With only three weeks since taking office as the US President, Donald Trump has caused such a turmoil in his country and the world through his decisions [such as the travel ban order] that has thrown the entire US ruling system into disorder.
On January 27, Trump signed an executive order temporarily banning citizens and immigrants of seven Muslim countries, including Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Iran, and Iraq from entering the US.
The order, however, was later annulled by a US federal judge, and Trump’s appeal was also rejected in the US Court of Appeals.
Currently, the Supreme Court of the United States is the only remaining judicial body in the country to settle out the legal dispute between the Trump administration and the country’s courts of appeals, according to a report by IFP.
Commenting on Trump’s policies and the current tumult they have thrown the US and world into, Seyyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, the spokesman for the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran’s Parliament, said Trump’s undignified, unwise and racist moves and measures have overshadowed the American people’s lives and the US society.
“The outrage expressed by giant technology companies and factories as well as the riots started by American and non-American people over the past few days are all violent reactions provoked by Trump’s policies.”
The US economic system has been set up on the basis of immigrants who constitute the country’s cheap workforce, he said, adding it was quite predictable that Trump’s decisions and behaviour would spark off social riots and the US judicial system’s reaction.
“Interesting among the issues pertaining to the US courts of appeals is that although the country’s judicial system [itself] is accused of passing racist verdicts, it has decided to oppose Trump in the wake and face of his decisions.”
Pointing to the recent remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Iranian lawmaker said Trump has honestly displayed the US violent and racist face.
He stressed that Trump is a reflection of the US identity crisis, whose coming to power has been accompanied by the exposure of the country’s social crises.
However, Naqavi Hossein added, by rescinding his order, the US judicial system seeks to cover up the severity of these crises.
“What we witness today in Trump’s behaviour — which involves humiliating other nationalities — has roots in the US history and the way America, as a sovereign state, was formed.
“Trump is a fruit of the slavery system used in the US in the 19th century which forced coloured people into compulsory labour and led to the genocide of indigenous Americans [Indians].”
In case Trump continues to display his current behaviour, the US will be caught in a dilemma which would prove quite costly for the country and will definitely cripple its ruling system, he went on to say.
