How Trump Presidency will change the World in 10 Ways.
President Donald Trump is not your typical type of leader. He talks tough, and tweets tougher. He makes demands on Congress and state governments, needles foreign nations and launches broad attacks on the press. But, should people really be scared of Trump?
Lately, there has been growing fear of President Trump’s foreign policy in the United states and around the world. Here are All the Terrifying Things That Donald Trump Did Lately and reasons why you too should be Worried, irrespective of where you currently reside in the world.
Declared his Openness to Revive Nuclear Arms race around the World.
Undoubtedly, increasing the nuclear arsenal around the world brings us closer to a world war, but president Trump doesn’t appear to care. According to his tweet; “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes”. He went further to state; “Let it be an arms race… We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.’’
If a nuclear war break out, no one on earth is safe! The stories of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during world war II still sends shivers down the spine of anyone who had read about it.
Ready to Drop Some Bombs on North Korea.
President Trump has never hidden his eagerness to attack with full military force nations he feels “threatens the United State” especially the North Korea. The problem is, that’s exactly what the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, has been yearning for. Most world leaders including former US President Barack Obama had largely ignored the North Korean provocations, instead using sanctions to quell Kim’s rants. But Trump, who appears to reason more like Kim, seems to be eager to edge the North Korean leader to go overboard with his antics, so that he (Trump) will feel vindicated when he says the world is not doing enough to deal with North Korea and probably give him the leeway to drop some bomb on them.
President Trump has made statements like; “North Korea will be met with fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,”. Unfortunately, threatening messages like this from Trump are always followed by more missile lunches from the North Korea.
World security experts have also warned that the North Korea might be showing only a fraction of what they actually have in their arsenal, so the United States attacking them based on perceived superior military power could be catastrophic as they must surely retaliate. Again, given how fast and immediate, the effect of nuclear bombing can be felt, it is safe to say that nobody in the world is safe. Don’t forget, the North Korea is said to have recently tested a hydrogen bomb which is a much more powerful than an atomic weapon. The energy released in a Hydrogen bomb is several magnitudes higher than an Atom bomb. Hydrogen bombs can devastate whole cities in one explosion.
Climatic Change Denier.
With the so many natural disasters around the world directly linked to climatic change. President Trump believes it’s only a hoax which does not worth all the efforts put in place by world leaders to control it. Trump’s white house had recently announced that the United States will be pulling out of the landmark Paris climate agreement which could be a big problem around the world as the US is an important partner in the agreement.
Antagonizes World Leaders.
Aside having not-so-wonderful phone conversations with some nation leaders after resuming office as US president, including the now infamous “this was the worst call by far” rant directed at Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, President Trump has had several altercation that has shown he has next to no respect for leaders around the world. For instance, he had accused London’s first Muslim mayor of being indifferent to terrorism, just hours after a terrorist attack in London. And not forgetting the big shove at a NATO meeting where he shoved the prime minister of Montenegro out of his way, so that he could stand at the front of a group of NATO leaders.
Ready to Engage in Economic War with China.
Mr Trump has always bragged about his prowess in beating China in business which he aims to bring aggressively to the US presidency. The problem is nobody is really going to win a trade war between two world economic powers. It is like courting global disaster. The two economic giants of the world being involved in a trade war would be disastrous around the world.
Appeared to be Careless with Intelligence Information.
Information from the US news media suggests that President Trump might be careless with intelligence information and this is scary considering that he has access to the so called Nuclear football which could be used to lunch a weapon of mass destruction within minutes. Getting the codes in the wrong hands will surely be disastrous.
Ready to break up Nations for Selfish Interests.
Trump has shown he is willing to go to any level, including stoking diplomatic rows to get whatever he wants. Apparently in an attempt to get the attention of China, he (as a President-elect) had held a ten-minute phone conversation with Taiwan’s president. Before his call, the leaders of the United States and Taiwan had not spoken since 1979. This was because China does not recognize Taiwan as an independent state, but rather, a breakaway the leaders of the United States and Taiwan had not spoken since 1979. Preventing the island from achieving internationally recognized independence is one of the top priorities of Chinese foreign policy — one that its military has prepared to go to war over. The call prompted an immediate diplomatic protest from China, followed by reassurances from the then sitting president (Obama) that no official change in policy had been intended.
There has also been allegations of this divide and conquer approach on several other nations in the past few months.
Despite the fact that America was largely built by immigrants from around the world, President Trump has never hidden his hatred for immigrants. The most consequential decision President Donald Trump made on immigration in his first year in office wasn’t about the wall, or who’s going to pay for it, or anything else he talked about incessantly on the campaign trail but his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). DACA has protected nearly 800,000 young adult unauthorized immigrants from deportation and allowed them to work legally since 2012. The immigrants protected through DACA grew up in the US; people might not assume they are unauthorized immigrants, and they might not have even known it themselves until they were teenagers. The program was supposed to give them a chance to build a life in the United States however Tump doesn’t care about disruption and divisions it will cause in families around the US. Simply put, Trump doesn’t want the US to be friends or kind to anybody.
Promotes Hate Against Muslim Communities.
Donald Trump spent much of his presidential campaign promising to use executive power to discriminate against Muslims. Upon election, he promptly banned immigration from several Muslim-majority nations. He has made and endorsed several statement on and off Twitter that promotes stigmatization of Muslims around the world. This attitude definitely does not promote world peace
- Suggests Approval of Extrajudicial Killings as an anti-drug policy.
President Trump during a call with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte appears not only unfazed by Duterte’s bloody method of fight against drugs, but actively supportive of them. Recall that Durtete has likened his campaign to rid his nation of drug users to Adolph Hitler’s attempt to rid the planet of Jews: Earlier this year, Duterte noted that the press had portrayed him as the “cousin of Hitler,” then explained that he took little offense at the analogy — after all, whatever else you might think of the Führer, the man was very good at exterminating the impure. “There are 3 million drug addicts [in the Philippines]. I’d be happy to slaughter them,” Duterte said. It simply spells doom for any world leader to support this!
Not forgetting the fact that Mr Trump has repeatedly suggested the stealing of a soverign nation’s natural resources. Trump has long maintained that one of the biggest mistakes the United States made in Iraq was that it did not expropriate the nation’s most valuable natural resource. The president is fairly certain that, had the U.S. stolen Iraq’s oil, the region would be far more stable than it is today. Trump reiterated this view in his speech at the CIA on his first weekend in office — and then suggested that his administration might have a chance to rectify America’s great error.
These and many more are the reasons why the whole world should be wary about Trump’s America.
