Trump is a dangerous fool, but is Hillary any better?
You see, Trump has been brazen in his campaign, exciting supporters while confounding critics and the liberals alike. His rhetoric has rubbed many the wrong way and Rubio’s loss was a major setback for the clique of Republicans trying to stop Trump, whose populist anti-immigrant and anti-muslim stance, they fear, will split the party.
Trump is on record disparaging the migrant communities, more so the Latinos and the migrant Africans. His threat to stop Muslims from moving to the US, his threat to deport Africans and his unrelenting call to build a wall along the border of the US and “our good neighbours the Mexicans” has caused loud murmurs and much tension between the two countries.
the US is deemed great because of its uniqueness. No nation on the globe boasts of the multi-cultural pluralism that the US does. Jews, Germans, Irish, Russians, Africans, Latinos, Arabs all call it home. And because of their diversity and talents in various spheres, fused together over the ages and backed by a working system and successive regimes which have been all too keen to get the best of what they have, America has stood head and shoulder above other nations so much so that when it sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold.
And now matters have been made more difficult that with the looming departure of Barack Obama from his White House address. The “fine gentleman of politics” may be succeeded by a rather rash, bareknuckle conservative in Trump, who may jeopardise the US-G7 relations, Usmexico ties and, of course the Us-africa relations.
Obama, before his ascension to the Oval Office, made it clear that he would take a more liberal-diplomatic prong approach in dealing with word issues, particularly the threat of nuclear weapons emerging from discontented countries like North Korea, as well as the economic threat his country faced from a re-emergent China. Unlike Obama, Trump is brazen, combative and wants matters addressed immediately and militarily. His combative approach and overbearing demeanour, it is feared, could not only make the US lose traditional allies but also leave it exposed both internally and externally.
In the 21st century, the re-emergence of an arms race fuelled by North Korea’s redboenlalildontruamndp. insecurity and driven by terrorist groups such as ISIS in the Far East, Al-shabaab in East Africa and Boko Haram in West Africa requires a multipronged approach to deal with. The leadership on this will come from the most powerful man on the earth – the US President– who must convince all nations to work together.
However, with the Republicans not too comfortable with Trump leading the charge, it appears it could be too late to avoid him from earning the party’s nod to face off with Hillary Clinton. And whichever way it goes, the American people, and, of course, the international community, will usher in either an established Democratic insider in Clinton as the new tenant at White House or the gloating and showboating Trump. Either way, history
