He's a bullshit salesman. He's searching for the best way to
frame the next line of bullshit that comes out of his mouth.

He could be remembering what renting this 3/4-empty venue cost him, though.

Watch for it when you see him speak. I have been annoyed by it forever.

Arms behind the back often indicates something to hide, but the exposed torso indicates someone who is trusting of those they are around.

If there were sound I wouldn't be surprised if he was caught for the moment in a pause, even a barely there pause, where his thought process is looking for the next word, so he repeats the previous word while his mind searches for the one he wants - but from the look on his face, he won't find the word, so he'll repeat his usual phrases until he can stumble on a new train of thought. Not brand new, but BRAND new - the new train of thought, for Trump, just means a jump to one of the short-ads he uses to advertise his brand.

Trump pretty much free associates from a defined set of terms and phrases. Those words and phrases are little more than jingles and cut-rate slogans really.


But I could be wrong. lol

Just having fun with the question.
