Back in 2016, Donald Trump won the political decision with 304 constituent votes, while his rival, Hilary Clinton just had 227.

In January 2017, it was the time for the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, to pass the baton to Trump.

After taking the oath of office, it is time for the inauguration address; America First. In the following paragraphs I will do an analysis of the speech with emphasis on discourse analysis and language to find out if Donald Trump succeeds in communicating his message.

Looking at the language in the speech, it is easily comprehendible. He is using colloquial language rather than a more technically advanced language.

This way, Trump is able to have a larger target audience, including the younger Americans. The speech is using an informal language, characterized by the short sentences, the narrow vocabulary, as well as the many repetitions.

Overall, the language is easily understandable and ensures the receiver understanding the message. To take a closer look at the language, a discourse analysis will now come.

To start off, the nodal point in America First is America, or rather, the future of America and it is the key concept in the speech.
