Cohen Testimony: Trump Never Expected To Win, Told Me His Campaign Was “Greatest Infomercial In History”

“Donald Trump is a man who ran for office to make his brand great, not to make our country great. He had no desire or intention to lead this nation, only to market himself and to build his wealth and power. Mr. Trump would often say this campaign was going to be the greatest infomercial in political history. He never expected to win the primary. He never expected to win the general election. The campaign for him was always a marketing opportunity.” – Michael Cohen, reading from prepared remarks before the US House Oversight Committee.
