Alivia VillaniMr. RomeoWorld History11 January 2018 Current Event- Trump and Benito Mussolini Today, we have a fairly new president, Donald Trump. A lot of people in our country do not like trump because of some of his fascist way of doing things. He wants to build a wall trying to get all the illegal mexicans out of our country; which is good but also bad. He wants to “make america great again”, and also he makes some bad decisions and bad actions that represent our country. How can Trump “make america great again” when he acts in such a poor manner. To me, Trump is no role model. Think back all the way to Benito Mussolini. He was an italian politician, journalist and leader of the National Fascist party, ruling the country of prime minister from 1922 to 1943. Just like Trump, Benito Mussolini was not very well liked either. Donald Trump is not liked by many, but is also liked by many as well. Millennials for example, don’t like Trump. Millennials are the younger generation, mostly people 35 and under. Conservatives do for example like Trump. Conservatives are people who believe in tradition. They like trump because he does a lot of what the conservative people believe in. For example, Trump lowers taxes, and both conservatives and Trump like republicans. Trump does show a lot of hate towards people that dont like him. As a President of The United States, Donald Trump should be respectful to every single American Citizen. “I feel that Trump is anti-everything. Someone who demonstrates so much hate should not be a role model to anyone. Our country’s current political climate is topic and leads to hate”(Borneman). Conservatives like trump. But mostly, Christian conservatives like him. “I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more. “What I hear most often as I travel the country are five words that never, ever fail to touch my heart. That’s, ‘I am praying for you,'”Trump said. This shows the good side of trump, and what American that doesn’t like trump would have known that? The answer is none because Trump does not show it. Donald Trump is a lot like Benito Mussolini. Even though Trump did not show violence, Mussolini did. Violence is still a trait of un-trustworthiness, and that is what Trump shows to a lot of us today. “He also admitted to knifing a girlfriend in the arm. Meanwhile, he purportedly pinched people at church to make them cry, led gangs of boys on raids of local farmsteads and eventually became adept at dueling with swords”(Greenspan). Benito Mussolini was a Fascist. What that means is the form of nationalism is characterized by dictatorial power. I compare Donald Trump and Benito Mussolini because they seem similar. They both have the characteristics of being mean, unfair, and just not good people. I would call myself a Millennial teenager. I personally do not care for Trump, but I have to live with it because he is the man who makes laws and most decisions for our country. I do see how people compare Trump and Mussolini because from the research I have seen, they act and even look alike. Donald Trump is our President, and even if someone in this country does not like him, we should still show some respect for him as The President of The United States of America.
