HERE IS CLASSMATE’S ANALYSIS: “1.State as accurately as possible the video’s purpose for presenting this information.  Explain your analysis/answer in five (5) or more sentences. This videos purpose was to inform us on how Trump won the Presidential election. How most thought Trump would lose major states but somehow still won. Trumps supporters supported him through the beginning but after his election most realized thats not who they should have voted for. But ones who had voted for him were all up for Trump to take the Presidential election. Overall the video shows us how he controlled the election by keeping his competitors under him.

2.What is the video attempting to convey and from what perspective is it presenting the information?  Provide your analysis/answer in five (5) or more sentences. The video is attempting to inform Trumps power he had in the election and how he attacked anyone and anything that would get in his way. He was very dark with the way he would handle negative comments about him, and didnt care what he would say he would just say it without a thought. And thats why I think people voted for him mostly. He was confident when he spoke thats what the people like. The information was presented was given to us by his own party leaders and authors and reporters from what they witnessed and what they know about the Donald.

3.   What key question can you develop from the content presented in the article?  Provide your question and then your analysis/answer in five (5) or more sentences. “Why Donald Trump for President?”

Even though he was being racist, very unprofessional for a presidential candidate why choose Trump? His own party thought he failed after some things Trump would do! The groups that were pro Trump knew how to make some noise and really stand by their leaders side regardless of what he would say and on off television.
