The coming elections in the United States mark the deep divide prevailing within American society. While there are many liberals who hope to see the conservatives defeated, it seems that the voters won’t deliver a blow to President Trump whose policies did not yield the horror scenario foreseen by the leftist milieu around The New York Times. While Trump is a controversial politician who creates hot scandals on a daily basis, his politics have not brought the US to chaos; moreover, the American economy is flourishing, and jobs are being added at a serious pace, in addition to a historic rate of employment. Trump is probably a scandalous person with no intention of unifying Americans around inclusive politics, but his deeds make the average American believe that the country is safer, stronger and economically better under his leadership. It is evident that the leftist predictions that claimed the President would create economic and social turmoil because of his beliefs have been refuted. The Trumpist movement, considered by many to be an expression of the liberals’ temporary decay, is here to stay.
