Another thing that Trump has done to affect us that live in the valley or in Texas, Donald Trump said that he would renegotiate or break the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). "We will either renegotiate it or we will break it," Trump said during an interview on 60 Minutes, following a question about how to keep American jobs from moving to Mexico. "Because, you know, every agreement has an end." NAFTA, which has been in effect since the mid-1990s, allows free trade between the United States, Canada and Mexico." “We need fair trade. Not free trade,” he said. "It’s got to be fair." Trump is not the only GOP candidate to suggest that the U.S. can and should break its international agreements in some circumstances. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina all have said they would renege on the Iran nuclear deal the Obama Administration struck earlier this year. This has a major effect on us because if the NAFTA brakes the agreement that has been since the 1990’s it would stop everyone that comes to here for a better job and just stay in Mexico with that the population would decrease and much more will happen.
Niccolo Machiavelli published his famous book “The Prince” in 1513, which is considered as a “handbook” for leaders. “The Prince” explains to the reader(s) how to acquire and maintain political authority. According to Machiavelli, an ideal leader, is a person who is attentive of the men around him, believes the end justifies the means, and destroys disloyalty by trickery or falsifying his purpose. Many leaders throughout history have showed one or many traits that Machiavelli stated in his work. Therefore, Donald Trump, would fall under the category of a Machiavellian leader.
After 27 months of negotiation, the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a trade agreement between the three north American countries: Canada, United States, and Mexico, was put into effect on January 1st 1994. NAFTA was developed to increase trade among the three north American countries while simultaneously promoting each countries’ economy growth. However, the United States faces a new government, and President Trump believes that NAFTA should be renegotiated to modernize the trade agreement instead of removing U.S participation. Some of these renegotiations, include: Trade in goods, Investment, Digital Trade, Cross-Border Data Flows, Government Procedure, etc, take into account the changes in the economy since 1994. This new
Trade is an important transfer that is vital to the abundance of a country. International trade allows countries to exchange their goods and can improve their economies. Many businesses within the United States dislike international imports because they reduce their business within the U.S. Some people believe business can be improved within the United States by imposing tariffs on imports. Tariffs are taxes on imported goods from other countries. Others who favor international trade believe it’s beneficial to establish trade agreements. One trade agreement is NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, which President George H.W. Bush signed on December 8th, 1993. The treaty included the countries Canada, Mexico, and the United States, and intertwined all of their economies. It eliminated most of the tariffs between the three countries and installed a supply chain, which is a network where different countries make specific parts of a product. Recently, President Trump has proposed that NAFTA be abolished, to promote products manufactured in the United States. This recent situation relates to the issue of the tariffs at the Philadelphia Convention. At the time of the convention, the Northern states’ economy was based on manufacturing, so they wanted to impose tariffs to promote American products. The South’s economy was agricultural based, and exported many goods to Great Britain. So Southerners feared that if tariffs were imposed on Britain’s goods, then Britain would do the same on products from the South, which would negatively affect the South’s economy. Trade can be very beneficial to a country, but states can have different opinions on whether tariffs are necessary, depending
The article entitled “The Tide That Sinks All Boats” by Chris Matthews discusses how feelings of protectionism and nationalism are making it difficult for President Obama to pass the Trans-pacific partnership (TPP) through Congress. The implication in this article is that the campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump during this presidential election stirred these feelings amongst Americans. Thus, members of Congress fear that passing the free trade agreement will make them a “traitor to the American Worker”. The article also mentions how free trade agreements often take the brunt of people’s fears regarding global trade and its impact on domestic job security referencing NAFTA (Matthews, 2016).
To begin I will be discussing Trump’s plan to stop NAFTA. Stopping NAFTA would be horrific for Canadian society. Canadian society acquires thousands of items from the U.S that can’t be produced in Canada for instance products like oranges, lemons, limes and mangos. During 2015 the United States imported $295.2 billion from Canada and exported $280.3 Billion to Canada. Without NAFTA all goods would have a tax costing Canada Millions of Dollars.
The North American Free Trade Agreement, commonly known as the NAFTA, is a trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico launched to enable North America to become more competitive in the global marketplace (Amadeo, 2011). The NAFTA is regarded as “one of the most successful trade agreements in history” for its impact on increases in agricultural trade and investment among the three contracting nations (North American Free Trade Agreement, 2011). Supporters and opponents of the NAFTA have argued the effects of the agreement on participating nations since its inception; yet, close examination proves that NAFTA has had a relatively positive impact on the economies of the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
First, he wants to “appoint the toughest and smallest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.(Fernandez 1). Mr. Trump wants to understand and see where the American workers’ jobs are going. Furthermore, he wants to note why millions of Americans don’t have jobs and who are taking them away. To do that he has to first renegotiate NAFTA or get rid of it (Fernandez 2).What is NAFTA and what mess it is creating? Basically, a trade agreement between the USA, Mexico and Canada formed by Bill Clinton, and it has let many Americans without jobs because most of them have gone to Mexico. That is the main reason Donald J. Trump hates this agreement and how it has destroyed the United States economy to bits and pieces. Additionally, what makes Trump fierce is that China has been stealing American trade secrets for many years. He clearly stated, “If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs consistent with Section 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962” (Fernandez 3). Clearly, this shows that Trump is serious about his job and doesn’t care if he is dealing with China. China has been stealing all our trade secrets and Barack Obama didn’t do anything about it. In brief, this clearly shows that our future President has the characteristics and personality of a true leader that is ready for this great battle.
