Abstract [en]

During recent years, America’s attitude toward immigrants has become increasingly excluding. Previous

research shows that it is common for illegal immigration and crime to be related to one another,

although research shows that there is no relationship between them. The president of the United

States, Donald Trump, is known for dividing the American people from the illegal immigrants. Therefore,

this study analyses how Trump portraits the American people and the illegal immigrants. Further,

the study analyses how he divides these groups from each other. The study is based on a qualitative

content analysis where six speeches made by Trump is analysed. The results of the study show

that Trump positively portrays the American people by saying they possess unique values. Unlike

this, he portrays the illegal immigrants as people that commit crimes such as murder and sexual

crimes. Trump also portraits the two groups by dividing them from each other. He does this by giving

a positive picture of the American people at the same time as he gives a negative picture of the illegal

immigrants. Further, he divides the groups by creating a feeling of unity between the American people

through talking about shared culture, values, and an unique history.

Abstract [en]

Under de senaste åren har USA:s inställning blivit alltmer exkluderande gentemot immigranter. Tidigare

forskning visar att det är vanligt att illegal immigration och brottslighet ställs i relation till varandra trots att forskning visar att det inte finns ett samband däremellan. Amerikas president Donald

Trump omtalad för att skapa en uppdelning mellan det amerikanska folket och de illegala immigranterna.

I relation till detta analyserar denna studie hur Trump framställer det amerikanska folket

och de illegala immigranterna samt hur han separerar grupperna från varandra. Studien är baserad på

en kvalitativ innehållsanalys där sex av Trumps tal analyseras. Studiens resultat har visat på att Trump

ofta framställer det amerikanska folket på ett positivt sätt genom att säga att deras värderingar är

unika. Till skillnad från detta framställs ofta de illegala immigranterna som mördare och sexualförbrytare.

Han framställer grupperna även genom att separera dem från varandra genom att ge en positiv

bild av det amerikanska folket samtidigt som han ger en negativ bild av de illegala immigranterna.

Vidare separerar han grupperna genom att framkalla känslor av gemenskap hos det amerikanska folket

genom att tala om att de delar en gemensam kultur, värderingar och historia som är unik.
