He does this to grab the headlines. He is the master at getting PR, good and bad.
Mr. Trump says pretty much what the conservative, middle Americans want to hear. Because he is not a politician and hasn't been bought by lobbyists and special interest groups, he can say and do what he pleases.
Mr.Trump brags about his wealth. He claims he doesn't need political contributions to help put him in the White House. Right now, he is leading the polls by a big percentage in becoming the Republican candidate for the 2016 election.
Chances are he will be nominated and chances are his Democratic adversary (opponent) will be Hillary Clinton.
Trump is an entertainer, as well as an incredibly shrewd businessman with billions upon billions of dollars. For him, the only thing left to accomplish is becoming the next president of the United States. (V.C)
