I find it very peculiar that, in the beginning of the election processes, the media claimed that Donald Trump was nothing but a media hog, showoff and a big mouth. The media were wrong because the man went on to be a candidate for president.

Then the media said that Trump had no substance and was using the opportunity to sell books, get TV ratings and attract new business. The media were wrong again because he advanced to get the nomination of the Republican party.

Then the media said Trump did not stand a chance of winning, and again the media were wrong.

Now the media are saying that Trump needs to do this or that to be successful as president.

I would not listen to the media.
