President Donald Trump Essay

Abstract This essay focuses on the possible ramifications, both negative and positive, of a Trump presidency, from the perspective of Trump as the President-elect.  Because Trump has no experience in public service, much of the paper is speculative and focuses on what is known about the people Trump is selecting for his cabinet.  The paper acknowledges that Trump, a Republican President, will be supported by a Republican House of Representative and Senate in Congress, as well as being in the position to support at least one, if not more, members of the Supreme Court, but also acknowledges that Trump may not have Continue Reading...

Relationship Between Emotional Intelligence and Leadership

will impact people emotionally. It might be argued, for example, that some people view presidential hopeful donald trump as having no EI because he says words that are offensive to some groups of people. However, he also has a strong voter base and many followers precisely because of the way he communicates and the words and ideas he communicates. This suggests that he actually does have a strong EI ability: he knows what to say and how to say it in order to gain loyal followers. He is appealing to a specific type of audience in a very effective… Continue Reading...

Large Corporations Engage in Dishonest Business Practices

to dictate the decisions made in the society. Taking the example of donald trump, it is clear from the interview that a public servant or an institution only becomes professional or is said to be ethical only when they make a decision that favors his company. Such a thinking is immoral because will not only prevent other small companies from competing effectively. In doing this, Trump's implication is that his strong financial statement is meant to give him an upper hand when it comes to tenders in the country (Washington post, 2016). Looking at the cases of Andrew Forrest… Continue Reading...

Problems Unsolved and a Nation Divided

months in the wake of the forthcoming presidential elections. Each of the two major presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and donald trump, has included tax reform as a key element of their campaign manifesto. On one hand, Trump proposes to reduce the corporate tax rate once in power, while Clinton, on the other hand, proposes to increase taxes on the wealthy. The attention the issue of tax reform has received evidently indicates its criticality as far as the country's economic prosperity is concerned. On their part, Porter et al. (2016) propose that tax reform should be guided by economic efficiency,… Continue Reading...

Idiocracy Idiocy and a Nation Full Of Idiots

become idiots. The current crisis in the United States is due to rampant idiocy. donald trump's campaign capitalized on the state of "idiocracy" that has festered for decades in the United States, as citizens have become increasingly disillusioned and disempowered. A celebration of ignorance, and a tolerance of ignorance on the part of the polis, has enabled the emergence of a substantial number of idiots who "legally and officially were citizens...but then shunned the responsibilities of that role" in terms of considering the common good (Parker, n.d., p. 71). B. Parker (n.d.) presents six dimensions of democratic citizenship: deliberation, voting,… Continue Reading...

Businesses Run by Women

all too well, many entrepreneurs come from wealthy families. One such notable figure is donald trump. He did not achieve the level of success he had on his own. He came from a wealthy family with a father who loaned him a million dollars' worth of start-up money to invest in his new company. "Fred Trump, was at one point one of the richest men in America after constructing apartment complexes for the middle-class in Brooklyn and Queens... There was a nearly $1 million loan from Trump's father that was part of the deal" (Kessler, 2016). Not only did… Continue Reading...

How Supreme Court Justices Are Appointed

trusted to make decisions this important with proper care and consideration. The most recent election of donald trump further proves this to be the case. Even though presidential appointments are problematic in their own way, they still remain the best solution to protect the system of checks and balances. The recent fiasco with the opposition government stymying the President's Supreme Court nominees shows that the procedures whereby the Justices are approved and confirmed needs to be revised. That does not mean the decision should revert to the people. The election of state judges shows exactly how problematic public elections… Continue Reading...

How to Grow the Economy

tools and methods are basically exhausted and the economy is still very much in low gear. The election of donald trump, a man with very different ideas and political motives, will certainly change things. However, the question becomes whether those changes will be good or bad (Liesman, 2017). Even with the chaos and unpredictability of the Great Recession and what has happened since then, the tools and tricks noted above are still the best practices. Generally speaking, the government will tend to spend and act more during expansionary economic plans and times and they will tend to back off… Continue Reading...

Supreme Court Second Amendment Case

a contrary decision would essentially circumvent the decision in District of Columbia v. Heller. Potential Impact of President donald trump on the Issues President donald trump is likely to have tremendous impact on the issues in these two cases in the wake of increased gun violence and calls for gun control. The Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendment provide constitutional basis for rights Americans can claim when faced with accusations of involvement in crime. President Trump is likely to expand stop-and-frisk police activity throughout the country, which would have an impact on the Second Amendment right to bear and keep… Continue Reading...

Locke Vs Hume on Consent

violent resistance. This should not be conflated with the protests like those going on since donald trump was elected in the United States or when "Brexit" was passed fairly recently. Even if it is not on paper or formally announced, the decision of the people to abide with the law (political obligation) even if they don't happen to love the person or people that have been elected is absolutely consent. An example of that consent being withdrawn can be seen with events like the Arab Spring in countries like Egypt and Libya. Hosni Mubarak, the former dictator of Egypt,… Continue Reading...

