A presidency under Trump is an actual terrifying thought. It is still a “thought”. It’s something that is hard to understand, hard to believe, and hard to grasp. It is something that we should have seen coming, but also hoped that we were at a place in time when the impossible remains impossible. I think we all passed off Donald Trump as joke for the first few months of the election. At first it was exactly like it looked, a reality TV star running for president. As time went on, he gathered a following. A following that always existed but never had the platform to express their views freely. Soon enough we watched Trump rallies where people were being harassed, spat on, and called derogatory slurs; for no apparent reason, just because of who they were. This man had awakened a destructive group of people and had given them a voice. In a blink of an eye, it was Election Day. Trump was the Republican candidate. We got that far. Far enough to the point where this man was under consideration to be the leader of the free world. The feeling I had on that day was one I cannot put into words. My anxiety was at another level.

The subways were quiet, people were visibly bothered, and I found myself paying attention to my surroundings even more than usual. I remember looking at the people around me more than usual. I kept playing the statistic over and over in my head; 64% of white men, 53% of white women. The fact is that this man won because of white voters. Am I supposed to blame them? Am I supposed to have a preconceived notion of all white people? Why did they have to vote for Trump? If I am a white woman who is able to vote for Hillary, why can’t they? Did this man influence their minds, or were they always this bigoted and now finally allowed to have a voice? I wanted to ask them all why they were so against Latinos, Muslims, gay people, and

Whites are often seen more as individuals rather than members of a group, and there is an apparent absence of negative stereotypes against them. This disparity grants White people a unique advantage when it comes to achieving success in society. It is important to note that most White individuals today do not overtly hold racist views. However, many still possess stereotypical views of people of color, which can lead to discrimination in various aspects of life such as employment or housing. This discrimination is further exacerbated by factors such as the profit-centric structure of the broadcast industry and the FCC's passive stance on the issue.
One thing that made a lot of people gravitate towards him was that many voters liked that he wasn’t another politician and his promise to “drain the swamp” which means that he is going to get rid of corruption in Washington D.C. Those were constant thing throughout the whole election, but towards the end he got hit with a big scandal. There was a sound recording from when he was in a bus heading to a TV show from many years ago where he talked about sexually assaulting women. He denied doing it saying that it was just “locker room talk”, but then many women came forward saying that they were victims of him sexually assaulting them. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign had a few scandals.

Every deed his does becomes magnified by the news lenses. Traditional news media is swamped by him but so is social media, and the internet in general. This is the first time in decades where one candidate dominated news media acting the way he does. Blitt drew one spot of Donald Trump as the big floating head from the “The Wizard of Oz”. In it Trump’s head floats from the smoke and steam, but we see a man in the background controlling the show.
Born in 1946, Donald Trump was elected president at the age of 70 in 2016. With his election came much hatred and separation between the republican and democratic parties. The separation is because Republicans loved his business strategies, but Democrats could not stand his personality. This election was the beginning of a constant fight between the two parties. Every chance one of the parties got a chance to attack the other party, they took it.
So the time has finally come that America has chosen its newest president. And they did so mainly with the "it's one or the other mindset" if anything, really. Since Donald. J. Trump has become the President Elect, no-one has really been happy.

The events and statistical data of previous presidential campaign provides context to the time when Trump became involved in politics. As the white felt left out due to past presidency, he was able to win the support of people who had similar beliefs like him.

I thought, no, 100% believed, that Clinton would win and that we'd have to start building nuclear bunkers in preparation for 2017 with You could call this year, 2016, the year of revolutions. Oh, and not your usual revolution mind you, with bloodshed and civil war, but with politics and democracy. The Right seems to be rebelling against 30 plus years of control by the left wing.
Recently as a country we have seen a growing population of white conservatives feeling disenfranchised. Because I came from these areas, I can understand why these people feeling this way better than many

On september 7 ,2036, Trump has officially been president, for what it seemed to be the longest six years of my life. He started to deport Mexicans back to Mexico even if they were not immigrants. As time went on I got more scared that Trump would send my family back to mexico. It was the first feeling I had as we watched someone we knew or someone down the street get taken everyday. It started to be a regular thing until I saw the government that I had once trusted beat a man who wouldn 't leave his daughter behind.
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.
