Politicians have a habit of being swayed by their partisan masters, but it’s also a tactic that politicians themselves sometimes use to sell products and services.
When a politician is a fan of a particular brand or a brand’s brand, that’s the first thing that comes to mind when he or she sees the name.
That’s exactly what happened with President Donald Trump, who used to be an avid fan of Target.
Trump, a Republican who is currently running for reelection in 2020, has been a Target loyalist for years.
The president has been shopping at Target every weekend since the company first opened its doors in the U.S. in 1985.
He has a loyal following on social media and the president’s son, Barron, is a Target fan as well.
“He’s been a loyal Target customer since he was a little boy,” Trump said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday.
“And I’m not talking about one of those people that you get on Facebook.
I mean, he’s one of the people that I buy products for and I get them in his hands.”
In January, the president was spotted buying groceries from Target at the White House, and he was reportedly asked to buy a bunch of different kinds of groceries, including chicken nuggets.
Trump said he didn’t think the president had been asked to do that, but that he did find himself shopping there.
The President also said he’d go back to Target whenever he visited, and that the company was one of his favorites to shop at.
“They’re a great company, and they do a fantastic job,” Trump told the New York Times on Thursday.
“I like Target.”
The president’s affinity for Target isn’t the only thing he’s been using to make deals on groceries, either.
Trump also uses Target as a source of cheap groceries, and as an excuse to shop around.
“There’s a huge difference between going to Walmart and buying food, and going to Target and buying stuff,” Trump was quoted as saying by the Times.
“If you go to Walmart, you’ll get your goods in a couple of days.”
Target has long been a favorite destination for politicians.
The company’s founder, Fred Smith, once told an interviewer that he was the “most successful salesman of all time” because of his “expertise in dealing.”
He also said that he used his knowledge of politics and business to sell his business to investors and customers.
