In 2004, In an interview, Donald Trump said: “In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat” (Chris Moody). I have a theory that Donald Trump is not really the man that he said he was during the campaign, and my research assignment is based on that theory. I honestly believe that Donald Trump is a very smart man and that’s why he was able to steal the presidency away from Hillary Clinton.
Overall, this article was very biased against Donald Trump and talked about all the negative aspects of his campaign policies that our country would need to either get behind or protest. After seeing some of the recent statements that Donald Trump has made, he seems to be turning back on a lot of the policies he pushed in order to get elected. I believe this shows his brilliance in a way that people were unable to see before. In fact, 12 years ago he was a Democrat, and in an interview, he told the interviewer that if he was to run for president of the United States, that he would run as a Republican because he believed that republican voters would be stupid enough to listen to anything he said.
I would like to focus my research essay on truly finding out who Donald Trump really is, and ensuring readers of my essay that they can be more hopeful of his presidency then the general public has felt. I believe that he will not pursue a lot of his initial policies and that he will be able to work with the republican party to help fix the economy and do what is best for all Americans and not just the rich white. This is a very significant question because he will be the next president of the United States and this country needs to somehow find a way to unite behind him. I personally believe that he is not the man he claimed to be throughout his campaign, and am hopeful that he will be able to prove people wrong and apologize for his recent actions.
This subject is important because:
- A lot of the fear of the new presidency comes from the thought of a completely Republican government with the talk about Trump’s cabinet.
- Trump will have to fill approximately 4,000 appointments and it is crucial that they all support his presidency.
- One question that this article introduces is: How do people in political life approach what they call a duty to serve their country while preserving their dignity and decency?
