Donald Trump has a warrant out on him for war crimes. We know that this president is lacking that which makes people human: compassion. Add that to POTUS’ complete lack of a conscience. Tony Schwartz, ghostwriter for Trump’s book, The Art of the Deal further confirms exactly who the real Donald Trump is, and his description of the president is not pretty. Considering all of these factors, the charges of murder and terrorism start to emerge as a frightening possibility.
Schwartz says of Trump in The New Yorker Magazine:
‘He lied strategically. He had a complete lack of conscience about it. Since most people are constrained by the truth [Trump’s indifference to it] gave him a strange advantage.’
‘”Trump stands for many of the things I abhor: his willingness to run over people, the gaudy, tacky, gigantic obsessions, the absolute lack of interest in anything beyond power and money. [ Looking back] I created a character far more winning than Trump actually is.’
Trump faces an arrest warrant from Iran, because he killed Major General Qassem Soleimani, 62, the nation’s top military figure in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds force in Sanaa, Yemen. The Quds Force is the “foreign operations wing of the elite paramilitary Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.”
This administration labeled Soleimani a “terrorist,” after stating that he had been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. troops in Iraq, according to CNBC News.
Trump told people who he was in the first line of his book Schartz said:
‘I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.’
That was not all. The country under deep sanctions by the US also asked Interpol for their help in capturing Trump. Monday, Tehran requested a Red Notice, the organization’s top-level warning for “36 US political and military figures, including” 45, according to the quasi-official Islamic Republic News Agency.
A Red Notice goes to law enforcement agencies worldwide. It is a request to locate and arrest an individual. Experts indicate that Interpol will likely refuse the request. After all, Interpol’s regulation requires the agency to deny any request it believes is “politically motivated.”
Prosecutor for Iran Qasi Mehr added that individuals had been charged with the crimes of “murder and terrorist acts.” These were the result of a US drone strike in Baghdad January 3, 2020. The bomb killed Soleiman.
The US Department of Defense claimed the strike “aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.” Of course, Trump has “broad powers in matters of military conflict under the US Constitution. Still, some military experts have expressed doubt over how legal the strike actually was.
Soleimani was in the capital of Iraq, Baghdad. His assassination led to increased regional tension as the price of oil shot up. The response was an attack by Iran and its proxies on “Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops. “
Schwartz said Trump was not simply driven by dealmaking but by an “insatiable hunger for money, praise, and celebrity. He’s a living black hole:”
‘Of course, he’s in it for the money. One of the most deep and basic needs he has is to prove that ‘I’m richer than you. He was incapable of saying something like that—it wouldn’t even be in his vocabulary. [He wants] money, praise, and celebrity. He’s a living black hole!’
America’s international allies criticized the drone airstrike when it happened. The UK and Germany warned the American commander-in-chief he could end up with a “dangerous escalation” in an unstable part of the world.
Trump’s assassination of the Iranian Soleiman has helped divide the US from it closest allies. The United Kingdom (UK) threatened POTUS with cutting back on its alliance with America under this president. Germany doubted how important its relationship with the United States was, suggesting the US was under a “state of decline.”
In return, Trump threatened these leaders with a new trade war if they stayed under the 2015 Iranian Nuclear Deal. He also took every opportunity to undermine the EU’s relationship with America. POTUS also suggested that the transatlantic alliance with Europe was declining.
Although Trump endorsed UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the prime minister was among those in doubt over the US’s stability. Trump’s order to kill Soleimani has triggered a remarkable turnaround in the UK prime minister’s approach to the US, according to The Business Insider:
‘UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab declared that the conflict was in none of our interests. He continued noting that the only winners of an Iranian war would be the Islamic State terrorist group.’
Thus far, Interpol has not yet answered Iran’s request, but certainly, it has the right to refuse such an inquiry.
Trump’s ghostwriter explained how Trump operated. Schwartz relayed a reason for why the president continuously threw people under the bus. The author said that Trump “couldn’t care less” about people:
‘I don’t take it personally, because the truth is he didn’t mean it personally. People are dispensable and disposable in Trump’s world. [should Trump be elected President], the millions of people who voted for him and believe that he represents their interests will learn what anyone who deals closely with him already knows—that he couldn’t care less about them.’
