Let me tell you something, this is the most pathetic, stupid introduction I have ever seen! Sad! I kid you not, we need to report this person to Ringle’s founders, and no one does that better than me, believe me.
I have gotten so fed up with this tutor-curator named Diana lately, I kid you not. I tell you what, I’m going to make a new course material. It will be a very good material, and I will fire people like Diana from the service. And quite frankly, terrible tutors like Diana are just as bad as Crooked Hillary.
I tell you what, if we can’t make this material great again, I will design a new course material. A “YUGE” material. It will be so good—and let me tell you something—people will say it is a very good material. I will have the best course material, I kid you not. It will be so good.
And you know what? I will build a great, great course material. I tell you what, this material will be so amazing. It will be the best material. In fact—It will be so great, I’m going to name it after myself. I’m going to call it The Trump Book and it will be the greatest. Isn't it the greatest? Am I right?
In case you couldn’t tell, I was mimicking Donald Trump’s rhetorical style. Donald Trump is like a cat. You either love cats or you don’t; you either love Trump or you don’t. You can make a case for or against him. But one thing that can never be refuted is that he is not the most eloquent speaker.
So today, I challenge you to write better than Mr. Trump. Imagine that you are an editor of Mr. Trump’s speech. How would you revise it?
I know it’s all in you. You’ve got this. Let’s make your writing great again.
Best, Greatest, the most amazing, and YUGE wishes,
Read the following excerpts from the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on September 26, 2016. Then make notes how you would revise his remarks.
Donald Trump’s Speech
Response regarding Donald Trump’s tax return
As far as my tax returns, you don’t lear that much from tax returns. That I can tell you. You learn a lot from financial disclosure. And you should go down and take a look at that. The other thing, I’m extremely under-leveraged. The report that said $650—which, by the way, a lot of friends of mine that know my business say, boy, that’s really not a lot of money. It’s not a lot of money relative to what I had.
The buildings that were in question, they said in the same report, which was actually, it wasn’t even a bad story, to be honest with you, but the buildings are worth $3.9 billion. And the $650 isn’t even on that. But it’s not $650. It’s much less than that. But I could give you a list of banks, I would—if that would help you, I would give you a list of banks. These are very fine institutions, very fine banks, I could do that very quickly.
I am very under leveraged. I have a great company. I have a tremendous income. And the reason I say that is not in a braggadocios way. It’s because it’s about time that this country had somebody running it that has an idea about money.
Response regarding cyberattack
Moderator’s question: “Who is behind it and how do we fight it?”
As far as the cyber, I agree to parts of what Secretary Clinton said. We should be better than anybody else, and perhaps we’re not. I don’t think anybody knows it was Russia that broke into the DNC. She’s saying Russia, Russia, Russia, but I don’t—maybe it was, I mean, it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, OK?
We came in with the Internet, we came up with the Internet, and I think Secretary Clinton and myself agree very much, when you look at what ISIS is doing with the Internet, they’re beating us at our own game. ISIS. So we have to get very, very tough on cyber, and cyber warfare. It is—it is a huge problem. I have a son. He’s 10 years old. He has computers. He is so good with these computers, it’s unbelievable. The security aspect of cyber is very very tough. And maybe it’s hardly doable.
제 말 잘 들으시죠, 이건 제가 여지껏 본 도입부 중 가장 볼품 없고, 멍청한 도입부입니다! 슬플 정도입니다! 진심으로, 이걸 쓴 사람을 Ringle의 창업자들에게 신고해야겠습니다. 그리고 그걸 나보다 잘 할 수 있는 사람은 없습니다, 절 믿으시지요.
최근에 이 Diana라는 튜터, 큐레이터에 아주 질려버렸습니다. 진심입니다. 제가 새로운 수업 자료를 만들겠습니다. 굉장히 좋은 수업 자료를 말입니다. 그리고 Diana 같은 사람들을 해고시켜 버리겠습니다. 솔직히 말하자면, Diana같은 끔찍한 튜터들은 부정직한 힐러리만큼이나 나쁩니다.
만약 이 수업 자료를 다시 위대하게 만들 수 없다면, 새로운 수업 자료를 만들겠습니다. 아주 "크으으은" 수업 자료말입니다. 너무 잘 만들어서, 정말로 말이죠, 사람들이 정말 좋은 수업 자료라고 할겁니다. 정말로, 가장 뛰어난 수업 자료를 만들겠습니다. 정말 좋을겁니다.
그리고 말이지요, 저는 엄청 엄청 좋은 수업 자료를 만들겁니다. 정말이지요. 수업 자료가 너무나 어메이징 할겁니다. 최고의 수업 자료일겁니다. 진짜 수업 자료가 너무나 위대해서 제 이름을 따서 지을겁니다. "트럼프 북"이라고 부를거고 이건 정말 가장 위대할겁니다. 위대하지 않습니까? 제 말이 맞지 않습니까?
혹시 헷갈리셨는지 모르겠지만 제가 도날드 트럼프의 수사적 스타일을 베낀 겁니다. 도날드 트럼프는 정말 고양이와도 같은 존재지요. 고양이는 좋아하거나, 싫어하거나 둘 중 하나니까요. 트럼프도 정말 좋아하거나, 싫어하거나 둘 중 하나죠. 트럼프를 지지하거나, 반대하거나 둘 중 하나고요. 그렇지만 갑론을박할 수 없는 사실은 트럼프가 웅변의 달인은 아니라는 점이지요.
그래서 오늘 여러분께 도전 과제를 내려고 합니다. 트럼프보다 더 글을 잘 쓸 수 있을까요? 만약 도널드 트럼프의 에디터라면 그의 연설을 어떻게 수정하실 것인 가요?
여러분께서는 할 수 있으시리라 믿습니다. 여러분의 영어 작문 실력을 다시 위대하게 만들어봅시다!
