January 20th 2017 marked the day that president elect Donald Trump took his oath to office. Perhaps one of the most controversial electoral processes in the history of the United States’ presidency, the possible implications of Donald Trump’s leadership will most likely make this one for the history books. His speech seemed surprisingly reasonable, astonishingly efficient, and very impactful in comparison to what many were expecting from him, because of the negative and possible detrimental image he has created in the minds of many Americans. Regardless, Donald Trump delivered a strong, decisive speech using unifying diction, well directed symbolism and varied syntax. Trump’s primary goal was to identify himself more intricately with the
The first “[depends] on the character of the speaker,” the second depends on “the apparent proof conveyed by the words of the speech itself,” and lastly, the third “[puts] the audience into a certain frame of mind” (409). If one evaluates Bush’s speech based on these three modes, it becomes clear that sheer pathos undermines (or renders irrelevant) ethos and logos. Indeed, the success of Bush’s speech rests on capitalizing upon the anger and sadness of the American people in regards to the tragedy of the victims, thereby putting them in a vengeful mindset. Throughout his speech, Bush portrays the victims as “secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers. Moms and dads.
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.
President George W. Bush gave a speech titled “9/11 Address to the Nation,” where he reassures the nation of our country’s strength and even calls it the “brightest beacon for freedom.” This event was a suicide bombing of the World Trade Center where approximately 3,000 people were killed and nearly 6,000 more were injured. Although it was one of the worst attacks in American history, it unified the nation in more ways than one. This speech was made even more important after a tragedy like 9/11 because the nation had been frightened by these acts of terror and was in need of the inspiration of our most powerful leader: the commander-in-chief. Throughout this speech, Bush uses rhetorical devices such as pathos, analogy, epithet, and asyndeton
The thirty-second President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt in his speech, Pearl Harbor on December 8, 1941, defines the brutal attacks by the Japanese. Roosevelt's purpose is to persuade Americans to join in the war effort and come together as a country. He adopts a resentful, patriotic tone in order to thoroughly bring attention to the recent attack and the course of action this entails.
Throughout this article, President Donald Trump and the Republicans support the ban for the eastern Muslim refugees and non-United States citizens’ multiple visas. The author, Ismail Einashe, influences the reader to believe the ban is cruel and appeals to the readers’ emotions in the article, “For Dual Nationals, Trump’s Muslim Ban Is a Curse”. The statement, “The Trump ban has unfairly targeted people like me”, is a liberal bias because it makes you feel and believe the information before the writer states the evidence or support. Ismail comments that he was also born in Somalia and feels threatened by Trump’s ban. Ismail also includes his own personal bias, so this is another area where the writer has persuaded the reader to believe the
Before discussing the effects of Trump’s proposals, Dionne writes that “Trumpism is a very poor guide to what needs to be done” (Dionne). After this statement, Dionne lists those who will face the most neglect under Trump’s hand, and his displeasure is obvious. To further express his dismay, the author continuously emphasizes that the American public is “allowing a wildly and destructively inaccurate portrait” (Dionne) of discontent to divert their focus. As a result, non-Trump supporters are allowing their energy to be consumed by efforts to debase Trump rather than efforts to create a forum in support for the
On June 16, 2015, Donald Trump stepped on stage in Trump Tower in New York City and formally announced his plans to run for president. One of the largest focuses of his announcement speech centered on immigration, more specifically Mexican immigration. He made comments stating that Mexico is currently sending only sending the worst of its population such as rapist and drug dealers into the United States (Ye Hee Lee 2015). Trump is a recent example how the popular media influences the racial prejudice towards immigrants, however, this is not a recent development. Some of the first anti-immigrant sentiment is only a couple of centuries old.
The author uses logic and reasoning to build his argument that Trump’s campaign is no longer funny and it has gotten dangerous. He sets up the argument that many people have taken to Trump because he is basically an anti-politician. People like that he is not afraid to speak his mind and does not follow a traditional political party line. Taibbi tells us how the political right has been “flirting with dangerous ideas for a while now…but in the last few years the rhetoric has gotten particularly crazy”. By the author’s reasoning, this kind of rhetoric is not all in one ear and out the other.
”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. He doesn't really do anything to help poor, and lower income people. He is very selfish, and just only helps the upper class.
It 's not easy being a cult leader. Having the ability to sway and entire audience is a difficult task that most are unable accomplish. For a Demagogue however, this task is simple. Demagogues have the ability to persuade an audience by using stereotyping and taking away the voices and democracy of their followers. Through Patricia Roberts-Miller 's lens, we get an inside look on the strategies that demagogues use to persuade their audience.
Perhaps if people were more like Franklin D. Roosevelt, the world would be a more hopeful and peaceful place. Roosevelt was truly America’s
It violates both 1st and 14th amendment. The 1st amendment forbids the government from taking “favor” respecting one religion over another, and the 14th amendment directs citizenship rights and equal protection of the law.
