A lot has been made of Donald Trump’s run for president being fueled by resentment among the electorate—especially white, working-class voters. But if a trusted Trump surrogate is to be believed, Trump’s campaign has always, from the start, been about resentment—his own. And taking office would be his “revenge.”
Former Apprentice contestant, reality TV star and Trump supporter Omarosa Manigault will appear in a new Frontline documentary about the 2016 election where she opened up about what motivated the billionaire to run for office:
Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.
