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.
Why Donald Trump is Unfit to be President The 2016 presidential election results were shocking to many. Donald Trump, the newly elected president, had a surprising victory that has left many fearful for the future. He made many troubling promises during his campaign (building a wall, for example) that could be detrimental to the United States and other countries. Trump also verbally attacked and insulted other candidates and politicians during his campaign. Donald Trump is unfit to be president, because he has no political experience, frequently makes inappropriate comments about others, and often ignores proven facts in order to make his arguments.
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. 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.
January 20th 2017 marked the day that president elect Donald Trump took his oath to office. Perhaps one of the most controversial electoral processes in the history of the United States’ presidency, the possible implications of Donald Trump’s leadership will most likely make this one for the history books. His speech seemed surprisingly reasonable, astonishingly efficient, and very impactful in comparison to what many were expecting from him, because of the negative and possible detrimental image he has created in the minds of many Americans. Regardless, Donald Trump delivered a strong, decisive speech using unifying diction, well directed symbolism and varied syntax. Trump’s primary goal was to identify himself more intricately with the
An American society sick and tired of political correctness, the vilification of manliness, countless degradations of the American culture and an insulting replacement of American values with foreign practices have catapulted Trump into the stratosphere. His strategy is simple. He has cast aside the careful and politically correct considerations of past and present candidates while attacking liberal agendas with accuracy and zest. The level of desperation for a candidate who is willing to face down the bias of media reporting, vicious attacks from the left and the failed promises of a party that is supposed to represent the conservative ideals of the majority, is both frightening and loud. Regrettably, the GOP has now joined the chorus of leftist assaults on
Bill O’Reily in his article “Trumps Silent Plurality” argues that President elect Donald Trump, despite wide opposition by the “Left Wing” media and experts has managed to win the presidential election as well as “rewriting the manual the manual for how to run a presidential campaign. O’Reily supports this claim by introducing the perspective of a trump supporter, giving reasons for why and how Trump was opposed, and finally he explains the importance of the elections results and how they will affect the future. One of the most salient strategies O’Reily employs in order to convey his argument is addressing the situation from a new perspective. From the onset of the article the reader is introduced to the mindset of a fairly informed American voter, who finds presidential candidate Donald Trump very
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
A modern example of a successful non conformist is President Donald J. Trump. Donald Trump is a very successful businessman who has seen over the years lots of corruption in the United States government. He points out the Obama Administration who racked up 19.947 trillion dollars in debt. When he announced he was running, the media took it as a joke and gave a huge bias towards Hillary Clinton also know as Crooked Hillary. Logical people noticed this and began to see how bad the current politicians were and wanted a person who was there for the people, and not for self benefit. Trump is a successful businessman and he can use those tactics to revive america from the damage done from eight years of Obama. He ended up winning the election by
By now, anyone who has paid attention to this presidential election cycle understands how Donald Trump behaves. When attacked or criticized, the GOP Presidential Nominee “counterpunches” with his own attacks and criticism which almost always come out harsher and unconventional. In the media, his responding rhetoric is largely portrayed and spun as the latest “new low” for his candidacy. To his adversaries, Trump’s response further proves their point he 's “temperamentally unfit” to be the President of the United States. For his supporters and the multitude of neutral independents, it matters less what Trump says when countering attacks.

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.
Nicholas Kristof’s “3 Peerless Republicans for President: Trump, Carson and Fiorina”, deems the leading candidates from the Grand Old Party unfit for presidency, and the public’s fixation with them a temporary affair. Multiple previous controversies being detailed, and the use notably bleak statistics help undermine the contenders while urging voters to look elsewhere. Kristof utilizes harsh diction with a simple, yet critical tone to denounce the trio, and further his own
Immigration is already a top issue in the 2016 presidential race, as it was in the previous election cycles. In 2012, harsh rhetoric dramatically affected the Republican Party’s appeal with Hispanic and Asian voters. In a result, the Republican lost over seventy percent of that vote in the presidential race. Looking toward the 2016 election, Trumph’s immigration rhetoric leaves Latino Population feeling disenfranchised. Of course, Trump is not the only Republican candidate who has been spouting anti-immigrant rhetoric, but he has been one of the most vocal and vitriolic.
The popular opinion is that illegal immigration is a terrible thing that hurts our economy because immigrants steal American jobs. Though this topic has been largely ignored for years, it’s been brought back into the public eye by the upcoming 2016 presidential elections. One presidential candidate, Donald Trump, is using immigration as a
