I am very happy with your post, “The Results in the Election disappoint me,” because you stated how Hillary Clinton is more popular. Also i agree with your statement of how Donald Trump will put us in trouble.
I am interested in your post because it gives true statements about Donald Trump. I am as bewildered as you on why and how he even won presidency. He honestly has no right to talk bad about other countries and other cultures. One thing you said that stood out to me was ¨He had no solutions to fix out problems¨. This stood out to me because Trump doesn’t realize how serious being president is. He is just going to end up separating the country and will no longer let anyone speak for themselves. I believe that Trump is a joke and i’m honestly embarrassed to have a president like him. I am hispanic and i am proud of where my family comes from. I don’t like seeing Mexicans and other races being hated on just because they aren’t white. There is no right or wrong race and there shouldn’t be presidents like Donald Trump. Thanks for your projects. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
I think Donald trump is unfit for president. The way he expresses his ideas is not the way a president should. He has no experience with politics and even if he does with economics. It hasn’t been the best
I am very saddened by your post. To start, this man is going to be our President, so statements like this are of no benefit to society. Instead, I wish the American people would focus on constructive criticism, something that would allow more people’s voices to be heard and make success for our President and our country a much more achievable notion. To start, probably one of the primary reasons people like Trump and elected him is his lack of political history. The American people are justifiably frustrated with career politicians, as they are corrupt and create policy only to protect their own interests. You then go on to make many wildly generalizing and plainly incorrect statements to slander him. He called only Hillary Clinton a nasty women amidst one of the most hard fought and nasty campaigns ever run in the United States. She certainly said things about him to the same point, and two have somewhat made up and have been in a small amount of cooperation since. That being said, this one statement is certainly not reason to think the man hates all women and will bring back male dominated society. I am quite positive he never said all blacks and Latinos live in the hood. He has however talked about the poor state of affairs in our lower income sectors of society, and he says these things to raise awareness of the issue and show his goals to improve these situations. So, if anything he is looking out of these people in “the hood”. He has denounced the support of the Ku Klux Klan, so you are wrong again here. They showed their support for him, and he denounced it. He certainly never said that all Muslims are terrorists, he only said that people coming from areas with a high concentration of possible members of ISIS should be carefully vetted, something that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party even agreed with in part. He has never said anything about making a single policy specific to men or whites, so this is quite a bold statement to make with no supporting evidence. If you read more into the tax plan, the tax decrease would not only be for the wealthy. However, lowering taxes as a whole is part of his plan to help the poor, because the added success of businesses could possibly trickle down to those people these businesses employ. In summary, I greatly encourage you to look into these issues and try to find truth, not throw baseless unsupported claims slandering the man who will soon be the most powerful in the world. If you do look into these issues further and still hold in your displeasure, I would at the very least encourage you to provide supporting evidence for your negative viewpoints.
Well let’s focus on the goals of America it’s reuniting not dividing, there’s no reason to avoid the racial history of Donald Trump and he is still to this day, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-says-african-americans-and-hispanics-are-living-in-hell_us_57e9ddbee4b082aad9b694bf here is a link to article that adresses the fact that he believes that Black and latinos live basically in the “hood” which he has qouted in his campaigns. But obviously since you think his wealthiness will help our country, I will be sipping some tea and see people protesting while, he sit’s in his manhatten apartment rethinking how he shouldn’t scam students out of their education (hence Trump university) to get wealthy. He will obviously not only give a leg up to Wealthy White men thinking they have the right to grab a women by her private part then tell her how beutiful she is. Happy holidays Matthew!
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
