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. They’re just concerned with the policies he’s proposing and his vision for America. If this is the unabating trend of confrontation with Donald …show more content…
Khan has given Mr. Trump exactly what he needs, another “personal attack” story that will dominate the news cycle. When Mr. Khan and his wife took the stage last week during the Democratic Convention, the words of his speech and image of grieving parents who made the ultimate sacrifice froze the crowd. The moment produced raw emotion mixed with a personal politicized attack on Donald Trump. Mr. Khan attacked Trump on his proposed “Muslim ban” and questioned Trump’s respect for minorities. Based on Trump’s immigration stance, Khan asked if he’d ever read the constitution and “gladly” offered him[Trump] a personal copy of it. In showcasing a contrast between the GOP Nominee and their family, Mr. Khan said Trump doesn’t know sacrifice. In response, Trump didn’t hold back in the slightest way. While acknowledging the heroic loss of their son, he tore into the Khans. He rebutted the words of Mr. Khan saying, “I’ve made lots of sacrifices” in reference to his “hard work” and business. He went on to question why Mr. Khan’s wife just stood by her husband speechless. Mrs. Khan has replied via blog post saying, “Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my

In his article, “Dude, Where’s My Policy?”, economist and columnist, Paul Krugman argues that the initial uproar and fear that many intellectual liberals felt immediately after Trump’s election should be abandoned on the basis of Trump’s lackluster domestic policy development. Krugman instead champions the idea that Trump will be an ineffective President. By minimizing the effect of Trump’s presidency on the long term political climate Krugman comforts an audience of his peers who fear the world that Trump’s presidency will create. Krugman begins his article with a comedic tone to express his frustration with Trump and establish camaraderie with his audience:“What Trump has done or tried to do over the past two years-wait it’s really only been two weeks?-is incredibly bad”(1). This statement also serves to introduce Krugman’s purpose.
A few days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, his former press secretary, Sean Spicer, claimed that the crowd at his inauguration was “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period”, which was quickly debunked (Reilly). Days later, Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s spokeswoman, called the misinformation “alternative facts” (Macintyre). The inauguration misinformation is not the only instance of Donald Trump’s manipulation of language. According to PolitiFact, a Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking website, 59 percent of Donald Trump’s formal statements have been mostly false, false, or “pants on fire” blatant lies (“Donald”). This fact, whether or not people are consciously aware of it, is perhaps why the Trump administration has been so frequently compared to
Some speeches really make a difference to Americans. Both Bill Clinton and Robert F. Kennedy have speeches that send powerful messages to their audiences. The speech, “A Eulogy For Martin Luther King, Jr.” by Robert F. Kennedy, was a news breaking event and eulogy for the death of Martin Luther King, given to African Americans and all Americans. Bill Clinton’s “Oklahoma Bombing Memorial Address” was given as a memorial speech to the families of the Oklahoma bombing victims and to all Americans. Both were somber and mournful in tone.
He thinks Trump is a man who thinks highly of himself simply because of his financial success, however, that does not give him justification to govern America. Epstein’s tone is further evident by his sarcastic comments like, “In business, the paramount common interests is obvious: money, profit all-around. In politics, it turns out, much more is usually entailed,” and “The guy’s [Trump] a multi billionaire, cleaned up in real estate, so why shouldn’t he know about the health care, immigration, life in the inner cities? Of if he doesn’t know, no reason why with a bit of quick study he can’t find out enough to put everything in order.”
Trump uses his stereotypical description of immigrants as a scapegoat for the nation’s drug and crime problems, and the audience is easily wooed. Trump describes the immigrants as “they” and the audience as “you”. This along with his descriptions creates a clear cut distinction between the citizens and immigrants, creating a fear of the unknown. He then goes on to say, “ we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening” (“Full Text: Donald Trump Announces a Presidential Bid."). This statement further instills fear into the audience as they now have a feeling of helplessness in their own country.

Trump states, “I want surveillance of these people, I want surveillance if we have to and I don 't care” (“Trump: Islam Hates Us”). When Trump uses the statement “I don 't care”, it shows how thoughtless he is towards the moral beliefs of Muslims. Demagoguery calls for Trump’s solutions to be the only right ones, because he thinks of himself as the only capable of making America great again. Trumps uses simplification in order resolve radical terrorism by temporarily banning muslims and keeping surveillance

Overall, the piece is effective at making Trump look like a poor presidential candidate.
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. Obviously, liberals aren't all that pleased with a man who opposes almost everything they vie for, but even conservatives are having second thoughts, or at the very least, hoping he doesn't really take most of the things that he said literally.
The AP “Gov.” class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is familiar with the debate; before they were even born, the big money - gun debate had already been in full swing. Discussions leading to debates on the local, county, state and federal level about gun control, highlighting the influence wrought by big money had many voices, but little impact on either issue. One voice can engage the public and bring forth change; that voice is Emma Gonzalez. On a day reserved for flowers, candy, sentiments of love and affection, the actions of one person changed lives and the day forever; from those actions were born a resolve and a voice.
