How the impression of Trump has changed since the election.
Start writing a post

President Trump will go down as one of, if not the most, controversial POTUS to date, and for good reason. His decision to run for President and his campaign alone shocked the nation and sent people into a frenzy. He doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks of him but oddly seems to care what everyone is saying about him.

I truly cannot imagine the pressure of being the leader of the free world. The endless decisions he has to make, the sleepless nights, and the constant criticism have to take such a toll on this man. My question is, who cares? He is the one who chose to run for POTUS, he is the one who makes the racist and idiotic remarks that cause people to dislike him so greatly, he is the one that did this to himself.

As you may be able to tell already, I have not grown to like this man in the slightest.

In fact, I have grown to dislike this man even more than before. There is little to no reason he should've been able to run for this position, let alone become POTUS. He was barely qualified at the time of announcing his campaign and ended up winning against arguably the most qualified candidate to ever run for POTUS, Hilary Clinton. Obviously, she has her flaws, but C'MON people, how did we let this happen?

Watching his blatant disregard for any walks of life besides wealthy white males among other things is truly barbaric and simply disheartening as a citizen of this nation. We, as a nation, managed to elect an official to run our nation who has been accused of sexual assault by over a dozen women, infidelity, and a man who tells constant lies to the public become the leader of our nation.

Nice defense, Donald! Everyone totally believes you now! Not. We absolutely should not believe a word this man says. According to the Washington Post, in the first 649 days of his presidency alone, President Trump told the public 6,420 false or misleading claims. So much for "fake news" when it's coming from the man who coined the term.

Narcissist (noun):


a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves.

Just thought I'd throw that in there. Anyway, did I mention he was responsible for the longest government shutdown in history because he didn't get what he wanted and threw a tantrum? Beginning on December 22nd, 2018, President Trump decided to shut down the U.S. Government upon not receiving funding for his border security wall he wants to be built on the southern border of the U.S. as soon as possible. This wall was a major promise in his campaign in 2016 when he claimed he would make the Mexicans pay for it to keep themselves from entering our country illegally. (no seriously anyone that actually believed that was going to happen, I'm worried about you). After not receiving funding for this wall and starting the government shutdown, denying thousands of government workers their paychecks, he continued to throw a hissy fit for over a month. The shutdown eventually ended on January 25th, 2019.

Moving on, regarding the wall, President Trump believes that the best and ONLY effective way to keep illegal immigrants out of our country from the southern border is to build a wall. He has claimed that the people coming into our country from Mexico are "rapists," "drug dealers," and "criminals," when in fact, the numbers for these crimes in the U.S. are dominantly U.S. citizens. The wall is estimated to cost billions of dollars for construction and labor. If Mexico is not paying for it, the U.S. taxpayers aren't paying for it, and the U.S. Government won't give him the funding he wants so badly, how is he planning on building this wall?

There are very few things to like about this man. Perhaps you can find one? No? Me neither. Since becoming the leader of our nation, my dislike for this man has only increased. He has gotten away with far too much since becoming POTUS, and I hope to see repercussions for his actions in the near future.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
