It’s expected to find a good amount of Trump supporters in the United States. After all, over 60 million people voted for him in 2016. What isn’t expected, however, is to find support for Trump outside of the U.S. Even less expected is to find support for Trump in the leader of an African country.
In fact, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni sounded like any other Trump supporter you’d meet here in the States. Speaking to lawmakers at the East African Legislative Assembly, Museveni said: “America has got one of the best presidents ever. Mr. Trump. I love Trump. I love Trump because he talks to Africans frankly. I don’t know if he’s misquoted or whatever, but when he speaks, I like him because he speaks frankly.”
How is it that in a couple of sentences, the president of Uganda has spoken far better of Trump than AMERICAN MEDIA?!
Regardless, we return to President Museveni. He continues with: “The Africans need to solve their problems. They need to be strong.” And that’s not the only instance of him showing support for the POTUS.
Museveni has even written an article titled: “The Confusion, Ingratitude as well as danger of Western Liberals & the Trump Therapy.”
He writes: “I have been closely following… World and African political events for the last 56 years. In those 56 years, I have noticed many happenings, behaviours, etc. One of the groups that I have observed with interest are the Western “Liberals”, “Leftists”, etc. In particular, I have noticed the confusion, ingratitude and, therefore, danger of these groups.” Starting off strong, I see.
“Liberals are supposed to be people who are not conservative and hardliners in economic, political and social issues. Leftists are supposed to be progressive as far as the same issues are concerned… Suffice it to say that the freedom fighters from Africa, who have been fighting colonialism, neo-colonialism, slave trade and marginalization for the last 500 years, would have counted the Western Liberals and Leftists among our automatic allies because these should be people that should be fighting for freedom and justice for all peoples, including the formerly Colonized Peoples.”
“Instead, we notice confusion, ingratitude and, therefore, danger from these liberals and leftists… During the US campaign, I noticed President Trump using the words: ‘convergence rather than divergence,’ while handling international affairs. That is exactly what the Western Liberals and Leftists should have been looking for. Instead, we would spend endless hours arguing with the Western Liberals on matters on which we cannot have convergence bearing in mind that our societies were still pre-capitalist and traditional while theirs have been industrial for centuries now.”
“These are issues to do with family, forms of democracy, homosexuals, central planning versus economic liberalization, etc. One had to control irritation to politely get through these meetings. Yet matters of convergence were there and uncontested: fighting extremism and terrorism… modern education in natural sciences and social sciences; the emancipation of women; trade; democracy; etc. This is what, in brief, I regard as the confusion of the Western Liberals and Leftists… By the Western Liberals trying to impose all their views and values on everybody in the World, they generate not convergence but divergence and even conflict.”
It’s a rather lengthy article, but the best part comes in the final paragraph. When talking about powerful nations coming together to solve the world’s problems, Museveni writes: “This is where Mr. Trump comes in. He says: ‘Why do we not examine the possibility of working with Russia against common threats, such as terrorism?’ The liberals then shout that Mr. Trump must be having a secret agenda with Mr. Putin etc.”
Museveni has also praised President Trump multiple times on Twitter and, according to the Daily Wire: “A further review of Museveni’s Twitter account reveals no such praise or adoration for former President Barack Obama.”
Overall, I think it’s incredible to find such an ardent Trump supporter leading an African nation. Clearly, he’s not at all offended over the reported remarks made about countries such as Haiti and African nations. On contraire, he supports these remarks. He thinks that Africans should be stronger and look to solve their own problems. THAT is the mark of a leader. While accepting and even asking for help is ok, looking to make your nation stronger and your people stronger and solve your own problems is even better.
A strong leader wants to make his nation and people strong and does whatever he can to do that. That’s what Trump wants to do and is working very hard to do. That’s what Museveni wants to do and seemingly is working to do as well.
I’m also glad to see Museveni calling out the Left in this manner. While the Left claims that Trump is a divider, Museveni can see that Trump is trying to unite people and the world. He’s already helped out Russia with a potentially serious terrorist threat in St. Petersburg, which Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked the POTUS for his help. And last weekend, while the Women’s March was happening, Trump tweeted: “Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!”
Of course, if you read my previous article, the Women’s March was nothing more than a massive hate-fest centered around attacks on Trump. Funny enough, this is where the ingratitude part of Museveni’s article comes in. Trump is doing wonders for the country, and these people were marching to reverse all of that.
So regardless of Trump’s call to support the women marching that day, the Left still spewed nothing but hatred and insults at him. Regardless of Trump’s effort to unite people in this march, the Left made sure to keep people divided.
It’s so obvious that even the president of an African nation was able to call out the Left’s b.s.
Regardless, I appreciate President Museveni’s words about our president.
