What will the US look like under Trump? Was his election campaign a big scam?

Everybody agrees now that the President – elect Donald Trump won the 8 November election, by promising he will take good care of the Americans who are left behind in the era of globalization and of the global financial rackets. The first signs though indicate the opposite. His choices for the top Washington jobs are obviously favoring ultra right-winger supremacists with no respect for the ‘vulgar’ commoners plus a demonic and infamous financial shark.

At the same time the New York banks are now celebrating new historic highs of the main indices in Wall Street’s land of miracles. There, a very few financial sultans generate colossal amounts of dollar wealth for themselves, just because they have been given a free hand from the political establishment to do so. Obviously, they expect more from the new tenant of the White House. Let’s take one thing at a time.

Building an attack force

Starting from the first choices to formulate the new administration, Trump has shown his preference for those who have the least respect for lay peoples’ economic, social and political rights. The two army generals, the jurist and the media executive he chose to participate in his White House team have made their name as bullies, racists and stern prosecutors. All of them have shown no respect for human values and rights on various occasions throughout their careers. All of them are well known about their supremacist views and invariably belong to the extreme right wing and the most reactionary factions of the Republican Party, the infamous ‘alt right’ group and the ‘Tea Parties’.

The choices of persons that Trump makes for his administration have also encouraged the most right wing or even fascist organization in the country. The “alt-right” movement, which even includes neo-Nazis, celebrated the win of the new President elect in his own new Washington hotel by doing the Nazi salute. According to Reuters, “a video circulating on the internet which showed members of the “alt-right” movement, a grouping that includes neo-Nazis, white nationalists and anti-Semites, meeting on Saturday in Washington a few blocks from the White House”. Those developments have already rang bells in Berlin and Tel Aviv.Brexit Britain

Who are they really?

Steve Bannon, who fashioned and headed the ‘Breitbart News’ website, the voice of the ‘alt-right’ group, is appointed as Trump’s chief White House Strategist. Guy Verhofstadt, the leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in the European Parliament, former Prime Minister of Belgium and chief negotiator for Brexit, accused Bannon of trying to poison European internal politics by setting up subsidiaries of ‘Breitbart News’ in the Old Continent. When the news broke out that Trump impertinently dared to advise the British government to appoint Brexit maniac Nigel Farage as ambassador in the US, Verhofstadt said that “One clown in Washington is more than enough”.

Senator Jeff Sessions, chosen by the President-elect to serve as Attorney General, is infamous for his racist comments and his extreme harshness as US Attorney of Alabama. Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn who is appointed as National Security Adviser, he is a well known bully and admirer of the autocratic ways of the Russian ruler Vladimir Putin. Flynn also has strong ties with the Turkish Sultan – President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the despotic ruler of that country. Mike Pompeo, another retired army general, Representative of Kansas, Trump’s choice to head nothing less than the mighty CIA, seems to have declared war to half the human race. Pompeo has made wholesale accusations against all the Muslim leaders who have not denounced or haven’t actively turned against Islamic fundamentalism as being “potentially complicit”. Understandably, for the head of CIA being complicit, means that they are the enemy. No?

What about the left behind Americans?

The fact that those people are not what the left behind Americans expected from Trump is rather obvious, and he will learn the hard way after he is installed in the Oval Office. Barack Obama has already cautioned him that the view from there is different. Now, what about his promises regarding the New York banks and the Wall Street money sharks, the rulers of the New York Stock Exchange? All along his long campaign and more aggressively during the final weeks and days before the 8 November election, Trump kept accusing Hillary Clinton of having a secret agreement with the banking conglomerates to give them more liberties ‘to keep America down’. He even accused the US central bank the Fed of participating in this plot.

However, from 9 November onwards the Wall Street money hub and the New York banks keep celebrating his win and the S&P basic NYSE index triumphantly broke the long time barrier of 19,000 points. The climate in the NYSE is better than ever, clearly as because they knew that Trump is their man and they expect the best from him. As if this was not enough, on 10 November, a CNBC report revealed that President Elect’s team was considering Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive, the most powerful man in Wall Street, for the position of the Treasury Secretary. Who, then, has conspired with Wall Street against the left behind Americans, Clinton or Trump?

A disrespectful man

Trump’s complete disrespect for ‘conflict of interest’ issues is well known, because he decided to continue running his global business empire from the Oval Office. The Dimon case though is the cross of the Rubicon. The Treasury is the ultimate supervisory body of Wall Street sharks, and be willing to give the power to legislate to the most aggressive of them, is like appointing the wolf to guard the lambs.

In short, Trump has manipulated and shamelessly lied to the left behind Americans in order to get the best job in the world. There is more to it though. He has also decided to employ that kind of people, who are willing to ruthlessly suppress any serious protests all over the US and are ready to violently confront any challenges to the new rule. God forbid, but this Trump affair may develop very destructively for America and the whole world.
