Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and US President Donald Trump seem like twins in terms of political style. They appear to revel in their repeated breach of correct speech and behavioral codes, treating these as the hypocrisies of a detested political establishment. They have both been antagonistic toward the mainstream media, seeing them as complicit guardians of a corrupt system. In the pursuit of their pet programs, both have manifested an authoritarian intransigence darkly reminiscent of fascism (David 2017). Duterte presents himself as the crusader that goes against media and other political heads calling them out as corrupt people or the elites that are the enemy of the masses and that he is the righteous one to the people.
The short answer to this question is no. Donald Trump is anti-establishment and taps into the anger of many Americans, some of them may even identify as conservative. But he is not conservative. His populist, nationalist message seems to be refreshing. Not to mention he is attacking all of the people that deserve it: (for example) the liberal media, the establishment, and the president.
Because of all those factors, it was easy for Donald Trump to gain power in the GOP and destroy it for years to come. To conclude, Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP campaign field has surprised nearly everyone. He has been a channel for anger, and an annoyance to GOP leaders and millions of people around America. While other forces, like the media, have also contributed to his success, the main factor in his rise is a GOP that is in desperate need of reform to meet the needs, wants, and ambitions of a rapidly changing
The majority of Americans were not proud of what he had said. Another reason is Trump can 't control what he says. Being President, your words mean so much. If Trump can’t control what he says, he can create a diplomatic crisis or even start a war. Trump can run America into the ground with just his mouth.
Donald Trump’s favorability and popularity are growing as a GOP candidate for the 2016 presidential election. Over the last month Trump has given us messages on immigration, the economy, and Washington. His messages have taken him straight to first place among Republicans nationwide (Borger, 2015). Trump’s message on immigration certainly stirred up controversy, especially with his comments towards illegal immigrants and Hispanics. Sen. Marco Rubio, who is another GOP candidate, and of Hispanic descent, found Trump’s comments offensive, inaccurate, and divisive.
A prominent pollster once said, “When does the pursuit of victory exact to a higher price? When does dishonesty distort democracy?” Politicians, political parties or media that fail to condemn these tactics — as well as broadcasters that air these ads and the consultants that make them — are all complicit in the Koch’s immorality. We as American’s should not stand idly by while the Kochs and their Republican henchman trash this country with their false and mislead- ing
The upcoming presidential elections focused the conversational spotlight upon the presidential candidates. Samuelson takes an aggressive stance against Trump where he hones in on the impossible “Trumpanomics,” pointing out the contradictions that “are so obvious that they raise questions about Trump’s understanding or motives.” Before getting deep into the critical article and Samuelson’s detailed explanations on Trump’s inconsistencies with his policies, readers receive knowledge on his economic plans. Included in this article is extra information prevalent to the subject and invalidation of Trump’s proposals making the flow of logic easy to follow without having prior knowledge which allows for a wider range of targeted audiences. A diverse
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
Trump also pledged stern action against China for “ripping [America] off” these type of threats will worsen America’s relationship with its allies. Finally Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel of Germany said that "Donald Trump… [is] not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also to economic development.” These examples of many indicate that Trump’s reckless behaviour could create unwanted enemies for the United
The topic around immigration has been an ongoing controversy in many countries and especially in America. Based on the current election of Donald Trump as the president, views and opinions on immigration are drastically on the uprise and becoming a major debate for everyone. Although some critics argue of the negative impact immigrants bring to the country, others comment that immigrants actually bring values to the society and culture as a whole. In the context of today 's society in America, some people are viewing immigrants as a threat to their culture and thus demand their government to prohibit the entering of not only illegal immigrants but also legal immigrants, thus questioning to what extent a country should restrict or accept legal
