The Man called Donald Trump as POTUS and Malaysian Prime Minister known as Najib Razak
My American friends,
Please tell me more about the man called Trump who you put in The White House on November 8, 2016. I am unable to decipher him. Unbelievable. He has the audacity to tell you that your 44th President had ordered a wiretap on Trump Towers during the 2016 Presidential Campaign. It is an unprecedented act in US history where a sitting President accuses his predecessor of breaking the law with no evidence to support his allegation.
Mr. Trump is probably not aware that Mr. Obama is an outstanding graduate of the world-famous Harvard Law School and a popular President. While it is acceptable to be critical of his policies ( that is politics), it is at the height of irresponsibility to attempt to damage Mr. Obama’s integrity and reputation.
Tom Friedman’s comment, which I now quote, is worth noting. “There is nothing more dangerous than a US President who’s squandered his trust before he has to lead us through a crisis. But that’s happens when he’s surrounded by people ready to slather peanut butter on their chins. It greases the decline of companies and countries”.
I am not worried about you because you have judicial and legislative mechanisms in place to impeach a US President and a fiercely independent and free media to keep your politicians including your President in check. I am only trying to understand how your democratic system can take a Trump to The White House.
I thought it can only happen in a country like Malaysia where our legislature and our judicial system have become dysfunctional leaving a powerful Executive Branch in total control, while our media is neither free nor independent. That is why we have a Prime Minister, Mr. Najib Razak, who betrayed our trust with impunity since he came to power in 2009. He is a pathological liar and a corrupt and dishonest politician who surrounds himself with “people ready to slather peanut butter on their chins”(or carmas as we call them in Malaysia).–Din Merican
