The Republican candidate in the White House race this year, Donald Trump is a radical candidate. He has radical ideas. His platform is radical.
Some Americans subscribe to this platform; but many Americans do not seem to buy it. It does not square with the values on which the American nation was founded.
I have followed reactions around the world and many people do not appreciate Mr. Trump’s radical views. Many think that if he became president the world would become more unsafe right on day one.
America is generally seen as the leader of the world; and many expect her to go for bridge-building among people and nations not walls- building.
The path Mr Trump has taken is one that will make the US not only to be distrusted, but hated and isolated in the world.
A lot of those who are watching the unfolding of today’s business in the United Sates at a distance are comforted by the fact that many high level personalities in Mr. Trump’s party have distanced themselves from his campaign. This is reassuring; and an indication that this leader of the free world is still ready and able to assume leadership in advancing the values which the world most needs.
Mr. Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton has opted for a moderate approach; and it is very evident that the majority of right thinking Americans are on board her train.
Daily prompt: Radical.
