CNN | Washington (CNN) — Donald Trump is using his business experience to bolster the Republican Party.
He’s using his celebrity status to help the GOP regain a national image.
And he’s using the party’s electoral victories as a springboard to try to unseat Democratic leaders in the 2018 midterm elections.
Trump’s political rise is part of a broader wave of populist-driven Republican politics sweeping the country.
He used his business and media fortunes to help his father build a successful real estate empire.
He took on powerful Wall Street banks to help build his business empire and used his fame and fortune to help launch his presidential campaign.
Now, Trump and some of his Republican allies are looking to capitalize on the GOP’s gains to help elect GOP leaders and put a Republican president in the White House.
They’re using the election results to build a broader, more effective GOP, including by building a strong anti-establishment coalition and making gains against Democrats.
Trump is among the Republican leaders who have publicly praised Trump’s election.
“I am proud of the victory of Donald Trump.
We are finally on the right track to making America great again,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said at a news conference Tuesday.
Ryan said the Republican National Committee (RNC) has been “working to unite and unify our party and the Republican base, while also fighting for our economic prosperity and our national security.”
Trump’s strategy is to make the party more unified than ever before, Ryan said.
“And this is what Donald Trump has done.
He has built a base of people who are really excited about what he is doing, and we are seeing that on the ground.”
Trump was able to get a boost from a number of factors, including the GOP presidential nominee’s controversial rhetoric and the party winning in large part due to Republican voters’ support for Trump, a poll by ABC News and USA Today in November found.
The polls, conducted before Trump became the presumptive nominee, found that Democrats are increasingly worried about the country and worried about their economic future.
The poll found that 46 percent of Democrats believe that their economic situation will get worse in the future.
Fifty-two percent of Trump supporters said they would be more worried about losing their jobs and more worried that their country would be attacked by the global powers.
Trump won the White White House in part because of the Republican establishment, including former GOP presidents John McCain and Mitt Romney, and the support of some conservative leaders.
Trump’s success is partly because of those Republican leaders, who see Trump as a leader willing to stand up to the establishment.
“Donald Trump has been the best president to be running for president in this country,” McCain said in a CNN interview after the election.
“He has been very honest, very straightforward and very straight-forward,” Romney said in an interview with CNN.
“He doesn’t want to be the guy that takes advantage of the establishment.”
Trump has taken credit for helping to build his businesses, which he helped build in New York and Las Vegas, and he has built his own real estate properties in some of the most expensive areas in the country, including in New Jersey and Florida.
He bought the Atlantic City casino empire, the Grand Hyatt hotel in Washington, D.C., and the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.
Trump is also a major investor in the Republican Governors Association, a group of state governors that has a direct impact on the party, which is dominated by establishment Republicans.
“I think he has a very big impact on how we are running,” said Mike Murphy, a GOP strategist in Nevada.
“We are not running as the party of Lincoln or Reagan.
We’re running as a party of Trump.
That is why the Republican party is so energized.”
Murphy said Trump’s presidency is a major reason why Democrats have lost seats in Congress.
“The Republican Party is really in crisis,” Murphy said.
“The Republican establishment has had to decide: If we are going to run as the people who want to get you elected, we’re going to have to win over some of those people,” Murphy continued.
“They are going out of their way to make sure they don’t win a majority of the votes in Congress, and so they’re going after Trump.”
Trump has built the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Washington.
The hotel has been one of Trump’s most popular properties.
The party is also struggling to win the support and money of voters.
It lost seats to Democrats in the House and the Senate in 2016, losing seats in the midterms and taking seats in states such as Pennsylvania and California that Trump won.
The Republican Party has been able to win seats in key states that traditionally go for Democrats.
But the party is losing ground in other parts of the country where Democrats hold seats.
The GOP has been trying to make inroads with white voters in the Midwest, a key voting bloc.
That has meant hiring former Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., who was defeated by Rep. Joe Walsh, R
