Trump’s showmanship now backfires on him



Trump addresses a socially distanced West Point graduation

The eyes of the President’s television producer guide him to look for dramatic tables that create the image of his own choice – strong, challenging, destroying the company’s structure and trampling on the normal ethics of the presidency.

But his recent efforts to create an attractive political image seems to bear fruit.

In a recent example on Saturday, Trump’s attempt to wrap himself in military power and prestige failed at a West Point graduation ceremony that seemed to use it to his advantage, as creeping walking down the street sparked so much social media ridicule that he felt the need to explain it in his own tweet .
And for all his tweet about law and order, he didn’t consider the latest real incident of police brutality – the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks behind in Atlanta, which led to the resignation of the city police chief – while seclusion in a New Jersey golf resort for most of the weekend.
The current president famously marched to an iconic church in Washington, Lafayette Square, DC, after the protesters were forcibly evicted, intended to project power to his supporters, but turned into a symbol of mismanagement by George Floyd’s protest and very tense relations with brass current and previous military. The tall iron fence erected around the White House then turned into a symbol of the severance of the President with sweeping changes to the nation. Trump’s instinct during Floyd’s death with the knee of a police officer around his neck was to exploit the situation to advance his own political prospects – rather than cool the tension and seek national reconciliation. Over the weekend, for example, he pounced on Major League Soccer’s policies to support his players’ right to protest during the National Anthem.
“And it seems the NFL is also headed in that direction, but not with me watching,” the President tweeted. Trump has long exploited the controversy regarding players who have knelt down to protest police brutality to create a cultural war problem to attract supporters. But it is possible that as the NFL match continues, his choice to improve may turn against the President if more players kneel and reflect a country that is increasingly willing to reconsider some of its attitudes towards race.

Back on the campaign path

This week, the President will return to the campaign path, holding a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday night – although there are fears that indoor arena events with large crowd types that are banned from sporting events will cause a spike in infections from novel coronaviruses. The initial plan was to hold a general meeting on Friday. But the decision to coincide with Juneteenth, a holiday that marked the end of slavery, served to emphasize the President’s deaf tone in the race. And instead of leading the matter, the President is behind – with Democratic and Republican lawmakers working on police reform and with major changes to law enforcement practices ordered by states and mayors of cities.

Trump’s demonstration, a striking example of the art of political performance, is far more important to him than to conventional politicians. Not only did they give the stage president a chance to enjoy the praise of the crowd, they also in many ways defined his wild presidency, and gave the impression that Trump was ganging up on a massive anti-Washington movement.

Trump has plans for more rallies in Arizona, Texas and Florida – countries where the virus is rapidly increasing again after the initial economic opening he requested. These events will likely focus on his rejection of a pandemic and inaccurate assessment that the United States has “won” over the crisis.

His striking refusal to wear a mask, meanwhile, underestimated his own government message that face masks could significantly slow the spread of the corona virus and actually accelerate the resumption of normal life. US General Surgeon Dr. Jerome Adams on Sunday undermined Trump’s implied argument that the change in social behavior mandated by the government to deal with the virus was a violation of the basic rights of Americans. “Some feel the face covering violates their freedom of choice – but if we use it more, we will have MORE freedom to get out,” Adams wrote on Twitter.
In many ways, Trump’s presidency is a series of interconnected and choreographic moments, from his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, who did nothing to convince the isolated country to stop its nuclear efforts, to make announcements like a new decision recently to get out of the World Health Organization amid a pandemic. Critics see the decision as an attempt to shrug off mistakes for his own failure in fighting the virus which he has long insisted will not be a problem for the US and has now killed more than 115,000 Americans.

This is what happened, for example, when he visited France in 2017 as a guest of honor at the Bastille Day parade in the country and returned home determined to show himself spectacularly with himself as the center of attention. The event finally turned into a very controversial celebration on July 4 last year that delighted its supporters but alienated millions of Americans by politicizing patriotism and raising serious questions about the president’s use of the military as a political tool.

One of the key questions from the November election is whether the message the President sent to his supporters – and to voters in the middle of the road – with his brave showmanship will be enough to gather the winning coalition or can eventually turn more voters against it.

Trump replied about the ramp walk

The president and his election campaign have spent months trying to portray Democrat Joe Biden as weak and mentally and physically unfit for the rigors of the presidency.

But the White House has refused to be frank about the President’s own health, including a mysterious and unplanned visit to the Walter Reed National Military Health Center last November.

And when critics raise questions about Trump’s slow pace at West Point, he can’t handle it.

The president, who was 74 years old on Sunday, responded to Twitter with his own narration about what happened, which only strengthened the moment.

Panic Button ' when for the Republican Senate

“The road that I went down after West Point’s speech. My commencement was very long & steep, had no grip and, most importantly, very slippery. The last thing I would do was” fall “on Fake News to have fun with my last ten legs ran to flat ground. Momentum! “The president wrote in an early tweet on Sunday morning.

West Point’s graduation continues even though cadets have taken part in online learning since March since the academy was in New York, one of the hardest hit regions during the pandemic.

The president explained in April that he planned to attend the graduation in person, despite criticism warning that he was putting cadets at risk because they were called back for socially distant events.

Ahead of the campaign meeting in Tulsa on Saturday, participants were required to sign a waiver that they would not sue the President’s campaign if they were infected with a virus, a situation that sparked criticism that Trump was putting people on board and people. they will meet in society – at risk to advance their own political requirements.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
