The Trump administration says poverty is over… | Analyse

The United States of America has the biggest national net worth in the world and is home to the richest billionaires to ever exist.

In a country this wealthy, you would not expect poverty to be a real problem which is exactly what The Trump administration would like you to believe.

The mode for persuasion, logos, is also accomplished in the article. The journalist utilizes a lot of numbers, percentages and statistics when talking about how many people are affected by poverty and about how severe it is.

These numbers persuade the reader to believe in what Bryce Covert has to say, as she backs up her arguments with facts and concrete examples.

However, she is not very objective in her writing which goes against logos and could potentially develop doubt from her readers, as she might seem too emotional and stirred up to be very punctual and logical.