Donald Trump is known for his eccentricity and unconventional business practices. He exhibits an unconventional leadership style. Donald Trump started early to develop his personal brand, this is exhibited by every piece of real estate Mr. Trump owns. Every casino, building or golf course has his name on it. He is eccentric, powerful, but yet he makes very smart business decisions. He is also a risk taker. All these business skills have made him a very well recognized business leader, and one of the nations most known billionaires. Donald trump has appeared in many magazines, has written a couple of books, and even gotten his own show on NBC called “The Apprentice”. But what makes Donald Trump successful in almost every endeavor he takes on? Was he a born leader or did he just become a great leader? There are certain characteristics common in all leaders. Some of those are values, skills, and cognitive abilities. Mr. Trump exhibits all of these traits. If this is what has made him as successful as he is, why are certain leaders not able to achieve his type of success? Perhaps he has something extra that has propelled him above everybody else. Everything that he touches seems to turn to gold. Donald Trump’s leadership styles have made him rich, powerful, famous and known throughout the world. This paper will examine some of those leadership styles.
Students hid their faces and scurried off into the crevices of the halls when they saw him coming from the opposite side of campus. His obese physique similar to the Michelin Man gave students adequate time to find cover or risk being publicly humiliated. He brought with himself a grave sense of oppression. We called him “Big Smith” because of his limitless silhouette and bombastic temperament that could easily scare the toupee off of Donald Trump’s head.
The dynamics of leadership’s styles has changed throughout the century because the dynamics of leaders have changed. Many researchers have conceptualized the term leadership to make it simpler to understand, however it can be quite complicated because there are some many levels and components that make up a great leader in theory. There are no equations to explain how to become the perfect leader or how to obtain the perfect leadership style. There are strategies one can use to develop as a leader and certain behaviors that can allow an individual to identify with a particular style of leadership. In fact when dealing with followers of any sort, this allows the public to get a glimpse and know when the individual in authority changes. It would give the public a better understanding of what to expect and what to desire in future leaders. With this in mind, the purpose of this analysis is to evaluate and summarize the leadership styles and management of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Since they both hold influence and they both developed a campaign to become the greatest leader of the United States of America this analysis will explore the different styles they possess to get a better idea of their leadership behaviors.
Trump is the very personification of the benefits and risks of transformational leadership. Trump is a quintessential example of a personality cult; his followers displayed excessive adoration for him and his plan to “make America great again”. Trump’s campaign demonstrates the benefits of transformational leadership. Though his arguably racist, misogynistic and inflammatory rhetoric was unsavoury to some, it mobilised a previously marginalised group of voters demonstrating how transformational leadership can inspire and invoke enthusiasm. Further, his remarkable success as a republican candidate in an increasingly liberal society demonstrates how his promises to take risks and make change generated high levels of following – a further strength
Leadership is a concept most people feel informed enough to discuss, but that few are truly educated sufficiently to comment on. Therefore, it is instructive to consider the leadership styles of people with very different approaches both to better understand the diversity underlying leadership, as well as to appreciate the effective and less effective strategies that underlie different leadership outcomes. For that reason, this essay will consider the styles of two leaders who are less visible in this highly contentious presidential election season: Jill Stein (the Green Party nominee) and Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate. The leadership styles of both are very different, yet they are aligned in the sense that both are outsider candidates struggling to gain momentum from a disaffected electorate. This essay begins with a theoretical discussion of leadership more generally and then turns to the two leaders as case studies, comparing and contrasting them and drawing conclusions about how they both work within the same public sphere and for putatively similar ends (i.e., gaining votes).
Leadership traits have been studied to determine what makes certain people great leaders. There is no right way to be a great leader, there are many ways to be a good leader however, studies have shown that all good leaders have similar characteristics. Good leaders are able to recognize problems and opportunities, they can develop a vison and an implementation plan to carry out their vison. They understand that teamwork and the right people are vital in obtaining their end goal. All of the above are specific traits that tie good leaders together. An interesting subject to look at when examining leadership styles is Donald Trump. Trump has always been known for his leadership style throughout the business industry. He has excelled through
Donald J. Trump is a perfect example of the American example of overcoming adversity, having set new standards of perfection in business. He is however an autocratic leader who concentrates decision-making, and exerts absolute power. He includes himself with the minutest of points of interest of his business, and restrictions contributions from a handpicked few in his team. (Brighthubpmcom, 2017)
