Abstract

Language plays a pivotal role in constructing identity and ideology. It shapes the people’s ideas and beliefs about specific perspectives. This research is mainly concerned with constructed ideologies through discourse. The present study is based on the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” written by Michael Wolff. The approach for present research is qualitative in nature and for analysis; different extracts are taken from the book. It adopts Fairclough’s (1992) three-dimensional model for analysis which includes textual, discursive practice and social practice analyses. The study reveals that a constructed ideology of Trump is portrayed in this book, in which, he is presented as ineligible and unfit person for the post of president of United States. Thus, in conclusion, the value of discourse in conveying the specific ideology cannot be underestimated.
