What would be the adjectives to best describe him?
Today, Nov 9th 2016, Donald Trump is the elected President of the USA. In Tehran mum is the word.
A caller, an Iranian citizen said on Monday: “Clinton will be good for us”. The same one on Tuesday: “Trump will be good for us”.
What does he think today? Wait and see. For now keep mum is the word. However, the Tehran’s ayatollahs and Donald Trump have many points in common. They love money, are bigoted and their over-sized ego will not fit in the universe.
The Middle East will present Donald Trump with a terrifying choice – and he won’t be able to handle it.
What does Trump actually do when these lands present a “threat” to the West? Dust off his anti-Muslim hatreds? Call up his mate Vladimir? Ask for an atlas?
So I’ll hazard a cruel prediction. The Middle East will reach out and grab Donald Trump when he least expects it, that it will present him with a terrifying choice (war or peace) and that his administration – such as it is – will not be capable of dealing with it. That will be the ultimate responsibility of American voters, of course.
