When Donald Trump won the presidential election of 2016, it shook the world. A businessman and white supremacist with no political background was going to take over all the affairs of one of the most powerful countries of the world. Not only he had no experience in the field whatsoever, he was also involved in scandal after scandal in the very first few months of his presidency. "The First White President" is an article published in October 2017 by Ta-Nehisi Coates, a journalist for The Atlantic, which talks about the foundation of Donald Trump's presidency. He affirms that white supremacy was Trump's base and power even after involving in sexual misconducts and offensive behaviors.

The study from the Gallup researchers Jonathan Rothwell and Pablo Diego-Rosell found that "people living in areas with diminished economic opportunity were somewhat more likely to support Trump." But after the analysis of the election polls by the Edison Research, it was found that " Trump won whites making less than $50,000 by 20 points, whites making $50,000 to $99,999 by 28 points , and whites making $100,000 or more by 14 points ." The author also provides statistics to show Trump's dominance in every white demographic. "Trump won white women (+9) and white men (+31). He won white people with college degrees (+3) and white people without them (+37). He won whites ages 18-29 (+4), 30-44(+17), 45-64(+28), and 65 and older (+19) .Trump won whites in Midwestern Illinois (+11), whites in mid-Atlantic New Jersey (+12), and whites in the Sun Belt's New Mexico (+5)." These data shows that the election was influenced by race more than economic …show more content…
The events and statistical data of previous presidential campaign provides context to the time when Trump became involved in politics. As the white felt left out due to past presidency, he was able to win the support of people who had similar beliefs like him. Coates quotes Trump "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I would not lose any voters." This shows that even Trump knows the power he has with the support of his white voters. Even after publicly stating that his daughter is a "piece of ass", his voters continued supporting
White males made up 47% of the vote and of those voters 47% of them voted for Warren. This was one of the few groups that did not vote in her favor. Egan must focus on this 47% of males that voted democratically and attempt to sway their votes in his favor instead of their incumbent (CNN). Egan also wants to focus on the middle class males, men with income between 50k to 100k as they made up a large sum of the vote as well. Egan must focus on issues that these men have in common and that they need fixing.
While re-watching some of Donald Trump’s speeches that he gives during his “Presidential campaign”, I noticed just how much he uses Aristotle’s three appeals. This method are both hurting and helping him at the same time. He uses pathos or the emotional appeal quite frequently. Donald has a specific target audience that he appeals to when he says that he is speaking to America. I feel as if his demographic is older white people who feel as if their country is no longer what it used to be.
Donald Trump has gained his traction by not being of the traditional political mold i.e., experience in politics, political correctness, etc. etc. The favored appeal of Donald Trump is that he comes off as genuine, that he says whatever comes to mind.

Trump has also called Muslims terrorist and said they he would not allow them into our country. Many of Trumps followers viewed those remarks as justification for racism. They feel as though it is acceptable to harbor those feelings towards minorities and act upon them. There has been a large increase of hate crimes and hateful acts across American since Donald trump won the election. This has been verified by many news outlets including, but not limited to The Washington Post, The New Yorker, CNN, and Forbes.
Born in 1946, Donald Trump was elected president at the age of 70 in 2016. With his election came much hatred and separation between the republican and democratic parties. The separation is because Republicans loved his business strategies, but Democrats could not stand his personality. This election was the beginning of a constant fight between the two parties. Every chance one of the parties got a chance to attack the other party, they took it.
The homelessness, unemployment, violence, murder, drugs, public education, you name it. In Obama’s adopted home in Chicago a recent headline read: “120 shot in one week in Chicago, 25 dead – all-time record.” By Trump reaching out at the very least he will make Democrats fight for their votes. If Republicans could get one out of every four black votes, Clinton’s political tenure would be over.
White Working Class and 2016 Election On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, republican candidate Donald Trump beat democratic candidate Hillary Clinton by a landslide victory.

Is white Privilege real? I chose this article because when I got back from my mission I came home to a lot of politics. It has really interested me because when I left, politics were still an issue, but not to a large effect. When I got home it seemed like all hell broke loose and that’s all anyone was talking or posting about. So, I did some unbiased research myself not really listening to ones side or the other until I have read both stance points.

The subways were quiet, people were visibly bothered, and I found myself paying attention to my surroundings even more than usual. I remember looking at the people around me more than usual. I kept playing the statistic over and over in my head; 64% of white men, 53% of white women. The fact is that this man won because of white voters. Am I supposed to blame them?
”According to Huffington Post he refused to condemn the white supremacists who are campaigning for him. CONCLUSION:( Restate thesis and summarize the three body paragraphs) As you can see Donald Trump has been called out for his ridiculous statements, overconfidence, and prejudice beliefs.
