Donald Trump Will Never Make America Great

Updated on September 26, 2017

When geopolitical scholars have to deal with a miscreant US President that is hell-bent going against a belligerent North Korean leader with even more belligerence, then it’s safe to say that global order has deteriorated. If North Korea believes that possessing nuclear weapons is a security matter, then sanctions will unlikely change the country’s mind. Indeed, adding more economic sanctions puts North Korea in a more vulnerable position and gives them more reason to seek protection with nuclear weapons.

India’s detonation of five nuclear blasts in 1998 outraged the world and was followed by economic sanctions slapped onto the country by Bill Clinton. Clinton warned Pakistan not to follow India’s footsteps, but Pakistan defied the US President and matched India’s nuclear bomb tests. Needless to say, what followed next were more sanctions imposed upon the nation.

Donald Trump pledges to the world that he will rip up the Iran Nuclear deal. This sends a clear message to any country with nuclear capabilities to not make any nuclear agreements with the US simply because this uninformed President fails to reasonably agree with the international community.

We all know Trump’s mantra, “My job is to not represent the world, my job is to represent the United States.” Yet with respect to foreign policies, he wants countries to keep guessing what he will do next. He even told Theresa May, Prime Minister of the UK, that the Iran Nuclear deal must be terminated on the condition that he subscribes to his own logic in how the deal was derived. He told Theresa May that at this point in time, the word “no” has to suffice because he has no plan and no format.

In a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, Trump reassured that he would use nuclear weapons against North Korea’s provocative actions. Trump’s DNA may be attributed to a Japanese wise saying, “The idiot that speaks the loudest has no plan.”

Trump doesn’t have any nuclear power policies in developing countries and not a single plan to explore security and economic objectives allowing foreign influence to shape regional disorder. Trump’s argument is that he’s putting America first and presumably making America “great again”. Under Trump, Moscow has been written off as a substantial military threat to the United States even though Russia’s nuclear assets and expertise are sold to the highest bidder demonstrating independence and global dominance.

The international community made the deal with Iran and included curbing Russia’s external channels that provide nuclear technologies to regional powers similar to Iran. One has to achieve a philosophical doctrine that focuses on the heritage of what America was built upon in terms of the expansion of their economy throughout the world to gain a better understanding of this situation.

Trump is simply a spoiled brat and is unable to come to terms with the fact that the containment of Iran is a primary objective under its Middle Eastern agenda. Trump ignores his own geopolitical failures with his own pride that establishes his own worth in how the swamp views him. Trump pontificates that American influence has increased as a sole barrier within his own logic. However the truth is that American influence has weaned and American threats are no longer credible.

What are the sequences that achieve this theory? Let’s begin with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s comment, “Americans won’t strike (North) Korea, because not only do they suspect, but know for sure that Pyongyang has nuclear weapons.” Who gave the Russians that sentimentality? Trump has stressed that military threats against North Korea are on the table. He has warned the rogue nation that if they choose to deviate from what they are told, then their only option would result in ultimate destruction.

There are five motives for North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear program. The breakdown of the global non-proliferation regime; the erosion of regional security; domestic imperatives; a response to changes in American foreign policy; and the increasing supply of nuclear technology. States pursue nuclear programs to increase their security against foreign opponents. A country can also use nuclear weapons as political tools to advance their propaganda and bureaucratic and political interests. Finally, even the acquisition of nuclear weapons and harsh criticism a country may face at least provides a country with a recognized sense of identity.

Let’s rewind and take a look at history. Akhenaten was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty. He wanted to make Egypt great with one God at the state’s forefront. That God was his son. Akhenaten was so immersed in his beliefs that he created regional destabilization in hopes of expanding the economy. He only looked inward rather than achieving the global revenue that was becoming ever more accessible for nations with transportation capabilities. Even with his adversaries, Akhenaten gave these petty leaders plated-gold ornaments rather than real gold itself. This signified a multilateral world no different than Russia’s and China’s quest to dominate their local regions for the solidification of their respective economies.

Donald Trump is a spoiled brat born rich. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comment that this is “only a hiccup” may be true. The worst travesty is that he’s disallowing African-American to express their freedom. This in itself shows that his priorities are out of line with American DNA and economic growth.

Ronald Reagan empowered the people of America, even in Alabama. He made them feel wanted, he made them feel respected, and he made them feel great. If an African American can not kneel before God then what does that say about their ancestors that gave up their life to provide the right of free speech for all Americans worthy under God? If they are worthy under God then African Americans are no less equal than any other individuals in America. It was Trump that chose to make this an issue, and he will rightfully pay the price. Historians only have to look back at Akhenaten; there isn’t a single building in Egypt today that bears his name. Under Trump, America can not be great. The word "great" has no literary meaning because the word itself is attached to one single word: "again".

      The man never had a plan to fix anything and by the time he leaves it will require a complete overhaul to make sense of any of our institutions.

      This is a very thought provoking article. The good point about Trump is he is surrounded by very capable generals in Kelley, Mattis, and McMasters. However, the leader of North Korea is surrounded by people who view him as a deity. No one can rationalize with him; it's his way or Hell.

      India is a democracy like the U.S., and historically, democracies do not fight one another. They posed no threat to the U.S. Yet, that is not the objective of N. Korea. Several U.S. presidents warned of "nuclear black-mail" occurring in our future, and that's where we are.

      I'm not certain that President Trump's threats are without merit. He said in his campaign: "What's the use of having nuclear weapons if you don't use them?" He also said, "I love all war, especially, nuclear war."

      But you hit it on the spot: No one can figure out what that man thinks. Maybe Trump and Kim should enter into a boxing ring and have it out once and for all and spare us all from nuclear holocaust.
