Building a border around yourself trying to shield yourself from illegal aliens who for the most part benefit the country and due their equal share should not be chastised and touted as that countrie's biggest problem. Rhetoric like that is very dangerous and adds to the division of a populace that should work together for the betterment of all, not just the few. As you all should know, I am writing about Donald Trump, the reason I chose to base my thread around him is because I feel his views are outlandish and incredibly self-serving. He is running for president because of his ego, and that ego will lead this country to a much far worse place than we perceive we are
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.
Adams uses his credibility as president to manipulate the public into thinking terrible things about Jefferson. Adams does a great job using his position, and the trust that comes with it, to evoke an emotional response from the public. That emotional response, or fear, will hopefully then causes the public to vote for Adams. Jefferson realizes what Adams is doing and decides to use this tactic himself. The two end up going back and forth until the
Getting rid of the popular vote would get rid of this idea that the peoples vote does actually impact the election. We get several voters who do really care about the election. We aren’t even close to the full population voting during the election. From this past election, people still don’t understand how Clinton won the popular vote, and lost the election, and then they think this is all unfair. But that is not how the founding fathers had planned for it, because if the majority always won, then the minority would always lose.
In “The Bernie Bomb” by Kimberley Strassel, critical, mocking tones emphasize Strassel’s feelings towards Bernie Sanders’ inability to become the President of the United States. Bernie Sanders gave quite a performance at the first Democratic debate of the year. Strassel shares her thoughts on the nature of his responses to important issues during the debate by concluding that his followers should regret making donations to his campaign seeing that he really is not in it to win. Her witty critiques indicate her strong feelings that donating to Sanders’ campaign in hopes that he will become President, is truly not worth the money. Strassel’s diction heightens the uncertainty and unprofessional manner behind Sanders’ attempt at trying to be elected as President, which leads his supporters to doubt their contribution to his campaign.
In Donald Trump’s political campaign he represents Sapir-Whorf hypothesis by the language he uses. Trump believes that if he uses his own language he will be able to gather a majority of votes, for example, by repeating the phrase “Make America Great Again” it will get the audience to think. In the article by Christopher M. Livaccari says that everyone should choose words carefully because “Words in different languages cover different ranges of meaning…” which refers to how people have different connotative meaning to one word. Trump also mentions negative words that make an impact on his presidency but if “Sapir-Whorf hypothesis teaches anything, it 's that words have the power to shape reality”. He also spreads his hypothesis through media
The effect of the hatred of Adams for his alleged “corrupt bargain” with Clay was a blockage of his proposals in Congress. Similarly, Donald Trump plans to give his companies to his children to run while he is President, but still has them on his transition team. Because of his past business dealings and intimidation tactics, people worry that they could use their relationship with the President to influence their own dealings positively. It is similar to
Though, it is considered rude for him to ask them about their political views, they don not hesitate to ask him about his thoughts on Obama, and the possibility that he could be the very first black president. Sedaris realizes that his opinion will speak for the rest of America in their eyes, thus when he tries to fight the stereotype and admits he is in fact rooting for Obama, they tell him that the rest of America are too racist to ever elect a black man. (Everyone was an expert and what they all knew was this: Americans are racist. P. 8 out of 10 and “Americans are afraid of anything different” P. 9 out of 10) though, the former is written with heavy sarcasm, the point with that sentence remains the same as the latter. On the other hand, it is not outrageously absurd to have such thoughts on Americans, since the racial segregation ended approximately 60 years ago and lingers subtly in some aspects of their society.
You can do anything,” said Donald Trump (NY Times). In the 2017 campaign, Trump had numerous occasions where he made rude or uncivil comments about a specific group or race of people. One of the comments he made objectifies women. Despite the rude comments and behaviors displayed Trump is the new President-Elect of the United States. In this case the comments were made in private, and may not have been uncivil in nature, but when you consider that it became public, now society will judge those comments, and clearly have judged them in this manner.
His language promising to “make America great again” spoke directly to the anxieties that white identity politics is centered around. So much so that the belief in white identity politics became an indicator in determining the likelihood of a person was voting for Trump. With that being said, white identity politics has been tied to prejudice. There was a strong correlation between prejudice and white identity politics. At least 60% that believe in the importance of white racial identity, believed that they saw discrimination against whites, and were worried that whites were losing jobs to minorities indicated that they would vote for Trump, as seen in the Washington
