WorkCited With Trump saying a lot of things in the media and in hisspeeches, many people have to fact check everything that is said. Manynewspapers are now coming out with articles fact checking what is said andgiving the right information. The President has misled the public so much thatnewspapers are giving out the real information that our President should havegiven us.
The lies told to the public might never stop, but catching these liesand making it known that what was and is said is a lie might let thepoliticians know that the American people know what is truthful and what isnot.Another way thePresidents statements can be detrimental is that he can make laws that arerelated to his opinions. The example that all Mexicans are criminals andrapists escalated to the President wanting to build a border wall between theU.S and Mexico.
While it is true that there are drugs and illegal immigrantspassing into the U.S, creating a tall wall that costs almost $21 billiondollars is not the solution. Another problem is that President Trump has putmultiple bans on Muslim countries to stop terrorists and extremists fromentering the country. The Supreme Court has allowed the latest travel ban totake effect on Monday December 4, 2017. Trump is right that the Islamicextremists must be stopped from entering the United States. Another attack onU.
S soil can be prevented if the terrorists are cutoff from entering. However,putting a ban on countries that are predominately Muslim won’t always stop thenext attack from happening. The horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas wascommitted by a non Muslim. A travel ban wouldn’t have stopped it fromhappening. Many of these lies coming from the White House, especiallythe President himself should cause some panic from the public.
Saying lies isone thing, but believing them and telling it to the public is worse. Somepeople who don’t know better might see it coming from the president and saythat it is factual. People believing this can have detrimental consequences.People believing that all Mexicans are criminals and rapists can then be veryviolent toward Mexicans. The people might not believe they are doing somethingwrong because their President said it was true. With those scandals being two of the most shocking ones,there have been a lot of lies coming from the White House, especially fromPresident Trump.
There have been so many that people have been accustomed toall of it. Many of his speeches are mixed with lies about himself, differentpoliticians, countries, and races. His lies don’t stop there; the President’stwitter is filled with lies or statements that are not fact checked. This is ahuge concern, as the President of the United States; he should have factualevidence and data to tell the American people. However, the President justspeaks about what he thinks is true and doesn’t check if it is actuallycorrect.
One which President Trump stated was that former President BarackObama was that he was born in Kenya. This lie was first spread about the formerPresident because of his race and where his father was born. The Presidentshouldn’t listen to what other people’s opinions are of people and then stateit as a fact. The President has the power to get information that regularcitizens cannot get, but it does not seem like it is done. The President cantalk about his opinions, but not put it as a fact. President Trump has saidthat all Mexicans are rapists and criminals. Saying these things will not makethe Mexican and Hispanic community respect and give him their vote if he is torun for reelection.
There have been false statements told by the governmentbefore. Some of them are more known and damaging than others. Many people knowabout the affair that Bill Clinton denied having with Monica Lewinsky, withthen President Clinton stating, “I want you to listen to me. I’m going to saythis again – I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” However,on December 19, 1998 Bill Clinton was impeached by House for perjury andobstruction of justice. Another well known one was the Watergate scandal withPresident Nixon in 1972. People connected to President Nixon were caughtwiretapping phones and stealing documents.
Even thought there was some evidencethat those people were connected to Nixon, Nixon denied any involvement thathis staff had with the burglars, and then he won his reelection. However, therewas more evidence that Nixon was not being truthful and that caused him toresign on August 9, 1974.The United Statesgovernment has a lot of importance to the American people. The President,politicians, senators, and others give us insight on what is going on in thegovernment. The American public trusts them to give the right information aboutcurrent events in the house or senate that will affect their lives.
However,not all the politicians, senators, even Presidents are truthful to the people. Manytimes the people were being lied to by the government, to cover up events,problems, mistakes, even for personal gain. This has caused public trust forthe government to fall. Even though the government has misled the publicbefore, it seems to be on the rise.
