Trump and World Peace – Helsinki 2018

Trump and World Peace - Helsinki Summit

Donald Trump speaking of the World Peace is equivalent to Saudi Arabia being a Human Rights watchdog. They simply don’t fit together in one sentence. On one hand when the President of the United States talks of banning the Muslims from entering the United States; or calling some countries “Shit Holes”; and calling Mexican immigrants murderers and rapists; or when he brags about using nuclear weapons against North Korea on twitter; it sounds pretty hypocritical when the same mouth talks of world peace.

Donald Trump Lacks Compassion

When we talk about peace, often the feeling of compassion precedes that thought. Donald Trump exhibited and example of extreme compassion when he mocked a disabled reporter. It was further exemplified his compassion when he mocked many women based on their looks. He didn’t shy away from using the racial slur towards a congresswoman of Native Indian origin. Since Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, we have witnessed many such acts of compassion from him. It is pretty ironical that he talked about the world peace at Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Reactions After Helsinki 2018

Trump’s statement in Helsinki didn’t go very well among the domestic political circle. Some called it a treasonous act that Donald Trump, being the President of the United States, said that he believes Putin over his own Security Agencies. Many others called it a disgraceful act. Even his faithful friends at Fox News didn’t like what their most favourite president said. Some of his supporters did advocate on his behalf citing his comments on the World Peace.

The media networks widely criticised this act and said they didn’t have anything against world peace, but how Donald Trump conducted himself at Helsinki 2018 summit wasn’t something he should have being the President of the United States.

Putin As A Business Ally

The retaliation to Trump – Putin meet wasn’t 100% as there were some who now anxiously wait for post summit deals. The head of the sovereign wealth fund, Kirill Dmitriev said that American Businesses were eager to do business with Russia however, wasn’t sure if the United States was ready for this. The head of the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia, Alexis Rodzianko, said in an interview with Sputnik news service, “I would certainly welcome it, but I think it requires both governments to work to create that platform, or that format. Then business will be most pleased to participate.”
