The United States of America is soon to go in for the election of its 44th American President. While the two major parties: The Republicans and The Democrats, along with a handful of independent as well as minor party candidates are all set to battle it out during the elections, the whole world has gotten its eyes on Who the next First Man of the U.S of A will be.
Although all of the presidential candidates come across as distinguished and reputable in their own regard, there is one candidate who never fails to catch eyeballs with his bold statements. The social media world and the internet has been taken over by his forthright jabs at various pressing issues of the current times. He is none other than, Donald Trump. The man who very perfectly fits the age old adage, “You can love him, you can hate him but; you just cannot ignore him.” Due to the media and the internet today, his personality has come to be this towering mammoth of today, while he can be called the most popular candidate albeit most of all for the wrong reasons, he also has some major pitfalls to his credit.
Let’s look at some of the reasons as to why did Donald Trump backfire as a person as well as through his twitter account (@realDonalTrump and the subsequent poll).
- Highly ill-timed polls
In spite of using twitter to express his opinions so very meticulously, Trump overlooked a very important technicality which caused him to become the laughing stock of the day. He posted a poll to ask his followers their opinion of whether he should go in for or back out of the final Republican presidential debate. As the polls on twitter go, he received the result a stating that he shouldn’t back out 24 hours after him announcing he would be backing out.
2. His live #AskTrump Q&A session.
Donald Trump went in for a live Q&A session on twitter with the hashtag #AskTrump considering that it would be an enthralling session of questions troubling the American mind. The session turned out to be anything but that with most of the twitter users amusing themselves to the fullest.
3. The stands (against minorities) that he takes.
4. The fact that Twitter will no longer be swung by his ‘Make America Great Again’ Slogans
5. Powerful statements.
6. Factual ignorance
7. Media presence
8. No apologies
9. Political Ignorance and inconsistency
And Ofcourse there are a hundred other counts on which he might not make it to the top. Well, even if he does, that guy is just a great fodder for entertainment.
