Trump announces he will build a wall across the board. His supporters go wild. Trump announces that he doesn't play chess with women, and walks out. His supporters say the game was rigged from the beginning.
The chess game is covered by every media outlet in the world despite only having 3 moves and being well on the way to fools mate.
If I had to speculate, based upon his personality, about his chess style, I suspect that
Donald Trump would be an extremely impulsive aggressive tactical player who ignored
longer term positional considerations and was too lazy to study endgame technique.
Donald Trump might well like a simplistic opening such as the Stonewall Attack (which
was recommended in an old American beginners' book by I.A. Horowitz).
Donald Trump might reject algebraic notation in favor of English descriptive notation on
the grounds that the word 'algebra' is derived from Arabic, a sign of an Islamist conspiracy.
