As the country’s top diplomat, Donald Trump is supposed to ensure the level of foreign relations that increases the prospects of peace. Paramount to reaching this goal is being viewed as respectable and worthy of a relationship of mutual diplomacy by the leaders of other countries. He has failed to do that since being sworn in.
The New York Daily News reports that on Sunday:
‘The leader of Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group says the world will benefit from having an “idiot” in the White House.’
Hassan Nasrallah didn’t stop there. The New York Daily News added:
‘Referring to U.S. President Donald Trump, Nasrallah said “we are very optimistic that when an idiot settles in the White House and boasts about his idiocy, this is the beginning of relief for the oppressed around the world.”’
Donald Trump would benefit from treading carefully where Nasrallah is concerned. His extremist group has identified the U.S. as one of its enemies due to America’s support of Israel. Moreover, in a televised speech, Nasrallah said “America is the mother of terrorism,” a sentiment that further speaks to his lack of reverence for the U.S.
In the same speech referenced above, Nasrallah said America:
‘…is not qualified ethically, to present itself as one who fights terrorism, or that is the leader of a global coalition that targets terrorism.’
With these expressed feelings, one can easily hypothesize that Nasrallah isn’t a fan of Trump’s Muslim ban. The overwhelmingly unpopular order simply fans the fire that gives credence to arguments made by extremist leaders like Nasrallah.
Donald Trump is blindly leading the U.S. into war and the unfortunate reality is that at this juncture, more world leaders have dissented against Trump’s antics and policies than have stood in solidarity. This reality could have damning consequences for the people of America.
The speech in which Nasrallah calls America “the mother of terrorism,” is below:
