Trump’s controversial journey during presidential election

Trump’s presidential election journey has been the most controversial journeys in the modern history. He insulted many voter demographic groups, argued for United States should play a different role in the world and stood up against the accepted norms about democratic elections.

Here is the series of controversies during the campaign since the July convention.

  1. Trump’s alienation to women? 

Though, the reports show that Clinton was holding a lead in the double-digits over Trump among female voters. Surveys have seen a majority of voters believe Trump’s statements about women are relevant to the presidential race. In the recent reports of CNN/ORC poll, it was found that 60% of voters have a strong conviction about how Trump treats women “is an important indicator of his character and ability to serve as president.”

How this fact is relevant?

Because, in October reportedly at least 11 women accused Trump for sexual assault and misconduct. However, Trump denied all the allegations and called them liars.

Because, he called Clinton a “nasty woman” in the final presidential debate, which became a rallying cry for the supporters of the first female presidential nominee.

Because, Trump has repeatedly critiqued the weight of Alicia Machado, a former Miss Universe.

Here, is an excerpt from that piece:

Mic combed through Trump’s Twitter feed to find the most egregious instances of his sexist attacks. They provide a good look at Trump’s treatment of women over the past few years — in addition to other sexist comments he’s made in media appearances, such as the time he and radio shock jock Howard Stern discussed how “vagina is expensive” in 1997. 

  1. Trump insulted minorities? 

Trump also questioned over the capabilities of a judge of Mexican descent, born in Indiana, if he could effectively adjudicate a legal case against Trump University. Was Trump’s questioning over Judge Gonzalo Curiel had a conflict of interest? His Mexican heritage.  It happened in early August, after the Republican convention, Curiel strongly stated that the case against Trump would go to trial.

After Trump’s visit to Mexican president, republican put those rumors to rest in an Aug. 31 speech that was later doubled down on his plans to build a wall and deport people living in America illegally.

Trump frequently referred the ‘inner-cities’ of America, and cited high numbers of shootings in Chicago as evidence that Democratic politicians have failed to help blacks living in those communities. In his rally in the month August, he appealed black voters by saying, “What do you have to lose?”

After the Democratic National Convention, Trump chose to pick arguably the least winnable fight possible: He insulted Muslims and Muslim American parents of a soldier who died in Iraq in 2004. Afterwards, Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, appeared onstage to criticize Trump.

US unemployment rate falls to 50-year low

Published

on

The U.S. unemployment rate fell in September to a new five-decade low of 3.5%, while employers added a modest 136,000 jobs.

The Labor Department says that despite the ultra-low unemployment rate, which was down from 3.7% in August, average hourly wages slipped by a penny. Hourly pay rose just 2.9% from a year earlier, lower than 3.4% at the beginning of the year.

Hiring has slowed this year as the U.S.-China trade war has intensified, global growth has slowed, and businesses have cut back on their investment spending. Still, hiring has averaged 157,000 in the past three months, enough to lower the unemployment rate over time.

The unemployment rate for Latinos fell to 3.9%, the lowest on records dating from 1973.

New York, Sep 26 : US President Donald Trump was subjected to an embarrassment when the MSNBC news channel cut away from his press conference while he was speaking on the controversy surrounding him over the Ukrainian probe against former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump on Wednesday was addressing the press conference against the backdrop of impeachment proceedings announced against him by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following allegations that he put pressure on the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to order a probe against Biden whose family has business interests there.

The allegation against Trump came to light because of a whistleblower and a transcript of the conversation between him and Zelensky in July, which has become public.

As Trump was speaking to the media after meeting Zelensky to clarify his position, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut into it, saying: “We hate to do this but the President isn’t telling the truth.”

She added that Trump was trying to do it to deflect the attention from his impeachment.

According to the transcript of the telephonic conversation that has gone public, Trump is heard asking Zelensky to “do us a favour”, after the latter expresses gratitude for the military aid the US provided to his country.

Trump’s words of “do us a favour” is seen as a quid pro quo for the American military aid, because of which the impeachment proceedings have been announced.

After Wallace cut the press conference, her guest on the programme, justice and security analyst Matthew Miller, rebuked Trump for saying that Biden and his son had done wrong.

“This story has been looked at and thoroughly debunked by everyone involved,” Miller said, adding the real issue was whether Trump’s conduct is “impeachable”.

Trump is facing problem at a time when he is in New York to attend the UN General Assembly.

Kim Jong-un receives ‘excellent’ letter from Trump

Kim , Trump

Pyongyang, June 23 North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has received a personal letter with “excellent” and “interesting” content from US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media said on Sunday.

“After reading the letter, the Supreme Leader of the Party, the state and the armed forces said with satisfaction that the letter is of excellent content,” the Korean Central News Agency said, referring to its leader.

“Appreciating the political judging faculty and extraordinary courage of President Trump, Kim Jong-un said that he would seriously contemplate the interesting content,” it added.

The KCNA did not disclose when and how the letter was delivered to Kim, reports Yonhap News Agency.

The letter appears to be in response to the one Kim sent to Trump recently in time for the anniversary of their first-ever summit in Singapore last June.

Trump had described Kim’s letter as “beautiful” and “very warm”. He also emphasized that the relationship between them remains strong and that “something will happen that’s going to be very positive”.

The exchange of correspondence between the leaders renewed hopes for a resumption of denuclearization talks which have stalled since the breakdown of their second summit in February.

The summit collapsed as Pyongyang wanted sanctions relief as a corresponding measure in exchange for dismantling its Yongbyon nuclear complex, while Washington insisted that sanctions should remain in place until the North completely gives up its nuclear weapons programme.
