My Chicago Public Schools Students Give Trump’s Border Wall Address High Grades, Unfortunately

Trump focused on evoking anxiety, heartache, horror, distress, exasperation.  And my students disappointedly began to conclude that Trump achieved his rhetorical purpose:

“He wants to make immigrants sound evil,” Ximena’s table told me.

Disheartened, they recognized that Trump succeeded.
