In 2016 Donald Trump was elected president of the United States of America making him one of the most powerful people in the world. During the 2020 election, Donald Trump has done everything in his power to keep his position.
In the article “Trump fights to keep a job he shows no interest in performing” written by the columnist Max Boot, it is argued that Donald Trump is fighting for a spot that he is not fit for.
Boot includes facts and expert opinions to support the validity of his claim, which is a characteristic of persuasive writing.
An example of an expert opinion could be as follows, “Trump is silent even though scientists estimate that universal mask use could save 130,000 lives by the end of February.”5
The article is written in a formal style, but also in a way that is somewhat easy to comprehend. However, the text does contain some words that are a bit more complex such as “impasse” and “capricious”.
Moreover, the article includes comparisons that do not comply as common knowledge for everyone, thus some background knowledge may be needed.
