Surname 1 Student’s Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Rhetorical Analysis of President's Trump Inaugural Speech Context For a very long time in the history of the United States as well as the World, January 20th is one of the most significant dates in the calendar as it marks the day that the president of the United States is sworn into the office. Once the oath has been given, the new president of the country gives his first speech to the Americans. America developed a rhetorical tradition known as ‘inaugural speech' in the past decades, and by comparing the speech by the new president of the United States to those of the predecessors, it becomes clear how Donald Trump challenged this tradition. The main reason for always giving an inaugural speech is that it gives the president to make his promise to the people on what he would deliver during his term as well as appreciate the role granted by voters. The inauguration took place in the United States Capitol, Washington and it was organized by the Joint Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies as it has always been in the past. The United States of America is a superpower country and therefore, the primary audience of the speech remains to be Americans, but the secondary audience is the general global population who will be affected by the decisions made by the new president of the country.
