Trump uses his stereotypical description of immigrants as a scapegoat for the nation’s drug and crime problems, and the audience is easily wooed. Trump describes the immigrants as “they” and the audience as “you”.

The Americans concern about conservatism not looking after their best interest in the future of America. While, American political focus is on single issues like same sex marriages and the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals policies during Obama administration, causes American’s to have questions.

His strategy is simple. He has cast aside the careful and politically correct considerations of past and present candidates while attacking liberal agendas with accuracy and zest.
