with swagger and charisma, Donald j Trump, a New york real estate tycoon went about his campaign not minding the disowning remarks of his fellow Republicans (like Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan ) and others. The 2016 American election was like no other, a deviation from the norm. Real issues that bothered Americans were minutely brought to fore while the best moments of the campaigning were reserved for name-calling, campaigns of calumny and scandals. to discredit him, Trump’s past was brought fore by the Clinton campaign machine and allegations of groping women without consent and misogynist behaviour against women were consistently hammered over and again especially on the media.
