Branding is critical leverage that enhances negotiation strength in all low-and high-stakes transactions, interactions, and exchanges. In fact, the most controversial and unconventional candidate in the history of presidential elections ran an entire campaign based on his personal brand.

As the Stormy Daniels scandal continues to emerge alleging to link and now President Trump to an affair with the adult film star, we have learned that someone valued protecting Trump’s brand not for the mere $130,000 allegedly paid in hush money to Ms. Daniels, but for the harm her story might inflict upon Mr. Trump’s brand. It is alleged that a violation of the hush money agreement carried a penalty of $ 1,000,000 per incident. Such penalty demonstrates the intense efforts to protect the Trump brand.
