Pig. Dog. Slob. Disgusting animal” arejust some of the names Donald Trump has labelled women in recent years.
Thebillionaire is notorious for his sexist, racist, homophobic and misogynisticviews so it came as a surprise to the majority of society when he was electedPresident of the United States. The development of social medias has not aidedTrump to escape from the resentment he is subjected to as it seems more time isspent on Twitter constructing controversial, questionable and disputed opinionsrather than focusing on plans to restore America to the great country it oncewas. Despite his plans to build a wall between Mexico and America to keepimmigrants out, something like that in TV show “Game of Thrones” the businessman beat Hilary Clinton in the race to presidency even with all races otherthan white preferring Clinton. However, the question to focus on now is not whyTrump resembles a wotsit crisp or oompa loompa but will he be a successfulpresident for America especially with only business [email protected] now a virtual megaphone used to broadcast plans, policies and promises buthow hard will Twitter promises be to keep? Since he has become president, Trumphas used Twitter as an official channel for the White House to communicate withthe public and apparently bypass “fake news”. “Trump’s itchy Twitter thumbshave redefined politics” a quote from https://www.
cnet.com/news/donald-trump-itchy-twitter-thumbs-politics/shows the world how much of an impact he has on the modern day world. Almost75% of twitters users get their news from the service yet according to aQuinnipiac University poll in September of 2017 still an estimated 69 % ofAmerican voters think Trump should stop tweeting. This statistic became areality in early November 2017 with a Twitter employee deactivating his accountfor 11 minutes, a long time for Trump to be away from the “tremendous platform”he could possibly call home instead of the White House. On the contrary,Trump’s idea to constantly use the app as a flow of news, especially for themillennials should be commended.
It shows a step forward for politics and setsan example for the rest of the world to follow. He has begun to develop a newworld in which advancing technology walks hand in hand with global politics.According to http://www.nationalreview.com/article/454638/donald-trump-twitter-hes-won-social-media-battle “Trumphas created a Twitter empire with a reach that far exceeds the combinedsubscriber base of the New York Times and Washington Post” with over 44 millionfollowers on the platform. However Trump’s record speaks louder than his 240character speeches. With an approval rate of below 40% Trump may be tweetinghis presidency into oblivion. Although President Trump is a child ofimmigrant parents one of his biggest yet most hated propositions is the mammothwall he wishes to build on the US-Mexico border to stop unlawful immigration tothe country which he has insisted for a long time Mexico will pay for.
Despitemost immigrants in the US being tax-payers, job creators and often contributemore to society than those born in the USA, president Trump insists onconstructing the estimated $12 billion wall to stop the flow of illegalimmigrants and drug-smugglers. Although this idea sounds like it could bea success, it has been labelled as Donald Trump’s most moronic idea. Not onlydoes this notion of stopping all Mexican immigrants seem morally wrong, it alsosuggests that Trump’s campaign and legislations are showing signs of racism. Eventhough the idea is completely barbaric, Trump must be commended for the braveryhe has to put forward this proposition with oozing confidence to a world inwhich he his massively loathed. An estimated 11.6 million Mexicanimmigrants resided in the United States in 2015, this accounted for 27% of allUS immigrants. Statisticsshow that the number of Mexicans migrating to the US is less than in the pastso does this mean that Donald Trump’s plans to build a barrier are completelypointless? This proposition is a prime example of bad leadership and shows thatTrump’s judgements are very poor.
He has based his decisions merely on outdatedassumptions rather than on cold and hard facts. The “flood of illegal immigrants”in America is a problem that seems a relatively exaggerated one as most comeinto the United States to simply try and stay alive, not to take Americans jobsor housing.
