Donald Trump Domestic Policy

Improved Essays
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s bombastic stance on immigration reform has his supporters excited while his opposition views his pledge to build a wall on the US-Mexico border as idle chatter to gain publicity. Most think that Trump’s pledge is just to build a wall, but it involves many other aspects of immigration reform such as; tripling the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, finning and deporting people who over stay their visas, making e-verify nation wide program, passing legislation to force employers to hire US citizens, and ending birth-right citizenship. Some of his objectives are feasible and then others are completely ludicrous, for example the border would benefit from employing more ICE …show more content…
His supporters love his ideas, but his views do not represent the entire Republican Party. Since trump is more of a Tea Party candidate, his plan is more conservative than half the people he would represent as the GOP nominee. Recently political action committees (PACs), interest groups and lobbyist have begun to see Trump as a threat to the party as a whole. PACs have, either begun to fund against him and support other candidates, or resorted to running negative campaign ads about him. This is the cool thing about Donald trump: unlike any other candidate, PACs do not fund him and he dose not have worry about Interest groups since he funds his own campaign. Funding his own campaign gives Trump the luxury of saying whatever he wants to and since he does not have to conform to the party standards, the GOP is scared. This is what people find appealing about Trump his bluntness seems to be refreshing to voters. Also, voters like the idea of someone who has his own beliefs and is not afraid to stand up to interest groups. The Party views him as a threat, not only because they disagree with his policy, but also because they think he could not win a national election since his policy would spilt the voting demographic towards the democratic side of things. Trump could very well win the nomination, however if he does it will come at the expense of four more years of democratic …show more content…
It would be too easy for liberals to take advantage of class warfare. The Republican Party, by the media and liberals, has been branded with a stigma of being rich white old men that only want to make the rich richer and do not care about the needs of the middle class. Boasting such a braggadocios policy will just further that stereotype and widen the gap between minority voters and the GOP. Also, if Trump were to win the presidency, it is not guaranteed that he will be able to get any of his policy implemented. For example, if the democrats were to gain the majority in the house or senate, I would find it hard to imagine that someone with the rhetoric of Donald Trump would attempt to be bipartisan. Meaning the legislation would be killed in whichever house the Democrats have majority in. The best way to make America great again is not to build a wall on the southern border, but to elect a president that will reach across the isle and get things accomplished in

    Republican pundit Newt Gingrich even once stated that “liberals and progressives may use facts but he uses how people feel instead.” They have created a situation where they create fear to make supporters vote based on their feelings instead of researching the facts and making an educated decision. We see even today a candidate like Trump gaining support even when his blatant racism, misogyny, and bigotry is called out by others. We see that even when facts are brought to Trump supporters that they tend to believe more in the misperception of the facts than people who never saw the truth in the first place. This is known as the “backfire effect” and could cause candidates even more damaging to Democracy than Trump getting into office in the…

    As far as I am concerned, not paying his taxes is in no way justifiable. It has also been noted that once Trump does get into office, there is going to be less taxes for the wealthy. So voting him into office, we are not only choosing an unfit candidate to represent our nation, but we are choosing a candidate who is out to make this country work only for people like…

    For instance, “If Democrats think they will have an easy time stopping him in the fall, they might want to take a closer look at the characters who have been attracting the masses in recent years.” Otherwise, everything else that Zelizer stated were false. Americans do not correlate their affections in media with their affections in candidates. Moreover, Americans prefer anti heros in media such as television shows or movies, but not in the White House. Also Donald Trump supporters support change not an anti hero with unethical, mean intentions.Donald Trump is helping to repair America, and is not in it for his best interest, unlike Hillary Clinton who is trying to line her pockets. Donald Trump just wants to make America great…

    If Donald Trump Failed once then he will probably fail again. Let the United States face it, Donald Trump has a loud mouth, some terrible hair, and if the people of the United States saw his hair without knowing who he is, they would not vote for him. Donald Trump should not be president because he is already rich and old, he will make stupid decisions because he is a businessman, he is racist, and he is messing with gun control to make the country people vote for him. Donald Trump is already rich, old, and does not need to be the United States president. So why does Donald Trump feel the need to be president?…

    Currently there is a strong debate over who will be the next president of the united states, the final two candidates are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Both would make terrible presidents in their own way in my opinion. But the question is who would make the better president if it came down to it. Some would argue that Hillary would be the better choice, However Trump would make a better president simply because he’s a businessman, He wants to change things, and last but not least trump can’t be bought Trump is a businessman so he can help lower America 's debt and increase job growth. There are many things that I don’t agree with him about, but out of the two candidates he would be the better choice simply because he knows what would work and not work.…

    That seems to be his base, although he is trying to attract Republicans to support him, his accusations about illegal immigrants is quite backwards. Trump uses “Build a Wall” and “Make America Great Again” as a way to attract people who a completely against immigration in any way. He is pinned as a “racist”, but as one of the leading Republican candidates, building a wall will not solve all of the country 's problems. Immigrants help the United States economy tremendously, but they are illegal and just because they are illegal, they get the raw end of the…

    Although this plan made Trump gain some followers, the bottom line is that this proposal has the possibility to start a war. Economists say that this economic policy would do nothing but irritate the world’s second largest economy, and that would be unlikely to provide any benefit to the United States (How 'The Donald ' Could Incite a Trade War) . Donald Trump could no longer keep his composure when asked repeatedly about why he refused to release his tax returns. If the President of the United States cannot keep his cool when possibly dealing with other nation, or even our own, he may be forced to make rash decisions and blurt accidental information. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton has had her fair share of political experience, being first lady and a part of the Obama administration.…

    Donald Trump’s policies are unaffected by interest groups, but public opinion of his immigration policy has potential to damage, but not destroy, his ability to win the Texas Primary.
