Speaking of direct-response techniques, nice headline! I see what you did there.

As a career and current practitioner of the DRTV arts, I see your point. But … I think you are confusing persuasion, in general, with infomercial-style persuasion. Trump is a Master Persuader (HT: Scott Adams), so his techniques will have commonality with any craft that uses persuasion as its primary tool. Negotiators will see a negotiator, etc.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
