John F. Kennedy’s political philosophy was to bring peace and hope back for everyone. He also focused on foreign affairs and the importance of support to each other in other to conquer freedom. On the other hand, Donald Trump’s political philosophy is to move America forward. It is time for
During the 1920s, the United States was believed to have followed a foreign policy of isolationism that led to the Great Depression and World War II. However, this is a historical misconception known as the myth of isolationism because the U.S. followed a foreign policy in the 1920s called independent internationalism, which was a new idea to promote economic diplomacy through peaceful relations and non-military intervention. In Jeremi Suri’s Opt-Ed article, Trump is repeating the isolationism that led to the Great Depression and WWII, he argues that Donald Trump is following similar foreign policies of isolationism such as the increase on tariffs, restriction on immigration, and the dismembering of alliances, that mirror what occurred in
Trump uses the word “great” to push the idea of American exceptionalism. This provides a newly embraced sense of pride and patriotism that the audience had not felt since. Trump then uses the word “again” to suggest looking backward towards past eras for models that will move America forward to meet the unprecedented demographic, technological, climatological and ethical challenges faced with today. Although his campaign does not specify the details of what era was ‘great’, this appeals to older generations that be post WWII to either the early seventies or early eighties, when middle class incomes rose in lockstep with the wealthy- when one was proud to call themselves American. The word “again” also instills fear in the audience. It implies that America is currently not ‘great’, and changes need to be made. Trump then takes advantage of the nation’s fear. He positions himself as the nation’s hero - the only one who can secure borders, fight off terrorists, and install that ‘greatness’ once again. He boasts himself up as this hero, making his greatness America’s greatness as well. This slogan helps promote Trump as a savior figure, earning his popularity among a scared
America, along with its commitments, needs to “stand behind [its] word, and make sure [that the] word stands up” (Trump 138). This means that we need to take back control and never step back. Compromises should be kept to a minimum, and strong leaders need to take control in Washington (Trump 139). These leaders can be attracted by creating an exciting atmosphere for them to work in, as opposed to a failing government which only a bare minimum of Americans have the heart to try to fix (Trump 140). America needs to increase its power, successfully, military-wise (Trump 137) and financially. This will allow the country to start winning all the time by continually starting at the top of every race, and will force other countries to see it as a serious and strong national
This year the presidential elections will take place at the beginning of November, and there are lots of people wondering how this is going to end. Some candidates for these presidential elections may not have been the best choice for their respective parties, but the one that really shouts, “I should not be here” is Mr. Donald Trump. His personality and actions are not the correct ones for a president because of his temper and comments against other cultures. On the other hand, we have Mrs. Clinton who is a more competent candidate; she has more experience on the field of politics than Mr. Trump who has none at all, which are the reasons why she is a better choice as a candidate and as president of the U.S.
President Donald Trump’s immigration policy, now an Executive order, has been the topic of controversy since the order was signed on January 27th, 2017 (BBC.com). An improved order was again signed on March 6, 2017 (BBC.com). However, a case in the Supreme Court of USA will determine the future of the ban, which runs between October 2nd and December 21st (BBC.com). The first executive order banned people from seven countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya from entering the United States for a period of 90 days. It also put a halt on refugee resettlement for 120 days and banned Syrian refugees permanently (Park). However, as per the revised executive order issued on March 6th, Iraq was removed from the list and the
The entire editorial board at the New York times decided to cooperate on an op-ed piece covered on Donald Trump concerning his post election actions and decisions. The Op-Ed was titled “What President Trump Doesn’t Get About America” and was published on the New York Times on January 20, 2017. The rhetorical situation behind the piece is the after-effects of Mr. Trump's official inauguration which took place on the same date the Op-Ed was published. The author's purpose and intended audience is to inform and persuade the American people that America was and will be fine even with some of the so-called harsh executive decisions of Trump.
