Trump´s politic in European governments
Since Trump made it into the Whitehouse there were rumors that also in Europe more and more populists will take over and sweep into the governments. Trump was showing how a populist’s campaign can work and be successful. Furthermore, his politics like protectionism and military enforcement was interpreted as an example by many European parties like the AFD in Germany or the National Font in France.
Trump took advantage of the delicate situation in Frane after the latest terror attack and posted on Twitter:
Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election!

With tweets like this, he is enforcing all of the populistic politics by the National Front of France. A party that is borderline racist and against the EU. If Ms. Le Pen won the election yet to come in France it would proof that the way Trump is doing politics appeals to other countries of the western world as well. A politic that is living off simplifying, alternative facts and racism. But why does he even care about the election in France?
But why does he even care about the election in France?
Normally he is just focused on American issues and nothing else – America first! It could be because of the massive criticism he has to face since he started his campaign. He could be trying to proof his critics wrong by demonstrating that other countries follow his lead. But what is he proofing with that strategy? He just demonstrates that he has found a way to fool the people and that it is possible to lead a nation without rational and non-fictional thinking.
Executive Orders and Other Legislation
With “Buy American Hire American” there is is another executive order for immediate release that could be interpreted as racist and not innovational.
“Buy American Laws” means all statutes, regulations, rules, and Executive Orders relating to Federal procurement or Federal grants including those that refer to “Buy America” or “Buy American” that require, or provide a preference for, the purchase or acquisition of goods, products, or materials produced in the United States, including iron, steel, and manufactured goods.
That actually means that Americans should be preferred not because of their qualification but because of their nationality. In my opinion that is very discriminating to all the foreign specialists that were hired by American companies.
Question of the week?
Where is the line between nationalism and racism?
