In ran for president as Democrat candidate.They both

 

In every four years,
citizens of United States of America choose their president by presidential
election.Each party
selects one candidate to become the president.This is a ten month long process
in which the candidates creates their own campaign.In 2016,Donald Trump ran for
president as a Republican candidate and Hillary Clinton ran for president as
Democrat candidate.They both started an election campaign in order to gain votes
from all around of United States.In order to do so,they both followed similar
propagandas such as videos,social media and website..Even though both Donald
Trump and Hillary Clinton followed similar propaganda sources,their use of
media and the messages they delivered were different;Donald Trump focuses on
fears by blaming specific ethnic groups,Hillary focuses on reliance and safety.

 

Trough his campaign,Donald Trump was mostly
focused on immigrants and minorities of America .Trump and his followers
believe that immigrants use resources and damage the economy while bringing
crime and violence (Balie) .The immigrants can be from any enthnic but he
spesifically targeted Mexicans and Muslims.In his campaign,Donald Trump shared a
tv ad which directly focuses on Muslims in America.In the ad ,first scene is a shot
of Obama and Hillary Clinton.A battleship launches a cruise missile strike
which goes to the border of USA and Mexico.In the border there are terrorist
attacks. A narrator starts to talk in the background who mentions that Trump
will shutdown of muslims entering United States.The narrator continues to speak
by saying Trump will cut off the head ISIS and stop illegal immigration by
building a wall.(Rucker) Firstly,this ad blames muslims for all of the terror attacks
which is one of the main and the biggest concerns of Americans.By showing the
border of mexico and America,not only he blames muslims but also he blames
Mexicans too.As a solution to the terrorism,the video offers to deport all of
them.Even though it’s the immigrants who got blamed mainly by Donald Trump,the
video also targets his opponent Hillary Clinton and former president Barack
Obama.The video gives a message that they are aware of the terror attacks but they
have done nothing and plan on doing nothing to stop terrorism.In this ad it can
be clearly seen that Donald Trump uses a propaganda in which he offers an
explaining to the problems that worries and concerns  American citizens by mentioning that these problems
have simpler solutions.The solution lays on the other groups which he believes
are malevolent towards America and its citizens.He suggests the solution for
these kind of  problems is to choose him
for president.He guarantees to find the solution for the problem by eliminating
the groups.

 

On the other hand,taking a whole different
approach from her opponent,Hillary Clinton focused on human rights of all
American citizens regardless from their ethnicity.Hillary has used Humayun Jhan
who is an American soldier that was muslim.Humayun Jhan died in Iraq while
protecting United States of America.In one of her video ads.Khizr
Khan,Humayun’s father, talks about his son’s story and the sacrifices he has
made for the country.In the ad,Khan walks around his house and look at his
son’s photos and medals.In the end Khan asks trump if Humayun was alive,would
he have a place in Trump’s America.(Cilliza)The ad specifically reminds us that
real people would be affected by Trump’s plans for the country.It gives the idea
to that the result of the election is important to people. It connects Trump’s
thoughts and comments towards muslims with the real pain suffered by muslims.

Hillary Clinton released an another ad which is focused on girls.The ad
contains a diverse group of girls.In the ad girls are staring at the mirror and
evaluating  themselves  while trump’s voice appears on the background.The
ad wants to remind viewers  that Trump
has commented ugly things towards women over the years and has no respect
towards women and he has made comments which can highly affect the younger
generation of girls.He has called women ”pigs,dogs and disgusting animals”
for instance.The ad shows how Trump can affect the girls in the society leading
them to feel bad about themselves.The ad wants to ask the question ”is Donald
trump the president we want for our daughters?”(Merica).The video shows not
only women but especially girls will be badly affected by Trump’s presidency.The
message it gives to its viewers can be clearly seen: the president of America
should encourage and cherish young girls,not insult them and damage their self
esteem.Especially for young girls who actually needs support from their elders,The
video questions Donald Trump’s language and respect towards women.If their
president makes them feel like they are not enough,there is a low chance for
these girls to believe in theirselves.No parent would want someone to insult
their daughter,so why they are letting someone who insults their daughter to
president?

 

Social media is a crucial way to communicate in 21st
century.Most of teens and adults only use social media in order to gain and
give information. Politicians are also use social media in order to gain attention
and votes.Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had exponential growth in their
followers in twitter during their election propagandas. since his tweets have been
retweeted a total of 12 million times – twice as many as Clinton’s,Donald Trump
seems to outperform Hillary Clinton on twitter.(Matthias)Donald Trump  is an active twitter user.Through the
campaign he has tweeted several times each day. He drags a lot of media and
attention by his tweets a tnd his tweets get thousands of retweets.Not just
American citizens but also everyone around the world follows Donald Trump on twitter.  Rather than political,Trump’s tweets are
childish and entertaining.He continuously insults and attacks a big list
of  people on twitter.This list includes
politicians,celebrities,and other citizens.He spesifically attacked Hilarry
Clinton in election. He has tweeted things like  ”Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years
of Obama—but nobody else does!”(Trump) which directly insults former President
Obama and his opponent Hillary Clinton.Donld Trump’s another tweet was on
Hillary Cliton’s email controversy and Melania Trump’s speech which gained a
lot of attention from media ”The
media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania’s speech than
the FBI spent on Hillary’s emails.”(Trump). The Melania Trump’s speech received
negative comments and critism which affected Donald Trump’s campaign. In this
tweet,Trump tries to shift the focus from his wife Melania Trump’s speech to
Hillary Clinton’s email controversy. From these tweets it can be easily seen
that the main purpose of Donald Trump is to draw negative comments towards
Hillary Clinton in order to make her look bad.In this way he can gain votes
while Hillary loses.
