SIROUS ABEDINI.

Abstract
Racism is defined (Van Dijk, 1993a) as a specific social system of domination in which ethnic groups and their members (i.e.majority) abuse their
power in various ways in interaction with other ethnic groups and their members (i.e. minority). Modern racism is hidden, so finding racism needs
special strategies in new texts and discourses. Elites have power, control, and access to media and they influence people. Van Dijk represents
Structures and strategies (reproduction of racism theory, 1993a) finding racism which consists of surface Structures and meaning (deep) Structures.
In this research, Donald Trumpís speeches about immigrants in the election (2016, SEP) taken from New York Times were analyzed based on Van
Dijkís structures and strategies to find these structures in Trumpís speeches. The findings of this research show that Trump considers religion,
nationality, and culture of immigrants as well. Moreover, many surfaces and meaning structures are found in Trumpís lectures with different
frequencies. The results of this research are concordant with Van Dijkís researches on racism.

Key words: Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), Elites, Donald Trump, Teun.A.Van Dijk, Racism, Surface and Meaning (Deep) Structures
