How Donald Trump can influence world war III
On November 8th, 2016, a world renowned businessman Donald Trump was elected to be the next president of the United States. He is known to be a ‘political novice, self- promoter and a Provocateur’, but against all odds he managed to beat the secretary of state, U.S senator and first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
No one expected Trump to become president since he had lost the popular vote, but surprisingly, trump became the fourth president to win the election by an Electoral College. Many believed that Trump was elected because Russian President Vladimir Putin had influenced the 2016 elections. But this theory has not, yet, been proven. It is known to have been told that the majority votes, which Trump had received, were from the elite whites of the American society or the poorer whites left behind by the economic process. This turned out to be greater in numbers for the Republican Candidates than 2012. And since 20th January 2017, began the reign of Donald Trump.
It has been a year since the business tycoon has become Donald Trump, the forty fifth president of the United States of America. Since the beginning of his presidency Trump has achieved many things such as passing a major tax cut and appointing Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch but he failed on some of his promises such as building a wall on the border of Mexico and replacing the affordable Care act.
Apart from his first achievements and failed promises, Trump may have influenced an upcoming breakup in the Gulf Cooperation Council. Which was first influenced on his first foreign trip, in which he visited Saudi Arabia. While trump was previewing his upcoming overseas trip at the commencement ceremony, he said ‘I’ll speak with Muslim leaders and challenge them to fight hatred and extremism and embrace a peaceful future for their faith and they’re looking very much forwarded to hearing what we, as your representative, what we have to say. We have to stop radical Islamic terrorism’.
Even though he stated to fight hatred and extremism, he may have created hatred among the Arab states. After his first visit to Saudi, it came to terms that Qatar has been sponsoring terrorist organizations, which Qatar completely denies. Although there is strong evidence to prove the allegations made towards Qatar. No terms of peace has made towards the country.
This fight might influence a break out in the Gulf Cooperation Council which may result in war if not mended later on. It may not look like a big deal to many. But what this crisis has done. It has created hatred against a family of states which may never be forgotten. If the fight is not controlled it may slowly influence world war 3 to occur.
Trump not only influenced feelings of anger in the hearts of the people in Qatar. He also influenced ‘fear, anger and hatred’ towards Muslims, not only in the hearts of Americans but also other supporters worldwide.
Barack Obama the former president of the United States compared Donald Trump to Hitler. Many may agree to this comparison. It was Hitler who started the Second World War and it was Hitler who brought out the hatred towards Jews in this world. Both Hitler as well as Trump has imposed series of escalating steps such as demonetization, discrimination and isolating of vulnerable communities.
By establishing the travel ban dubbed as the Muslim ban and using his freedom of speech, Trump has started to isolate the Muslim population in his country and has tarnished the term of equality in the United States of America. These small actions done by the leader of such a large and powerful country can cause uproar in the world. This can cause an anti Muslim group and bring further hatred towards all Muslims, which may result as a reason for world war 3 to be made.
Therefore in order to avoid the possibility for world war 3 to occur. We must all join forces and make sure to tarnish the hate influenced by the mockery we call Donald trump
