In all political arenas, presidents have such an eager passion to grip a tight dominion over the populace to gain their endorsement. The American political terrace as well after 2015 has witnessed an excellent apotheosis of the entwined relation between language, power and politics. This article aims at scrutinizing Trump's rhetoric which demonstrates a hidden xenophobic ideology through adopting Critical Discourse Analysis as both an approach and a method to analyze 12 tweets against Illegal Mexican Immigration clustered to highlight the constant attack of Trump chastising the democrats for not helping him keeping the Sothern border safe. The chosen sample is analyzed critically through both Faircoulgh's Three-Dimensional Model and Van Dijk's Ideological Square Model to conclude that Trump's language is a linguistic spin that incorporates a hidden sociopolitical ideology of xenophobia.
