In a society that is built on a culture of 'winning' (e.g. Vince Lombardi: "Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.") then you create an opportunity for those who are willing to succeed at all costs. Highly capable people who are bound by normal ethics will fail to succeed against less capable people who are not. When those people advance, they will promote and patronize people like them, and all questions of morality and decency will be swept aside. Thus, we have Trump.
