Having positive values can make a difference in today’s world just like it did in the movie “Freedom Writers”, if everybody unites as one. The Presidential election is a prime example of how our society needs positive influences to help stabilize our country. While it is often the case that the presidential candidates talk poorly about their opponents, this year’s election period was particularly cruel and nasty. The presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton used negative messages to divide the country as well as creating fear about a variety of racial issues and religious beliefs. Both candidates focused on the negative and did little to highlight their own agendas and plans if they became president.
There are many citizens that have the dream to become president. Although many people inspire to become president, they do not have the political knowledge to fulfill being president. The dream to become president is not easy to fulfill. Taft had the political knowledge of being president, although it was not his dream of being president. He ran for presidency to fulfill other people 's happiness, even though he was not happy.
Tasked with appointing a replacement for the deceased Justice Antonin Scalia, the President set about finding somebody who would represent his views and protect the interests of his administration in every decision. That person turned out to be Neil Gorsuch. President Trump’s decision came as a surprise to many political pundits given the fact that Gorsuch had previously labeled Trump’s criticism of the American judiciary system as “disheartening” and “demoralizing”. Still, Trump needed a big win to start his time in the White House off right and there could have been no bigger win at that time than pulling the Supreme Court out of chaos. On April 10th, 2017, Trump’s nomination of Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was approved, bringing a little-publicized end to the much-publicized year-long vacancy left by former Associate Justice Scalia.
The song “Dear Mr President” was composed by an American artist with an international fan base, Pink. In this song Pink speaks on behalf of America for the issues that have been left aside because they didn’t seem important to the former president, George W. Bush. George W. Bush was the 43rd president of the United States from 2001 to 2009. The purpose of this song was to confront the president and question the president’s morals and who he is as a person to see if he is proud of who he is and how he is running the country. In the song there are many issues that Pink is protesting within this song and example is the inadequacy of empathy towards the poor and the middle-class citizens.
The author suggests he did not leave Eleanor because it would “destroy his political career”. However, despite his selfish reasoning and personality, FDR is still supported throughout the novel. Also, as the novel comes to a close, Larsen brings up arguments that support Roosevelt, and counter-arguments that are against him. She writes that some remember him as the man who “put the nation back on its feet again” after the Great Depression, while others criticize the growth of government spending that occured when he was president due to all his agencies. However, the author’s conclusion supports FDR when she wrote, “Almost everyone would acknowledge his spirited and forceful leadership during World War II…” and closing statement of, “...he had put his own personal stamp and signature on the nation and the world, and neither would ever be the same”.
Donald Trump is the embodiment of his political party and conservative American in far more ways than some realize. His comments of last November regarding a future without the prospect of an African-American President, is probably appealing to millions on the Right. During a point counter point internet argument in 2008 the following was keyboarded into a messge board. "White people will never elected a nigger president!" The comment did not garner a response as it was clearly keyboarded by a seething racist who had revealed a paradigm that didn 't warrant continued interaction.
President Obama is leaving office soon, and many people think there is not a lot of change he can do anymore because he is simply running out of time. President Obama made it clear that he was not going to leave office without trying to help the nation one last time. He decided to endorse Mrs. Clinton as the next president. There have been multiple times when he has spoken out and against Mr. Trump and his comments, and Mr. Trump in return has also made disgusting remarks against President Obama. Even though he spoke against one candidate, it did not mean he automatically endorsed Mrs. Clinton.
However, these internet memes do not address the fact that Trump barely addressed the discrimination towards the LGBTQIA community before and during the election. Additionally, these memes do help further the ongoing debate between both conservatives and liberals who have a very clear line on who should use what restroom. Memes that address certain issues that are currently going on in politics, allow for many people to anonymously post facts or opinions about each candidate or political party. Trump’s actions, and the politicians that have been appointed to his cabinet, have proved that he does not care about the current issues going on. Many people of the LGBTQIA community were expecting President Trump to address the “bathroom debate” during his Address to Congress, but he did not bring it up at all.
Another obstacle faced would be the close relationship the president must maintain with congress, for example; the president is the commander in chief of the military, but congress has the power to declare war. However, historically presidents have initiated war without congress approval. This, either impressed the citizens or, negatively had an impact on the presidents administration. The president can also reject a bill, known as a veto. Once more, congress can override this veto with a two-thirds vote in each house.
