President Donald Trump: My Views
Donald Trump, seen from down under
Welcome to our article (68) President Donald Trump, my views
Dear readers, these are the views of a normal simple man, that wants to look at what is happening in the world today, and then, talk about what he sees and what it might mean, one of the ways to do that is to follow important people. So, today we are going to write about the new American President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has been very busy the first ten days in his office as president. He comes on the news just about every time you turn on the TV, signing some important documents. Looks like that he wants to run the USA his own way, which is completely different from the outgoing president Barak Obama administration, which did not seem to do much at all. One of the most controversial document that he has signed, was banning entry to USA to people from several countries, this sudden banning caught many people off guard, even some people that thought they were okay, because they had been in America before, and perhaps even people that have their residence in America, and call themselves Americans now, whether they had an American passport or not were stopped at the airports, most times just before they were leaving, so, this has inconvenienced many people, it created chaos and worries for these travelling people, since they did not see it coming, so suddenly.
My views here are like this observation, does the American President have all this power that can stop anything just by signing a document? This to me seems strange, because only a dictator can do that, but Donald trump in not a dictator, because he has been elected by the people, so, there could be rules in the constitution that might limits is power?
Anyhow, when we look at all the American news put together, from Australia the land down under, it would be hard to say, if what is happening in America are good news or bad news. Because it is hard to see, if what is being done from President Trump, it is going to affect the safety and the economy and everything else, in a positive or negative way. We know that Donald Trump believes that what he is doing is going to make America great again, but that is what he believes and there is a good chance that he will succeed. But in my views, it is questionable, if this is the right wat to start with.
In Australia, like in any other part of the world, people are not sure about what could happen next, you see, every time you change something drastically, it will affect other surrounding things, this is a what would happen next, to what degree and to what effect anything will change, we just should wait and see. If it turns out to be good, then Donald Trump is great, if it turns out no good, then the American people have made the wrong choice, by giving America to be led by President Donald Trump.
America of Donald Trump
Today a lot of people in the world are worried about what is happening in America, because America for a long time has been leading the western world, so, they are worried because, now under Donald Trump leadership America is changing direction, so, there are many people worried and protesting, in America and in the rest of the western world as well, but they seem to get nowhere, since Trump does not take any notice of them, he just wants to run America as if it is a large business company. One of the main concerns that we see from here, is that he removes anybody from the executive that does not agree with him. These people he removes may be those people that have a very good idea, about what could happen in a negative way, if they do certain things the way Trumps wants them done, so, they speak out and in turn Trumps removes them from office.
Now, whether Trumps is making a grave mistake by removing these people, we don’t know, because we need to wait and see the outcome of these actions. Anyhow, Trumps continues to sign document to change anything that he believes needs to be changed, believing that he is doing the right things, that need to be done, after all, he has been voted in by the people of America to be their President. So, the people that have voted him in, have already accepted most of his policies that he is now signing and making them laws.
But that is not all, because presently while I am writing this article, President Trump and the prime minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull have had a conversation on the phone, about some refugees that America agreed to take under the Obama administration, so, while Trump says that he will honour that agreement, he then goes on tweeter and tweets that that was a dumb agreement, that Obama agreed to carry out. So, one may wonder what is going to happen next. I believe that this issue is going to last a while, because it is not going to be easy to solve.
Personally speaking, I like Donald Trump policies, because they are aimed at stopping this wave of unwanted emigrant, that pop up anywhere in the world. Mainly he wants to stop the Mexicans to cross the border into USA, and he wants to stop those people from the Middle East to come to America, and then, they could turn into terrorists and kill people and blow things up, so, he may have a good point there. But the way that he does those things make us all worried, because we have never seen it done this way.
Perhaps to understand why Donald Trump wants to do that. We should look at what is happening in the world today, because also the world is doing strange things that a few decades ago, were thought to be wrong. The world today is going global, this globalization is very likely making the world less safe, because there are too many terrorists that are taking advantage of it. Well this is one of the issues that I believe have made President Trump do what he is doing. Now, let us look and discuss what else has changed lately that Donald Trump could not accept, because we would like to understand whether Donald Trump may have got his policies right, or not.
What Trump may believe
In my opinion, President Donald Trump believes in running America the old ways, he sees that these new ways, of letting people move freely from one country to another, creates lots of problems for everybody and specially America, so, he wants to stop it, if he can. Or perhaps keep it controlled like it was done a few decades ago, so, he is taking drastic measures by banning some people to enter the USA, and he wants to build a wall at the boundary with Mexico, which would prevent more Mexicans coming to America illegally.
Now, let us try to understand why all these things are happening today, and how it all started to unfold, and the reasons that has created this large emigration problem, since in the past it was easy to control, and people accepted this control. But, today this illegal emigration is a worldwide problem, because in Europe it is a lot worse than America. It also seems to me, that this illegal emigration may have started in Europe, when they created the common market and people could move from one country to another, if they were member of the common market. Now, that has worked well for a while, since there were only a few countries involved, while no outsiders would be allowed in.
But then, things started to change, and more countries became members of the European Market, some of these countries that became members, had a lower wage and standard of living, so, their people being now free to move within the common market they did, but because the change was gradual at the beginning, the common marked could absorb them soon enough without creating problems. This was the way of how all this free movement of people was accepted at that time. After a while this movement of people became out of control, since today there are a lot of people, that come from far away countries, that don’t belong to Europe and they should not be there. The world today is becoming an idealistic world, and people are free to go from one country to another. But that does not seem to be right, at least for the time being because this creates a lot of problems for the people themselves.
So, I believe that President Donald Trump, does not like to see America become a targeted country like Europe, where everybody wants to emigrate, just because they see an advantage for themselves, and they don’t care about the native people of that country, which they go to. We will talk about this in another article soon. But let me say this, President Donald Trump may be right to stop uncontrolled migration, because of the many problems they bring to the country they go to.
I believe that I have said enough in this article. See you in our next article, which could be about, the Italian homeless, and the Italian migration and other problems. You see, people have already problems of their own. But now they have this illegal emigration problem as well. You see, they both need government help, so, the refugees create a bigger problem.
See you soon.

Some more Italian concerns, owing to the fact that the Italian political scene is very unstable, because of the failed referendum and the prime minister Renzi resigning
- Concerned about us all
The world should be concerned about what is happening these days, we should be also concerned about refugees , as their movement in mass can bring other problems to the countries they go to.
