Pale face speak with forked tongue

Pale face speak with forked tongue

There was a time when America was considered great.

Not so long ago, the United States of America was the country of choice for higher education in most disciplines. It also provided the most level-playing field for ease of business where entrepreneurs could compete and succeed through hard work and innovation. It was a country that produced a large number of Nobel laureates from across disciplines. It has created the world’s most innovative companies whose market capitalisation is larger than the GDP of many countries. It is believed that these glory days of the USA are now coming to an end or at any rate America will not remain the undisputed leader of the world for long.

Despite President Donald Trump’s rhetoric to “make America Great Again”, it has instead become world’s most laughed-at nation, bereft of the exalted status that it once enjoyed. His promise to create jobs and bolster economy has taken a hit with top business executives falling out with the government after the Charlottesville episode that left one dead and several injured recently. After his failure to condemn the act of the supremacists and emphasing violence on "many sides", business leaders like Kenneth Fraizer, the CEO of Merck Pharmaceuticals, resigned from the President’s Manufacturing Council, followed by several others like Brian Krzanich, Kevin Plank and Scott Paul. This is in itself a deviation from the American business norm to wade into politics.

What the supremacist supporting Trump has completely missed is the fact that the white working class American has contributed precious little to its status as the world’s largest economy and the most respected democracy in the world. The greatness of the country is mainly due to its immigrants and its plurality.

For many years and throughout the 20th century, USA was the land of milk and honey, the “promised land”. It was the world’s most durable symbol of capitalism and globalisation.

Many instances during Trump’s nine month Presidency pointed to his strong racist ideology but nothing was as bizarre as his reaction and utterances following the recent racist fiasco in Charlottesville, VA.

Welcome to the new world order and let this century truly become the Asian countries.
