WELL, whatever your views on ‘PDT’ you must admit that his actions certainly speak louder than his already robust dialogue.
Personally I find this trait enormously refreshing. Over decades of newly elected political leaders literally taking years (if ever) to implement the promises and policies they have been elected on, Trump has already put a number of his most controversial intentions into practice.
The problem is, in an effort to show he means what he says, he is ‘el jefe’ of a political express train that not only ignores stop lights and stations, but is in danger of not even noticing when the tracks run out! As much as I support Trump’s new approach to national leadership, I would like to have seen him taking a rather more cautious route before implementing some of his more risky aspersions.
This doesn’t mean I don’t agree with his policies, ie ‘The Wall’ or barring the residents of certain countries from entering the USA (Saudi Arabia, the biggest terrorist nest of all, glaringly absent from the list!), I most certainly do. It’s the blanket finality of his decisions that worry me.
Things are moving so quickly, that by the time this column goes to press, anything could have happened. Unprecedented rioting all across America.
Trump on the back foot and forced to make concessions to the dissenters. The calling out of the National Guard, civil war, anything. At the time of scribing there is simply no way of knowing. One thing is for sure, many problems and grievances are swiftly coming to a head and at least we no longer have an Islamic sympathiser making the biased decisions we have had to put up with for the previous eight years.
Let’s just hope that the Trump administration doesn’t get so bogged down in legal and constitutional matters that it is unable to function freely. As a final observation, to those who object to the new President’s British visit, I would draw their attention to Mugabe. I didn’t see any petitions or dissenting crowds objecting to visits from this despotic murderer!
