'Part of the beauty of me is that I'm very rich' But that's just part of it. His fingers, too, are 'long and beautiful'. Improbably coiffed, perma-tanned and bronze-tongued, the Donald has increasingly impinged on the world's consciousness through a string of startling pronouncements. From his preference for war heroes who have not been captured, to his references to his sleeping around in the 1980s as his 'personal Vietnam' or this - 'My grandparents didn't come to America all the way from Germany to see it get taken over by immigrants' - Trump's utterances are nothing if not intriguing. As he once said, and to date this has been hard to dispute, he 'could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and [he] wouldn't lose any voters.' Here, in his own words, is the businessmen, the dealmaker, TV personality, author and one-time Democrat, now Republican who would be president of the United States.

What should Christians think about Donald Trump? His policies, his style, his personal life? Thirty evangelical Christians (listed below) wrestle with these tough questions. They are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. They don't all agree, but they seek to let Christ be the Lord of their political views. They seek to apply biblical standards to difficult debates about our current political situation. Vast numbers of white evangelicals enthusiastically support Donald Trump. Do biblical standards on truth, justice, life, freedom, and personal integrity warrant or challenge that support? How does that support of President Trump affect the image of Christianity in the larger culture? Around the world? Many younger evangelicals today are rejecting evangelical Christianity, even Christianity itself. To what extent is that because of widespread evangelical support for Donald Trump? Don't read this book to find support for your views. Read it to be challenged--with facts, reason, and biblical principles. With contributions from: Michael W.

From an abundance of intensifiers to frequent repetition and parallelisms, Donald Trump's idiolect is highly distinctive from that of other politicians and previous Presidents of the United States. Combining quantitative and qualitative analyses, this book identifies the characteristic features of Trump's language and argues that his speech style, often sensationalized by the media, differs from the usual political rhetoric on more levels than is immediately apparent. Chapters examine Trump's tweets, inaugural address, political speeches, interviews, and presidential debates, revealing populist language traits that establish his idiolect as a direct reflection of changing social and political norms. The authors scrutinize Trump's conspicuous use of nicknames, the definite article, and conceptual metaphors as strategies of othering and antagonising his opponents. They further shed light on Trump's fake news agenda and his mutation of the conventional political apology which are strategically implemented for a political purpose. Drawing on methods from corpus linguistics, conversation analysis, and critical discourse analysis, this book provides a multifaceted investigation of Trump's language use and addresses essential questions about Trump as a political phenomenon.

Talking Donald Trump examines the language of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign from the perspective of sociocultural linguistics. This book offers an insight into the many stages of Trump’s political career, from his initial campaign for the Republican nomination, up to his presidency. Drawing from speeches, debates, and interviews, as well as parodies and public reactions to his language, Sclafani explores how Trump’s language has produced such polarized reactions among the electorate. In analysing the linguistic construction of Donald Trump’s political identity, Sclafani’s incisive study sheds light on the discursive construction of political identity and the conflicting language ideologies associated with the discourse of leadership in modern US society. Talking Donald Trump provides a crucial contemporary example of the interaction between sociolinguistics and political science, and is key reading for advanced students and researchers in the fields of sociolinguistics, language and politics, communication studies and rhetoric.

A compelling and masterful account, based on fresh reporting, of the investigation, impeachment, and acquittal of President Donald Trump, a ferocious political drama that challenged American democracy itself. In the spring of 2019, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi did not favor pursuing Trump’s impeachment. Her view was: “He’s just not worth it.” But by September, after a whistleblower complaint suggesting that Trump had used his office for his political benefit, Pelosi decided to risk it. The impeachment inquiry led to charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, a gamble that ultimately meant Trump would be the first impeached president on the ballot in US history. Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington Post reporters Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan have crafted a powerful, intimate narrative that concentrates on the characters as well as the dramatic events, braiding them together to provide a remarkable understanding of what happened and why. Drawing on the deep reporting of Post journalists as well as new interviews, Sullivan and Jordan deliver a crisp page-turner with exquisite detail and scenes. They put readers in the room for both sides of the now-famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25, 2019, revealing the in-the-moment reactions of those listening to the call in Washington, as well as the tension in Kyiv, as aides passed notes to Zelensky while he was talking to Trump. Sullivan and Jordan deftly illuminate the aims and calculations of key figures. Pelosi’s evolution from no to yes. Trump’s mounting fury as “the I-word” became inevitable. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell firmly telling Trump on the phone about the Senate trial: You need to trust me. Trump on Trial teems with unexpected moments. House member Elissa Slotkin, a Michigan Democrat, alone at the National Archives, walking amid the nation’s founding documents, weighing her vote on impeachment. Fiery Republican congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida, a favorite Trump warrior, deciding to lead the storming of the secure room in the US Capitol basement, where witnesses were testifying. The authors paint vivid portraits of the men and women branded by the president’s supporters as foes from the “deep state”: Ukraine experts Fiona Hill and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman; ambassadors Marie Yovanovitch and William Taylor. The narrative spools out amid Trump’s nonstop tweeting and the infinite echo chamber of social media, which amplified both parties’ messages in ways unknown during past impeachments. Sullivan and Jordan, aided by editor Steve Luxenberg, follow the story into the aftermath of Trump’s acquittal and the president’s payback for those whom he believed had betrayed him. The retributions took place as the nation reeled from a devastating pandemic and widespread protests about racial injustice, with another trial looming: the 2020 election.

