In a time where every word counts, Donald Trump delivers a speech that eases the fears of many. While Trump’s speech appears informal and elementary, he displays expertise in the art of rhetoric. He employs the use of pathos, ethos, impeccable diction and mindful arrangement to grab the attention of the audience.

Throughout the speech Bush uses many sources to that strengthen his credibility and appeals to ethos. To introduce the speech Bush started with an Anaphora “Our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack.” Bush uses the word our to make the country feel as one and be together. He also uses anaphora in the sixth paragraph, he said “I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened.” Bush does this to help unify the country during this hard time, he knew many ordinary people had been affected wanted to make sure that everybody knew who to pray for.
While re-watching some of Donald Trump’s speeches that he gives during his “Presidential campaign”, I noticed just how much he uses Aristotle’s three appeals. This method are both hurting and helping him at the same time. He uses pathos or the emotional appeal quite frequently. Donald has a specific target audience that he appeals to when he says that he is speaking to America. I feel as if his demographic is older white people who feel as if their country is no longer what it used to be.

Theodore Roosevelt uses logos throughout his speech. He uses it to show that he knows what he is doing and using his intelligence to convey that he is the right person to lead the United States. When he says, “Upon the success of our experiment much depends, not only as regards our own welfare, but as regards the welfare of mankind,” it makes us think and feel that he knows what he is talking about, reassuring why he will be a good president. His logos is also shown when he talks about the Republic of the days with Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Bringing this into the speech shows that he knows his history on the US and knows that they did great things for the country, showing that he will also do great things.
Ronald Reagan gave this speech on June 12, 1987, in Berlin, Germany. He was giving his speech during a time where the city of Berlin was split in two, between the USSR and the Western powers. These two sides had been very hostile to each other and war nearly broke out between the two. The wall that Reagan was referring to was a twelve foot wall with electric wires and guard towers to stop the East Germans from escaping to Western Europe. Freedom to leave USSR territory was not the only freedom that was limited by communism, in addition, many other aspects of the people’s lives were controlled by the government.
In 1980, at the age of 69, Ronald Reagan accepted the nomination to run as the Republican candidate for the office of the President of the United States. Before declaring himself as a republican, he used to hold a very liberal democrat point of view. But, after changing his beliefs, he spoke consistently on several major themes (Medhurst, 2016). Reagan also, having been an actor, been the President of the Screen Actors Guild, worked for multiple political campaigns, ran and served as the Governor of California, and ran for the President of the United States twice before his campaign in 1980, had plenty of practice with public speaking and rhetoric (Marez, 2016). He was a man who had won the hearts of many Americans and set himself up for a landslide victory in his campaign.

In his speech, President Ronald Reagan addresses the wall separating the East and West sides of Berlin, Germany. He emphasises the strain it puts on the country and how devastating the dividing of the city really is. The wall dividing the city makes contact between families on both sides unnecessarily difficult. Not to mention the message that the wall brings; the remnants of a tense cold war. Despite how strong the Berliners are, the wall puts too much strain on the city, the country, and the rest of the world.
