President Donald Trump . It sounds quite odd to many across the world for a majority had not expected Donald Trump to win the election that was marred by a massive divisive campaign in the history of the American elections.
But , this is the new reality of America. Doomsayers have become hyper-active in judging Trump as President on the basis of what he had stated in the dust and fury of campaign, making the US out of bounds for Muslims, scrapping of Iran nuclear deal , and intimidating immigrants.
There was an odious smell of bitterness during the debates he had had with his rival Hillary Clinton of the Democratic Party . He stood his ground of fighting the election , defying all the calls by the Republican establishment, angered by his utterances, to step aside . Now that’s history as Donald Trump a billionaire has a date with January 20, 2017 to be sworn-in as President of the oldest democracy in the world, which wields huge influence all across the world- positive as also negative .
History has been a witness to many turns and twists , when the irrational campaigners have discharged them as responsible leaders . Trump cannot escape the responsibility that comes with the office which he is going to assume on January 20, 2017.
It would be interesting to know that how Trump would act in South Asia. The region housing the two volatile and nuclear armed neighbors India and Pakistan and in the immediate neighborhood of Afghanistan which is having the civil war like situation . Pakistan is seen as an epicenter of terrorism and India claims to be the worst victim of the worst affected by the export of terrorism from Pakistan . Similar complaint has been made by Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
Trump would be judged by his words in the victory speech where he called for healing the divisions . It is expected his attitude will change once he starts dealing with the real world , which is different from the concept and perspective that he held out during his campaign.
