Trump And The War On Windmills!


Trump seems like Don Quixote, who invents enemies and fight them and believe to be victorious. It is true that Trump has succeeded in the real estate business. But the administration’s policy is much bigger than estate companies and alcohol factories. However, this does not mean that the world had reached the stage morality has become embedded in politics, but cannot also ignore the fact that the world accumulated a lot of experiences especially in the past years, and learnt that the destructive ideologies based on exclusion lead to wars and disasters.

Trump might think that the populist rhetoric he had used during the elections will enable him to run the state administration in that way.

Many people believe that the American society is moving towards a critical period of its history. The American public began the uprising against the Trump may be the spring of America!

America had witnessed significant events in the fifties and sixties of like the civil right movements.Senator McCarthy emerged as the primary spokesman of the right-wing and sought to put in jail all who contradicts his views on the pretext of being communists.

But Trump went much further than McCarthy. He appeared to contradict the policy of the American political heritage.He, for instance, calls to return to isolation, which was one of Monroe President in the middle of the 19th century. And if the doctrine of separation was possible in these times, no one believes its practical
in the age of globalisation which makes the world connected as never.

It sounds paradox that while Trump calls to isolate America and build a wall on the Mexican border, a Chinese train travelled for the first time from China to England and reached in 18days in a kind of modern silk road.

Nevertheless, if Trump policy resisted at home, Europe would be likely the biggest challenge to his policy. We have heard speeches in almost all European countries which opposed his policy in the Muslim ban.

That’s also that Europe was sceptical towards his policy regarding the NATO and the European union.

However, it is evident that the American society is much polarised now. And nobody can predict where the thing goes in the future. But No doubt Trump fights a war he can never win. And no doubt that he creates an atmosphere of a clash between cultures that needed time to be cleaned.