President Donald J. Trump has been the subject of withering attacks on his character and fitness for office since announcing his candidacy for president in 2015. The radical left, Democrats and their media allies, and “Never Trump” Republicans say he poses a threat to the presidency, our governing institutions, and our national character. He’s repeatedly accused of being a liar, racist, misogynist and dictator. Stephen Barry and Marc Z. Lieberman, longtime friends with opposite views of Trump, debate his presidency in real time in this book. Through text messages, they highlight the stark divide in how the public views Trump. From Trump’s efforts to ban immigration from dysfunctional Muslim-majority countries, to his plans to build a wall on the Mexican border, to his initial response to the coronavirus pandemic, the authors consider the consequences of his actions—as well as his motives. For those who oppose Trump, the underlying theme is that he should not be permitted to exercise the powers of his office. But are they right? See the arguments for Trump as well as why it’s imperative that he be allowed to serve.

From David A. Fahrenthold, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, comes a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the stories and scandals of Donald Trump’s campaign. In February of 2016, Donald Trump promised $6 million in donations, including $1 million from his own pocket, to local charities along his campaign trail. But by the time he won the New Hampshire primary, he had stopped giving away money and had donated far less than his pledged amount. Washington Post reporter David A. Fahrenthold went in search of the missing money, and found a bigger story than he ever expected. In this collection of articles from The Washington Post, Fahrenthold chronicles his investigations on candidate Trump. From a deep dive into the Trump Foundation to breaking the news of the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, the information he discovered shaped the course of the campaign and set the tone for the Trump presidency. A must-read for anyone who followed the 2016 campaign, Uncovering Trump takes you behind the scenes of Fahrenthold’s investigation, through the lens of his expertly reported news stories.

With the election of Donald Trump on November 8, 2016, Americans experienced a sense of relief and joy, knowing they could again participate in a vibrant business environment that offers them the power of self-determination and the freedom to pursue their life goals and live according to their faith, unencumbered by political correctness and the stifling ideology of creeping socialism. For the last fifty or so years, the dark-side left have, though academia, the entertainment industry, deep-state bureaucrats, and the liberal big media, successfully been undoing the centuries-old institutions of free market economies, which has created unprecedented wealth the world over. In its place, the dark-side left have been molding these institutions to reflect their warped ideology of a new socialist world order, with no boarder and based on a Marxist, "progressive left" utopia, an oxymoron, if there ever is one. The long-term strategy for achieving their transition relies on undermining the economic engine by enacting burdensome big government regulations; by imposing political correctness and identity politics into our daily conversations, social interactions, and norms; and finally by attacking one's religious faith and values. The dark-side left's "long march through the culture" has resulted in the indoctrination of each new generation using the direct influence of academia, movies and television programs, the daily news coverage, and government policy. Miraculously, as if by divine intervention, after just one year of his presidency, Donald Trump has managed to force into the open this sinister plot by the dark-side left, with the world now acutely aware of the serious bias of the liberal big media, the corruption present at the senior levels of the intelligence branches left behind by the Obama administration, the serious extent of liberal bias in academia and their effort to restrict free speech, and the self-interest of lawmakers seeking self-enrichment from Washington's swamp-dwelling domestic and foreign lobbyists With his unwavering commitment to work on behalf of the American people, Trump has almost single-handedly inflicted journalists and the political elites with varying degrees of Trump derangement syndrome and exposing their warped, self-serving values, resulting in them becoming almost totally incapable of providing unbiased, insightful political arguments on current issues for their audience. Because of President Trump, the world is witnessing the excruciating collapse of the dark-side left and the Washington swamp. His ability to navigate through the minefields laid by the bipartisan swamp and the liberal big media can only be answered through our faith in God, who, in all his wisdom, has chosen this man to save free market countries and its people from the evils of the dark-side left and their elitist minions.

What do Winston Churchill—the eloquent, eternally quotable wordsmith, pudgy politician of fifty years, wealthy aristocrat, war-time Prime Minister of England—and Donald Trump, the 6’4”, brash, Twitter happy, political neophyte, billionaire entrepreneur—have in common? In his new book, complete with never-before-told anecdotes, bestselling author Nick Adams explores how both leaders, with seemingly nothing in common, turned their day’s prevailing politics on its head. In doing so, they both endured shockingly similar battles instigated by the political establishment seeking their destruction. Trump and Churchill’s unorthodox approach to both domestic and international relations has rescued Western Civilization from the brink.
