In this past election the American people witnessed the influence the media had on us. News and social media outlets were essential tools for candidates like Trump to use in order to gain recognition. The use of Twitter placed Donald Trump on the national platform because he would tweet out critical words about current events. Unafraid to say what he was thinking, he attracted many voters to agree with him. According to the article, “Trump Won Thanks To Social Media” published in The Hill by author Laeeq Khan, Donald Trump was able to “[master] Twitter by embracing the immediacy (right now), transparency (unvarnished expression), and risk (rather than caution).” Throughout his campaign, he was actively criticizing other presidential candidates most notably Hillary Clinton, on social media. His tweets attacked Clinton by calling her a …show more content…
Trump not only targeted Clinton, but also former President Barrack Obama claiming he was not an American, but rather Muslim. In Trumps tweet, he says “Why does Barack Obama 's ring have an arabic inscription? Who is this guy?” Trump’s inappropriate tweets garnered the interest of Americans who enjoyed his unapologetic language. Trumps influence transcended through social media and also through the news media. Whenever he was on live television, he was straightforward about his thoughts on Muslim and Mexican Immigrants. I clearly remember him stating that Mexicans are “bringing drugs. They 're bringing crime. They 're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people”(Trump, Trump’s Announcement). Trump created a bad image for the Mexican people and instigated a hatred of supporters. The media today has had the most influence on politics, which can be dangerous knowing that these media sites have millions of

Trump known for his strong opinions on foreign relations seems to favor another President’s policy. James Madison’s Non-Intercourse Act (1809) was put in place to lift the embargo on all other countries except London and France; however, the act did not help and just led to the coming War of 1812. This is not to say that Trump will lead the American country to war, but his hard will opinions on muslims and mexicans have led to heated debate. In modern times, war, drugs, and violence not only plague the nation but the world. Trump known for his comments on his plan “ to stop immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism,”notes CNN, is what many are calling a ban on muslims.
Introduction There is great contention regarding the impact of social media on political activism in Canada. While social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter offer users new opportunities to communicate, share, and disseminate memes and ideas, they also promote or facilitate the movement into streets for protests or other forms of activity. The arguments against social media generally revolve around its disposition towards remaining sedentary, behind the screen of a laptop or smart phone, writing short messages for the opposition to witness instead of actually making a physical presence in the real world. Alternatively, those who regularly engage in social media activism argue that they are raising awareness for their cause, which is theoretically true if one is to consider the sudden surge in discussion about specific topics.
President Trump’s State of the Union address discusses many of the United State’s most disputed topics, such as immigration. Though the address possesses its supporters, it also contains critics. The Washington Examiner titles its headline, “Trump won on immigration... the media ignored it” by Eddie Scarry, a supporter of President Trump’s State of the Union address. This article first discusses how President Trump communicates a story of a family who lost their two daughters because an illegal immigrant murdered them.
As of late the feud between the media and President Trump has escalated, this has caused the general population to be forced to decide who is the instigator, Trump or the media? I believe that while the media does retaliate, this childish back and forth was fueled by Trump and someone in his position should not focus on a petty feud such as this. I believe that as president he must show a strong image and refrain from continuing to ridicule the media. Because of Trump’s constant twitter rants about the media and the overall popularity of the issue many articles have been written on both the pro-Trump and anti-Trump side. These articles use different rhetorical devices to convey their point and get the reader to agree with them.
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.
Trump the Racist Don’t worry, none of this is offensive, Trump says, because he “loves the Mexican people” and “the Latinos love Trump.” Donald Trump’s relationship with his business partners has been in a spiraling down as he continues to refuse to apologize for his outrageous behavior. Trump has turned down every opportunity to take back his remarks regarding Mexican immigrants. Instead every time he talks about these issues they have only grown worse and more out of control. It is wise to say that Donald Trump is one of the most hated individuals by the Latino culture.
After all: “Trump has dabbled in everything from real estate to steak, casinos and beauty queens, and he serves as an executive for more than 500 companies” (Swanson). It is logical that some would support him because of his success in business. However, he has also had many failed business ventures. After a debate, it was reported: “At the time, we found four bankruptcies, but since then, we’ve found two more for a total of six. So Clinton was right that Trump bankrupted companies four times, and she could have offered a higher count as well” (Qui).
Donald banned Muslim. People doesn’t want people in their country because they think they’re dangerous. No matter what race we are there is always good and bad people on this world. We can change the world by working together and not being racist. You can’t judge people by how they look or their race we see people face but not their heart.

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.
In 2007, CNN stated a word “Youtube-ification of politics” prepared for the U.S. Presidential Primaries (Youtube and Policits). However, the impact of social media on politics can be either positive or negative. Social media can have a positive impact on politics when it is used properly. As people mentioned that social media is a free platform for sharing information, a tool of freedom and empowerment and a door of equality.
Each year numerous amount of people become a social media user. The eMarketer website estimated that by 2019 “there will be around 2.77 billion social media users around the globe, up from 2.46 billion in 2017” (1). A great deal of those users utilizes social media to communicate their opinion to other users; as a matter of fact, these users might change their perspective a certain person might have on a topic. Social media is a marketing tool, therefore people utilize those social media platforms to pursue, and even manipulate the public to think in a certain way; hence, why social media can influence the public opinion.
