“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.

He had different professions before being a candidate in the presidential election, professions, such as, being a businessman and a television producer. For being successful within these two occupations, he has gained large amounts of supporters for his campaign. However, his past has affected greatly his number of supporters.

    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.…

    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…

    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?…

    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.…

    Many citizens decided to split ticket vote if they did not think he was doing well as president, but Obama still won the election with 65,899,660 popular votes and 332 electoral college votes. There were also two less states that he won than in his first election. After Obama served two terms, some people felt that they had to “repair” and get rid of what Obama had accomplished. Hence, a Republican candidate was elected by the people, promising to “Make America Great Again”! This is a prime example of political polarization, as the parties pretty much are just going towards each other, and trying to make America how they want it, with no exceptions.…

    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…

    Although just a five day time span, this lying has been a trend in Trump’s campaign. A problem plaguing Trump’s campaign is that sixty percent of voters view Trump as untrustworthy (6). For Trump, this means that sixty percent of voters have an excuse not to vote for him. In order to gain the trustworthiness of voters in the next thirty days, Trump and his team must fact-check. Fact-checking must go beyond the realm of formal debates, as well.…

    In his book, Trump highlights that the Americans are now in a situation where people try to make America great again instead of a joyful situation (Trump, 2015:13). Using this slogan as his main campaign theme, Donald Trump meant to mention himself in the same sentence as Reagan, who was also a halfway politician but won his good reputation and popularity among the Americans. We could see his attempt to evoke audiences’ memories to this powerful president and create his credibility. As we know, running for the presidency is a time and money-consuming process. Behind those candidates are various interests group.…
