I am a native speaker from Australia. I mainly speak British English.
That's grammatically correct, but normally we don't use it for people. It's normally for things like countries, time periods, institutions, etc.
E.g. The country has been scourged by famine in recent years.
Thank you, thank you! I heard trump using this word this morning and had to google the pronunciation just to be sure. Your assumption about his speech writers was exactly my thought! I find that wonderfully cathartic. 😀 Thank you!
I've never been able to understand american presidents so clear in the past. With Obama, for instance, I was able to understand 70 to 80 % of his speechs, due to his usage of complex words and sentences. But with Trump.... he speaks for low minded people, and that makes us, english students, easier to get what he says. I almost understand every single word from him. He also repeats himself in case he wasn´t clear enough, like: (Read in Trump's voice and accent): "I can tell you, he is a nice guy, I know him for a long time, nice guy, I can tell you". He is making it easy, isn't he? :)
Oh...my president. When it comes to language and communication, his skills are certainly unique. But when it comes to presidential discombobulation, I believe George W. Bush is still our nation's undisputed champion. =)
