Abstract
The victory speech of presidential election in the United States is given by the new president after a long and tough election journey. It will not only reveal the identity of the new president but also conclude the summary of the election, the joy of the result and new political views. As a president with unique individual characteristics and lots of controversies, the victory speech of president Trump should be focused. Theme and thematic progression patterns are mainly used to analyze the meaning and structure of discourses. By this method, the content and structure of Trump’s victory speech can be better understood. Appropriated theme and thematic progression patterns will be helpful to convey the information. Parallel and concentrated progression patterns are used to emphasize some important information. Continuous and crossed progression patterns are helpful for the development of the speech.
