Trump is officially the 45th president of the United States of America!

As a non-American and a citizen of a country that does not have democracy, I am in awe of how a businessman cum reality TV star is able to be the president of a country. Sure not everyone is a fan of Trump and have voiced their anger by protesting and practicing their freedom of speech - but yet, what good can come out of it? This man is now the official leader and commander in chief of your country, America! And he has promised to make your country great again! Not only that, he even reminded you during his inauguration speech that you, the American citizens are now in power.

"Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another -- but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People." - President Donald J. Trump, 2017

Ok, maybe that speech was somewhat a little too dramatic for my liking but my point is this. This man has made an oath to preserve, protect and defend the constitution of your country. God knows why he decided to run for president when he of all people, could've just go about his business running his multi billion organization and host the next few seasons of The Apprentice and then retire in peace. Dude's 70 years old for Christ's sake. The official retirement age for people in Brunei is 60 years old and yet - he's taken one of the hardest job in the world i.e to lead the country. 

But even before he started his official duty being the president, a good percentage of Americans out there are already doubting him. And this baffles me. Rioting and protesting won't solve the mounting debt America has accumulated over years. Hashtagging #NotMyPresident won't solve the ISIS crisis the world is facing either. Yes, he may not be the person you voted for few months ago but the reality is this - Donald J Trump is now officially the 45th president of the free world. If I were an American, I would hope for the best that he'll truly make my county great again. If he does, wouldn't that be a good thing for the country? I remember my parents going on their honeymoon to the USA and getting a few gifts that had the tag "Made in America". This somehow gave the impression that  the gifts were deemed more valuable than all the other stuffs I've ever owned. 


And that is what Trump wants America to be again. Great! The best of the best! The country that everyone still look up to! So why not just give him the benefit of the doubt and hope that he'll be able to "make America great again" during his presidency? If he does, then good on him and good on the USA. If he doesn't, then make sure he doesn't get re-elected for another term. At least you guys get to choose and do something about it. We, in Brunei can only dream of such things.
