Political Leaders 2017

By Fatema Miah

Trumps presidential inauguration to White House this week and USAs most citizens are furious.

President Obama was the record breaking political figure, the Black Migrant background USA citizen became the President of USA 8 years ago.  Obama the Black President cannot be discussed alone without the Black American and slavery. The very USA where the Blacks were brought to my British enraptured for slavery. From the slavery to liberty and to civil rights a long journey of centuries the Black USA citizens endured and battled. After all the Blacks even in Todays date treated inferior by most white people there. The white supremacy is the obvious scene there is USA.

 USA and politics cannot be discussed without going into the past century’s Black America.  History of USA has remarkable chapter of turning in 20th century brought by the great and memorable Martin Luther the King alongside Malcom X. The Men with courage and dignity stood firm for rights, the basic human rights of being treated with respect, right of freedom and equality. The inequality an ongoing norm there in USA, neither Obama being the Black Race President in USA could not even out during his two full terms of presidency.

I couldn’t resist to include the famous quote:

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed”: We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal. “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood” Martin Luther the King. Obama mentioned the past race discrimination during his 1st election campaign and wrote in Audacity of hope. By doing so he ascertained entire Black Americans votes.

 Obama lived the dream of Martin Luther the King dreamed in the last century, ‘the true meaning of its creed’. A Black USA Man became the president of USA and served two terms. Obama and Black there in USA do have a gulf of gap.  Tiers are 1st of all the slave class and the migrant class background.  Then the wealth and status, follow on by the profession, education and economic class so forth on, overall the discrimination goes on.  The later part of Martin Luther the kings dream of the son of slave and the Slave owners sons to sit on same table, is in question even in today’s date.

Here the wealth takes presentence together with background. It is a culture of gathering vast amount of wealth way beyond the necessity amount even beyond the highest privileged living amount. That is obviously at the cost of public suffering.  During Obamas Presidency USA suffered financially, the civil servants weren’t paid wages. Now, several years later, at the termination of Obamas presidency, the report showing that: “It was estimated President Obama has a net worth of $7 million dollars. It was his worth $1.3 million in 2007 when he ran for the presidency candidate. The differences make the millionaire 438% wealthier than when he first ran for office.”

There Clinton “in May 2012 offers a glimpse into the way Clinton has leveraged his global popularity into a personal fortune. Starting just two weeks after exiting the Oval Office, Clinton has delivered hundreds of paid speeches, lifting a family that was “dead broke,” as wife Hillary Rodham Clinton phrased it earlier this month, to a point of such extraordinary wealth that it is now seen as a potential political liability if she runs for president in 2016.”  This comes in question.

Trumps case is completely different the elect president of USA, his intention is ambiguous.  Thus Trump’s businesses produce about $160 million in pre-tax income, obviously that’s a huge sum of money. In 2012, President Obama’s re-election campaign spent more than $700 million. It was estimate that this year’s candidates each spend at least a billion dollars. However, Trump said that “he would self-fund his Presidential campaign. And when Trumps income figure variation was questioned by Journalists Trump said “who cares” and such childish is President elected of USA the world’s leading power.

Tony Blair, past UKs Prime Minister, since resigning as PM has been receiving from the extremely grateful wealthy large sums and he is now estimated to be worth well over £60 million. Now Mr Blair is still concern for the Britain and its future. He is clearly against the Brexit and spoke against Theresa Mays Brexit policy. The UK people and the politicians are anxious about the Article 50 and Theresa May said on 18th January that she has a plan and others have no clue. So childish of the British Prime Minister. M Trump strongly support Brexit and Theresa May sent Mr Trump her warm welcoming messaging of the diplomatic bond between UK and USA. Mr Blair claims Corbin being incompetence to manage the Labour Party, hence he moving his office to Westminster to be near to the Parliament.

There only few days before Trump inauguration to white house and people around the wold and specially the USA citizens most are anti-Trump. I as I believed I wrote statement as such: Lets think positive and hope for good. Many things may be will turn out better under Trump. He started with arrogance, and gradually changed a lot. May will work for betterment, worlds peace and justice, for all concern. One thing He doesn’t have personal motives in this role. All is matter of taking right guide and be guided. Not going to please everyone. He isn’t pleasing character. It is matter of, if good result brought. Bush wasn’t Great, Obama made no difference, so not much expected because of USA democrats’ power. Trump is man of challenge and now will try to prove himself before the world to make a positive image of him-self. Pakistan and other terror states/ organisations needs to be dealt with and sorted out, hope Trump administration will work positively.

There are so many reactive contradictory comments made. I am accused of being Putin’s troll, not US citizen, do not understand what USA citizens want, lacking in understanding how bad trump is, not being Native English speaking, etc. My reply is I am a hope preacher, hope positive out of negative. Trump isn’t a pleasant character neither my choice. However, under the current world state, the war, inequality, poverty and terrorism may be Trump is the answer.

 There are very highly educated and professionals, wise matured people many do agreed that Trump is better than all other USA politicians and the candidates.  People couldn’t prevent Trumps victory though the USAs educated, so called freedom of speech and respect of view claimers are so rigid, they try to force their understanding onto others or get angry. I found there is a strong similarity in most USA people and 99.9% Pakistanis are same rigid fanatics. Fanatics of religion or politics are all same.
