In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, President-elect Donald Trump said that he is likely to end the US support of “moderate” Syrian rebel groups, saying that “we have no idea who these people are” and that the US needs to focus on defeating ISIS.
Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to «go quietly into that good night». On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.
European politicians have said that Donald Trump’s election victory in the U.S. will act as a catalyst for a revolution across Europe.
Prospective leaders across the continent say that the crumbling European project is set to be shaken up with major changes as various elections are due to be held in the coming year.
A number of ‘Trump-style’ moments are set for Europe this year. Starting with the Austrian presidential re-run and Italian constitutional referendum on December 4, 12 elections follow in a year.
Romanian general elections will be run on December 11. The Netherlands votes in March, French Presidential elections will be held in late April-beginning of May.
Germany in September, Czech Republic in October. Plus local elections in Germany and several presidential elections.
And the populist candidates are already sensing victory.
Immediately after Trump was declared 45th president of the USA Marine Le Pen said: “Nothing is immutable. What has happened this night is not the end of the world, it’s the end of a world.”
Even more pertinently Le Pen’s chief strategist Florian Philippot tweeted: “Their world is collapsing, ours is being built.”
Sounding a more sombre tone former French prime minister, Dominique de Villepin said: “What’s happening in the US could happen in France.”
And yet another former prime minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin added: “The boundaries of reason disappeared with Brexit, the main lesson for France is that Le Pen can win.”
Jean-Marie Le Pen, Marine Le Pen’s father and the founder of the French Front National, said: “Today the United States, tomorrow France.”
Mr Trump has promised to renegotiate America’s trade deals and has threatened to pull the US out of the World Trade Organisation.
He has also threatened tariffs on imports from Mexico and China, which experts fear could raise domestic inflation and affect European exporters.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has already projected the growth of the eurozone GDP to decrease to 1.5 percent next year and that estimate was with the US economy picking up.
A former IMF chief economist Simon Johnson said: “Trump’s trade-led recession would trip Europe back into full-blown recession, which would likely precipitate a serious banking crisis.
“If this risk were not contained and the probability of a European banking debacle is already disconcertingly high, there would be a further negative spiral.”
Economists at Moody’s rating agency estimate that if Mr Trump does what he says he will, it is likely to trigger a recession and shrink the economy losing 3.5 million jobs and increasing the unemployment rate from five per cent to seven per cent by 2020.
The deputy director of European Reform, Simon Tilford, said: “You clearly see a scenario where instead of moderating Trump, the House and the Senate fall behind him, and there the implications for Europe could be pretty serious.”
The German defence minister, Ursula von der Leyen, said: “There are many questions yet to be answered.”
French president, Francois Hollande, said: “Certain positions taken by Donald Trump during the American campaign must be confronted.
“What is at stake is peace, the fight against terrorism, the situation in the Middle East. It is economic relations and the preservation of the planet.”
European foreign ministers are set to meet on Sunday to asses Mr Trump’s election victory will have on transatlantic relations.
An explosion struck the largest US military base in Afghanistan early Saturday, causing some casualties, NATO said.
No militant group has so far claimed responsibility for the blast, which occurs as the Taliban step up nationwide attacks before the onset of winter, when fighting usually ebbs.
« We can confirm that there was an explosion at Bagram Airfield this morning just after 5:30 am (0100 GMT). There have been casualties, » the military coalition said in a brief statement.
GERMANY politicians have warned the « Trump effect » could spread across Europe as its finance minister said people should be « ready to learn » about complicated politics.
Speaking the day after the billionaire businessman won the US Presidential election, Mr Schäuble said everybody should be wary of an increase in populist forces across Europe. Note the implication that the people really are too stupid to run their own country! But you know, Belgium went without a central government for 535 days and things got a lot better for the people. I have no idea what possessed them to let a central government back in after that clear object lesson! Spain is going through the same thing; no elected central government and the people are doing better
The united terrorist group, consisted of such organizations as «Jabhat Ansar al-Din» and «Levanta», has launched a video statement, in which terrorists were asking about the beginning of peace talks and a ceasefire in Syria.
They know the supply of bombs, bullets, and chemical weapons comes to a screeching halt in 70 days
The government in India has recently made a move to ban large currency notes, continuing the push towards a cashless society, an effort that the country has been working on for decades. 500 and 1,000 rupee notes were banned throughout the country, which may seem like large currency notes, but they exchange for just a few American dollars, and represent 85% of the cash transactions in the country…
Bahrainis have taken to the streets in several villages and towns in support of senior Shia cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim.
On Friday, a mass protest was held near Imam Sadiq mosque in the village of Diraz, the hometown of the cleric.
The demonstrators condemned Manama’s continued ban on holding Friday prayers in the village.
On June 20, Bahraini authorities stripped the 79-year-old cleric of his citizenship, less than a week after suspending the al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, the country’s main opposition bloc, and dissolving the Islamic Enlightenment Institution, founded by Qassim, and the opposition al-Risala Islamic Association.
People in the villages of Shakhoura and Abu Saiba also demonstrated in solidarity with Sheikh Qassem and the political detainees despite tightened security measures.
So far, these protests have been relatively peaceful; but if it gets out-of-control violent, with the US and UK not making any concerted efforts to blunt the anger of Shiite Bahrainis by negotiating even some minor concessions here, this may blow up in the Al-Khalifa monarchy’s face like a bad trick cigar, and they may well be sent packing.
And of course, a revolution may well generate a complete evacuation of the US and UK Naval Base (just dedicated by Prince Phillip).
