I am no fan of your president, but the best thing that could happen to the planet, is for the US and indeed my own nation, to cease to have much say
over anything that happens outside their own borders. Decades of both our nations abuses of other regions by inserting proxy armies, espionage
concerns, and controlling reserves of resources in nations they have no business operating in, have decimated our collective reputations world wide,
as well as resulting in the death and displacement of millions of people, examples of which can currently be seen all over the Middle East and North
Perhaps if Mr Trump, and our current PM Mrs May, could see their way to administrating only the affairs of the nations they live in, rather than
trying to dictate to nations half a world away, about what they may and may not do, all under a guise of freedom and democracy, then the world and
indeed the US and UK for that matter, may just end up better places... assuming the internal policy choices they make are better than a) what they
have demonstrated so far, and b) the foreign policy choices they have made in recent times.
Personally speaking, I doubt very much that either leader has the gumption, or indeed the compassion necessary to make a good fist of internal
policy, because both creatures have been steeped in the suffering of the innocent, have made money from the work of others, and neither one has the
moral fortitude one would expect from a slasher horror villain. I do not believe that anyone who believes in trickle down economics or any of the
other famous facets of capitalism as an economic model, has the tools of mind necessary to make internal policy work for the benefit of the people,
rather than corporate interests.
