestige.
In the wake of his presidential nomination and election, a swarm of fake news and propaganda circulated both television and the internet in all forms of media. And it’s not just fake news — huge media conglomerates have been cashing in on Donald Trump from the beginning of the election to present day. NBC went as far as to call Trump’s presidential win an upset. Many independent and privately funded organizations did cover stories favoring Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump and used the controversy to create cash.
This New York Times article on polling projections showed Hillary Clinton leading in polls for months up to the date that the election happened.
This CNN poll projected that 7 out of 10 voters were to vote for Hilary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
And it hasn’t stopped since he was elected the next president. In present day these same media outlets are criticizing the celebrity quality of the president’s inaugural address and his approval rating as he begins his presidential term. Protesters are even being paid to attend protests via job advertisements in dozens of cities. Despite the negative press — you can probably call it downright bashing, Trump has taken the criticism and continues to hold both the media institution and the American political establishment accountable for their actions.
It’s time for the media to join the majority of our country that has faith and admiration for the next President of the United States Donald Trump. He is certainly the wealthiest president coming into office, and stands at the head of a large list of accolades through his many years in business. It’s time for media organizations to stop promoting negative information to increase their marketing. Millions of Americans tune in and use these services and it’s time for organizations to be aware of the consequences.
Hopefully with the success that Donald Trump brings from business into the American political system, these organizations will shift their agendas away from the negative portrayal of our President. If they start listening to the words that he’s been saying for decades instead of trying to make a cover story article out of of them, maybe it would happen sooner rather than later.
