Make America Great Again
The Trump future of America
Trump started his presidential run for 2016 with the slogan ‘lets make America great again'(the New York Times,2016), vowing to increase the economic strength and military power.
- Build a wall along the southern border and male Mexico pay for it.
- A socialist universal healthcare – universal healthcare for every American Citizen.
- Total and complete shutdown on Muslims entering the United States.
- Refuse to accept the Syrian refugees.
- Fight ISIS in Iraq.
- Impose tax on Chinese imports of 45%.
- To stop the offshoring of American jobs.
- Considering the U.S national debt and it’s position in the world.
- Cancel the visas of illegal immigrants.
China and Mexico are one of the biggest traders with America and after the Trump policies it could change a lot globally. China is third largest importer and the largest exporter to America and imposing tax on the import of Chinese product would change the world globally(USA Today,2016). Forcing Ford motors to stop constructing their plant in Mexico or face a 35% import tax on the cars instead would lead to spoil relations with Mexico and ending the concept of free trade would lead to spoil the relations with North America and Canada as well(theguardian,2016).

Targeting people on the name of religion- by not granting visas to the Muslims and bringing down some mosques. By supporting Women and taking care of them. Eliminating birth right citizenship and giving the natives chance to accelerate. Choose the Judges on the basis of their education. Stop sending money to space exploration and spend on the people instead. Spend huge amount to strengthen the military and fight ISIS in collaboration with Russia(the New York Times).
Trump has targeted every class of the economy and every gender and age group in a unique way. He has positioned himself in a way where he is concerned and aware of all the domestic issues as well as the problems faced by the country globally even if he is ignorant of the fact that his policies can boost the economy but lead them in spoiling their relations with their neighboring countries(theguardian).
