Trump’s America Will not Protect the World Anymore, Can Germany Become the World’s Leader?

When the Second World War ended, America emerged as the global leader. Since then, America has become the guardian of the world. This sort of relationship has allowed America to peacefully become the undisputed leader of the world. Kind of like how Don Corleone achieved his power. When one nation is down, America will lend its hand. As a result, some day, if America ever needs that country’s help, they will willingly assist. That is all that it is about. Kindness always prevails.

Trump galloped to the White House by promising to end this American benevolence. Trump has professed his aim to reverse globalization. According to Trump, what is earned in America, stays in America. It is anyone’s guess how this plan will work out. If you have a history book handy, you might want to check out what happened the last time the leading powers of the world decide to promote nationalism, back in the 1930s. Was not pretty.

Since the end of Second World War, America’s two former enemies, Germany and Japan, have benefited the most from America’s benevolence. Now, these two countries are considered our greatest allies. However, under Trump’s vision, they will be among the biggest losers.

For one thing, Trump plans on removing US security from these countries. As a result of an arms agreement after the war, the US has protected these countries.

The Trump administration and Germany have already exchanged some testy differences. Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel, expressed shock with Trump’s immigration ban. According to a DW article, Merkel has vowed to do everything to support refugees affected by Trump’s ban.

“The necessary and decisive battle against terrorism does not in any way justify putting groups of certain people under general suspicion, in this case people of Muslim belief or of a certain origin,” Merkel told reporters in Berlin.

That quote perfectly sums up my views on Trump’s ban.

Apparently, Merkel’s opposition rubbed Trump the wrong way. On Saturday, the two discussed global issues like NATO and world turmoil. Back to the nationalism theme, Trump demanded that each nation in NATO should pay their own fair share. NPR article

In a shock to the financial world, Peter Navarro, the head of Trump’s new National Trade Council told The Financial Times, that Germany is using a “grossly undervalued” euro to gain advantage over the United States and its EU partners.

He said,

“A big obstacle to viewing TTIP as a bilateral deal is Germany, which continues to exploit other countries in the EU as well as the U.S. with an ‘implicit Deutsche Mark’ that is grossly undervalued.” CNBC article

  1. He will be impeached! These things take more than 10 days. Please have some patience. Ethics attorneys filed suit last week to impeach him under the emolument clause so he will HAVE to show his taxes or he will be impeached. Let’s give them a couple weeks! Have Hope!

  2. It would be so much fun to have a satire article exclaiming pure support for a Muslim country to be protectors of the world lol.. The heads of BF and UKip would explode 😂

    But seriously.. When has America ever protected anybody? During both world wars they had to be dragged in, but they sure as hell like to take credit for winning though lol

  4. Yeah Germany leading…how well is that going for the EU? Its going bad. The EU is coming apart because of her trying to force an open door policy for migrants and some countries can’t handle the influx. That kind of leadership isn’t going to work. We can’t afford their morality. We need to fix ourselves before we pontificate.

  6. WWII was America’s last justifiable war. Since then, our military aggression has been for the benefit of military-industrial corporations. Vietnam resulted in $500 BILLION in profits for six major American corporations.

  8. America, late entrant into the battle to save the free world, maximiser of profit from doing so, a policy that was continued into the post war period.
    We have to pay up on all monies obtained in various aid packages whilst Germany is bolstered free of charge against the possibility of continued westward movement of Uncle Joe’s troops.
    Really the worst rogue state in the latter part of the C20th with regime change policies to make Uncle Joe look like a beneficent family member.
