They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people” (Aleb, 2016), is an unacceptable comment coming from a presidential hopeful. Although FDR had an outspoken personality, his opinion on politics was significantly more reserved than that of Donald trumps. This one reason why I believe FDR was a great leader as well as a great president. He was able to maintain a strong balance between saying a lot and saying too much.
Political knowledge is needed to be president and not everyone has the political knowledge that is needed. Being president involves an endless amount of work and not everyone can put in the amount of work it takes to be president. William Taft had the political knowledge and effort that it takes to be president, although that was not his dream. Taft fulfilled his wife’s dream by being president, but he was not happy while serving as president. While Taft served as president he made major accomplishments, but he was not truly happy until he became chief
President Obama is leaving office soon, and many people think there is not a lot of change he can do anymore because he is simply running out of time. President Obama made it clear that he was not going to leave office without trying to help the nation one last time. He decided to endorse Mrs. Clinton as the next president. There have been multiple times when he has spoken out and against Mr. Trump and his comments, and Mr. Trump in return has also made disgusting remarks against President Obama. Even though he spoke against one candidate, it did not mean he automatically endorsed Mrs. Clinton.
Some people may say that the ban stops terrorists from coming here, but the terror attacks in the U.S. decreased 39% since 9/11 even without the travel ban. Trump’s travel ban was shot down as unconstitutional but he has edited the travel ban and plans to add many more enemies of the U.S. to the travel ban list. Trump’s plans also include bringing torture back to the
Tasked with appointing a replacement for the deceased Justice Antonin Scalia, the President set about finding somebody who would represent his views and protect the interests of his administration in every decision. That person turned out to be Neil Gorsuch. President Trump’s decision came as a surprise to many political pundits given the fact that Gorsuch had previously labeled Trump’s criticism of the American judiciary system as “disheartening” and “demoralizing”. Still, Trump needed a big win to start his time in the White House off right and there could have been no bigger win at that time than pulling the Supreme Court out of chaos. On April 10th, 2017, Trump’s nomination of Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was approved, bringing a little-publicized end to the much-publicized year-long vacancy left by former Associate Justice Scalia.
The authors of the text also look at the interaction between race, region, and movement when looking at the evolution of American politics. As party elites and political activists have found a wider partisan divide in issues, the ordinary American still harbors the same general outlook on social and political issues as in the past. Despite or rather in spite of this, Americans are showing an increased lack of confidence in their government and elected officials. This lack of confidence over career politicians has fueled actions such as the election of Donald Trump who campaigned as a successful businessman apart from the ordinary politics of
America also has a great deal of domestic support. 53% of the public say that the US should send troops to Iraq or Syria to fight ISIS and 68% says that the country’s military response to ISIS so far has not been aggressive enough (Agiesta, 2015). Therefore, while this campaign has some pushback, it is nothing that cannot be easily
Today, snap judgements that are based on a person’s skin color are made, in the form of racism. In the past 70 years, major improvements have been made upon curving racism, but it is still a problem in the world. Some people have labeled the current president of the United States, President Trump, as a successful businessman, and they use this judgement to justify their faith in him. Yet others label him as a racist bigot, and use this label to justify their protests against his jurisdiction over the United States. It has been over a century since Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables, yet the problems that Hugo addresses still exist, albeit in a different form.
According to Aaron Blake’s article on The Washington Post, “Trump seems to have been torn between respect for Obama and a desire to accuse him…” The article states that back in the early 2000s, Trump has shown his respect many times towards the former U.S. president, but has also made wild claims about him. In January, 2008, Trump said, “I certainly think he is a very capable guy and a great speaker.” But it wasn’t until after President Trump was inaugurated, that he made even more outrageous accusations. I saw a tweet on President Trump’s twitter, and he claims that Obama wire tapped his phone, and said that it was something similar to the Nixon Watergate scandal. Throughout the years, the new U.S. president has shown his strange way of respect towards Obama, leaving many confused of what he thinks of
Hillary Clinton almost became the first female president if it wasn’t for the electoral college voting she would be our president, and that was big for this stereotype on women because it is showing we are open to having a women lead our country and if this was 15-20 years ago there was not even a women on the ballot. We are making progress slowly, but surely that we are changing, but we do still have this stereotype about women just because it has been passed down from generation to generation, but as this new generation starts getting older I believe this stereotype will be a thing of the past because the progress we our making is substantial push to change this, it is still going on. We need women to become a President of the United States, most powerful country in the world will change how women are looked at worldwide. I believe once we get our first females president which almost happened so I think it's going to be very soon this stereotype about women is going to be a thing in the past, but for now women are still stuck with this label as second to
