The 2016 Presidential Election was one of the craziest events in United States history. Obviously, Donald Trump won and it affected millions of people, whether it was in a good way or a bad way. In the article, “Donald Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Great”, by James Poulos, Trump was considered to be “great and logical” (Poulos). However, in the article, “Don’t Believe the Populism of Trump’s Inaugural Address. Our President is a Plutocrat”, by Ryan Cooper, Trumps is considered to be a terrible person, and he does not to deserve to be president.
Based on Trump’s immigration stance, Khan asked if he’d ever read the constitution and “gladly” offered him[Trump] a personal copy of it. In showcasing a contrast between the GOP Nominee and their family, Mr. Khan said Trump doesn’t know sacrifice. In response, Trump didn’t hold back in the slightest way. While acknowledging the heroic loss of their son, he tore into the Khans. He rebutted the words of Mr. Khan saying, “I’ve made lots of sacrifices” in reference to his “hard work” and business.
This then, makes possible for the voters to really know the intentions of the candidates. For instance, during the election of 2012 both political parties focused on negative ads exposing the flaws of their counterparts. Barack Obama’s campaign argued that the president had taken action to rescue the economy and turn it in the right direction, while Mitt Romney’s campaign argued that the recovery was not happening fast enough. The Obama campaign focused on making the people see Mitt Romney as multi-millionaire whose plans favored the rich over the middle class. One of the ads that better accomplished Obama’s campaign focus was “47 Percent,” where they show a video recording of Romney saying that he did not care about 47% of the population, who were predestined to vote for Obama.
He was also liked by many and won his reelection easily. In the text Assassinated by an Anarchist it says that McKinley was called “the most popular chief executive since Abraham Lincoln…” This shows that the people liked McKinley and that he did good things while in office because he was compared with the highly acclaimed President Abraham Lincoln. One of the great things he did is win the Spanish-American war of 1898. The president didn’t want to go to war
In conclusion,I believe that Andrew Jackson is not democratic. You may have read about how he was a very popular president and how he had 2 terms of presidency,how he is on our twenty dollar bill,etc, but no matter what good he did, his bad history will always have a black mark on his image. He acted more like a king than a president, he made his own rules and manipulated people to get what he wanted. In his whole lifetime, he had, obviously, done way more dictation than
The Nation was greatly changed by one President that will always be remembered: Richard Nixon. He was a respected President but made some bad decisions during his presidency. He is not the only President that made bad decisions. Every President did, but his decisions changed the way people view the next future ruler and the way people look at politics. Richard Nixon established connections with China and the Soviet Union, but he will always be known for his mistakes during the Vietnam War and the Watergate Scandal.
Now, I do not agree with most of Polk’s policies, or even his beliefs and values. As a pre-Civil War President, he was most likely a racist and prejudiced old man. However, I admire his tenacity and work ethic. He was able to pull congress together to see his plans through. In today’s government, America is stagnate,
According to Aaron Blake’s article on The Washington Post, “Trump seems to have been torn between respect for Obama and a desire to accuse him…” The article states that back in the early 2000s, Trump has shown his respect many times towards the former U.S. president, but has also made wild claims about him. In January, 2008, Trump said, “I certainly think he is a very capable guy and a great speaker.” But it wasn’t until after President Trump was inaugurated, that he made even more outrageous accusations. I saw a tweet on President Trump’s twitter, and he claims that Obama wire tapped his phone, and said that it was something similar to the Nixon Watergate scandal. Throughout the years, the new U.S. president has shown his strange way of respect towards Obama, leaving many confused of what he thinks of
Ike was loved by many as he served two terms in his presidency. Dwight also had a sense of humor, saying, “Any man who wants to be president is either an egomaniac or crazy.” (Dwight, brainyquote.com). In 1952, both parties tried to recruit him as president, because of his great impact and leadership at war. Ike decided that he would lead the charge in the Republican party. Dwight didn’t believe in coming in and changing everything the past democratic presidents had done, rather he expanded social security and other social welfare programs.
