"Attacking one's opponent may seem like the most obvious tactic imaginable in politics, but Trump took this tactic to such an extreme that he revolutionized the political scene. Trump grew infamous on the trail for his unconventional, vicious, yet undeniable effective attacks, the kind that caused everyone in the media and politics to assume he'd finally gone to far. And these weren't the kind of attacks everyone knew but just wouldn't say; they were whole new veins of thinking." - Christopher Bedford , The Art of the Donald: Lessons from America's Philosopher-in-Chief (2017)
