The researcher used qualitative method to describe the types of presupposition trigger and to explain the presuppositions coming from each trigger found. The researcher used the theory of Levinson’s presupposition triggers (1983) to analyze the data. This study started by transcribing the utterances of one of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign speech video to collect the data. Then, the analyzing steps were done by finding the triggers of presupposition, categorizing the triggers of presupposition, analyzing the triggers to find out the presupposition implied inside the utterances, evaluating the result, and the last concluding the result. The result showed that there were so many presupposition triggers found inside the speech. Meanwhile, the researcher scopes the findings by sorting out the types of presupposition triggers which has major appearance inside the speech. There are four kinds of presupposition triggers to be analyzed further which are definite descriptions, change of state verbs, iteratives, and temporal clause.
