Is Donald Trump Using Hypnosis, Hyperempiria,or NLP?

Many of my psychology clients have been asking whether or not Donald Trump's success might be due to his using hypnosis or hyperempiria. Whenever you use "alternative facts" in place of the real ones, as his advisor Kellyann Conway recently admitted, it is an attempt to harness the power of suggestion. But if no induction is used, why is it still sometimes effective?

A recent article in Psychology Today stated that half of all Americans couldn't come up with a sudden demand for $400 in a crisis. Although Trump may be unwittingly using some techniques which are commonly referred to in lay hypnosis circles as NLP or neuro-linguistic programming. Almost everyone now agrees that there are also a lot of angry and ill-informed voters out there. on both the right and the left, who supported either Trump and/or Sanders because they feel that the system has failed them. But Sanders, at least, uses real facts instead of "Trumped up" ones!
