Many will argue that the perfect president for America is Donald Trump. What most people are not aware of is that Donald Trump is a very blunt and explicit man. In numerous cases, that is a very dangerous and risky thing for him to do. In this year’s presidential election, Donald Trump is running up against Hillary Clinton and his idea of a perfect country is publicized in a video ad. In today's generation, videos have a strong influence on the decisions that are made.

It starts off with a disabled man sitting on a wheelchair watching Donald Trump on television waving his hands around and stuttering to mock a disabled news reporter. The man in the wheelchair is one of several people that are not able to do what an average person can. The commercial does this to bring attention to how insensitive Donald Trump is against the disabled people who can’t control their actions. The next scene in the ad is a woman that is getting ready for work but before she leaves, she listens to Donald Trump on television saying, “Putting a wife to work can be a very dangerous thing.” The woman is in disgust when she hears him say that. The video does this to indicate how anti-feminist Donald Trump is.

If the video was in black and white it would reflect on a more older time period and wouldn’t have much of an effect. At the end of the ad, it said, “Donald Trump. Unfit To Be President.” The word “Donald Trump” was smaller and not bolded while “Unfit to be president” was bigger and bolded. The use of the font helped persuade the audience that Donald Trump should not be president. It is bolded to cause more of an effect and point out the issue and the purpose of the commercial.
In conclusion, there are many videos or commercials that show the positive side of Donald Trump but there are also many that show the negative side to Donald Trump. The 2016 presidential election is in the hands of the people that vote. If Donald Trump becomes president, several people will look back at this video and remember him as a man that mocked a disabled
