Donald Trump's Identification

Improved Essays
Throughout Donald Trump’s revolutionary campaign there has come lots of uses of identification. Trump has used this identification to persuade his supporters like no other candidate before. Identification is “ the common ground between the speaker and the audience” (Griffin 299). In this case, it’s the recognized common ground between Trump and his supporters. Many people would probably believe there is not common between a billionaire and an average voter. But, I have been lucky enough to attend some of Donald Trumps rallies in New Hampshire. I was absolutely blown away by his personality and persuasion when I went to them. Before I went to one of his rallies, I can honestly say I was strongly against him becoming the next president of the …show more content…
Unlike most, Trump is willing to cause a ruckus in what he believes. As we turn back to the idea about dramatism, we look at the idea that Trump was first regarded as having no shot to win the nomination. And this was the same idea on the democratic side as well as it was said Bernie Sanders also had no chance to win the nomination. Trump’s message is about safety, growing the military and protecting our country from terrorists. Another, example about how Trump has shifted the paradigm of political rhetoric and especially dramatism is the idea of endorsements from various respected senators and governors. Various newspapers like the New York Times, wrote harsh editorials on Trump. In most normal campaigns that would kill any hope of getting the nomination but not Trump. If Hilary Clinton had a negative editorial written on her, her campaign for the president of the United States would be over. Trump though, is not one of those normal politicians who have been in Washington for years, Trump goes to his rallies and holds up that newspaper and rips it to shreds in front of his energized supporters. We as a society have never seen anything like this, this is called modern politics and the rhetoric that has come out of Trumps mouth is just the gift that keeps on giving. Unfortunately, some of the stuff he as spewed has been less than presidential but than again he might actually become the republican nominee in July. This new dramatism is something that will affect all further elections because people are tired of the cookie cutter Washington

    Ever since Trump’s polling has started to drop; we have seen Trump start saying that he is “afraid that the election’s going to be rigged.” In recent surveys we have seen almost half of the entire Republican party believe that voter fraud is a major issue this election and that only 11 percent of Trump supporters thought that the votes will be counted accurately. Trump is creating a situation in which our entire system of elections is being called into question. He is doing this because he ego is so huge he doesn’t want people to think he actually lost the election. This creates a situation in which a decent portion of the country will believe that if Hillary Clinton is elected that she got there by rigging the system. Trump is influencing these people to distrust our Democratic system and thus is weakening it.…

    “Donald Trump has not demonstrated the temperament necessary to assume the greatest office in the world,” said the Illinois Senator, Mark Kirk. The assumptions are made because of his behavior and how he portrays himself on the media. In addition, some of the Republicans, like Mike Murphy, see other candidates more fit and ready for the role of the president of the United States. The candidates identified as prepared for the position of presidency is the democratic party nominee, Hilary Clinton, as well as, Mike Pence, the Republican vice president nominee.

    Along with all the other editorials I have read Newmyer also brought up the point that Trump might be avoiding releasing his tax returns because he is hiding something. Clinton said, “Maybe he doesn’t want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he’s paid nothing in federal taxes.” All of America heard Trump confirm this allegation. Trump blurted out, “That makes me smart.” From here the debate was downhill for Mr. Trump. I also agree that there might be something Trump is hiding when he comes to his taxes. Why will…

    Common sense seems to dictate that one of the current presidential candidates, Donald Trump was never thought to be running to lead our country. Trump is most commonly known as the very successful businessman who has made billions of dollars in his lifetime. He is also known for being extremely outspoken, and opinionated. Although, I don’t believe he would be the best option for our country due to his fearlessness when it comes to offending people and could even potentially chose the wrong words ruining our relationships with other countries. I am aware that many voters are ready for a change to a more outgoing, and verbal candidate.…

    To the widely known immature comments on illegal immigrants and the way he handles Univision own, Jorge Ramos when he threw him out for asking hard questions on immigration. Although, this wasn’t the first time Trump has made the media swirl over comments like these, it is certainly not the last. That being said, I think if Donald Trump were to be president, it would be a huge embarrassment to our country. I do not think Trump has proven anything other then being a very, uneducated, inexperience, unknowledgeable candidate in the 2016 presidential elections, and that’s all I will say about…

    For instance, something that is always being brought up upon these two candidates are the release of Donald Trumps tax returns and Hilary Clintons deleted emails. Trumps refused to release his tax returns but the question is why? In the Final presidential debate Hilary states that Donald Trump is the first candidate who hasn 't released his tax reports. In Politifact article by Louis Jacobson, he states that, “ It is true that Trump 's businesses have received a lot of attention, but without the release of Trump 's tax returns.” Trump does not want to release his tax returns due to possibilities of facing criticism. On the other hand, Hilary Clinton email scandal being reopened by the FBI which is totally bizarre for the fact that it is only a few days beadier the election and it may affect her campaign.…

    Trump made some outlandish claims throughout the campaign trail which led many to believe there was no possible way voters would hand him the keys to America. Yet somehow even amongst all of the prejudice towards minorities, statements objectifying women, and lack of a presidential temperament, he is the one we will inaugurate in January. Clinton supporters claim that his victory proves that racism and prejudice are still very prevalent topics in America today because they feel it is what his entire campaign was built upon. Whether you agree with Hillary supporters or not, there is some truth to their claims because some people in America will always be prejudiced regardless of how advanced or accepting our society becomes. Some parents will continue to raise their children prejudiced and instill the notion that they are…
