Week in Review: The Trump Victory’s Effect on America, Europe and Asia, and Much More

by The Trumpet.com
(United States)



Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets Wednesday in at least 10 cities across America to protest against President-elect Donald Trump.

“Our people are being led into more and more lawlessness,” wrote Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, following the Bush-Gore election crisis in 2000.

“Human nature hates law. Events tend toward catastrophe unless law keeps us in check. … Events like the election crisis and human reasoning lead the people to trust our leaders less and less. Such things are causing our people to just look to themselves. ‘Every man did that which was right in his own eyes’ (Judges 21:25). This was the condition of our biblical forefathers—just before their nation collapsed and they went into slavery!”

Europe unhappy with Trump’s election

For various reasons, elites in Germany and Europe were clearly not rooting for a Donald Trump victory in the United States presidential elections.

German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel warned: “Trump is a warning to us as well. He is the harbinger of a new authoritarian and chauvinistic international movement.”
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said, “During his campaign, Trump was critical not just of Europe, but also of Germany. I believe we must prepare for American foreign policy becoming less predictable.”

Freelance expert on international affairs Olaf Boehnke told the Local, “There is a need of leadership, and if the U.S. will not be the leader for the time being, then everybody looks to other leading nations or those with the potential.”
“It is up to Merkel and to Berlin to step up, at least for the European crowd, and take on much more responsibility than she already has.”

Russia and China happy with Trump’s victory

After Trump’s victory was clear, the Russian parliament erupted into applause and President Vladimir Putin sent him a congratulatory telegram, saying he hoped “for cooperation in ending a crisis in Russian-American relations.”

Foreign Brief said on November 10 that Russia’s cheer was largely because of “Donald Trump’s suggestion that NATO partners must pay their ‘fair share.’”

In Beijing, wrote Time, “the glee among China’s political establishment was hard to contain.”

These two Asian giants are set to take advantage of Trump’s isolationism.

Other news:

Saudi Arabia has backed off a $23 billion oil deal with Egypt. Zerohedge called the Saudi Arabia-Egypt breakup a “Seismic Shift in the Middle East.” According to Zerohedge, the oil deal cancellation is just the latest sign of the deepening rift between Egypt and its Gulf ally.

On November 7, wrote Stratfor, the Chinese legislature “upheld a provision of Hong Kong’s Basic Law declaring that any official who does not swear allegiance to Beijing cannot assume office.” China appears increasingly unwilling to keep its promise to allow the city 50 years of autonomous rule.
