Donald Trump Anti Heroism

Improved Essays
Zelizer, a Princeton University professor, misconstrued his belief of the association of the public preference of an anti-hero and how it correlates with candidate preference. Julian Zelizer believes Americans support the candidate of the Republican party because he possesses the traits of the anti-hero. Being that I’m a Donald Trump supporter, I do not agree with his assumptions that Americans prefer an anti-hero, I believe Americans want change. Furthermore, I believe the public is affectionate to anti heroes only in media such as movies. Politics and entertainment are two different species, the public will root for an anti hero in a movie, but not as a presidential candidate. Zelizer completely mislabelled Donald Trump, because I, and many Americans believe Donald Trump is a hero, and make vast changes.
Americans seek change, rather than an anti-hero, for instance look at Barack Obama, the first African American president. A man who made the American debt three times worse in a matter of eight years. Obama’s slogan centered around change such as “Change” versus “More of the Same”, "Vote for Change", "Change We Can Believe In", "Our Time for Change", "It 's about

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

    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.…

    However, he could be targeting both the Democratic and Republican parties’ therefore remaining neutral in his position. In the article, Starnes explains that,” the Republican voters are sending a clear message. They want a Republican president and want the old ways to be brought back” (Paragraph 14; Starnes). This quote sums up what the Republicans voters think should be in America.

    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…

    Trump is influencing these people to distrust our Democratic system and thus is weakening it. Not only is he saying this he is supporting a bill in North Carolina that he and other Republicans claim is to stop voter fraud. In actuality it is a deliberate attack on minorities and specifically African Americans in the state since they are most likely to vote Democrat instead of Republican. Recently a federal appeals court struck down the law and gave their reason as that it was “passed with racially discriminatory intent.” The Republican party and Trump have no deliberately targeted a group of people and are trying to stop…

    The slogan that propelled Donald Trump into his influence across the nation, “make America great again,” shows that Trump sees America has fallen downhill and has hopes to improve it. Trump wants to see this country go back to the prosperous country it once was, but he does not know how to filter his words according to most, which makes him seem frightening. Despite Clinton’s accusation about the risk of Donald Trump, his clever use of scare tactics gives voters a sense of security because of his ideas concerning immigration and terrorism. According to Molly Ball, author of “Donald Trump and the Politics of Fear,” Donald Trump uses fear to his advantage in hopes of winning the presidential election. Today, people in the US are frightened of…

    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.…

    If he wants to have a discussion on how to stop mass killings, I would be thrilled to have that conversation with him. But he is not going to run rough shot over the second amendment,” (Fox News 2013). Clearly he does not like Obama’s stance and wishes there would be different actions toward protecting American citizens. All Obama wants to do is make this country safe, but taking away American citizens guns is not the right way to accomplish…

    Ultimately, through this election the world learned of the divisive issues that plague the United States are greater than first perceived. Although, to say that whites are the sole factor of Trumps victory is incoherent with the facts. Whites voted against trump and should be known to have done so, just as minority camps should realize that members of their communities tipped the scale and voted for Trump—or did so by not voting, like the hypocrite Colin Kaepernick. Why is it that we don’t group these voters as members of the…

    Even during his speech, he talks, brags, of what he was able to do and speaks onto what he was unable to stop. As President, this manner was out of his reach, some would say, but there were many measures that could have been taken to better serve the people, lives wouldn’t have been lost if we were all able to follow up on the First Amendment. Will these people who have inflicted pain on the oppressed, get what they deserve? How exactly did Donald Trump’s election influence and spark a light within the supremacists, what does Donald Trump really believe…

    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…
