Dawn of Trump Presidency

The official swearing in ceremony has finally concluded! So would we now see a new, resurgent America? What would be the various implications/fallouts of this and how would India's interests change/get modified w.r.t his (Trump's) vision of domestic and foreign policies?

Thoughts and comments please!

  • Good Points:
    US-Russia rapprochment. No need to choose between the 2.
    Sino-US rivalry: India can hope to remain 'pivot to asia'.

    Bad points:
    Indian skilled workers loose - mostly in IT industry
    Iran deal - Again the balancing act for India
  • But trump's anti sino is just a rhetoric to cut a deal from china. Moment deal is cut his rhetorics will fade away and sino us cooperation may begin.

    +1 he is using Taiwan as a leverage via one china policy.
    Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.

  • US federal court has stayed some of trump's executive orders.
  • I don't have a problem with US ban of immigrants, which is their prerogative. But simultaneously there should be a policy of non interference in their internal affairs as well. Most of the current mess is legacy of the US itself.

    It's impossible for someone to be a world leader without interfering.
    Good Bye. See you Later.

    Incorrect assertion.

    But even if it's assumed to be true, then be a "World Leader" by all means and interfere all you like. But then don't blame muslims. They were happily busy killing each other before the west painted a target on their own forehead. Be aware of the consequences and price of interference.

    If interference is a must, make it humanitarian and not military! :)

    What are you talking? Our National haanikarak Bapu single handedly hushed away Britishers wearing only a dhoti and carrying one stick. Go read some books and spent some less time inside the oven :trollface:

    Haha... The mutual exclusivity of ideal and real world is only a figment of imagination of theorists. Every kind of world exists simultaneously.
