Some accused him of wanting to turn Greeley into a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. Others called him “traitor scum” and derisively asked, “Have you thought about running for mayor of your favorite country, Mexico?” (“Swift Justice”). There were threats of a recall petition and demands that Selders withdraw his reelection bid (“Residents”).
Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning. A president is supposed to be a authoritative figure whom stops racism instead of spreading it. However, the president has far lower power than imagined. It is vital that the state intervene in situations like so to prevent such racism by implementing new laws that correspond with the every growing power of social media and advertisements. President Trump is utterly disliked by a huge number of people worldwide, there has also been a petition sign by thirty thousand Irish people voting against his visit to
It will create acceptance towards sexist language. When this accepted attitude spreads over the country, sexism will occur. So, by electing Trump as president we will reverse the progress feminists have made. If the president is sexist and gets away with it, this creates the feeling that everybody can. Young boys will see Trump as a role model, and they might pick up on his attitude towards women.
So for those who are not yet sure about his sincerity, it only takes a not to deep analysis of his speeches to spot serious fallacies. The first fallacy can be evidenced when Trump attempts to justify why he considers appropriate to build a huge wall on the North American southern border. According to him, “Mexico is sending people that have lots of problems”, not “the good ones” these people bring drugs, crime, and the most shocking of his remarks: “they are rapists”. In this case, Trumps commits the fallacy of hasty generalization. The candidate to president is drawing conclusions about people from another country without giving any reasons to support his words.
Trump is one of the candidates running for the Republican Party bid for President of the United States. He wrote a three-page statement explaining why he believes that “the worst elements of Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government”. In this statement, he explains that many of the Mexicans that come to America are drug dealers, rapists, and other criminals. This is all coming from a man that is viewed by millions of people as a plausible candidate for President of the United States. There will come a time where people that supports Trump, because of his discriminatory view on race, will act on those beliefs violently and without discrimination.
According to him all of the crime, drug and rapists are because of the immigrants. He states that the illegal immigrants are hampering the nation on every standpoint. This statement has severely hurt the immigrants from who has already been the citizen of this United State. Many people think that Trump who is a businessman is not supposed to enter into the politic as he doesn’t have that kind of attitude to be the president of America. The opponent of the Donald trump believes that if the Trump win the election he will make this country just a joke instead of his speech of making a great
In my eyes it’s not an effective strategy to deport immigrants back to mexico. Profiling puts a large amount of pressure on Police officers who are told they need to do this to as part of their job. It also creates a lot of family breakdown with american citizens who are Hispanic, watch as their older illegal immigrants that brought them to the U.S, are being deported. How can we morally feel that this kind of practice is ok? “It was no accident that so many high school students protested the new law.
He even went on to say that the ‘BlackLivesMatters’ movement have instigated the shooting of the police officers in the recent past, while the condition of the Muslims born in America is about to get worse as well. He has been an outright racist and says that he despises people of colour working in the country. He might pass a racist legislation and incite aggression and violence. Women rights Donald Trump’s view on women right is extremely disturbing as well. It he is elected as the president then it would be major concern for many women as his views and opinion when it comes to women are a far cry than what is socially acceptable.
Actress Lena Dunham (2016) stated that Trump’s invective takes women back to a time when they “were meant to be beautiful and silent”. Beautiful, you might say about the distaff side in Hollywood, but on no account can you claim that they are silent. Celebrities have spoken up with unprecedented zeal and aired their views in potentially one of the most influential movements of all time. Although Donald Trump won indeed the elections and became the president-elect of the United States, the campaign was the target of harsh criticism, especially from celebrities mainly because of his racist, sexist and discriminating speeches. The American people have never been known for being hesitant or weak-kneed when it comes down to freedom and principles,
Baker makes trump seem ill minded in here and i completely agree with him. This is because throughout this whole column baker just uses quote after quote straight from trump's mouth, or should i say his twitter feed, about what he thinks of himself. One quote from trump that really got to me was that he was a “VERY successful businessman” and television star who won the presidency on his first try. “I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!” If baker was trying to point out that trump was not very intelligent in this article, which in my opinion that is what he is doing, he nailed it right on the head with just that quote. I say this because baker pointed out that trump thinks he makes a good and smart president just because he was the host of a reality television show eleven years
An article by Lucia Graves recalls numerous accounts of violence in which black protestors or immigration activists were punched, kicked, or attacked by other Trump supporters. In addition, Trump openly justified these aggressive acts against protesters as somewhat necessary by stating, "We 've had some violent people as protesters" (Graves). Trump has elicited a strong response from his supporters, propagating negative sentiments towards the created out-group of Muslims and Latinos. By dismissing or remaining in denial on the issue, he is unknowingly condoning the continuation of aggression and polarization among voters. Heedlessly promoting the overgeneralization of groups like Muslims and Mexicans serves as yet another obstacle in the way of a post-racial society.
The U.S. is currently combatting terrorists who seek to spread their radical beliefs in what is called the “War on Terror”. To help America combat these terrorists, recently elected president Donald Trump has issued a set of immigration restrictions, and while there have been many protest against these restrictions, the thing I find most shocking is the fact that the Japanese American community has not publicly stated their opposition against these restrictions. We, as a community, must realize that there are parallels found from these immigration restrictions to the internment camps the U.S. government forced our grandparents and great- grandparents into. In order to stop America from making the same mistake again, our Japanese American community has to step out of the shadows and show Americans who support these restrictions that this is wrong. The U.S. is supposed to represent the freedom and safe haven from fear of persecution, as this is what the first
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.
The fact is that Trump doesn’t have a grand plan and his ideas are typical conservative-American. He is playing to the American dream at a time when the citizens are beyond frustrated with the do-nothing politicians in office who are sweeping all of their problems under a floor rug. Both the economy and security has initially left our country, and people are finding themselves desperate for any kind of hope. The deportation ideas that Trump has brought to our attention may be found completely absurd, but have been done before under a loved president. The concept of keeping illegals out of our country and that one cannot simply take upon residency without permission is not insane.
