When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, he made no secret of the fact that he was looking for a niche audience.
And the one he chose was one that wasn’t too popular with his rivals, his rivals’ rivals.
“I’m not talking about the media, I’m not even talking about Hollywood,” Trump told the New York Times.
“I’m talking about a certain kind of a people.
I’m talking to people who are so unhappy with their lives that they’re looking for something to cheer them up.”
He wasn’t talking about, say, the hipsters who are frustrated with the state of the economy, or the tech workers who are unhappy with the direction of the country.
“They are looking for somebody to be a hero to them,” Trump said.
“They are not looking for someone to say they’re doing the right thing, to say, ‘I’m going to do the right things,’ but to say that they will never vote for me.
They’re looking to be their own hero.
I want to be like them.”
In a 2016 interview with ABC News, Trump said that he had been working with celebrities and other celebrities on a project, “Celebrity Apprentice,” and it was based on the idea of a show for people who have the energy, the drive and the ambition.
“The celebrity-driven reality show is not what I am about,” Trump explained.
“It’s a very bad show.
It’s very, very bad.
And it’s just not who I am.”
Trump, who also has a history of doing things the wrong way, has a knack for turning these celebrity types against themselves.
He has tried to paint them as a bunch of losers and a bunch in a bad mood.
And he has done so without a clue that they might be wrong.
In 2016, for instance, he said he was going to spend $5 million to buy the “Limbaugh Show,” a late-night talk show hosted by comedian Lou Dobbs.
And then, in January 2017, he tried to launch his own reality show.
That’s when the backlash began.
In February, the show he was trying to launch was cancelled by the network.
Then, on March 6, he announced that he would no longer be appearing on the network’s “Celebuzz” because the network felt that the show had become too much of a distraction from the Republican National Convention.
The day after that announcement, Trump announced that his new reality show, “The Apprentice,” was “on hold.”
He said he would make a decision on whether to continue the show at some point in the next few weeks.
But he didn’t stop there.
He then announced that “The Celebrity Apprentice” would air a new season in January 2018.
And on April 13, 2018, the network told him that the series had been canceled.
The same day, Trump posted on Twitter that he still wanted to make a show.
But instead of launching the show in the spring of 2019, he told CNN that the “Celebrex” reality show he had planned to start in the fall would not air until 2019.
That meant the show was on hold for three years.
In other words, Trump waited two years to make an announcement about the cancellation of his show.
And then, after three years, he decided to make another announcement.
In an interview with the New Yorker, Trump admitted to being frustrated by the fact he had not gotten the attention he wanted from celebrities.
“So I guess the reality is I had been in a position where I wasn’t getting any attention from the celebrities that were looking to come to the inauguration,” Trump added.
“And I said, well, I can do this.
I can go on the radio and talk to them, and they will listen.”
Trump has since said that his goal is to get back to the top of the polls.
And when he did announce his candidacy in June of 2016, he did so on the back of his promise to make America great again.
“There are people in this country that are very unhappy,” Trump declared.
“The people that are in a good place are the ones who are not in a great place.
And I think that is what we have to do.
And we have got to make this country great again.”
In other terms, he is making America great, as he has said he will do, again, and again.
And when he gets there, he wants to be remembered as the man who turned America around.
