Reuters examines how Donald Trump's love of hyperbole could backfire
Reuters dissected Donald Trump’s rhetoric, highlighting how his taste for hyperbole served him in his business life but may backfire in politics. His style of “Trump Talk” - a mix of bullish optimism and overstatement - may in part explain his rise in the polls. While competitors gravely list the country’s ills, Trump tells voters how fantastic everything is going to be once he’s president. But campaigning for the White House is different than hawking commercial real estate, and he risks promising voters more than he can deliver.
