Trump…the US President… Many people all over the world hate him, are scared of him, admire, o does not understand him. More recently he has been the main newsmaker for the leading world’s mass media. As a true businessman, he tries to suppress junior partners, but at the same time he engages in an equal dialogue with those who are not weaker, or even stronger than him. His method of government is not similar to any of his predecessors in the White House. And it is getting interesting…
And now, it should be noted that he cares about his own image among Americans and the national treasury enrichment. He is ready to destroy the order that was set until he came to power to achieve high results in this matter. He is very aggressive towards European partners. He is introducing new import duties. He does not care about someone from Brussels, Paris and Berlin. At the same time, he sits at the table to negotiate with North Korean dictator, hoping for the Nobel Peace Prize, and then, passes to the Russian president.
Another place, where he showed his aggressive behavior was the NATO summit. Even before the beginning of this event, he attacked some European partners by sending letters. In them he stated the need to increase defense spending to 2 % of GDP. This theme was the main one during his speech at the summit. Trump stated again that his country did not have to pay for the security of Europe. The US President tries to meet the expectations of electorate, as well as the Congress, through this pressure because one of his pre-election promises was to force Europe to increase defense spending that it could defend itself.
It seemed that the European politicians did not have any answer to the US President. However, it only seemed… But later it turned out, that the leaders of Denmark expressed the loudest disagreement with the demand of Trump. The Prime Minister of this small country, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, said that his country was nothing to be embarrassed about NATO partnership, and added that not everything was measured in money. The Prime Minister cited the example of human losses of Denmark in Iraq and Afghanistan that are compatible with US losses, given the ratio of the size of both countries. The Danish media also reported that after such a statement, Donald Trump approached him, saying ‘a nice point’.
It turns out that Trump understands only strength. And unfortunately, Rasmussen does not find support among the other European leaders. Or it’s just for now?
On May 9, 2018, the US President Donald Trump signed Law 447 or JUST (Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today). It is interesting that this happened the day after the celebration of VE Day of the surrender of Germany in 1945.
In the communique, the White House said that the law required a report on the actions of certain countries with regard to the disposition of Holocaust era assets. The presence of such property in 46 countries must be reported to Congress by the US Secretary of State in 18 months. If this is not possible to determine any direct descendants, then the objects will be transferred to organizations that conduct Holocaust studies.
The law 447 does not mention any countries. And this document does not give any special powers to the USA. However, this law caused the greatest reaction in Poland. One of the founders of the Polish Conservative and Liberal Party Union of Real Politics, a professor at the Higher School of International Relations and American Studies in Warsaw, Stanisław Michalkiewicz said: “On May 9, 2018, Poland finally lost the Second World War … Now the Poles should pay 300 billion dollars to the Jews for the fact that they were killed by the Germans”. It was a cry of the soul in response to the law JUST. The Polish President Andrzej Duda expressed his fears that “this law might in some way pose a threat that would directed against Poland”.
Such actions of the United States can greatly complicate relations between Washington and the European allies, and this time it happens to Warsaw. And this, despite the fact that Poland presents the US interests in Europe, and after Brexit it was seen as the main representative of the USA in the European Union. But even with such important partners, the USA are ready to confront for their own reasons.
Earlier Washington withdrew from the Iranian nuclear deal and moved the embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. These actions of the US officials (especially the situation concerning Iran) caused misunderstanding and criticism of US partners in Europe. However, the White House does not pay attention to this.
Anyway, all the above-mentioned actions of the USA concern Israel. And they committed to please the Israeli side. So, why does Trump strive so actively to please Israel? There can be several answers. And one of the assumptions might sound like this: Donald Trump hopes that these actions will not be ignored by the influential Jewish clans of the USA and they will help him to avoid the impeachment. The threat of the impeachment of the 45th US President continues to exist and it is clear to everyone, including himself. Democrats and a part of the Republicans are just waiting for Trump’s new mistakes. Therefore, all these actions are aimed at seeking support from Soros, Rothschilds and other representatives of a powerful Jewish office in the United States.
It turns out that Donald Trump is just afraid of losing his presidency. And all these actions, which can inflict significant damage to the European and world security, are aimed at preserving its place in the White House. It becomes obvious that the current US power is even more unpredictable than it seemed. And in their personal interests it can go on deteriorating relations with long-term partners.
The recent parade of sovereignty in #Catalonia have failed, as a result of which the former president of the Catalan Generalitat, Carles Puigdemont, is running away from Spanish justice in Belgium. It can be said that the failure of the separatists testifies that the new president of the United States, Donald Trump, kept his main promise, refusing from the violent export of democracy in favor of respect for state sovereignty.
After the arrival of Donald Trump in the White House, all these separatist movements were gradually fading away, despite the active support of the main sponsor from the wing of public globalists, George Soros. For the first time, Washington used the “right of people to self-determination” in their geopolitical interests as early as the beginning of the 20th century, supporting in 1903 the “nation of Panama” in Colombia to privatize the future Panama Canal. Having seized the initiative from French investors, the Americans subsequently eliminated the president of Panama, Omar Torrijos, and the Chief of Staff of the national Defense Forces, general Manuel Noriega, who sought the sovereignty of the Canal. The first of them died in 1977 in a plane crash, and the second was overthrown in 1989 during the invasion of American troops in Panama. Thus, support for separatism in the zone of American interests has a long tradition and was actively used by Washington until recently.
On the example of Catalonia, you can also note that here the leader of the separatists, Carles Puigdemont, hoped clearly to repeat the experience of his predecessor, the founder of the first separatist party “Estat Catalá” Francisco Maciá. In 1928, he collaborated with the pro-American dictator of Cuba, Gerardo Machado, with the support of which he founded his “Revolutionary Separatist Party of Catalonia” in Havana. Having enlisted the support of George Soros and his comrades, Puigdemont hoped to continue the Catalan project after gaining independence, annexing Andorra, the southeast of France and part of Sardinia. However, deprived of US support, is now forced to seek salvation in political emigration. Thus, all the “separatist projects” were blocked without the support of the United States, along with them, the aggressive projects on the withdrawal of territories in various parts of the world were also brought to nothing. Preservation of the territorial integrity of Spain shows that Trump managed to stop the destructive operations of his predecessors at the moment.
Perhaps this explains in many respects why the figure of the new American president was under sustained attack of “misunderstanding of foreign policy,” and the former head of the Generalitat had to seek political asylum in Belgium, not having completed his plan for secession of Catalonia.
