What Will Trump’s Legacy Be?

President Trump has upset a lot of countries in his first two weeks in office, and we have yet to see how many more are in line. Judging by the number and size of demonstrations against him it seems he is currently the most hated president of all time in the States.

It’s true that he has made some unpopular decisions, like the Muslim immigrant ban and his determination to build a wall between Mexico and the United States and make Mexico pay for it. The burning question is, what else does he have up his sleeve. He is without doubt the most radical president the U.S. has ever had.

I would not be surprised if he ends up being assassinated if he continues on his current path, for there has never been such an unpopular president in all of America’s history. Despite all the millions of people around the world who are demonstrating against his decisions, he still holds fast on the presidential orders he has made.

What does this say for the future of the United States and his legacy? Well, if he carries on with these unpopular decisions he may not last four years and could end up being impeached by Congress.

In contrast, the American people are demonstrating in their millions against the decisions he has made, especially his immigration ban which has affected all Muslims living, or wanting to settle in the United States. Currently there are about 3.3 million Muslims living in the USA and many who wish to move there. Trump’s plan has stopped this and the numbers of those refused entry are growing day by day.

With the number of militants increasing daily, and the rising number of attacks in European countries, it would seem like a plausible idea to stop them entering, but they are a tiny fraction of those who wish to enter. The trouble is, how do you distinguish these radicals from innocent people.

Currently, all Muslims from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are banned from entering the USA, which is due to the number of radicals that are fighting in these countries. But Trump’s new law goes further than this by banning all Muslims from entering the USA. There can be little doubt that this law cannot be sustained, for many are returning from abroad and live in America with families waiting for their return. How this turmoil will end is anyone’s guess, but for now it is making Trump the most hated leader in the world.

With the tensions between China and the U.S. over the South China Sea, and with the Russians, it is clear we are living in dangerous times, with the threat of nuclear war increasing as is evidenced by the world coming half a minute closer to annihilation according to the scientists. It would seem that once again the world is entering a period of major instability and someone like Trump is not helping to ease the tension.

I sincerely hope that this time of turmoil will pass and he calms down. He needs to improve international relations with the rest of the world and make efforts to ensure the people can live in hope once again. He needs to repair relations with foreign countries he has upset and move forward to making the world a place of peace once more. Given time, he may turn out to be a good president for the USA if he curbs his radical decisions. We have no choice but to wait and see how things turn out.

    You’ve fallen into a couple of the popular anti-Trump traps on this one Roy.
    Currently it seems that Congress has no say in what he is doing and they continue to follow him blindly.
    That simply isn’t true. The GOP hold the majority and as a rule all POTUS’s enjoy a 100 day “honeymoon” of sorts. It is also something to note that although US Executive Orders may seem draconian or dictatorial they in fact are subject to Congressional action. The EO’s are entered into he Federal Register and Congress has 30 days to revoke them.
    Currently, all Muslims from….
    That is a lie. The fact of the matter is that ALL PERSONS from the seven countries on the list are prohibited entry. That list btw is the same list Obama used.
    I also take exception to the notion that ISIL,Daesh or whatever term you like or any other nutter organization needs anything to recruit people.
    Lastly and you can call me an arrogant Yank but NO the United States does not have an obligation to cuddle other countries who are “upset”.


    • Hi Alfie, welcome back.
      My apologies if I seem to have one or two things wrong, but that is what I read in the news columns on the web. I am glad you corrected me on the Congress thing but surely, these unpopular decisions should never have been made in the first place. More thought should have gone into these decisions before they were made.
      I do not think I said anything about ISIL needing anything to recruit people for there are enough radicals in the Muslim religion as it is. The USA, like all other countries, does not need to ‘cuddle up’ to other nations who are upset, but should work towards an amicable agreement with them.
      I know the United Nations has done nothing over the past thirty or so years to settle disagreements between nations, and has become a total waste of time. Maybe under the new president it will start to work again as it used to.
      Lastly, I do not hate Trump and hope he will eventually turn out to be a good President for the USA and for the world.
      Best Regards,
      P.S. I have made one or two small changes which I hope will please you.

    I don’t think Europe have that many attacks. Not compared to the US. And I believe USA will be the target in the future. Probably for the use of the word “Islam” every now and then. Islam is the terrorists cover. But before Trump reack for the nuke button I think he will be removed. The instability he causes in the world is a bit worrying.
