Trump is an eloquent speaker in one sense, that he knows exactly the phrases people want to hear and says or repeats them at the right time. It doesn't matter a bit what those phrases are and whether they mean anything.
Psychopaths are master manipulators. It reminds me in some ways of how Manson was able to manipulate his cult of followers.

"The key to Manson’s control, as with all cult leaders, was to ensure that followers not only saw him as an all-powerful, messiah-like figure, but that followers see themselves as members of a superior elite that has the answer to the world’s problems – even if that means killing the rest of the world along the way. Manson persuaded his followers to commit murders to trigger “Helter Skelter” where there would be a “race war” which would elevate him to world leadership. He espoused a rambling, incoherent apocalyptic world view that was nevertheless completing captivating for his followers."
