Donald Trump Political Tactics
Thesis: Why do Trumps policies and political tactics cause voters to either strongly like or
strongly dislike him?

Donald Trump is very opinionated when it comes to his beliefs and his political views.
One of Trumps views, that cause controversy, as most of them do, is his view on immigration.
Donald Trump thinks that all illegal immigrants need to be stopped from coming in our country,
and that we need a giant wall to help do this. Some people agree one hundred percent, while
others are extremely upset over this idea. When looking at the statistics that trump has showed, it
is costing $1.1 billion a year to house 351,000 immigrants in jail. He also speaks on the statistic
showing that on average, an illegal immigrant has 7 criminal charges. These so very blatant facts
are causing racists, anti-immigration, and many other people that do not have a negative
connotation like the others, to praise Trump; while others, are getting angry and could not
despise him more.
Donald Trump on Abortion. On the Issues. Fox News, 6 Aug. 2015. Web. 12 Nov. 2015.

Abortion can be a very sensitive and is a very controversial topic, no matter who is
talking about it. The thing about abortion is you are either for it, or against it. A huge factor in
whether you are for or against abortion is your religion and your experience. As you can see,
Donald Trump admits that he used to be pro-choice. Now, Trump is a pro-life. And what
happened is friends of mine years ago were going to have a child, and it was going to be aborted.
And it wasn't aborted. And that child today is a total superstar, a great, great child. And I saw
that. And I saw other instances. And I am very, very proud to say that I am pro-life. If you
support pro-life, you are every strongly opinionated for it, much more than being able to say its
everyones choice. More than half of the population is pro-choice which is where Donald Trump
is getting a lot of hate, again. The people that believe in pro-life are very for Trump and agree
with him greatly on this; whereas, the majority of people who are pro-choice are the ones
protesting against Trump and strongly dislike him. A lot of people that are pro-life are religious
and stand strong with their belief and with Trump as well as stand beside most conservative

Taxes are one of the many reasons Americans do not like our government and think that
they steal from hard working citizens. Some Americans however believe that taxes should be
equal to all and some believe that the rich should pay more. Donald Trump is proposing a tax
plan that he wrote about in his book, Time to Get Tough, and his plan says that the rich should be
taxed more than the poor. Our country is hungry for real tax reform. That's why we should
implement the 1-5-10-15 income tax plan. And we need to enact [the rest of] my 5-part tax
policy: kill the death tax; lower the tax on capital gains & dividends; eliminate corporate taxes;

and a 20% import tax. Usually this is a liberal view which puts a twist on his views, but at the
same time he has a conservative view by wanting the taxes to stay low until you make a certain
salary. One side of the spectrum is all for this, most likely a mix of liberals and conservatives,
considering its a mixed view. The other side of the spectrum will riot in the streets about the tax
policy as they do every election. This for once, is where Trump is getting some of his non
republican voters on his side and he needs that if he wants to win. Trump in this instance is trying
to make both parties happy by taxing the rich more and taxing the poor less, but also by making
tax cuts in general.

When it comes to capital punishment, this is something you either believes are a valid
and accurate punishment, or you think that its not fair to take someone elses life, even if they
took another and that it is unjust. This, along with abortion, is one of the biggest policies that will
boost or decrease your ratings in the poll. Donald Trump is for capital punishment to the max and
says anyone who has taken a life should forfeit their own. This can make look like an animal to
the people who are against it, and a hero to the people for it. Also, Trump believes that the death
penalty will serve as a deterrent to criminals and scare them or make them contemplate what
they do before they do it. Trump believes that criminals should be punished as heavily as
possible, so they cannot prey again and repeat the incident, and instead they can learn their
lesson. Trump believes that judges should be held accountable for their sentencing. Pedophiles,
drunk drivers, murderers, and other criminals are often are set free to prey again because of light
