Persuasion in this paper is dealt with as a fundamental human process that influences almost every form of social contact. Trump and Johnson, as politicians, aim to control societies’ opinions and attitudes in order to govern the country's affairs. Social distance is a new phenomenon to make people stay apart. The emergence of the new epidemic (covid-19) causes the death to a lot of people when coronavirus is spreading all over the world.

Consequently, it is hypothesized that repetition is the most one of stylistic device which used to convince people with social distance. The current paper has reached to number of conclusions, one of which is that parallelism is the most stylistic device which is employed by Trump and Johnson to convince people with social distance in the analyzed data.
