Antimetabole


Antimetabole (an’-ti-me-ta’-bo-lee): Repetition of words, in successive clauses, in reverse grammatical order.

Troubles are problems! Problems are troubles! No problems, no troubles. No troubles, no problems.

But so much of contemporary life in the USA is just one big troubling problem, especially with current Presidential politics.

What seems like every day, there is at least one Executive Order signed by President Trump that dismantles common sense and undermines compassion and is solely premised on the power of the Presidential pen: the power to erase each and every vestige of the policies enacted by Obama during his Presidency.
