There's nothing wrong with being a bully - you just have to do it tactfully. Anyone who knows bill gates will tell you he bullied and screamed at his staff to do better. Everyday at my conpany people 'bully' others to perform better - it may be gentlr, it may be a threat of being fired,it may be criticizing ones intelligence. I hear people call each other moros, idiots with an f word in front nearly everyday ever since i climbed up to a middle tier corporate rank. The lower ranks were actually far nicer to each other - the higher up the more backstabbing, treachery, deceit, bullying, etc. Nonethelesd thats how sh!t gets done. Besides people like leaders who give off an image of being better, being strong, being energetic and outspoken perhaps even crass. Some call it being a bully, I call it having a type a alpha male personality. Humans really aren't that much different than a pack of wild dogs. We both establish communities in dogs case packs, in our case cities countries etc. The top dog gets to rule after battling it out with any contenders - now its more civilized but in many countries its still a bloodsport. In this case trump is top dog because he defeated all contenders via the primaries and then election.
I certainly wouldn't say he's of 'average' intelligence as the average american is far dumber. Also, he went to Wharton for an MBA but actually his grades or education were never brought up. With bush he was reportedly a c student and enjoyed his drink and cocaine while with obama they questioned if he even attended in the first place. But yes I doubt he would've been nearly as wealthy if not for his fathers connections in NYC. Screw the supposed $1mil loan from his dad, that meant nothing. Its his connections that counted. Still though, he could've blew it all away and ran the trump organization into the ground. Instead he expanded its portfolio and took it to an international level. So I def give him props for that atleast. He did grow the business a lot from what his dad left him. He's no mastermind like martin shrkeli though
