The Christian Science Monitor published an article, “Trump Rides Rural Rebellion to Stunning Victory”, as a neutral article on the election of Donald Trump. This article talks about how Trump’s victory was unprecedented and surprising. Hillary Clinton was the expected winner; however, when Trump won the conclusion was drawn that the polls underestimated voter discontent and Republicans’ loyalty to their party. The unexpected victory changes what the past four years have brought. This makes conservatives happy with the election of Trump. Peter Grier, the publisher of this article says “Many conservative white voters have despaired at what they saw as America’s decline economically, militarily, and culturally, feeling the country was slipping away.

I never knew that where each one stood, I always thought that they were both unbiased.

- Donald the Demagogue: Donald J. Trump, is known to many as the orange man who wags his finger down a long table of celebrities firing them left and right every Sunday night on NBC. To others he is known as the billionaire tycoon, who graces our headlines for remarkably insensitive or oddball remarks. All (not even possibly Mr. Trump himself), at least until now, viewed him as a possible candidate for the next President of the United States. But as polls indicate, and citizens across the country (both moderate and conservative) vote in favor of Trump, he may very well be sitting in the oval office come January 20th, 2017....

- In the midst of one of the most controversial presidential elections in history, both political parties are struggling to prove that their candidate is the best choice. Clinton and Trump’s disapproval ratings are very low, but one has to ask, is there really a lesser evil to choose from. While Clinton has had her own fair share of past discrepancies, Trump’s track record proves much more troublesome. Donald Trump has proven to be an untrustworthy presidential candidate because of his misogynistic actions, his racial bias, and his corrupt business history....

- Research Paper "Everything is uglier up close." Donald Trump is the front runner of the 2016 race for the Republican Nomination. Placing no consideration on the views of the ring wing conservatives, but rather just making a decision based off of how Donald Trump conducts himself, both in the present and past, Donald would not make America great again. Many situations and people look well off from a distance, yet most of the time the prettiest faces hide the worst secrets, the person who speaks the loudest is the most desperate to be heard, and someone who says they tell the truth are the most likely to lie....

- Due to Donald Trump’s lack of political experience, preoccupation with multiple careers, and blatantly self-serving intentions, he should not ever have been considered a reasonable candidate for the presidential election.

In 2007, Forbes Magazine reported his annual earnings in entertainment alone to be $32 million.... [tags: Trump Should NOT Be President]
