Donald Trump’s presidential bid has been controversial since it was announced. He is a billionaire businessman turned TV personality who is using his fame and fortune to run for president. Trump openly discriminates against undocumented Mexican immigrants. He is planning a mass deportation of undocumented Mexican immigrants and the construction of a wall along the southern border of the Unites States, if he is elected president. As one of his most controversial statements, his plan to build a wall is being scrutinized by the public, the media, and his fellow presidential candidates.

Instead of dealing with problems actually facing America, Donald Trump plans to use the United States’ money and resources to build a wall along the southern border to stop illegal immigration.

As the leader of a nation one must respect all of the legal citizens, at least, and work for what is in their best interest. Trump does not believe that children born to undocumented parents deserve to be considered legal citizens. The plans Trump has proposed do not consider all current legal United States citizens and it is to the point where his opponents are speaking out in concern. Trumps antics are such that even his opponent, Republican presidential candidate and the former Gov. George Pataki spoke out saying that “[Trump] has been demeaning towards all different groups throughout this campaign... he’s not qualified or fit to be president of the United States.” If Trump 's words can be as strong and derogatory as they are during his campaign, his actions if elected president could be

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.

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.…

    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.

This is known as the “backfire effect” and could cause candidates even more damaging to Democracy than Trump getting into office in the…

    Because undocumented immigrants are willing to be paid less, Americans struggle to compete for the jobs. We have Americans out of work, but foreigners having more jobs than American citizen does not make sense. According to Donald Trump’s website, he wants to “put the needs of working people first” (“Immigration Reform”). This idea leads to Trump’s big plan of building a wall which is needed to prevent illegal immigration. Even though many may think building a wall is rude, I personally think it is just a clever way to prevent undocumented immigrants from entering; however, I do not agree with Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the wall.…

    The Veil of Ignorance, proposed by John Rawls, does not allow people to use their advantages, or suffer from their disadvantages. Everyone has to act impartially, out of fear they will be disadvantaged by the rules. From the mutual commitments the U. S. and its allies have made mutual commitments that Donald Trump has gone back on these commitments, pulling the United States out of them. Trump has cast his own Veil of Ignorance in not holding to these commitments, when the United States has been a part of them for years, is unethical. Trumps Veil of Ignorance can be based on the idea that he is more committed to solving the United States problems on the home front, and not on a global scale which will eventually come back to bite him.…
