Donald Trump has been sweeping the nation in his efforts to win the Republican presidential nomination. When the media trains its lens on Trump, the country appears to be “roiled with across-the-board discontent” (Dionne). His public interactions have split the country into those who categorize themselves as the “silent majority” and those who react with complete dismay toward his radical propositions. But are Trump supporters really the “silent majority”, or are the voices of Conservatives “being amplified beyond all reason” (Dionne)? In E.J. Dionne Jr.’s editorial titled “Don’t Fall for the Media Distortion about Trump”, the popularity of Trump is questioned and analyzed based on the media’s portrayal of his political race.
17 voters out of twenty told me that the media was more fair to Hillary Clinton. Majority of voters were disgusted by the media, but more importantly recognized that the media was unfair to Trump. This widespread view of the media is compared to bad weather by William G. Shade, Ballard C. Campbell, and Craig R. Coenen”THE ROLE OF THE PRESS AND MEDIA IN AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS ” The news media are more like the weather—an atmosphere that obstructs, restrains, or destroys without purpose, motive, intention, or plan—a power to be sure, but a random one that nothing can really control (least of all itself). What makes this election so amazing is that even know the media may of be unfair to trump in a “Hugeeee” way, it didn 't stop voters from picking him and his strong views on issues as their next president.
The amount of criticism coming from Trump about the leaders in America and his republican opponents is tremendous. By mentioning his opponents acts and believes he puts himself in a better positon in hopes to get himself elected as the final republican candidate. Donald Trump establishes his ethos by mentioning his earlier experiences and background. According to himself he’s worth as a presidential candidate because of his experience in the business, and that he’s not the typical “nice person” that people have seen in the past elections. He’s one of a kind.
Media has a powerful influence that can decide whether you like something or not. Media does have its flaws. Many people believe media to be an unbiased source but in many cases the only depict the bad sides of people. A good example of this could be the 2016 Presidential election Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Campaign finance laws regarding federal election subsidies, money towards national convention efforts, presidential nominee subsidies, and soft money expenditures are all contributing to the failure of any third party takeoff. The FECA Act of 1974 that “provides subsidies for major party candidates for presidency” based upon the amount of money they raise indirectly impact the ability of minor parties to keep up with such long standing two party competition (Herrnson, 3). Campaign finance laws seem to have driven competition between only the two major parties in the United States as their provisions make it difficult for minor parties to receive enough funds with such a small following, even if that following has large sums of money. Both major and minor parties can qualify for government political funding through acts such as FECA; however, the major parties have great advantage of minor parties when it comes to receiving large sums of money due to their already established base. Major parties also have an advantage over third parties because they automatically receive national convention subsidies; over $13.1 million went to each major party in 2000 to help fund them (Herrnson, 4).
A president is supposed to be a authoritative figure whom stops racism instead of spreading it. However, the president has far lower power than imagined. It is vital that the state intervene in situations like so to prevent such racism by implementing new laws that correspond with the every growing power of social media and advertisements. President Trump is utterly disliked by a huge number of people worldwide, there has also been a petition sign by thirty thousand Irish people voting against his visit to
For instance, tabloid newspapers tend to have false comments about politicians, whereas non-tabloid newspapers tend to have valid articles. With countless news channels, magazines and newspapers, it is quite difficult with what to believe in, but usually the newspaper or news channel that has the most misled stories is too good to be true. When candidates make speeches, other news stations that despise that candidate would always make negative comments. For example, during the presidential election of 2016, many news stations were biased about the campaign, and made many false comments about Donald
Fallacies in political speeches: Donald Trump announces he is running for president. Donald Trump’s one very distinct “ability” is making a vast amount of people react to what he says. Be it good or bad, this makes him gain more attention not only in the United States, but all over the world. At the end of the day, what really matters is if his statements have, in fact, any effect on people’s votes. So for those who are not yet sure about his sincerity, it only takes a not to deep analysis of his speeches to spot serious fallacies.
Rationale: Personally, I find Donald Trump irrational and unsuitable to become the next American President. Accordingly, I have been having a trouble understanding the popularity and support he has.

Thesis: Donald Trump if elected would make a terrible Republican candidate for president. Sub ¶- Authoritarianism If economic inequality is a problem, loss of traditional values is a fear, and the Hispanic vote is crucial, what explains the political rise of a twice-divorced, three times married, New York real estate man whose best-known phrase was, "You 're fired “and now makes offensive comments about Mexicans and immigrants?

Many people will say the electoral college hasn’t caused that many problems. When you look at the big picture, both Republicans and Democrats have been hurt by the outcomes of some elections, mainly Bush vs. Gore and Obama vs. Romney. Republicans and Democrats are on board to abolish the electoral college. Just because the electoral college is in the constitution doesn’t mean that it is a good thing. If you look at the constitution you see all of the things that amendments have changed.
The fact is that Trump doesn’t have a grand plan and his ideas are typical conservative-American. He is playing to the American dream at a time when the citizens are beyond frustrated with the do-nothing politicians in office who are sweeping all of their problems under a floor rug. Both the economy and security has initially left our country, and people are finding themselves desperate for any kind of hope. The deportation ideas that Trump has brought to our attention may be found completely absurd, but have been done before under a loved president. The concept of keeping illegals out of our country and that one cannot simply take upon residency without permission is not insane.

The politician Donald Trump is gaining more popularity by arguing the journalists and the democrat politicians about releasing immigrants into the United States without a permit or a visa.
