A letter from me to you: LBJ to Donald Trump
It is with my greatest pleasure to congratulate you on this accomplishment and position! After years of planning, advertising, campaigning and organizing I understand the relief and gratitude you must be feeling after such an emotional election. Although this job is a dream, I must be honest and tell you it has its moments. At times it is going to seem like more downs than there are ups but with the right team, confidence and strategies you will be able to conquer these next for years with a breeze. Giving the time frame you are working in and the time frame I worked in I can relate to you with trying to please everyone. There are going to be incidents where you are not going to please the majority, but president to president that is not what it is important. What is important is doing what you believe is the right thing to do and follows the laws of our country, that is why I am here writing this to you to give you some tips of mine. August 4th, 1964 may have been one of my most chaotic and stressful days in office but being personal with the people of this country, working with your team in the office and staying calm when being thrown multiple things at once is how I managed to deal with this day in the most appropriate way I thought was possible. Let me clarify for you when I say personal, not because that is a complicated concept but because I truly mean this. To most people in this country you are just the

Trump executive order on immigration consists of eleven sections. Each section describes his plan of action and why he included that section. A few of the main key points in the reform is to build a wall across the border to separate two countries, Mexico and the U.S, and to expedite deportation. Trump describes how the suspension of Visas and other immigration benefits will protect the U.S. from terrorist attacks like September 11 and to prevent the admission of more “illegal aliens”. I plan to use some of the sections in this source to evaluate Trump’s immigration action and why he believes it’s necessary to do it. Also, I will also explain how some of the sections affect an immigrants life and why they now fear for their lives. Donald Trump immigration order caused chaos within the first ten days since he took office because immigrants were not expecting his presidential campaign proposals to start so soon.
President Donald Trump announced an extremely important policy that he wanted to an enact… through the popular social media site called Twitter. A summarization of what his tweet means is as follows; Transgender individuals are a disruption to the victory of the military. This message provoked outrage and, consequently, little approval nationwide. In order to formulate his message, President Donald Trump used the tool of rhetorical appeals. As stated by Doug Downs, Aristotle observed that people usually made three kinds of appeals: to logic, to emotion, and to a rhetor’s credibility (Downs 469). Emotional appeals, also called pathos, toy with a reader’s feelings, through the use of manipulative claims, in order to convince the reader of something
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 Sanders and Hillary Clinton. People believed that Hillary would definitely win but by surprise Trump won the electoral vote with his prize being a whole nation to lead. After being sworn in and officially becoming the president, Trump gave his moving but controversial inaugural speech. Through the longevity of the speech, Trump uses various rhetorical devices in order to get his point across to the audience.
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
From the beginning of his campaign to now, Donald Trump has emphasized his belief that the needs of America need to be placed before the needs of other countries. This is supported by the statement that “[America] is the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of [its] own. That must change” (Immigration reform [Trump], 2016). Even though he plans to implement policies that promote American opportunity in regard to changes in immigration laws, Donald Trump is at a disadvantage when it comes to policy because he is primarily a businessman and not a politician. That being said, however, Donald Trump still believes that he can make America great again through his immigration reform. Towards the beginning of his campaign, Donald Trump voiced his plan regarding the process of immigrants gaining legal status, saying that he “Would get people out and [he] would have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal” (Corasanti, 2016). However, a year later in August of 2016, he stated that “For those here today illegally who are seeking legal status, they will have one route and one route only: to return home and apply for re-entry like everyone else under the rules of the new legal immigration system” (Corasanti, 2016). Donald Trump’s proposed immigration policy has also evolved over the course of his campaign when it comes to the prevalent topic of deporting 11 million undocumented
Donald Trump’s Immigration policy is his worst idea since he decided to run for president. Trump thinks every illegal immigrant is either a rapists or a murderer. He even wants to change the Constitution. Donald Trump’s immigration policy includes building a wall spanning the length of the southern border, tightly enforce and changing laws regarding immigration, and deporting all illegal aliens.
In the 2016 presidential debate there are two candidates going head to head to see who is going to win president. The presidential election happens every four years, so that means if Hillary or Trump wins they will be our president for 4 years. If I were be able to vote I would vote for Donald Trump because he will protect us from immigration, he will get rid of abortion, and he will allow people to have a license to have a gun. If you were to vote for Hillary Clinton you are picking the wrong person for president because she will allow all of the illegal immigrants to be free and illegal in U.S., she will agree on abortions, and then she will not let you have a license too have a gun.
Donald Trump’s Immigration plan is the opposite of any other immigration plan. Mr. Trump plans to build a wall/ fence along the US border. Donald Trump said “I will build a great wall - and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me- and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words” (Ortiz). If Donald Trump becomes president, his plan is to send all terrorists and immigrants etc. to return home and apply for reentry (procon.org). Donald Trump will upgrade all immigration laws.
In the Inaugural Address made by Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, he talks about his plans for being the President of the United States. Being our current president, everything Donald Trump does or says is on the minds of the citizens. This is also very important because Donald Trump was able to win his way through a presidential election, even though he was more known for his business skills rather than his political skills. Donald Trump wrote this piece to connect with everyone in the United States and explain how he will fix all of America’s problems and “Make America Great Again.” In order to talk about how it will always be America first from now on, connect with the American people, and explain how America will now take action to
The Affordable Health Care Act also known as Obamacare is a reform law that was enacted in March of 2010 by the 111th United States Congress that had begun the last two weeks of George W. Bush’s presidency. And what they did was have a legislative branch meeting in 2010 to discuss The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that was eventually nicknamed Obamacare, that also included the Health Care and Reconciliation Act of 2010.This was an act that would ensure that all Americans have access to good quality affordable health care, and they would create all of the transformation and also keep it in the margins of the health care system. The Congressional Budget Office had determined at the time that the bill was made
Strong and powerful words that will live in America history for the rest of our lives. President Roosevelts speech marked the beginning of one of the deadliest war in American history, following the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.
Donald Trump does not deserve to represent our country as president. His harsh comments he has said can sometimes be seen as racial comments. He thinks that what he says is fair because of how bad our country is at the moment and he wants us to open our eyes to all that is happening.
The United States of America has truly changed over the years, ever since the beginning. During this time, the American government has also changed. As of now, there are multiple requirements that are required for running for president. Some of the requirements have been in place for quite a while now, but they still are in place for a reason. Also, we now have new ways of reaching out to the public during campaigns. The new campaigning games include using social media, newspapers, and spreading rumors due to people talking. Last, but not least, the political parties have changed. The political parties may not have changed too much in terms of what they are “in” for, but they have changed in terms of name and what they can finally agree on
In the last decade, “Character doesn’t matter,” was a popular presidential campaign. This was probably meant to give the misconception that a person’s character shouldn’t matter as long as the person gets the job done. Even though getting the job done is important, characteristics play an enormous role in how the job gets done and the effects that come after the job is accomplished.
In November of every four years, the United States must select its president. In the United States, the president is not only the head of state and head of government, but is also the commander-in-chief of the largest and most powerful military in the world. From the 300 million residents of the United States, only two people ultimately have a realistic chance of become the next president of the United States. These two people, and the eventual president, are chosen through an odd process semblant of a democracy which lasts many months and costs millions of dollars. This process includes causes and primaries, culminating in a small body of individuals (called the electoral college), voting on the next president based on a winner-takes-all popular votes result from their respective states.
