Trump is no surprise
Studying the Donald Trump case does not need much effort. It is an unexpected surprise that Trump made it to the White House, winning the American people’s votes. The man swept all American states, which reflects the new public trend in the USA and the dominance of severe rightist sentiments. Many political analysts, media figures and ordinary people considered electing Donald Trump as US president as a major shock and disaster that would affect the USA and the entire world. As a reaction to his winning, the elections came fast and might continue to accelerate to the peak until he swears into office the beginning of next year.
For the first time in modern history, negative reactions to electing a US president match domestically and worldwide. Those pessimistic about Trumps’ ideas as well as his racist and narrow visions say that those might lead to violence and hatred. This is a wave that has started dominating many Western societies lately. Trump not only defeated his opponent Hilary Clinton or the democratic party, but also defeated his own republican party, as well as the American media, empires and machines. He also defeated nongovernmental organizations that mobilized their efforts against him, as well as thousands of sports, Hollywood and political celebrities including three former presidents namely Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barak Obama. He is a clear manifestation of the American silent majority that made this change.
What will happen to the USA is purely a domestic concern, though the entire world will be affected. However, both the American people and the world ought to learn two lessons from this experience. Trump succeeded in convincing the Americans that Washington DC and its political icons were corrupt and that those politicians were using them for the best interest in mega companies and Wall Street. It was such a gigantic media machine that made the entire world fear the US, made it arrogantly a world leader, making it interfere in other countries concerns, create tensions, wage wars and kill people, backed by America’s support to such a racist policy. Now, the Americans are suffering from the same and have started to sense the feeling of fear, anxiety, racial discrimination and unknown future.
The world and governments, including Arabs and Muslims, have nobody to blame but themselves because they neglected education and human rights which has resulted in a situation where people line up in long queues outside US embassies for immigration. People have been oppressed by tyrant regimes and the USA seemed as the promised paradise on earth. Arabs have been taking American weapons to fight each other. They have even deposited their wealth in American banks and financial institutions without any sense of shame or consideration to their dignity. They are now reaping what they had already sown. So, why are they upset?
