President Donald Trump it is whether the world likes it or not. Challenging every known norm of the American politics and tapping the fears of the Americans over ISIS, immigrants, Latinos, Muslims and a host of other issues and riding on the wave of the anti-establishment, Donald J Trump triumphed contrary to the predictions, projections and expectations. Trump was elected in a stunning culmination of an explosive, populist and polarising campaign.
The bitter campaign was sought out to be a referendum on Trump, but it turned out to be a referendum on Hillary Clinton. Voters believed in what Trump said that the government had little time to address local issues as it is unnecessary entangled overseas.
The US voters may not have loved Trump, but they looked past his normal failures as they wanted a change. Several questions are being thrown up. What happens to Syria? The war against ISIS? Will Trump really befriend Russia as never before and if so, what would be its impact on others? What could the Central Asian nations expect? How about China and its markets?
Above all, what's in it for us, the Indians? What about our outsourcing industry? What happens to our NRIs in the pipeline? Will he keep his word on immigrants? We do not know how this man would carry himself in the White House and discharge his basic functions of the executive?
Every American is anxious to know his capacity to focus on issues to bring them to a rational conclusion. Soon, President Donald Trump would be sitting on the world's largest nuclear arsenal in the world.
The 45th President of the United States of America has to be temperamentally fit to lead a diverse nation of 320 million people. He arrives at the White House in a couple of months as the most ill-prepared or unprepared President-elect.
He has threatened his political opponents with jail and made himself a promise to curtail freedom of press. He has insulted women and threatened Muslims and immigrants and as the educated Americans and the media is worried, he has kept the company of racists, supremacists and anti-Semites. The world would also be watching whether he would really tear up the agreement to prevent Iran from building nuclear arms and the fate of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
China will be watching his first moves on the promised trade war. Mexicans want to know the height of the great wall he planned along the borders and how Trump would force them to pay for it. We as usual would like to know the fate of our non-immigrant visas as well, and how the American administration would be dealing with Pakistan henceforth.
America matters to the world as never before because of this man called Trump and his extreme views and behavior. He challenged every norm of American politics to become its President-elect and he will either make it great or destroy it completely. This change has placed not only the US on a precipice, but also the world!
