With Trump, America Will Still Be the Unipolar World Superpower

After his declared victory, Donald Trump, promised that : “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division; have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me.”

Trump spoke about America First and also about The World.

“We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals … we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us.”

Triumph of Traditional Conservatism

Of course Donald Trump will respect the American traditional conservatism because thanks to this concept he becomes the President of the United States. However, no one should have political illusions that new president Donald Trump would be a radical reformer be it in internal or external politics of America that everything change fundamentally, starting from scratch under the new doctrine personified by his name. On the contrary it will be follower and builder of the previous deeds, ideals, values, principles and vital interests of the American nation and state , developed and affirmed by 44 former presidents of the United States (1789-2016).

Moscow and Belgrade Most Happy for Trump Victory

Russia and Serbia in vain are misinforming their own public and world opinion, as well as they vainly are happy for Trump’s victory because he will change nothing in American policy in their political interest be it in Europe, the Balkans or the world.

This should be clear for all: Russia, Serbia, China, North Korea, Middle East, Europe etc.

Because newly elected American President Donald Trump won’t change foreign politics toward Europe and Balkans, regardless of Russia’s will and interest that in addition to America to assist and play the key role in solving international disputes and problems as before the Soviet Union in course of the Cold War era (1948-1989).

Serbia should not rejoice, and expect that America headed by Donald Trump, will help, to return Kosovo under the former colonial sovereignty of Serbia (1912-1999).

This will never happen because it would come to the decomposition of the unipolar system of the United States in international relations.

Therefore, particularly Russia and Serbia have no reason, rejoice so much for the new president of the United States. This is because the Unites States will not give up its role as a global superpower, as Number One in the world. It will continue its current course to be the most powerful country as economically, politically as well as militarily, playing the key role in solving international problems.

Despite Serbian “astrological” political propaganda alleging that Donald Trump will help Belgrade to return Kosovo under Serbia, it will never happen. The reason is that would unbalance international political relations, and strategic interests of America and its Western European allies (NATO and EU), as well as 100 other countries in the international community, which have so far recognized the Republic of Kosovo (2008-2016).

It would be understandable and acceptable that the new president Donald Trump will support the idea of American conservatism. This in no sense means he will abandon the strategy and the pragmatism of current Washington foreign policy by abstaining as the world unipolar superpower (1989-2016). Rather, Trump will further strengthen America’s role on the international scene as a strong factor in leading political, economic and military affairs in global dimensions.

Trump and Albanians in Balkans

Congratulations Mr. Donald Trump the president of America!

For Albanians in the Balkans it is quite alike who is elected the president of the United States, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton because both Democrats and Republicans have common historical, political, diplomatic, military and humanitarian merit in the salvation, liberation and independence of Kosovo from genocidal Serbia (1999). This, de facto and de jure is confirmed by the former American presidents Bill Clinton (Democrat who liberated Kosovo in 1999) and George W. Bush (Republican who recognized the independence of Kosovo in February 17, 2008). These former American presidents both are the heroes of Kosovo.

So, the election of Donald Trump for the president of the United States, Albanians (regardless of who voted for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton) they have no reason to doubt that official Washington won’t support them because the Republicans have proven as the great friends and supporters of Albanians on the occasion of the liberation and independence of Kosovo from Serbia’s terror and genocide, as were former Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, Secretary of State Condoolezza Rice, Robert Joseph “Bob” Dole, senator Joe Lieberman who said “The United States of America and Kosovo Liberation Army stand for the same human values and principles. Fighting for the KLA is fighting for human rights and American values.”

Even America’s new president, Donald Trump, will support the Albanians in the Balkans as former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama did too.

As above, regardless of how they voted, Albanians should not “tremble” from the newly elected president of the United States, Donald Trump.

Not only Albanians, but no one should feel intimidated or be skeptical from his victory, that would have caused any “tectonic tremor” on the stage of international political relations. Otherwise, will come the destruction of the New World Order of the former US President George Bush (1990-2016), respectively unbalance US relations with its Western European partners (NATO and EU), as well as other countries of the international community.

With verisimilitude, the election of Donald Trump as American president, will cause changes and adjustments in the strategy of American foreign policy, when it comes to defining the objectives and priorities of its primary function of protecting vital national and state interests of the United States of America. This will happen, but it would never be in disadvantage of the complementary interests of the United States and its European Western allies.

Indeed, the election of Donald Trump for the president of the United States, was an attractive surprise because Hillary Clinton was the favorite for whom I voted as a democrat. However, this should not be considered and interpreted as any sui generis “shock” in the face of the internal or external American politics even if Donald Trump didn’t come from political and military elite, but from private business as a proven billionaire. Around 60 million Americans voted for him. This number of the votes, according to the electoral system was enough that Donald Trump will become President of the United States.

Despite the popular vote and my great desire, that Hillary Clinton would become President, this desire was not fulfilled, because Donald Trump won thanks to the votes of the electoral college. All of us (republicans, democrats, liberals, independents etc.) must respect this because it is the legal and democratic American value.

– Congratulations Mr. President, Donald Trump!
