Trump’s duplicity is, simply put, favoring globalism and not the nationalistic agenda he ran on as a candidate for the presidency almost a year ago.
Trump’s duplicity began by April 2017.
Trump betrayed his campaign position almost the second after his inauguration when he appointed a mostly billionaire-based cabinet as the “globalist dream team” supposed to support the nationalism he had promoted since the 16 June 2015.
Indeed, despite the President’s trying hard to work for America First, there is a parallel world evolving next to him, working for the opposing agenda, globalism.
Recently, Steven Bannon stood at the Values Voters Summit and vehemently made the case on behalf of conservatism for America.
As a conservative, Bannon is a man of principles. As a patriot, Bannon is a man of convictions. As a friend of Trump, Bannon is a man of loyalty.
Whether by belief or by constraint, Bannon believes in Trump. “You are going to be the vehicle for these folks to take back the country,” he told the devoted crowd listening to his words of wisdom.
He knows Trump has come with the hefty baggage that none of us knew of or ever expected and Bannon knows first hand he cannot turn his back on the man he helped become President.
As time goes by, the central globalist pillar in the Trump Administration remains at the hands of his offspring whom he settled close by to him.
Thus, Trump has defended General Kelly announcing “he loves his job and will stay for the remaining seven years. “ Reactions from Trump’s voters to this? “John Kelly and the policies he prefers have absolutely no mandate from the voters.”
What are the voters’ reactions to Trump’s duplicity?
“John Kelly and the policies he prefers have absolutely no mandate from the voters.”
And his voters’ reactions to this?
“Trump is fulfilling his promises. MAGA”
In other words, as the master of the deal that he is, Trump expertly and subtly is succeeding with his perfectly timed give-and-take.
On 8 October 2017, President Trump broke his campaign promise as he told Israel’s long-term ally, former Governor Mike Huckabee in an interview broadcast on TBN that he “would not move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem until he had tried to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”
Days later, on 12 October 2017, Trump took the seemingly bold step of withdrawing membership in UNESCO, reportedly, based on the organization’s anti-Israel bias.
Nonetheless, the withdrawal is not with immediate effect but at the end of the current membership, in over a year time, 31 December 2018.
Bottom line: The President broke his promise and gave the Palestinians voice and vote when he “postponed” moving that embassy to Israel’s capital.
In exchange, he gave a consolation prize to the Israelis and Jews withdrawing from UNESCO, but only in over a year from now. This made Trump look good and the Israeli government felt vindicated. Good deal?
Examples as the above abound.
As a testimony of Trump’s duplicity, he has surrounded himself by key globalists, above all those from his own family.
Let us look what is going on in that area while nationalists, conservatives are focusing on their Commander-in-Chief.
The Ivanka Factor
For once, words are needless in front of these testimonies.
Trump’s duplicity takes shape in his daughter. She is having a field day in her job as Adviser to the President.
Surely she is having meetings at the highest levels but also her media interviews set up to raise her profile worldwide, like the one with Dr. Mehmet Oz. And this article published in the Daily Mail published in the United Kingdom.
Recently, Mrs. Kushner has “touted the creation of a new World Bank initiative to foster entrepreneurship among women” for which she has been instrumental in gathering a whopping $350 million in donor commitments.
No wonder the World Bank President Jim Yong Kim has described her as the “driving force” behind the new initiative, to which the US itself pledged $50 million last July.
Next, came the interview with Sean Hannity, the Trump-family-friendly Fox News TV host.
Probably forced by criticism, we found there a Mrs. Kushner suddenly interested in America and Americans and working for “tax reform.”
But note that tax experts are wary waiting for that tax reform to be presented to the public, and they feel the measures will have not as great an impact as expected, or will be short-lived, or have a “due date” that will determine their ephemerality.
She then admitted that her “mission now, through job creation, through economic growth, is to empower as many Americans that I possibly can…”
Working for business women’ rights is one of the main items on the globalist agenda that aims at the destruction of the traditional family.
It is hopeless to see her promoting the defense of the unborn from day one all the way to his or her birth.
Over 50 million American babies aborted thanks to Planned Parenthood. Has Ivanka Trump ever condemned that? No.
With 50 million Americans there would have been no need to import the savage migrants that are coming to contaminate not only healthwise but also to take away jobs, to torture and terrorize the people.
Americans will never see the Adviser to the President focus on the millions American jobless and their families, but she worries about improving the ‘condition’ of women entrepreneurs around the world.
In Donald Trump’s words from his book “The Art of the Deal:”
“The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That’s why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. [Bold, mine.]
I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion.”
Now Americans should reflect on the President’s bravado when he shows them how he is promoting his America First-agenda.
Trump’s duplicity is in action.
Meanwhile, in a neighboring office his daughter frantically works for free, but with all the perks of a never earned rank, to advance her own agenda, Globalism, that advocates the destruction of all sovereign countries to be ruled by one global-billionaire-power.
The Dow Jones? Well, it goes up based on hope for a better future, until it goes down as soon as investors see no hope for better dividends anymore. The economy is based on hopes and crushes.
Meantime, quietly the globalist agenda is advancing at the hands of the most visible operative the movement has ever had.
As it succeeds, so will national borders worldwide fall one by one, national populations will then powerlessly witness total open immigration where jobs recovered on Trump’s promises, will be gone to migrants while locals will go on welfare.
If that happens, it will be thanks to the President and his daughter, and the public that did not want to accept the possibility of the upcoming debacle.
It is hard for me to write this, after all, I wrote “Why Trump?” back in August 2015.
For everyone’s sake especially America and Americans, I hope I am wrong. If so, as usual, I promise to apologize. That said, I have rarely been wrong.
No, Mr. President, no one can be both.
