The 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, definitely isn’t seen as a normal or establishment president. Throughout his election process and almost a year into his term, Trump has proven he is one of the more unique presidents in American history. Because of this uniqueness, he is typically highly criticize. Though, this criticism clouds some of the reality. In fact, in his first year, a lot of his presidential accomplishments are comparable to previous modern day presidents. Therefore, through general norms and patterns to evaluate a president, Trump has shown he is extremely unique, but also fits in with the presidential normalcy.
If you look at it from another point of view, you could say that he is not an ordinary politician. Yes, Donald Trump is not ordinarily what you would expect from a candidate. Which is a good thing, he expresses himself, even when it is unnecessary, rude, or selfish. He is willing to negotiate because he believes what he feels is right. So with that being said you can predict that he wont give up on his goal, his dream, or America even if his goals are unreasonable. Despite the fact that he is probably one of the most hated men in the United States, he does not let that stop him. So no he might not make the best president, but he will not make the
Donald Trump could not meet the same political expectations that presidents before him had. Americans have elected experienced politicians from the beginning, and they have watched the world progressively get worse every election. The people of the United States were tired of being let down by lying politicians that had promised the moon and stars but couldn’t deliver. In an article written by A.J. Delgado it states, “But the American public has reached a tipping point- we’d rather gouge out our eyes than select another career politician or Washington insider.” This quote is one that I couldn’t agree with more. Americans finally decided for themselves that enough is enough, and we deserve a change in this
He talks about how America is easily manipulated by images. They cannot differentiate between lies in the truth. Many people in America are illiterate or barely literate. They could read somewhere around a 6th grade level. This affects them when they have to vote since they do not make decisions off facts. Moreover, politicians are very aware of that. Their campaigns are made so they could get emotions out of the audience rather than go based off facts. “We prefer happy illusions. And it works because so much of the American electorate, including those who should know better, blindly cast ballots for slogans, smiles, the cheerful family tableaux, narratives and the perceived sincerity and the attractiveness of candidates. We confuse how we feel with knowledge” (Hedges). Politicians use the slogan such as “yes we can” and they would tell stories so we can sympathize in voting for them. They make fake that they will take care of all of your problems as healthcare, schooling, taxes and a nation united. Yet, when the candidate wins, they forget about promise that they made in the campaigns. Matt Taibbi’s article “How America Made Donald Trump Unstoppable” stated, “Like the actual circus, this is a roving business. Cash flows to campaigns from people and donors; campaigns buy ads; ads pay for journalists; journalists assess candidates…Nine out of 10 times in America, the candidate who raises the most money wins. And those candidates then owe the most favors” (Taibbi). This quote shows it does not matter if people vote or not, their votes are not a key factor in the campaigns it is the donors. When the campaigns are over, the illiterate have no voice once again. Politics is not about the ideas about the ideas
Liberal leaning New York Times (NYT) columnist Charles M. Blow, in his op-ed, "No, Trump, We Can’t Just Get Along", recounts Trumps tirade of controversial, racist and bigoted proclamations which dominated the 2016 presidential campaign season. His column ranked 21 out of 100 of NYT’s most-read articles in 2016 (New York Times). Blow's purpose is to give his mostly liberal audience permission to reject President-elect Trump’s dismissive attitude about his record and additionally, to convey that message of rejection to his colleagues in the media who appear complacent about holding Trump accountable. He adopts an angry chastising tone to establish himself as an authority and to appeal to similar feelings of his readers.
What makes all of America concerned about President Trump. The relationship between President Trump and many citizens is shaky. This makes Leonhardt question why President Trump helps with his campaign when those people had a limited role in his success. Leonhardt questioned, "Do you remember Paul Manafort, the chairman of Trump's Champaign, who ran the crucial delegate-counting operation?” Leonhardt did not ask this question on accident. Leonhardt purposefully asked the question to answer it. The question interacts with his audience, which in effect guides one reading his editorial in the direction he wants one to think about President Trump. Leonhardt wanted to emphasize how Trump is a hypocrite. There is no way that Trump won his election by himself without much help, establishing an irritated angry tone. Leonhardt also adds a rhetorical questions by Adam Schiff in which Schiff asks, "Is it possible that all of these events and reports are completely unrelated, and nothing more than an entirely unhappy coincidence?" The rhetorical question means is that can the suspicious ties and encounters between Trump and Putin seriously be a fluke? Maybe; but nonetheless, Leonhardt incorporates this rhetorical question into his editorial even though he did not say it because it is not a coincidence. If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and smells like a duck, then that mysterious animal is a duck. The rhetorical question has an implied answer of maybe; however, the purpose of that rhetorical question is to further guide one reading his editorial in the direction Leonhardt wants his audience to think. Leonhardt does not trust President Trump and he wants everyone to understand why. President Trump is playing the hide and seek game, but it is not the same game children play. It is the game every lying president has
In the article, “Trump’s Foreign Policy: The Conservatives’ Report Card,” Bret Stephens effectively builds an argument to persuade his audience that conservatives should be unhappy with Donald Trump’s foreign policy. Stephens effectively employs sound logic, specific evidence, and impactful language and literary devices to establish a legitimate argument.