Fake News and Knowledge Is Power

Fake News: Knowledge Is Power With the election of donald trump, it seems that power might come from the absence of knowledge. As Barton points out, fake news was once a fringe effect but has now become a "a strategy for consolidating executive power," (1). Anti-intellectualism and the dumbing down of American, which Richard Hofstadter describes in his 1964 Pulitzer Prize-winning book Anti-Intellectualism in American Life, highlights the problem of when a lack of knowledge becomes the key to political power when in fact knowledge should be the key to power… Continue Reading...

Trumpcare Vs Obamacare an Ill Advised Move

Ethics of Repealing and Replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Before President donald trump was elected into office, he promised to repeal and replace the ACA within the first 100 days in office. This was probably a ray of hope for all the people suffering under the act. Surprisingly, however, the term 'suffering' is subjective. It is not yet clear whether the majority of citizens prefer the existing health care system or not. According to statistics, the number of people who view the system as unfavorable almost matches the number of those who view… Continue Reading...

Understanding Voter Behavior Patterns

External Business Environment from 3 Squares Restaurant

markets rising from political uncertainties affect the restaurant. President donald trump promises on lowering taxes and cutting down on regulations resulted in the sale of risky bonds (Fontaine, 2016). 3 Squares Restaurant also bets on the promises to improve productivity and increase revenues. Lower corporate taxes could result in freeing cash for interest payment. Last year, for example, lots of fear prevailed in the market concerning the outcome of the election. Rapid reduction in the prices of commodities and the slowdown of the Chinese economy created market tensions. Such occurrences also affect the restaurant that fetches produce whose prices… Continue Reading...

Democrats Poor Performance in the 2016 Elections

to losing the presidency.  While the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, won the popular vote, donald trump won the electoral college votes to clinch the presidency.  The Republicans not only won the presidency but also won the Senate and the House of Representatives.  In the aftermath of the 2016 elections, the performance of the Democratic Party has been the subject of scrutiny among political analysts and experts in political matters.  The media has remained puzzled with the outcome of the elections because they were so wrong in their predictions.  One of the issues that has received considerable scrutiny by… Continue Reading...

Political Ideologies: Social Liberalism

near future? Following the current political happenings in America, most especially the election of President donald trump as well as the sustained agitation in favour of the 2nd amendment, there is a widespread expectation that the population of people who are in support of this social liberalism movement would enjoy a steady increase with time How might this ideological group impact political parties and elections?

Discrimination and Social Justice Issues Today

races and sizes looking at themselves in the mirror while various words of donald trump play over them. donald trump is heard calling women fat and criticizing them for being flat-chested. The advertisement ends with the question if this is the president we want for our daughters. The advertisement is clearly targeted as parents, particularly mothers, and questions Trump's fitness to be president because of proven examples of his misogynistic attitudes in the past. The advertisement is powerful in conveying the message that Trump has behaved in a very sexist manner in the past, although it does not make… Continue Reading...

Proposed Legislation in Nursing

this type of power. Proposed Legislation in Nursing The Congress has worked to propose various legislation since President donald trump took office this year. Most of them are major and likely to affect the field of nursing significantly. They include the newly proposed health-reform bill for the American Health Care Act (AHCRA n.p.). HR-114H2653 bill intends to phase out the Medicaid expansion and eliminate subsidies for low-earning Americans. It will replace the latter with a flat tax credit based on age. This system would imply that most Americans would be left without coverage. H.R.959 bill, which is currently as the subcommittee… Continue Reading...

Implementing Compassionate Immigration Reform

and importance in the post-September 11, 2001 environment. Should the United States follow the path outlined by President donald trump and simply build a wall between America and Mexico? If the U.S.-Mexico wall is a good idea, why stop there? After all, the United States and Canada share the longest unprotected border in the world and terrorists can slip through this highly porous border easily enough if they have the motivation to do so. A U.S.-Canada wall would not be the final solution, of course, since this still leaves two enormous coasts that are highly vulnerable to illegal immigration. In… Continue Reading...

De Jouvenel Quote on Sheep and Wolves

criminalized or that mass shootings cannot be controlled with stricter background checks for gun ownership. When a wolf-like politician like donald trump comes to power, the herd splits in two, making it easier for the wolf to lay down an attack. Half the herd reacts in anger and shock to Trump, rather than taking decisive action. Opposing the wolves in power requires a lot more than a society of sheep. A society of sheep can never effectively self-govern because it is not in the nature of sheep to do so. Sheep have a docile nature with the instinct to follow… Continue Reading...

Probability Of Inflation or Deflation

the year (BISC, 2017). However, US inflation faced upward pressure in the aftermath of donald trump’s election as president and his plan for loose fiscal policy. Despite the upward pressure on inflation, the response by the Federal Reserve has helped to stabilize and improve economic recovery. In essence, Federal Reserve’s policies and initiatives have played a crucial role in lessening inflation expectations and avoiding a possible deflation in the foreseeable future. In light of these factors, I think that inflation is more likely in the United States in the next two years in the current economic environment. As compared… Continue Reading...

