In “Trapped in Trump’s Brain” is an editorial written by Maureen Dowd, a democratic columnist. Recently, President Trump has been passing many laws that the public disagree upon such as the Ban Act. He also lack giving a good and efficient response in interviews. Many people see him having characteristics of a dictator. Her is that because Trump does not trust anyone who disagrees with him it leads to a political mess and shows his narcissistic side.
In his article, “Dude, Where’s My Policy?”, economist and columnist, Paul Krugman argues that the initial uproar and fear that many intellectual liberals felt immediately after Trump’s election should be abandoned on the basis of Trump’s lackluster domestic policy development. Krugman instead champions the idea that Trump will be an ineffective President. By minimizing the effect of Trump’s presidency on the long term political climate Krugman comforts an audience of his peers who fear the world that Trump’s presidency will create. Krugman begins his article with a comedic tone to express his frustration with Trump and establish camaraderie with his audience:“What Trump has done or tried to do over the past two years-wait it’s really only been two weeks?-is incredibly bad”(1). This statement also serves to introduce Krugman’s purpose.
The upcoming presidential elections focused the conversational spotlight upon the presidential candidates. Samuelson takes an aggressive stance against Trump where he hones in on the impossible “Trumpanomics,” pointing out the contradictions that “are so obvious that they raise questions about Trump’s understanding or motives.” Before getting deep into the critical article and Samuelson’s detailed explanations on Trump’s inconsistencies with his policies, readers receive knowledge on his economic plans. Included in this article is extra information prevalent to the subject and invalidation of Trump’s proposals making the flow of logic easy to follow without having prior knowledge which allows for a wider range of targeted audiences. A diverse
This presidential debate brings up many perspectives and conflict in which candidate would make a better president. Simply said, this presidential race, is like no other. In the article “If Necessary, I’ll Vote Trump Over Hillary,” that was published in February 24, 2016 by Nicole Russel, does not represent a good overview of the both candidates due to her bias opinions The Federalist Article, lacks details of Trump, but explores in depth of Hillary. Russel explains how “Clinton Has a Terrible Track Record” by breaking down the issues she faced as the Secretary of state. Furthermore, Russel explains how Hillary is proven to be a liar, and a example such as her “illegal” use of a personal email was brought up.
In his article “Only Trump Can Trump Trump” (2016), Thomas L. Friedman argues that Donald Trump is the only one who can “trump Trump” or ruin himself. Friedman supports his position by providing evidence on the mishaps of the G.O.P and using his personal experience as credible evidence; he also utilises data that he words into a sarcastic and incendiary tone which provokes anger and irritation towards Trump and the G.O.P from his readers. Friedman wishes to influence his audience to dislike Trump and see the G.O.P as people who are infantile, hypocritical and compulsive by his flagrant diction and his excessive usage of tone; his dislike of the Republicans’ ideas and actions is made clear through his incredibly critical and sarcastic tone, he continuously devalues
As these statistics serve as evidence, they help validate the logic behind Bruni’s wish to educate the reader on the reality of Trump and Cruz. In this reality, a significant number of voters approve of Cruz, despite members of his own party disapproving. Thus, Bruni uses evidence to show that most Republicans themselves appose Cruz, and then statistics to prove the frightening fact that this doesn’t matter to certain voters, while simultaneously appealing to ethos by establishing
Alexandrea Burke Mrs. Korey English 2 Advanced Honors 21 March 2023 Sharing an emotional story can have a huge impact on someone’s life. Jason Reynolds had that impact on his audience during his speech at Lesley University in 2018. In his breathtaking and notably crafted speech given to the graduating class of Lesley University, Jason Reynolds clearly articulates and emotionally persuades the audience through the use of symbolism and anecdotes. Jason Reynolds establishes himself as a powerful and memorable speaker by using symbolism to appeal to the audiences’ emotions. His statement, “The significance of being told over and over and over again to spread my wings and change the world, without ever addressing the fact that not everyone has
Joseph Epstein’s prejudices are fairly obvious in his article, “Trump and the Plutocrats Hubris.” His innate inevitable bias is reflected through his use of verbal irony, diction, and tone. He describes his childhood experiences with businesses and the notions of success in his conservative middle-class origins. He saw first hand the unspoken rules of economic prosperity in social environments, and applied them to the mindset of our President, Mr. Donald Trump, through literary devices.
The reverent POTUS rises above bickering of the elites and provides order in their policymaking. On the other hand, today’s development of the presidency, “plebiscitary politics” (Skowronek 1997, 52) is something furthest from what the framers would have wanted because the POTUS appeals directly to the public for help and support. All this is facilitated by “new tools of mass communication” (Skowronek 1997, 54), with President Trump’s use of Twitter as a powerful testament to this new age reality. On the whole, Skworonek tones down individual agency and casts a wider net in his takes on the presidency. His overarching approach has the ability to
President Donald Trump. Even to those who had voted for Trump this election, I doubt you ever expected to hear those words four years ago. Now added to the great list of men that lead this beautiful, that slots among Honest Abe, The American Cincinnatus, Old Hickory, and Father of the Constitution, is The Tumpster. Dana Milbank's mocking article “In which Trump discovers some guy named Frederick Douglass” Donald Trump is contrasted to the expectation of how leaders perform and act by the juxtaposition of the expectation, the allusion of similar incidents, and the situational irony of the thirteen days that he has been in office.
Democracy in the United States is reliant upon its citizen’s ability to act as an informed electorate and vote for leaders through a critical process of due diligence. In an election as momentous as the presidency, various influences can give voters a false representation of their political endorsements. A central role in this notion is the ability to subconsciously prime voter perspectives and impact election outcomes using various forms of rhetoric. Politicians employ both forensic (judicial) and political (deliberative) rhetoric to attack the credibility of their opponents based on past injustices and persuade voters to take specified action in the future.
So the time has finally come that America has chosen its newest president. And they did so mainly with the "it's one or the other mindset" if anything, really. Since Donald. J. Trump has become the President Elect, no-one has really been happy. Obviously, liberals aren't all that pleased with a man who opposes almost everything they vie for, but even conservatives are having second thoughts, or at the very least, hoping he doesn't really take most of the things that he said literally.
Throughout the Bush presidency, there were many rise and falls of his approval rating by the American public. The greatest rise and falls were due to the aftermath of the Al Qaeda terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and the fallout caused by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the book A Tragic Legacy,Glenn Greenwald illuminates a spotlight that focuses on the many falls of ex-president, George W. Bush. Greenwald, who is a former constitutional law attorney and is now a contributing writer at Salon, has been a regular contributor to The American Conservative. His views and analysis of the bush presidency in A Tragic Legacy are supported by his former experiences.
In my paper, I will analyse Donald Trump’s political activities before and after the election to get an objective viewpoint of America’s President. We’ll start off with the history of Trump, both personal and political, to see whether there was some sort of significant development over the years indicating a tendency towards ‘good or evil’. Next, we will take a look at what Donald Trump promised to do – the wall, lowering taxes and repealing Obamacare to name a few – and evaluate if he managed to keep his election pledges. This success rate is a major factor in definitively assessing Trump’s influence on America.
Introduction Hook: I never knew that one day, one idea could have such a big impact. That one thing could change the history, set up the rest of the country to follow suit with this specific topic, and things that need a change in general. Background: Over 50 years ago, on March 7, 1965, now known as bloody Sunday, segregation was still prevalent. At the time it was not allowed for blacks to vote at the time.
