As a new United States president is elected, the fear of World War 3 Trump rule also escalates. According to reports and analysts, the Republican’s rule might spell out a nuclear war even Western alliances are worried about.
Apart from the divided reactions of Americans, the rest of the world also has opinions on the new president of the country. The divide for its citizens are usually between those who are happily celebrating and the distraught. While world leaders have a different concern.
Being one of the world’s super power and having been allowed to carry their own nuclear weapon, America is a country greatly relevant to peace-keeping. Apart from that, the country is also a key player in economics as well as diplomacy.
So, it comes with no surprise that the US presidential elections has become of importance around the world. Countries as far as Russia, the Middle East, Asia and Europe are all affected and concerned about the next US president.
When Donald Trump was announced the victor, many countries including its western alliances felt somewhat worried. Even analysts have speculated World War 3 Trump theories.
World War 3 Trump!
In a lengthy analysis by Mirror, the publication reported the possibility of war under Trump’s rule. While the rest of the world were in careful scrutiny, Russia was celebrating his win.
While everyone knows Russia and the US (as well as NATO) are not the best of friends, Russian president Vladimir Putin warmly congratulates the US president elect.
No To NATO?
However, its western alliances are worried because of his previous statements about the NATO being obsolete. There is also a possibility that US under Trump pulls out of the alliance. In fact, the Republican threatens removal of support for NATO.
Dr Brian Klaas of the London School of Economics says that Trump’s rule might mean Russia is let loose.
“I think we woke up in a much more dangerous world than the one we went to bed in. The US pulling out of Nato would be the most dangerous development in decades – since the end of the Cold War,” Klaas said.
“Nato depends totally on American leadership and American willingness to come to the aid of allies unconditionally. Therefore, to have a president in the White House who is not necessarily prepared to do that weakens the alliance immeasurably,” added General Sir Richard Shirreff, NATO deputy supreme allied commander for Europe.
Let North Korea Be, Nuke ISIS and Iran?
Express UK also shared that apart from his possible future ties with Russia, the president elect also said in his campaign to let North Korea be.
However, that’s not the case with Iran. During the campaign, the Republican threatened to shoot Iranian boats off the shore. He also says he will also make it difficult for the country to acquire nuclear weapons.
Top on his priority is also the eradication of ISIS. He plans to do this by working with other countries, saying “work with our Arab allies and friends in the Middle East in the fight against ISIS”.
“We cannot let this evil continue. Nor can we let the hateful ideology of radical Islam — its oppression of women, gays, children and nonbelievers — be allowed to reside or spread within our own countries. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism, just as we have defeated every threat we have faced in every age before.”
While some of his objectives remain to be about peace-keeping, experts are doubtful. We just hope the new US president is not a war-hungry ruler and that peace will be indeed his aim.