Political Science

against the candidates in the two major parties. It should not be a huge surprise that even though donald trump is by no means an “establishment” Republican and even though he clearly was not desired as a victorious candidate by a good share of the GOP base, he still ran (and won) as a Republican. A third, and ancillary, reason why third-party candidates are often derided and hated is that they seemingly (at least to some) “split” the vote of the candidate that is closest to them. Indeed, this was said quite a bit when it came to the… Continue Reading...

The Trump Travel Ban

suggest the travel ban goes against the rights of U.S. citizens, residents, and people on visa. President donald trump’s actions has led to fierce criticism on both the Republic and Democratic sides as well as bring about legal challenges. Many Americans agree that the temporary banning of refugees and immigration from specific countries is wrong. They agree because they feel it is not necessary in guaranteeing the safety of the United States. While the travel ban allows some Americans to feel safe during an age where terrorism dominates, it creates racial tension and hatred; additionally, banning certain countries or… Continue Reading...

Preaching James and Related to Poverty

zeitgeist remains strictly focused on selfishness and corruption. The election of donald trump shows that a large number of Americans remain ignorant of their own individual culpability for injustice and inequities. A spiritual leader can illuminate a way forward. The way forward is grounded in gospel truths, but liberated from dogma. The way forward is through self-awareness and collective action. The poor need to recognize the value of personal empowerment and non-violent civil disobedience, to evoke needed changes. Labor unions and other forms of collective action remain valuable tools in the arsenal of the disenfranchised. Likewise, the rich also… Continue Reading...

Why Facebook Is Banned in China

gates. And yet Facebook is not completely opposed to filtering content—not anymore. Since the election of donald trump to the White House in 2016, the left-leaning Zuckerberg has decided to start filtering “fake news” from the site (Snider, 2017). But what constitutes fake news for Facebook might not constitute fake news for all of its users. In short, Facebook is embarking on the kind of content regulation strategy that China demands of its social media providers in the East. Is this a step towards Facebook getting China to agree to let the social media giant into the country? By initiating… Continue Reading...

Donald Trump 2018 Political Issues

The two articles I read talk about donald trump’s alleged incompetence. In essence, the articles paint the picture of a president who does not have a clue regarding the running of state affairs. As a matter of fact, one particular article, by Eric Posner, goes ahead to predict that Trump will most likely be removed from office on account of political incompetence before his term ends. Another author, Ezra Klein, is of the opinion that, in essence, donald trump is an authoritarian leader, but “his authoritarian instincts have been checked by… Continue Reading...

The Election Of 2016 Outcome and Evolution

Dewey, had a similar, populist “give ‘em hell” style to donald trump. Dewey’s supporters were similarly unenthusiastic as many of Clinton’s supporters, who backed her more as the anti-Trump candidate versus someone they genuinely admired. But the parallels end there, as Truman was still an incumbent president who had a lifetime of political service, while Trump, in stark contrast, had never held office. Sabato notes that first and foremost, Trump rode a wave of anti-immigration and white resentment of what they perceived as encroachments upon their privilege. Many individuals who voted for Obama shifted their allegiance back to the… Continue Reading...

Fake News Essay

fake news was responsible in large part for propelling donald trump to victory in the 2016 U.S. presidential election (Omilian A8). The newly elected president has also engaged in spreading fake news stories which has received an enormous amount of attention from the press, and this raises the very real question concerning at what point “fake news” becomes “real news.” Responses to fake news It is impossible to eliminate fake news stories entirely due to free speech rights and the Internet’s open publishing environment. In fact, it is reasonable to suggest that most people would prefer to allow fake… Continue Reading...

Black Lives Matter Essay

resulting, at least in part, in the upset victory by the Republican presidential candidate, donald trump (Fletcher, 2015). Even when presidential candidates attempted to positively respond to the group’s emotionally charged question, “Do Black lives matter?,” Black Lives Matter representatives refused to accept their affirmative responses and pressured them to concede rather that, “Do you fully acknowledge the unique injustices that have been and are being committed against African Americans?” (as cited in Marino, 2015, p. 6). Given the enormity of the “unique injustices” that have been perpetrated on African-Americans over the centuries, this too would have been a… Continue Reading...

the Country or Destroy the Union?

Although some close associates report that Trump’s interests in politics date back decades, his formal interest was demonstrated in 2015 when he announced he would be a Republican Party nominee for president (donald trump biography, 2016).

that had not marked American politics in almost a century.  The Republican candidate, donald trump, had no prior political experience of any type.  Hillary Clinton, the projected winner, won a clear majority of the popular vote, but lost the electoral vote by failing to secure wins in states where she was the projected winner.  The Trump victory surprised many political pundits and American voters, who immediately began to wonder what role, if any, rumored Russian interference in the election played in Trump’s victory.  As of October 21, 2017, those issues remained largely unresolved.  Although Russian interference in the election… Continue Reading...

Immigration in America

the years—especially in the wake of 9/11. In America, a surge of nationalism brought donald trump to the White House, as he pledged to be tough on immigration, build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, and make America great again by making it safer. Still, that promise has not been without its costs.
