    Donald Trump's book _The Art of the Deal_ was really written by a ghostwriter.
    When Donald Trump writes in his own narcissistic voice, he sounds like
    a nearly illiterate troll with primitive sentence structure and childish vocabulary.
    His style may appeal to his many nearly illiterate American supporters.

    "Bad ‘dudes’ and dumb deals – Trumpspeak decoded:
    What exactly does the president mean when he brands opponents
    ‘dishonest’ or ‘failing’? Why is so much of what he sees ‘horrible’ or
    ‘sad’? Get to grips with Donald Trump’s peculiarly restricted vocabulary"

    The way that Donald Trump misuses English should be embarrassing if
    it were done by a fairly intelligent child (even a non-native speaker of English).

    The son of an extremely wealthy white American family does not have to learn how to write
    English at more than a most rudimentary level when he can hire others to do that for him.
