Donald Trump has promised to “drain the swamp” of Washington corruption, but he’s not done his best to curb its growth.
The Republican presidential nominee has taken a more populist approach to governing than his Democratic rival, who has promised a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants and has called for the end of the country’s trade deficit.
But the Trump campaign’s message of “diversity” is a “scam,” and “a huge, huge scam,” said former Trump adviser Dan Scavino, who served as communications director on Trump’s presidential campaign and is now a consultant for the Republican National Committee.
“The message of diversity is one of the scariest things about Trump,” Scavinos said.
“He’s not really going to change the way Washington works.”
Trump, who ran for the White House on a platform of making America great again, has been criticized for not going far enough to reduce the size of government.
He also says he doesn’t want to cut back on foreign aid.
But his campaign has been more focused on economic issues, like infrastructure and border security, which are central to his campaign message.
The campaign’s focus on trade is another theme that Scavios said he finds problematic.
“I think that the way Trump’s talking about trade is one thing that I find really frustrating,” Scovinos said in an interview with the New York Times.
“But what I find frustrating is that he hasn’t taken any concrete steps to reduce trade deficits.
He’s just been saying this for the last year.
I find it kind of hard to believe that he has any real idea of how to do that.
He has talked about reducing trade deficits, but that’s only in the sense of bringing back jobs, bringing back companies, bringing jobs back.
I think he’s just got a big vision of bringing things back.
And it’s a scam.”
Trump has said he is interested in bringing back manufacturing jobs, but said recently that he doesn´t want to bring back jobs that he wants to “cut up.”
He has also been criticized by business leaders for his criticism of China and his lack of leadership on trade issues.
Trump, who also has been accused of making racist comments, has said China should be able to do whatever it wants with its currency, which he called “unfair.”
“I am open to China and I want to have good relations with China,” Trump told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly on April 28.
“I want to be friends with China and have good relationships with China.”
Trump also told the Wall Street Journal on April 24 that “China is taking advantage of us and taking advantage” of American workers.
But Trump told the same paper that he does not want to reduce America´s trade deficit with China.
“We can’t be too big on trade,” Trump said, “but we should be smart and we should know what’s going on with our country.
It’s a very big country.”
Scavino said Trump’s rhetoric has helped sell his populist message.
“You can see his populism,” he said.
“He’s very populist, very populist in the way he says what he means, very much about bringing jobs to the United States, about the importance of education, about bringing back American industry, and the importance, I think, of trade.”
“It has made a huge difference,” he added.
“If you look at the poll numbers, it’s been a huge swing.”
The Trump campaign has spent millions on advertisements, but has not released the full cost of the ads.
Trump is relying heavily on social media, which has helped him reach voters with message, Scavio said.
The Trump team also has spent money on the election, but Trump has not spent on advertising.
He said last month that he will not spend money on TV ads, although his campaign did spend $1.3 million on ads during the final days of the election.
Scavinos described Trump as “an outlier.”
“When Donald Trump is talking about, ‘Oh, I want the jobs back, and I don’t want the taxes to go up,’ that’s just not the way that business operates,” Scivino said.
Scavinso said Trump has been able to tap into “the resentment of white Americans who feel left behind by globalization.”
“There is a lot of resentment, a lot, of anger about globalization,” he told Fox.
“And that anger is really not coming from Trump.
That anger is coming from white Americans, and they are not getting the jobs that they want.”
Trump’s campaign has faced a barrage of criticism over the past several months.
The Republican National Convention, which drew more than 4 million people, drew national attention for the first time in two decades.
Trump was booed by supporters during the RNC and the party, which called for him to resign
