Study Finds Trump, Obama Use Similar Rhetoric
President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama have very few — if any — similarities when it comes to policy direction. And their speaking styles couldn’t be any more different.
So why does a new study find that Trump and Obama use similar rhetoric?
We sorted that out with University of Minnesota Political Science Professor Ronald Krebs. He co-wrote the study that used a computerized content analysis program called Diction to go through some Trump and Obama speeches.