In November 2016, Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. With a campaign centered around otherization and nationalism, the atmosphere of this election, as well as the attitudes of the citizens of the country, bears similarities to 1930s Nazi Germany. While it may initially seem far-fetched to compare
So first of all, what is democracy? “Democracy is a form of government that is not attached to any pre-given political or ideological ends, but allows ends to be chosen by the majority vote of free citizens.”(Fish, Opinionator.blogs.nytimes). In a democracy, anyone can run for office, and all eligible citizens can participate equally by voting. Everyone’s views, whether one is part of a majority or minority, are represented, and people can also freely express themselves and voice their own opinion. Furthermore, we peacefully solve internal conflicts, without
The year is 2020, President Trump’s presidency is coming to an end, but it cannot come sooner to the American people. Trumps years in the Oval Office would have been great if not for his sudden decision to initiate the removal of immigrants during his last months as President. Every major city in the United States is swarming with Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents. Immigrants are being taken right out of the workplace, rounded up, handcuffed and sent back to their home country. As the immigrant population disseminates, hundreds of local businesses across the nation go bankrupt. Boarded up store fronts are now the norm. With the dramatic decrease in the immigrant population almost no one is willing to invest in the infrastructure of towns with low socio-economic statuses. Farms are being left no crop pickers, in a few weeks there will be a shortage of produce across the United States. As people begin to ration, the economy continues to plummet. Every day the immigrant population decreases and everyday more businesses close, more food goes bad because of the lack of crop pickers, and more people begin to realize the importance of the immigrant population. This could soon be our reality, if immigration is not dealt with properly and in accordance with current information.
On January 20th, 2017, President Donald J. Trump was sworn into office after a tough year and election. Many people believed that he would not be able to win presidency, they said that he wasn't capable of winning an election since he was against very acknowledged candidates such as Bernie
ody Hayes-Tyler English 1301 Mr. Hale 11/18/16 Donald Trump Will Donald Trump fulfill America’s request and actually “make America great again”? When friends of mine who are Trump supporters inform me that they support him, I don’t understand the reasons why they picture him as our future president of the united states. Donald Trump has never been an elected official. He has never been elected into an office of any kind. He’s never had to broker political compromise or gave any political speeches prior to him running for president. With no experience in politics at all, why would people think he’d make a good president? Sure, Donald Trump is a barefaced self-promoter and experienced businessman. But people don’t realize all of the mistakes he has made as a businessman. Washington, D.C., is not a type of Wall Street or anything for him to lose money or make some reckless decisions that would put our country into a deeper hole that we are already into, and also getting multiple things done within the nation’s capital takes more than a huge personality and a strong will. If Donald Trump is elected to be our president, he’ll have to quickly learn how to deal with his Democratic associates in the House of Representatives and Senate. He’ll also have to get used to the pace of government because there are moments when things can accelerate pretty quickly and also where things can move extremely slow at times. He’ll also have to get used to giving speeches on topics
Donald J. Trump will be the next president of the United States. Continuously throughout the election process, pundits and commoners alike dismissed even the slightest possibility of a Trump victory for a host of reasons. The most glaring of which was that he had no political experience, followed closely by the fact that he consistently spewed hateful rhetoric directed at nearly every demographic imaginable, save for white men. Nevertheless, as the election drew closer, the number of his supporters grew and became increasingly loyal. Indeed, his faction was so loyal that he even boasted, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn 't lose voters" (Diamond). It seemed as if no matter how many sexist, racist, xenophobic, etcetera, remarks he made, that his supporters weren 't merely indifferent; they were rejoicing at his "honesty." Furthermore, many of Trump 's Draconian policies, although hard to pin down, given that he was always wavering, were often at the expense of women, Muslims, and other minorities (Timm). Meanwhile, those opposed to Trump, regardless of who they endorsed, were astounded as to how, in such a diverse country, a man who disrespected so many people could garner so much support. From another perspective, many were bewildered that there were so many Americans who somehow still believed that not every human deserves equal rights. Rather than articulate their viewpoints eloquently, many Trump supporters standoffishly claimed
Trump’s View on Immigration Will Ruin America In Detroit, there are 100-plus Iraqi immigrants, many Christians, who came to the U.S. seeking asylum from brutal persecution, something like many American’s ancestors. After decades living in the U.S. Iraqi Chaldean Christians, indigenous Iraqis, are being rounded up and being sent back to Iraq. During the campaign trail, Trump vowed to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East, but in exchange of removing the travel ban the U.S. agreed to return Iraqi nationals. However, Judge Goldsmith of Detroit granted a preliminary injunction request as many immigrants will face physical harm if they returned. Immigration, the foundation of American society for centuries, will be ruined by President
Mr. Trump always argues that the outside world is bringing harm to the U.S. and that America should no longer be involved with foreign countries, like Mexico. But what he does not understand is that, by cutting these connections, he is dooming America, both economically and socially. My full argument about this that I and my two classmates wrote in class is: Trump’s misleading, falsely based data, leading to America’s economic failure. This you might disagree with; however, we should not hold hands with someone that will lead us, no ensure
