Donald Trump: White Hot Threat to American Democracy
The 2016 American election altered the political landscape, with the consequences significantly encroaching on the human rights of American marginal populations. This paper examines the role of predatory identity and the disintegration of media in the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president and its subsequent impact on the American political landscape. By considering concepts such as predatory identity, The Daily Me during the current cultural-political moment within the context of the American constitution, this essay seeks to address the potential consequences of Donald Trump’s election to American democracy.
