Trump The Joker. So the unthinkable actually happened. Since the US election, Trump has been making conciliatory noises that suggest his election campaign was a bit of a stunt, and all that nasty rhetoric, well he really didn't mean it. More locker room talk. So I guess the whole country must get behind him and hope it works. Having a career in the marketing business didn't give me any insight to detect this strategy, if in fact it was.
