So, Donald Trump is now President of the United States of America, and its Commander-in-Chief.
In his inaugural speech, Trump made no reference to his party, Congress, or any other means by which he expects to accomplish the sweeping change he promised. Instead, he once again promised that he personally will deliver a national restoration: “I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down,” he said. “America will start winning again, winning like never before.”
As the American people – and the rest of us around the world – awake to a living nightmare, the revolt against Trump is gathering pace. Hundreds of demonstrations and protests in the US and around the world show Americans will not take this lying down.
Abandoned by a pathetic Democratic Party – itself in bed with the likes of Goldman Sachs – and after eight years of Obama doing very little except shore up the system – they are taking to the streets.
Those hoping for work refurbishing America’s crumbling infrastructure built in the 1930s during Roosevelt’s Second New Deal will be disappointed with what will be on offer. Labour will be priced at the world’s lowest levels, competing with robots.
Trump’s election marks an ending of the American democratic process. He personifies the merging of corporate and political matters into a corporatocracy. Democracy, as Americans have known it, is now the form for something quite sinister and dangerous. His inauguration marks a move from democracy towards tyranny.
