I. Introduction Donald Trump: American Hero or Villain? For many Americans, Trump is seen as the long-awaited saviour of the nation. Others see him as the man to start World War III. 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. Lastly, using three major topics, we’ll gage how the President handled new events in the country, regarding the measures he took to counteract threats and his public statements which indicate if things important to the public are also important to Trump. The tense situation in Puerto Rico is an example of an unexpected catastrophe that required him to take action and can be used to judge the President’s willingness to help. Good and bad, heroic and villainous – those are rather subjective concepts, but in this paper, they are measured by looking at the eventual outcome for the United States altogether as well as individuals affected by certain events. It will be interesting to see

The authors of the text also look at the interaction between race, region, and movement when looking at the evolution of American politics. As party elites and political activists have found a wider partisan divide in issues, the ordinary American still harbors the same general outlook on social and political issues as in the past. Despite or rather in spite of this, Americans are showing an increased lack of confidence in their government and elected officials. This lack of confidence over career politicians has fueled actions such as the election of Donald Trump who campaigned as a successful businessman apart from the ordinary politics of
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

Before discussing the effects of Trump’s proposals, Dionne writes that “Trumpism is a very poor guide to what needs to be done” (Dionne). After this statement, Dionne lists those who will face the most neglect under Trump’s hand, and his displeasure is obvious. To further express his dismay, the author continuously emphasizes that the American public is “allowing a wildly and destructively inaccurate portrait” (Dionne) of discontent to divert their focus. As a result, non-Trump supporters are allowing their energy to be consumed by efforts to debase Trump rather than efforts to create a forum in support for the
On September 11, 2001 changed America forever. Two planes crashed into the Twin Towers killing thousands of people.

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.
Both “Donald Trump’s Sad, Lonely Life” by David Brooks and “The Art Of the Comeback: Donald Trump’ Debate W Propels Him Toward White House” by Matthew Boyle highlight the very intense presidential debates going on and illustrate how divided this country is. This election season has been one like no other so far with Donald Trump surprisingly winning the republican nominee even though he lacks much needed experience; versus Hillary Clinton whom most people expected to be the Democratic nominee and also has previous experience as the secretary of state. Both of these sources contain great favoritism and also contain a different purpose. This can be shown by the way that they describe the debate and how it reflects the media’s biased role by constantly presenting propaganda. Both of these articles are clearly biased and should not be used to decide on who to vote for; this is shown through their uses of rhetorical strategies such as tone, diction and audience.

On what was expected to be another day for every American became a burning memory in both Americans and America’s history. September 11, 2001 was the day where fear shook America into recklessly declaring war on terror against Iraq. At 8:46 am, the North Tower of the World Trade Center is interrupted by the American Airline Flight 11 by Mohammed Atta and the hijackers (History); seventeen long minutes later, the South Tower of the World Trade Center is also interrupted by the United Airlines Flight 175 by the other hijackers (History).

Ever since Donald Trump won the Republican Party nomination many popular conservative media figures and politicians have refused to endorse him some even saying they would vote for Hilary Clinton,the Democratic Party nomine, over Trump. Many speculate that it 's because of Trumps draconian immigration plan that includes building a wall and deporting 11 million people, or his infamous unconstitutional muslim ban,his multiple affairs and demacherous lifestyle, or the numerous offensive things he 's said and towards women and minorities.

Trump is a recent example how the popular media influences the racial prejudice towards immigrants, however, this is not a recent development. Some of the first anti-immigrant sentiment is only a couple of centuries old.