In Bj Gallagher’s article “Donald Trump Is the Epitome of Everything the World Detests -- And Admires -- About America”(Sep.2, 2015), She Implies the positive and negative attributes in Donald Trump, and whether you should vote for him or not. Gallagher first demonstrates by showing the negatives of Donald Trump and his “arrogance” in an article written by Paul Thomas; Gallagher then argued the positive, admirable side of him by comparing his life to one we would all like to live, and to conclude she suggests that Trump is a “fresh breath of air” for millions of Americans by demonstrate that he is unique compared to past presidential leaders. Her purpose is to surpass his brash ego in order to to show he is worth putting your trust in.
To the point where we take him at his word understanding that Trump is a negotiator whose positions are often purposefully deceptive, what he advocates is a rejection of our Madisonian inheritance and an embrace of Barack Obama’s authoritarianism. But conservatives have far more to learn from his campaign than many might like to admit. The Trump voter is moderate, disaffected, with patriotic instincts. He feels disconnected from the GOP and other broken public institutions, left behind by a national political elite that no longer believes he matters. Trump doesn’t go nearly as far as Nixon. Yet in an era
Maureen Dowd asserts that less in a year into the Trump administration, he has left America disappointed by his blunders. She identifies his unwise decisions and poor judgment calls such as selecting unqualified cabinet leaders, the healthcare bill that worsened the issue rather than fix it, and his broken promise of bringing his business acumen to get D.C. working again. She iterates her disillusionment with Trump’s lackluster performance in order to leave no doubt that he is not the best representative of the United States of America. Dowd directs her letter towards Trump but she desperately pleads with the Americans who are on the fence or defensive of Trump’s suitability for the presidential office to realize his actions are not acceptable.
This article, coming from a relatively liberal news source, is mildly slanted. The audience of the article would be those who are liberal as it informs the reader of what the people were like that influenced Trump in his decisions. Concerning Trump, liberals tend to care more about who takes a part in his decisions and actions and this is more fitted to their needs.
Trump speaks his mind and he scares people, Donald can be a good president because his success can help our country grow, he plans to change this country for the better. You see him everywhere, you hear his name all the time. He is a wealthy businessman who has decided to run for president. Trump has 7.7 million twitter followers and one of the most known people in the country.
Donald Trump is not doing good as president. Some may still believe he is doing good for our country, but the facts will change their opinion. This argument can be proved based on the facts that are in the news everyday. The news shows articles about him firing multiple people in the white house, his insensitive attitude to important things happening in our country, and him degrading women. People are not happy with Donald Trump’s presidency, and the hatred for Trump continues to grow by his actions.
Presidential elections are an important aspect of U.S. history. This year is probably one of the more interesting ones since Donald Trump, an entertainer, is running for president even though he has no experience with politics. His campaign is widely criticized but he still holds a major lead from 30-40% depending on the state. Donald Trump should not be the President of United States at all, his views are bigoted, sexist and racist. Our president should not feel that he is superior to others and constantly degrade others for their race, religion, gender, etc. Not only are his views disgraceful but he has no past experience with politics,
Through the ages, America has been a very influential country therefore a great president is needed in order to continue its legacy. The United States of America has had many great presidents that came and go. From the founding father, George Washington to the wise president, Barack Obama. Many of these presidents had good reasons as to why they want this challenging job, whether it was their true virtue of being a man or having the support of the whole nation. But this year, the nation faces a difficult decision which is whether or not Donald Trump is suitable to be the leader of America. However, my opinion states that he is not suitable for president because of the following reasons, he has a horrible personality, he is bad in business and
