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.
April 2015 was the year Donald Trump, the Republican, announced to the public his serious interest in joining the 2016 presidency election. Trump 's highest interest is immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, and states they are "criminals.” He blames the race of Mexicans of robbing Americans jobs, and treating Americans like babies (Miller, n.pag.). What he does not know, is that not all Mexicans are "criminals," and we are not robbing Americans ' jobs. Most of us come to United States to work our hardest, and get a better job. Trump not only is he a racist, but he also has made many unprofessional actions and decisions. We should not be voting for Donald Trump because his ruthless actions against immigrants are strongly affecting our society and segregating most races within each other. He can be a dangerous future president who is carelessly choosing between the white American and Mexican.Trump shows a high interest in segregation among all races and blames most of the unemployed by allowing Mexicans to “take over”.
Among the presidential candidates for the year 2016, Republican representative Donald Trump seems to have the most ridiculous and controversial campaign ideas. One of his more known campaign ideas has to do with banning Muslims from the United States. He generalized that all Muslims currently, or plan to act as, terrorists who will launch attacks on US soil. Building a wall on the border between US and Mexico is another well known idea of his, especially because he wants Mexico has to pay the cost for the wall’s construction. Even though politicians may paint immigration in a negative light, the United States relies on immigrants to help its economy, so it should not opt to throw them out of the country.
Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign has come at a time after having a president serve for two terms. Americans are eager for change. Donald Trump promises to be the change to fix the nation’s concerns about foreign affairs, and immigration
On the front runner Donald Trump, a candidate he has criticized a lot during his short lived presidential bid and after when endorsing Jeb Bush. “Donald, I don’t think he understands what makes America great,” Graham said in a more serious tone while urging reporters to ask Trump harder questions. “Our party and our country is going to have to step up its game.”
Gross and a colleague of his, Solon Simmons, enacted a study to update previously conducted research to modern standards (pp. 34-41). They examined preferences, values, and historical tendencies. The results led to Gross’s creation of the “political identity” approach for academics that he relies on throughout the remainder of his book (p.39). He found the majority of professors, in reality, did identify with the left side of the political spectrum. However, this taxonomy can be further broken down. Marxists, progressives, and centrist-democrats all account for the larger label of “democrat,” with most of them belonging to the progressive category. This liberalism, by American standards, is more lenient toward change and social equality. Why does this liberal concentration exist and what does it mean for students?
Look at what happened in Paris. I mean these people; they did not come from Sweden. Okay? Look at what happened last week in California with, you know fourteen people dead. Other people going to die they are so badly injured. We have a real problem.” This part of Trumps response attempts to make people expect immigrants coming into America are looking to do harm and he supports this statement with the shared experience of the tragic attacks on Paris in November of 2015.
Unexpectedly, the front-runner in the Republican presidential race is the one guy that no one expected to be a serious candidate. Donald Trump has leaped ahead of the rest of the Republican field, making friends and enemies alike. Since his controversial announcement speech, polling has put him squarely in the two of popular GOP candidates along with presumed leader Jeb Bush. As startling as this is to many, it is even more alarming to those parts of the GOP who are trying to broaden their appeal and reach out to minorities. Already, many political operatives are doing damage control in the wake of Mr. Trump 's path and others are trying to tie his racist statements into the fabric of the Republican party itself.
“Trump is a symptom of the contemporary political climate in America that draws its origins from a number of factors. For one, the undercurrent of racism that has existed in this country since its inception. While it has been marginalized bit-by-bit over the past several decades, it’s clear that racial bigotry is still very much alive and widespread throughout the United States. This unfortunate subsection of the American populace became increasingly more vocal during the Obama presidency, while also gradually gaining some degree of mainstream acceptance via online forums and what we now call alt-right publications.
With the explosion technology and social media, not only do Americans have to read multiple sources to fully understand topics like politics, you have to scan and skim those articles to make sure they can rely on them. In Jonathan Capehart’s article, “Donald Trump’s rhetoric will keep the Republican Party out of the White House,” for The Washington Post, describes why Trump’s blatant racism and ludicrous comments will keep not only him, but all Republican candidates out of the White House. Capehart argues that the countless offensive remarks against Hispanics will make the Republican Party less credible and then even if Trump is not the main GOP candidate, his xenophobic comments will keep any Republican out of the Oval Office. From a glance, this article may seem reasonable and level-headed, however, the information provided is flawed and does not paint an accurate picture of the whole situation. Capehart also presents his article as partially biased, even though any opinion should almost be nonexistent. Comparably, another article by Charlie Savage, describes a similar account of Donald Trump saying something offensive about minorities, but this time it is about Muslims. In his article for The New York Times, Savage talks about a revision made to Trump’s “I plan to ban all Muslims from the United States” speech that could potentially keep Trump out of the courts and keep him in the race for President. By Trump stating he was only going to ban Muslims who were out
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” These are the words of Donald Trump, now the presumptive republican nominee who represents every republican in the United States; that’s 23% of all voters or about 55 million registered republicans in the nation (Pew Research Center). Recently, Trump has stolen the spotlight with his flamboyant nature as he expresses his narrow minded views without consideration of the opinions of others. However what makes him stand out of the crowd are his views that reflect strong racism. Trump continues to express his racist remarks on how Mexicans and Muslims should be deported
The New York times asked him some question, to one of them he response “ Because people look at you differently, either you’re a candidate or a congressman,” Meaning the people see you differently. They look for different things in a candidate than a congressman. Or people believe the candidate should be discipline, and just stick to the facts. When he was a kid he grew up in Montana, that Washington bureaucrats that forced them to make laws that would changed Montana a little. Ryan feells a little weird about this, seeing they don’t know what Montana means to the people that grew up
Donald Trump wants to send all illegal immigrants back to where they came from because he claims that all of them are dangerous but some of them are actually looking to start a new life.( "Candidate Dismisses Criticism of His Plan to Keep Muslims out of
During Trump's speech announcing his presidential bid back in June, Trump said, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best... They're brining drugs. They're brining crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people," according to CNN (Zaru 1). More importantly, Trump caters to the idea that Mexicans are criminals who are only known for stealing American jobs and taking money from Americans. According to the 2010 Census data, less educated native born men age 18-39 had an incarceration rate of 10.7 percent, which is more than triple the 2.8 percent rate among foreign-born Mexican men, and five times greater than the 1.7 percent rate among foreign-born Salvadoran and Guatemalan men (Ewing et al. 1). Therefore, the assumptions and fallacies Donald Trump, along with many other GOP presidential candidates spew about Mexicans and illegal immigrants, is far from the truth, seeing as native born men are more likely to commit crimes than immigrants. According to the Washington Post, former GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson suggested that Muslims might be dangerous, and even compared Muslim Syrian refugees to dogs, saying, "If there's a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you're probably not going to assume something good about that dog. It doesn't mean you hate all dogs, but you're putting your intellect into motion" (Ehrenfreund 4). Subsequently, after terrorist attacks in places such as San Bernardino, California
There are those who like Trump because he “seems like he wants to protect the country” and those who detest him because “he’s racist, a sexist, and a demagogue.” Politico Magazine’s article “Donald Trump is Shocking, Vulgar, and Right” by Tucker Carlson supports Trump since his outrages attacks are “indisputably true”. While the Vox article “The rise of Donald Trump is a terrifying moment in American politics” by Ezra Klein opposes Trump since his outlandish decisions could “be responsible for . . . representing America in the community of nations,” and it’s scary. Ezra Klein’s article was more persuasive because it quickly established it was anti-Trump with its words with heavy connotation that were fluent throughout the piece.
