Donald J. Trump who won American Presidential Elections of 2016 has been received as a great shock to the world as he has been a staunch racist, sexist and self-obsessed American businessman considering his past.
America is now going to reflect through the actions of Donald Trump and future is as uncertain plus temporary as Trump’s statements.
It seems American public has gone blind to the consequences of empowering a biased narcissist to deal with world-affairs more like a business deal. Michelle Obama tried to make people see what the reality is in her speech about Donald Trump as:
“I don’t know perhaps to live in life high up in a tower in a world of exclusive clubs measuring success by wins and losses the number of zeros in your bank account perhaps you just develop a set different set of values may be with so little exposure to people who are different than you …. it’s easy to see this country as us versus them and it’s easy to dehumanize them to treat them with contempt… this candidate thinks certain immigrants are criminals instead of folks who work their fingers to the bone to give their kids better life to help build the greatest nation on earth… he thinks we should be afraid of our Muslim brothers and sisters because he really has no idea who they are he doesn’t understand that they are us they’re our friends our family…why he sees veterans during the wounds of war as weak… it’s easy for him to mark people with disabilities because he’s unable to see their strength and their contributions maybe that’s why he means and humiliate women as if they were objects meant solely for pleasure and entertainment rather than human beings worthy of love and respect he just doesn’t understand us maybe that’s why he calls communities like the one where I was raised hell…”
Neither the eye-opening speeches of Michelle Obama not the facts stated by Hillory Clinton could change their “so-called educated” minds. Even Hitler failed to make Americans learn from history. Voila! Trump too doesn’t want to invest much in education sector.
Trump aims to make the world specifically China, Japan, Mexico pay back America for previous debts that they are in. Trump who came with an idea to “Make America Great Again” against Hillary’s slogan of “Stronger Together” is unrealistically enough a businessman, as he claims it himself, who dwells in loses and profits. It appears Imperialism might return and the idea “Beginning of the end” is a real thing.
Donald Trump seems to be an insecure American who fears immigrants including Muslims, African American, POWs, Latinos, people with disabilities and what not. He denigrates people as mentally sick when it comes to asking him for a reason to deal with gun holders and violent people. He is a staunch sexist for he disparaged Miss Universe and had been abusive towards women. Trump’s wife exposed in an interview that she kept her own pregnancy a secret for six months and took leave for only 3 weeks just for the fear of getting replaced by another women. On the other side, Donald Trump views “Pregnancy as a wonderful thing but an inconvenience for a business”. This again makes it clear how he thinks only about winning, profit and convenience in business.
Trump’s Victory speech was full of nothing where in the beginning he, as in tongue-in-cheek manner, celebrates through the expression,
“Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”
Moving on he summons “To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people” to “bind the wounds of division” which again reverberates some double meanings behind the statement.
To those who did not vote him he offers with a statement as,
“I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.”
Though in his Victory speech, he talks of unity beyond race, religion and boundaries, it is yet to be proved in future, whether it will only be an American dream or Humanitarian dream.
“It is a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people, and serve the people it will.
Working together, we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the American dream. I’ve spent my entire life in business, looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people all over the world.”
Here, he changes his stance of maintaining good relations with the world yet only time can tell if he prefers economy or humanity.
“Our veterans are incredible people. We will embark upon a project of national growth and renewal. I will harness the creative talents of our people, and we will call upon the best and brightest to leverage their tremendous talent for the benefit of all. It is going to happen. We have a great economic plan. We will double our growth and have the strongest economy anywhere in the world. At the same time, we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. We will be. We will have great relationships.”
Furthering his speech, he ends it up on a positive note which can either be another false hope or a reality.
“I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone.
All people and all other nations. We will seek common ground, not hostility; partnership, not conflict.”
He ends his oration in gratitude for his parents, sisters and brothers as well as his partners including Chris, Rudy, Lara and so on.
