It also allows us to see which terms were used by Trump but not by any president prior. The words below constitute that list.
sprawl, ignored, windswept, overseas, tombstones, rusted-out, trapped, neighborhoods, landscape, flush, carnage, unrealized, robbed, stolen, likes, listening, hardships, transferring, politicians, reaped, stops, subsidized, disagreements, bedrock, Islamic, reinforce, solidarity, unstoppable, brown, mysteries, arrives, politicians, hire, infrastructure, trillions, depletion, allowing, disrepair, redistributed, tunnels, stealing, ravages, issuing, bleed
There have been variants on those words used in the past: politician (William Henry Harrison, 1841), ravage (Richard Nixon, 1969) or hardship (used in both of Barack Obama's). Others, though, are totally unique to Trump.
- "This American carnage stops right here and stops right now."
- "…rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation"
- "Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities…"
- "…the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential."
- "whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots…"
- "America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay…"
Every president introduces some new words, of course. In 1981, Ronald Reagan introduced some bleak ones: affliction, terrorism, crushes. But he also introduced a number of positive ones: entrepreneurs, heroism, self-sufficient, eloquence. And: rainbow.
