Donald Trump is already considered one of the most controversial Presidential candidates, but the latest rumor that started spreading lately could take things to a whole new level! Apparently, the main reason why the businessman started his campaign was just for the sake of making his own brand more popular.
It all started with a claim for one of his strategists…
Of course, this is by far one of the most craziest scenarios we’ve heard lately, but, according to The Huffington Post, more details about Trump‘s strategy were revealed by Stephanie Cegielski, strategist for the Make America Great Again super PAC.
“Almost a year ago, recruited for my public relations and public policy expertise, I sat in Trump Tower being told that the goal was to get The Donald to poll in double digits and come in second in delegate count. That was it.” Cegielski said.
“The Trump camp would have been satisfied to see him polling at 12% and taking second place to a candidate who might hold 50%. His candidacy was a protest candidacy,” she added, basically dropping the bomb.
Was this campaign just for a self-esteem boost?
Even more, Stephanie Cegielski says that everybody who supports Donald Trump should actually stop doing it, if they want to help their favorite candidate. The only thing he wants from this campaign is the ability of saying the he could have run the White House. We must admit that he would have a chance, considering his big number of supporters.
Again, we can’t be sure about the veridicity of these details, so, until further confirmation, our recommendation is to take everything with a pinch of salt. Yes, Donald Trump admitting Mrs. Cegielski’s claims would definitely be one of the biggest shocks a presidential race generated! And, even if we like it or not, we would call him brilliant for coming up with such a strategy.
