Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning. A president is supposed to be a authoritative figure whom stops racism instead of spreading it. However, the president has far lower power than imagined. It is vital that the state intervene in situations like so to prevent such racism by implementing new laws that correspond with the every growing power of social media and advertisements. President Trump is utterly disliked by a huge number of people worldwide, there has also been a petition sign by thirty thousand Irish people voting against his visit to
With multiple ad hominem attacks to his predecessors, he evoked a sense of urgency of his appointment as President in these dire times to “Make America Great Again”. He also extensively appealed to the pathos or emotions of the audience by using simple and direct language. In a nation where patriotism should never be underestimated, Trump tugged the heartstrings of his target audience to provide reassurance. However, Trump’s persuasiveness is weakened as a result of his failure to establish any logic to his ample arguments, especially to the American citizens who did not vote for him but have to accept him as their President for the next four years. Echoing a nationalist and populist undertone, Trump approached the topics of American policy and economy with a focus on
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.
Rationale: Personally, I find Donald Trump irrational and unsuitable to become the next American President. Accordingly, I have been having a trouble understanding the popularity and support he has. For this reason, I wanted to investigate on his speech, especially its linguistic features, in order to comprehend why and how people have faith in him. Hence, for the written task for Part 2 – Language and mass communication of the course, I have decided to write an article by a critic in reaction to Donald Trump’s announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States, which was delivered on the sixteenth of June, 2015. An article is appropriate for this task because it allows me to express my understanding and opinion.
Furthermore, he can’t tell what is in the best interest of the nation. The amount of criticism coming from Trump about the leaders in America and his republican opponents is tremendous. By mentioning his opponents acts and believes he puts himself in a better positon in hopes to get himself elected as the final republican candidate. Donald Trump establishes his ethos by mentioning his earlier experiences and background. According to himself he’s worth as a presidential candidate because of his experience in the business, and that he’s not the typical “nice person” that people have seen in the past elections.
Donald Trump is sexist and it is beyond me how he got so far in this presidential race. Anyone who is planning on voting for Trump or is considering to vote for him, please keep in mind the consequences for our country when he does become president. The language the president of the United States uses is of great importance, since his words will reach and inspire
Now America has elected Donald Trump as president. People are now regretting that decision because they don 't think Trump will make America great again. Right now America doesn 't know if trusting trump was a good decision or a bad one cause people cant see the future and see if America is great or worse than what is now. Trusting anyone completely can lead people to their
On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza shot and killed twenty students. Americans were devastated by this tragedy. People were shocked that such a tragic event could take place and immediately had to find a place to push the blame. This blame got placed on the United States Government. Society buys into the Sandy Hook conspiracy theory because of the mindset on
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.
Has our society overcome the Holocaust? A time period were more than six million Jews were persecuted and murdered by the Nazi regime and its collaborators in Germany because of their religion. It’s very unlikely. More than seventy years after the end of the Holocaust, our society still mistreats and excludes people because of their religion, culture, skin color or gender. These discriminating and prejudiced acts are reprehensible and should be banned from our society.
This is criticized against because opposers say that they “are thus likely to amplify the power of an already well-represented group.” This meaning that families may vote together on the same topics. This is untrue because in my family my dad voted for president Donald Trump and if I had the right to vote I would have voted for Secretary Hillary Clinton. I believed that what Donald Trump was saying was against what I believed and my dad felt the same way as Donald Trump. This goes to show that families or people assumed to have the same opinion don’t always agree on everything. Letting a new age group vote will help show the diversity that is among them.
In E.J. Dionne Jr.’s editorial titled “Don’t Fall for the Media Distortion about Trump”, the popularity of Trump is questioned and analyzed based on the media’s portrayal of his political race. Dionne disperses an array of different logical appeals throughout his editorial to develop and clarify his argument. After discussing poll numbers in favor of the current president, the author states that if Americans “had lost all confidence in their institutions” (Dionne), discontent would be more evident. With this assertion, the author indicates that the views of Trump supporters are not representative of the American public.
I believe this because it helped him get his points across and he made his objective a little clearer. The vocabulary along with the sentence structure was appropriate for both candidates. Neither of the candidates disrespected nor used foul language against each other. My first impression that Donald Trump created for me is that he is a smart man he has a a lot of great ideas and some not good ideas but he has a plan for the American people and that is change. I like the idea that Donald trump is trying to get across but I do not like his views on immigrants, colored people, and abortion.
The fact is that Trump doesn’t have a grand plan and his ideas are typical conservative-American. He is playing to the American dream at a time when the citizens are beyond frustrated with the do-nothing politicians in office who are sweeping all of their problems under a floor rug. Both the economy and security has initially left our country, and people are finding themselves desperate for any kind of hope. The deportation ideas that Trump has brought to our attention may be found completely absurd, but have been done before under a loved president. The concept of keeping illegals out of our country and that one cannot simply take upon residency without permission is not insane.
