What’s your opinion of the Donald Trump brand? That’s what CNN asked me this morning in a wide-ranging interview that covered branding, politics, and consumer behavior.

When you study the apparent appeal of the Donald Trump brand, you’ll be studying the power of branding in general. On the surface, Trump seems to be a refreshing alternative to politics as usual in Washington, D.C. But will that appeal last? Find out my take on that question in the CNN interview below.

I’d be curious to hear your take on the Trump brand. Do you agree that he gets away with saying sexist and racist things that would get him fired from any regular corporation? Or do you feel that what he says is refreshing and honest?

Let me know your thoughts below.
