We were in economic distress so Reagan in order to bolster America’s confidence, came up with the slogan, “Let’s Make America Great America.”

President Roosevelt was prejudiced and had xenophobia against Americans of Japanese descent. President Trump is prejudiced against Americans of Hispanic and Muslim descent. If he remembered how that impacted America, he might not feel like building walls or preventing people from certain nations from entering the United States. As Senator John Kennedy wrote in his famous 1958 essay, “A nation of immigrants,” the current white-hot political debate over the contours of immigration reform has resulted in hateful rhetoric, profiling, stereotyping, and dehumanizing language about Hispanics, Muslims, and new immigrants to America.

Trump also using artifice to draw attention from one area he lacks to another that makes him look worthy of his presidential status. While everyone's intentions are different whilst using artifice, the results tend to be completely different. Even if the developments are good, artifice is still used by self-indulgent people, and that is why it is a terrible
The first rhetorical skill that Reagan uses is ethos. In the very first sentence he implies his status and authority by stating, “I'd planned to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union, but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans.” By showing us his power as President of the United States (the
Reagan used pronouns to include the audience throughout his speech.

Ronald Reagan is tactfully creating a sense of nationalism and unification in his audience, giving them a sense of pride. People want to preserve and remake America in this way, because believing that we have more freedom and more opportunities than others, makes us

He states exactly what has happened to the American economy without providing his opinion, effectively using logos. However, this does not help to support his claim that the country is able to escape the
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.

This success rate is a major factor in definitively assessing Trump’s influence on America.
