Newschaser: The Rhetoric of Trump in Essays and Commentaries Sample Deck

Newschaser is a collaboration that opens the door to succession planning in scholarship from one generation to the next and the application of Afrocentric ideology or African-centered thought as an underlying thematic framework.

Newschaser: The Rhetoric of Trump in Essays and Commentaries brings to light some of the most telling aspects of the Trump phenomenon. In twenty-one chapters, this volume covers the entire spectrum of the Trump rhetorical campaign, pointing out the various ways the candidate rose to the top of a very large field of professional and experienced politicians. Trump defied the routines and the accepted principles of discourse to claim the mantle of being a transformative political figure.

In this presentation, we highlight a few of the chapters and essays that offer critical analysis on the entire spectrum of his rhetorical campaign and what it means to be “they.”
