Everybody in the world is not talking about the US presidential elections 2016! However, most of them, if not all, are undoubtedly talking about the elections for the United States of America’s president that is scheduled to be held on November 8, 2016. Obama is not in the fray as the law prohibits a third-time election of a person as the president. This election becomes the major issue because it’s an election for the USA, the piece of land that directly or indirectly influences the whole world. People are talking about the expected results of this elections in every possible terms – economic implications, diplomatic implications, defence implications and others. Another dichotomy among these curious people can further set apart the class which is talking about the candidates in the race and a further class, if we create, is talking only about a serial entrepreneur and the major competitor of Hillary Clinton – Donald Trump.
I am not going to enter into the technicality of how the USA elects the president for four years. To be frank, that is a complex procedure which cannot be explained when we are talking about Donald Trump. With his pungent talks, eccentric comments and rash observations, Donald has become very popular in the world. People are curious about the future and speculating what could change once he reaches the White House. If I may say so, he is in direct contrast to the president at current, Obama. Obama has won the Nobel peace prize in 2009 for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people.” I am sure Donald Trump can never walk the roads of the towns which Obama has wandered every single street! Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is also somehow known for her composite and peaceful contribution in the government. Undoubtedly, she is also known for being the wife of former president Bill Clinton (and she also knows Monica Lewinsky).
Cutting the things short, Donald Trump has presented a vision to the citizens of the USA that is hurried, sharp and suiting to the mind-set which is not ready to accept an all-inclusive form of diplomacy. Trump is blunt about the immigrants; he is callous towards the Muslims; he is derogatory in his remarks about the nations with which the USA has good relations. Now, the intellectual and the ‘thinking’ class of the United States is worried! Even the current president Obama has shown his concerns over the rash arguments made by Trump. On an occasion, Obama spoke:
“Isolating or disparaging Muslims, suggesting that they should be treated differently when it comes to entering this country — (applause) — that is not just a betrayal of our values — (applause) — that’s not just a betrayal of who we are, it would alienate the very communities at home and abroad who are our most important partners in the fight against violent extremism.”
This person Trump, who has never been stable in his marriage (he has married thrice), cannot keep a nation like USA stable. Even the popular wrestler John Cena has registered his dissent over Donald’s Muslim remarks which were nothing short of the limits of extremity!
One the other hand, people in the USA are no lesser racist and extremists than we think. They go on preaching other countries, including India, about tolerance and intolerance and simply forget to check their own movements. Some people are thinking that this person called Donald is as fast as the classic fast bowler Alan Donald who will just come and bash the ISIS like nothing! But dear people, ISIS is a terror organisation, not a Muslim organisation that you are ready to ban the entry of Muslims in your country!
The thing that makes the US Presidential election very important is undoubtedly the participation of trump. If he comes to the white house, be ready to see the equations changing throughout the world. I extend my best wishes towards Hillary Clinton; she is a noble candidate who MUST win the presidential election if the USA wants to maintain a great development for itself and also for the world.
