Just weeks ago, Trump said in a Wall Street Journal interview that Steve Bannon was “a guy who works for me”. Giving reporters and journalist a possible hint that Bannon was making his way out of the White House. But Bannon, the former investment banker and owner of right-wing news site Breitbart, seemed to be Trumps closest man. Steve described himself coming into the administration as the “deconstruction of the administrative state”. In other words, draining the swamp.
Trumps 2016 campaign consisted many of Steve Bannon’s populist views and promises. Including building a wall between Mexico and the U.S, which is rising from ideas to actual mold in the West Wing of the White House. A west wing that has been called chaotic throughout Trump’s campaign is seemingly making a rise on their own.
This rise of ideas like this one actually taking place are seeming more probable by the minute. Trump’s recent appearances at events like the NATO alliance for example, when he dropped the harmful criticism bomb on Brussels’ NATO leaders for unprepared terror attack as well as using the London terror attacks to bring back the use of his travel ban. An agenda that he has been trying to hammer for quite some time. This ban consist of countries that have a majority of Muslims and Islamic beliefs.
Trump’s latest Twitter feud details him blaming the London Mayor for the terrorist attacks that just occurred. This seemed to help Trump bring up that political correctness is the reason these “incidents” are happening.
Trump tweeted: “That’s right, we need a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that won’t help us protect our people!” – @realDonaldTrump, POTUS
Recent attacks give leeway for the President to give excuses to the homegrown Radical Islamic terrorism spreading throughout Europe. He does have some decent points though, the Manchester bombing during an Ariana Grande concert on May 22 at the Manchester Arena was by a man who was traveling from England to Libya and receiving training by ISIS recruitment centers in Syria. Yet, we let him fly back and forth from these countries even when he or certain others are on the no-fly list.
It makes you question yourself, and your morals. Do you put your country first before others, or help other countries like they were your own?
