Trump’s America

trump1I will not be writing about Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States of America, as there are more writers, authors and pundits who can describe him better as a person and as the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth today.

All I can say is that on November 2016, Trump made the cover of the famous German Der Spiegel magazine, when he won the election, depicting him as a fiery Earth-bound asteroid that could very well “end the world (as we know it)”.

Always providing the world with absurd pronouncements/statements, nothing, however, has been more ridiculous, outrageous and discordant than Trump’s recent executive order implementing the travel ban to the USA of people coming from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

It is for this reason that, again, Der Spiegel had Trump on the cover of their magazine depicting him as a machete-wielding figure, mouth agape, holding the Statue of Liberty’s severed head aloft menacingly with the caption America first.

No doubt the new cover speaks volume about what is happening in Trump’s America today with respect to immigrants and most especially to refugees. The latter’s resettlement has been halted for 120 days except those coming from Syria whose resettlement to the US has been stopped indefinitely, leaving tens of thousands of people in refugee camps.
