Trump's Advice To Politicians

Donald Trump has won the American election despite all the odds that were stuck against him. The media did not favor him, the pollsters ruled him out, and even bigwigs in the Republican party of which he is a flagbearer denied him. He was literally a man on his own. Some labeled him as a racist, divisive, unfit for president and a very dangerous figure in the American polity.

Donald Trump was a man of principles. He never wanted to find himself in a situation which could conflict his personal convictions with that of his Republican party and the rest of the American people. However, he seemed to have had a message that resonated with the American people, both black and white, men and women, and the ordinary American in general. His message was simply to "Make America Great Again!". He never hid his true nature from the people he sought to lead.

Donald Trump's message to "Make America Great Again!" resonated with the
American masses and resulted in his election victory.

I personally admired Trump's take on how to end migration and the deportation of illegal migrants, especially those from Africa. This was a call to African leaders to sit up and address the problems in their countries that are making those countries unattractive to the youth. It was a call for African leaders to creatively think and solve their own problems than encouraging youth to stowaway.

Although he became unpopular with his utterances, he never gave up his principles. He knew that to win the trust of the people, he has to stand on his principles no matter whose ox is gored. He was not a favorite of the bookmakers. He was seen as an unfortunate figure among his party.


Internationally, Donald Trump was seen as a divisive figure and a racist. But it did not stop him from soldiering on to victory. Trump had it at the back of his mind that it is only the American people who can make him president and no one else. His task was, therefore, to get a message that speaks to the hopes and aspirations of the American people first. The international community comes second.

As a businessman, Trump had a strategy that worked; give the people more of what they like and they will always be loyal to you. He knows how to win the trust and confidence of a customer. And the evidence is clear in his victory in the 2016 American election.

Television Commercials: How They Impact Children

Television and radio used to be mediums of learning in the past. It was once said that any student who wants to learn how to speak good English must be an avid listener of radio and television news. And it was not an exaggeration at all.

From the news items to the commercials, everything was good for education. Even the movies. Certain movies were planned to be shown at certain times of the day depending on whether they were suitable for children or not. Adverts were very exciting to watch or listen to. They were easy to memorize and some even became singsongs among school pupils.
As seen on tv
Children learn more from visuals than from verbal instructions.
The television should be able to help them learn better.


Movies rated LNV and PG were shown at times children were assumed to be away from the television. Adult content was reserved for night showing when children had no chance of viewing them. And it worked to control the desires of energetic children who were willing to try what they see adults do, especially on the television.

Vulgar language was difficult to detect in a movie. Children were better educated because of the educative programs that were shown at the time.

Even alcoholic beverages were not advertised at times that children were believed to be hooked to television, especially at prime time.

Today, creativity among children who watch television has gone down. It is also not easy to find children who can do interesting stuff or write comprehensive sentences because we have flooded our television screens with so-called modern practices. Aphrodisiacs now assume a huge percentage of advert time than books.

Imagine future leaders who are introduced to pornographic content at a tender age. They are tempted to practice when nobody's watching. They can't write legibly. They can't speak English fluently. And the best grades are from rich homes because of leaked exam papers they bought and not from geniuses.
