He loves Norman Vincent Peale's LOA classic, The Power of Positive Thinking. Peale, who died in 1993 and was a Christian minister, even officiated Trump's first wedding to Ivana.
Trump wrote several books together with another well-known LOA disciple, Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad, Poor Dad fame.
If you know anything about the Law of Attraction, you realize why it is that Trump surrounds himself with gold wherever he goes.
He doesn't talk much about the why, but his friend Kiyosaki is much more outspoken about it. In a June 2017 interview with Kitco News, he said that he uses gold to boost his net worth:
“If I want $10,000 a month, I hold $10,000 in gold; gold is an attractor and people need to understand that if you buy more gold, your income goes up.”
He also said that besides being real money, he views gold as something spiritual.
I'd bet you anything that for the same reason, Trump Tower looks like Aladdin's cave of riches.
That's also why Trump would call the Democrats winning the House in the midterm election a "big success."
The Law of Attraction teaches to always speak positively and pretend what you want to happen is already here.
That's what Trump is doing. By reframing every setback as a success and every challenge as a slam dunk win, he not only makes his followers feel good—he is actually, physically changing things through manifestation.
Whatever you think of Trump, he is a master of the Law of Attraction... and we can all learn a lot from him.
