INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS/AFFAIRS(POLITICS): THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF RACISM AND UNJUSTIFIED KILLINGS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA UNDER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.

There has been general outcries and outbursts against President Donald Trump on his racism moves and supports against the Black Americans and Blacks generally.

In the United States today, the political space and citizens atmosphere is largely occupied by claims and disagreement with President Trump who has occupied himself with racism, apparent to citizens and the global sympathisers.

However, in the US, there is a two party system of operation named the Democrats Party and Republican Party. President Trump won the Seal of United States under a Republican Party after defeating former Secretary of States, Hillary Clinton who vied under Democrats Party aiming at succeeding President Barack Obama in an election keenly contested and majorly decided by the United States Electoral College.

Prior and post poll, President Trump keeps advocating and initiating policies against the Blacks and African nations, evident in his immigration policy, work permit, granting of citizens stay in U.S,etc. He has never seize to hide his obvious hatred against black nations and black race.
Very recently and concurrently, President Donald Trump initiated an open assault on the person of Ilhan Omar.

Ilhan Omar is a Congresswoman in the United States Parliament representing the people of Malthusian District. She used to be Somali-American. She was(in the past) a refugee in America who sought asylum from Somalia as a result of war and unrest in the country, together with her family members. She became a US citizen under the provision of United States law and vied to a Seat in the Parliament and won. She had vied sometimes back, lost but recontested and emerged.

Ilhan Omar and three other Congresswomen, Rashida Tliab, Alexander O.C and Ayanna Pressley are dominant threat to President Donald Trump in the governance and political sphere of the country as we speak.

In a public address President Trump made to address his supporters, he made an aggressive statement saying “send her back” to the people. He was majorly inciting Americans against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

However, in that respect, many Americans have stood up for Congresswoman Ilhan Omar against President Trump. A Senator in the US, Bernie Sanders noted that he is proud of the work Ilhan Omar does at the Congress. However shade President Trump of “stoking the most despicable and disturbing currents in the country. And that very hatred and racism fuels him. We must fight together to defeat the most dangerous president in the history of our country.” he concluded.

Another notable American Congresswoman, Neera Tanden noted that “Trump want us so dispirited we are immobilized. Turn your fear into anger. And your anger into energy.”

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar when addressing members of the press, commenting on President Donald Trump statements against her said, “I am where I belong, at the people’s house and you’re just gonna have to deal!”. She notably told the president that she is staying at the Congress where the people elected her into just like him as the president.

She furthered noted while addressing her supporters that, “Together we are building a movement that is inclusive of all people; centered on racial, social, economic, and environmental justice. Sign up now to join our movement and let’s hold Trump accountable together.”

The Speaker of the United States Congress, Speaker Pelosi remained an important figure fighting for the place of Blacks and against racism in the US. When President Trump said “send her back” to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, she made arrangements to dishonour the statement of the president. Ilhan Omar tweeted: “They said “send her back” but Speaker @SpeakerPelosi didn’t just make arrangements to send me back, she went back with me ✊

So grateful for the honor to return to Mother Africa with @TheBlackCaucus and commemorate The Year of Return!

#Doorofreturn #Ghana”

Speaker Pelosi took Ilhan Omar to a sacred and significant place in Ghana where it symbolises “return”, an honor for Ilhan Omar and a mockery to the person of President Trump.

President Trump continued to target these four progressive lawmakers known as the “Squard” while his senior advisers pushed back against assertions from Democrats that he is a racist.

President Donald Trump statements, body signals and policies have equally been causing serious havoc to Americans.

In El Paso and Dayton in the US, there were reported cases of mass shootings and brutality on Americans and occupiers of the places. These are areas predominantly occupied by the Blacks. There was 251 mass shootings in the United States in 216 days in these communities.

Americans and of course the Blacks, the Democrats, the “Squard” believes President perpetual hate speeches against the Black initiated the Whites to freely shoot and massacre their fellow citizens. Many had described the incidence as “domestic terrorism” on the soil of America. America believed to be most secure place on earth and where the world power resides. The Democrats in the Parliament are thus pushing to legislate on ‘Gun Control’ to address the perpetual killings. This bill is expected to ensure that not every American will have access to use guns at will, the licence will be restricted and minimised to ensure security of Americans and the country.

A U.S Senator from Vermont and candidate for President of the United States, Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted,

“The federal government must ban assault weapons and implement a buyback program to get assault weapons off the streets.”

The 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama equally expressed concern about the increase killings in the United States and ask the government to address it and stop fanning the embers of hate and racism on the soil of America.

As the United States of America draws closer to another national election, there have been variables trying to connect the dot if President Donald Trump will win his reelection bid as the 45th president of the United States or lose out to a Democrat candidate, those who have been advocate for equal rights, stop to hate speeches and racism in the U.S.
