Donald Trump has been called many things by the media over the course of this campaign — mostly variations of bigot or bully — but the billionaire businessman’s biggest strengths may be hidden in those very accusations.
While much negatively has surrounded the presumptive nominee’s egocentric brags and powerful putdowns, less energy has been focused on how incredibly effective his tactics have proven themselves to be.

Now that the two presumptive nominees have effectively wiped out their primary competitors, however, we no longer have to speculate. Donald has hit Clinton hard, and according to the polls, he’s pulling ahead in ways that seemed impossible just a few short weeks ago.
