As stated in the Articles of Impeachment of Andrew Johnson, he “did unlawfully, and in violation of the Constitution and laws of the United States, issue and order in writing for the removal of Edwin M. Stanton from the office of Secretary for the Department of War” (citation). This statement reveals how Johnson fired Edwin M. Stanton, who was his only secretary at the time, and replaced him. This is a violation of the law wether it happened once or more and a president should not have excuses when it comes to breaking the law. This contrasting view also believes it was reasonable because Johnson thought that if he did not fire him, it would have been unconstitutional. Later in history, Congress repealed the act which he broke.
Besides posing himself as the ideal outsider in a world burdened by growing distrust and precarious politics, Donald Trump’s also utilizes misleading rhetoric that ironically increases trust among his supporters. While Trump’s arguments are filled with logical fallacies from ad hominem attacks, ambiguity, and false syllogisms, Trump is noted for his excessive use of hyperbole. Although Trump’s hyperbolic statements that “nobody has more respect for women than I do”, Obama is “the worst president in the history of the United Sates”, that “NAFTA is the ‘single worst trade deal ever approved’” or “some people said it was the single best speech ever made in that chamber” come across ridiculous and over-the-top, to his supporters his use of hyperbole
One of the reasons why Trump isn’t fit to become president is because he promotes violence, as shown throughout several of his rallies. In the article, “Donald Trump Encourages Violence At His Rallies. His Fans Are Listening,” by Sam Stein and Dana Liebelson, the authors wrote about how a video released showed a gang of men kicking and punching a Black Lives Matter protester at a Trump rally, to which Donald Trump Responded with, “Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing(Diamond).” In other words, supporters of Trump thought it was appropriate to attack a protester all because he disrupted his speech. As a potential leader, Donald Trump shouldn’t have advocated for the violence at his rally just because the person didn’t agree with him.
Donald Trump vs. Adolf Hitler When thinking of two memorable men in history, Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump, both stand out for their controversial ideologies. There are stark differences between Hitler and Trump however, the similarities cannot be ignored. Their large personalities and ignorance, either make them hated or loved by their countries people. While it is eerie to compare a current U.S. presidential candidate to a man who is responsible for the death of 11 million people it's important that we recognize their similarities and not let history repeat itself. In the 2016 presidential campaign Donald Trump’s slogan is “Make America great again.” Back some seventy-five years ago Hitler promised to return glory to Germany after their
First, World War 1 and 2 show how the president has to deal with other countries to make sure everyone in our country is safe. Also, if it weren’t for our presidents in the World Wars, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Next, the Cold War was a war for powers and our presidents helped us so much by giving us a lot of power in the west. People don’t realize how our presidents have evolved over the ages to become more known and more powerful to make sure that the United States of America is a happy place to live. Also, Iran and Afghanistan also known as ISIS, are miserable terrorists, and this falls under the president’s job to make sure that they don’t come into the United States.
Hank Jr. is not only known for his musical career, but also for his views on the world. He is no doubt a republican, and will not keep his opinions to himself. He has referred to Obama as Adolf Hitler—a dictator, full of hatred—, and Obama and Biden to the Three Stooges— as group of actors who play mentally challenged characters. One of the things he did, that caused major controversy was when he lashed out on Obama, saying "We 've got a Muslim for a president who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him!" He wants people to hear what he says, but that is something that continues to get him into trouble, like when he was dropped from monday night.
Senator Joseph McCarthy was a merciless politician who would be censured by the Senate in 1954 for his false accusations. However, his political journey throughout the country had a significant impact on the American public. Americans let fear override their conscious and allowed a bully to insert panic into their minds. McCarthy’s crusade was powerful and convinced the naive public during a time of war to question their own government without sufficient
We live in a society where gay marriage is legal, slavery and any form of discrimination is illegal, where murder of any kind is a crime that will not go unnoticed. Sounds like a great time to be alive doesn’t it? While we have progressed in some positive ways, there is negative progression as well. We have a man running for president who wants to deport and keep put Mexican immigrants, without any real good reason other than how he is racist and sexist. Two traits of humans which seemingly grew during the new imperialism period.
He quickly judged Désirée harshly only because he refused to let go of that bad image. In a like manner, Trump has undervalued hispanics ever since he became president. He has labeled Mexicans as rapists and drug dealers who only cause trouble. There are other races who commit the same acts, yet he did not mention them because their skin color is not dark. Trump ruthlessly judged an entire race based on their ethnicity, he refused to see the good and only focused on the negative.
The thirteenth amendment in the Declaration of Independence ended slavery and the fourteenth Amendment ended slavery in essence. These legislations are set in place however racism is a reoccurring theme in America especially in recent months with President Trump in power. President Trump has a number of motions in place to prohibit individuals from certain races access into America. In situations similar to this it can be difficult for the state to ban racist advertisements when the president holds a huge amount of power. Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning.
The media has portrayed Trump to be a racist, homophobic, sexist, bigot. And Hilary has a corrupt women who would ultimately would be the best of two evils. With no type of qualifications to run our country. Various sexual assault charges, and racial discrimination, Trump was stamped as the poster man for what American doesn 't need to prosper. The media exposing example after example as to why no good can come from him as president and isn 't concerned with change only concerned with power.
Donald Trump has been sweeping the nation in his efforts to win the Republican presidential nomination. When the media trains its lens on Trump, the country appears to be “roiled with across-the-board discontent” (Dionne). His public interactions have split the country into those who categorize themselves as the “silent majority” and those who react with complete dismay toward his radical propositions. But are Trump supporters really the “silent majority”, or are the voices of Conservatives “being amplified beyond all reason” (Dionne)? In E.J.
An example of this is that Donald Trump is trying to get rid of Muslims from our country. Ever since 9/11, Muslims have been taking segregation problems. That is not fair because not every Muslim is a terrorist. According to CNN “Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump called Monday for barring all Muslims from entering the United States (cnn.com).” These are his plans if he becomes president. He wants to build a great wall to block out all immigrants.
November 8th 2016 brought to close one of the most divisive elections in Presidential History. Most Americans see this obvious divide that exist in America at the current moment. Differences among race, gender, religion, political views, experiences, privilege, age are just the starting point to the split that has turned neighbors against each other, friends into enemies, and torn families apart. Its an understatement to say that tensions are high, and wounds are fresh. This countries divide was always going to be a ticking time bomb, and on election day 2016 we saw that bomb explode.
The most common source of this attention due to media and politicians who see this issue as an epidemic to the economy due to their belief that these immigrants are taking jobs from American citizens. Take Donald Trump, who is advocating the construction of a wall on the border between Mexico and the United States to keep immigrates out. The underlying cause for the thinking process of these politicians as well as the public in general is racism. As it may very well be the case that the Immigration Agents that stormed the Mejia’s house were tipped off by some who rather the family not be in the United States at
