Since President Wilson carried his Fourteen Points to the 1919 Versailles conference, the United States has been the world’s foremost promoter of human rights and democracy. However, now that Mr. Trump is the president of the United States, the country appears to walk away from that role. It is told that when Trump was asked about “I think it’s very hard for us to get involved in other countries when we don’t know what we are doing and we can’t see straight in our own country.” It’s true the U.S. human rights record is far from perfect, and presidential preaching — from Wilson to Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush — often has been bluntly rejected. But American pressure has also played in bringing freedom in countries, rescuing countless political prisoners and restraining abuses by autocrats like Mr. Sissi. Even powerful adversaries, such as Mr. Putin and China’s Xi Jinping, have been discomfited by U.S. human rights criticism and sanctions, including those under the Magnitsky Act, which mandated travel bans and asset freezes for Russian officials linked to such crimes as the killing in prison of a dissident lawyer.
Trump being elected as president of the United States is a shocking news all across the world. I personally think that this is a sad news to many countries such as Mexico. Mexicans have been immigrating to the United States in order to earn money for one’s family. I believe that the United States will become somewhat conservative in the future and I believe that this is not a good news for the immigrants who are in United States or planning to move to the US.