I never follow the American politics and the few discussions that Donald Trump made, is easily to notice that his speech are very direct, at first (as a big part of the Americans) I thought that hi was racist, but knowing of his past, hi is a business man, and his discussion must to be direct, not knowing of on how to formulate the proper fraise to the public, I really hope that my way of thinking is right, if not America and the world can look towards some dark ages. Not knowing if he means everything he says, I would talk about his plans of the future since now his the president. If he changes every thing he spoke about to the press, or if he has a new prospective, more importantly if he has racist point of views are true. I my years I wasn’t very social to people, but once I moved here not knowing any one, I started to become alone, once I started Kingsborough community college at the age of 20, not being accustomed to American life, I mainly work and going to school, I didn’t have time to socialize with the people that I meet, and now that the semester is over I’m quite sad that I wasn’t more dedicated in knowing my classmate, be more interested in the life’s of over
Numerous Americans would agree, 2015 was not a pleasant year in the United States. Although there have been strides in technology and civil rights, tensions rose in the Middle East and countless mass shootings occurred. As the 2016 election nears, a myriad of presidential candidates are promising a better future, but one, in particular, has caught the eye of the nation. The billionaire’s name is Donald Trump and he is the GOP’s front runner. Supporters believe in Trump’s campaign slogan that he will “Make America Great Again”, but there also those who have condemned him as well as his ideas.
A Translucent Cartoon In the article “Donald Trump is not the GOP 's biggest problem,” by David Horsey of Los Angeles Times, a visual aid is used, especially a cartoon, to comment on a statement made by a Republican presidential candidate namely Mr. Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida. He says that his fellow republican rival in the presidential election Donald J. Trump is not a good representative of the values characterizing their party. That cartoon is actually in contradiction with Jeb Bush 's statement because it shows how well Mr. Trump fits the different groups of Republicans such as the Birthers, the Tea Party, and others, but it does not consider the fact that not every simple person in those branches of the Republican Party or
(CNN)President-elect Donald Trump is "irritated" with top aide Kellyanne Conway 's public campaign against Mitt Romney 's potential nomination as Secretary of State, according to a source. The Trump source, who is familiar with the President-elect 's thinking, acknowledged the existence of an internal feud between Conway and chief of staff Reince Priebus, specifically about the choice between Romney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani for the nation 's top diplomatic position. The strange feud playing out in public between Romney and Giuliani has captured the attention of the nation in a way rarely seen after the election ends and the transition to the White House begins. Conway told CNN that she has spoken to Trump several times,
The two major political party candidates from the election of 1988 is George Bush and Michael Dukakis.The political positions that the candidate George Bush held before seeking presidency was being a vice president for President Ronald Reagan and for Dukakis he was a governor for Massachusetts.The more liberal candidate was Dukakis because he was a democrat and the more conservative was Bush because he was a republican. Dukakis was more challenged by people in his own party during the primary election because the democrats thought that their party would need to win it all also they refused renomination.Since the Democrats had lost the 1984 presidential election, the Democrats in 1985 and 1986 were happy to find a new way to win the presidency.That 's why they made the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) to help out on Dukakis’s election. The main issues in this campaign was abortion, recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in schools and prison furlough programs. Dukakis responded by saying that he was a "proud liberal".The Dukakis party tried to blame Bush for some of the scandals of the Reagan administration, such as Iran-Contra affair. Getting into that info made him almost the same level of power as Ronald Reagan.
In the years 1953 to 1963 two presidents were in office; Dwight Eisenhower assumed office in 1953 and left in 1961, he was succeed by John F Kennedy in 1961 who was then assassinated in Dallas in 1963. Both Presidents are credited with some major advancements in civil rights. One way the presidents didn’t do much for civil rights was that JFK did not want to interfere in the freedom rides. In 1961 CORE organised the Freedom Rides to challenge two Supreme Court rulings on interstate travel: Morgan Vs Virginia (1946) and Boynton Vs Virginia (1960) however they were met with a lot of white backlash from groups such as the KKK. President Kennedy was reluctant to get involved with the violence happening to the integrated group of Freedom Riders
