He is the reality television show President. Everything Donald Trump does is for the purpose of stoking his ratings. He loves attention grabbing Tweets, using them as a tool to stoke enthusiasm. The Tweets are the foundation of his high profile, reality television show personality.
Trump knows, the more outlandish he is the more his base pays attention and the more they are motivated to vote. He wants to keep that motivation high by using what he knows best:
His reality television show experience. This is going to be true for the upcoming GOP convention.
(The New York Times) “Two producers of “The Apprentice,” where Mr. Trump rose to TV stardom, are involved in the planning. Sadoux Kim, a longtime deputy to the “Apprentice” creator Mark Burnett, is a lead consultant on the production. Mr. Kim once served as a Miss Universe judge when Mr. Trump owned the pageant. Chuck LaBella, a former NBC entertainment executive who helped produce “The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump,” is also on the payroll.
Party officials say their convention — during which Mr. Trump is expected to speak every night in the 10 p.m. hour — will ultimately surpass the Democrats’ telethon-like show, which the president and his allies have repeatedly called “dark,” depressing and thin on policy proposals. “We’re going to have more of it live than what they did,” Mr. Trump told Fox News on Thursday. “I think it’s pretty boring when you do tapes.”
Exactly what that looks like remains an open question…
Typically, the nominee makes a mundane appearance early in the convention — waving or watching from the wings — before a major speech at the end. Mr. Trump has dismissed that model and now plans to directly address the nation in prime-time on each of the convention’s four nights. The president wants the opportunity to rebut charges made against him throughout the Democratic program, aides said, particularly on his handling of the coronavirus crisis.”
Trump will be center stage. Instead of giving a convention, Trump wants this to be “The Trump Show.” Viewers can expect sharp attacks, outlandishly unbelievable claims, a disregard for the truth, and an attempt to create a political circus surrounding “The Trump.”
Donald Trump is unconventional. The upcoming convention will be unconventional.
Welcome to the GOP convention “The Apprentice” style giving viewers the ultimate propaganda show where it is all about Donald Trump and nobody else.

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
