I am by no means a political expert but am certainly mindful of the huge media manipulation surrounding the reputation that follows Trump. The fact that I am taking the time to write this, proves to me that if he has only done one thing, he has made the world sit up and open their eyes to the political world...however messed up that may appear!
There may have been fireworks at the celebrations last night on the eve of his inauguration, but there will undoubtedly be many more fireworks in the coming years of his presidency. I have been listening to Nigel Farage’s new slot on LBC Radio with intrigue in the last few weeks and completely understand the widespread outcry across the US and UK for ‘change’. However, if the likes of Trump and Farage are seen (as they are by many) as the way forward, then I am at a loss as to how we move on without significantly increasing the risk of a huge economic downturn and some dramatic consequences to world relations.
Maybe Trump’s flamboyance and outrageous comments will change the way we view our future world leaders but the bottom line is that I’m now more interested in politics than ever before - and that has to be a good thing for my own self-development and awareness of the world around me.
"It's a movement like we've never seen anywhere in the world," the president-elect declared at a celebratory evening concert on Thursday night with the majestic Lincoln Memorial for a backdrop. To the unwavering supporters who were with him from the start, he promised: "You're not forgotten any more. You're not forgotten any more." "I'll see you tomorrow," he called out, and then fireworks exploded into the evening sky.
