A Winner in Adversity

A Winner in Adversity

Known as the most powerful person currently in the world, Donald John Trump is the 45th President of the United States. A businessman and television personality before entering politics, he has faced consistent opposition and criticisms for his policies, statements and ideas. However, shrugging off everything that’s negative, he has focused on work and achievements

Trump has consistently received backlash for his populist, protectionist, and nationalist policies, by the world liberals. He has even been polled as the least popular US President in the history of modern opinion polls. His lack of experience in administration and politics has gone heavily against him. Figures have always spoken badly for him. While 64% Americans rated for Barack Obama that they had confidence in him to do the right thing when it came to international affairs, only 22% showed confidence in Trump on the same parameters. Actually, majority of voters have shown low opinions of his character and competence.

However, the question is: has this affected Trump? Not really, as he has continued with his policies, statements and ideas as if oblivious of any critic’s or opponent’s existence. It has definitely given him an advantage too; he is able to show he has done something, as consistently focusing on corrections, he has been able to deliver finally.

Actually, his wins are more than his losses, in any field, be it business, politics or his personal life. He has managed his businesses well, and according to March 2018 estimates by Forbes magazine, he is the world’s 766th richest person with a net worth of US$3.1 billion, and therefore one of the richest politicians in American history and the richest President of USA.

He has even co-authored several books, including The Art of the Deal, owned the Miss Universe and Miss USA beauty pageants from 1996 to 2015, and produced & hosted the reality television show The Apprentice from 2003 to 2015.
