7 Public Speaking Tips From Donald Trump

Politics aside, Donald Trump’s ability to hold the attention of an audience and indeed a nation is undeniable. It’s a quality that anyone who has done public speaking, be it to a stadium or to a boardroom, would be envious of.

To figure out what makes Trump so hard to ignore, VICE News spoke to Dr. Jennifer Mercieca, a professor and historian of political rhetoric, and Mark Liberman, a professor of linguistics and computer science. Both have studied Trump’s speech extensively and together they provided us seven signatures moves Trump uses to engage an audience.

"he has gotten us so curious to find out whats next" … it's your fucking PRESIDENT and not the next episode of the walking dead for gods sake! come to your senses, this guy is a threat that to the entire world and to america at the very first! i love how calm americans go about this topic and the fact that trump made america as a political country a laughing matter of the whole world. this guy already did irreparable damage to the honor and dignity of being the president of the US, and he will continue to shit on it, until 2020 when people are so fucked up, that kanye west actually has a chance!

Are you joking? Nothing he says is coherent

MrTriple3 says:

With The Donald's rise to power, it's now impossible to believe that the will of the people should carry the day. US citizens love to think that their country is generous, moral, exceptional, destined to be the shining light on the hill. Now we can see that about half of the voters think a vain, egotistical, selfish, dishonest, willfully ignorant sexual predator should be held up as the leader. Sad beyond words!

Killer Snow says:

Trumps the best. if you disagree educate yourself about what he’s done and what he’s wants done. You might find out he’s a decent guy with a sense of humor.

It took 32 years for the 3 prior administrations to totally destroy this nation and her people, and Trump’s first 6 months to begin a major unwind of all the prior traitorous issues.
Pretty da*n good for the first 6 months – wouldn’t you say?
We owe President Trump a sincere debt of our gratitude.
