Why the UK Needs a Trump Victory


As the US general election approaches, it is very much in our interests on who wins, there are some people in the Conservative Party suggesting it would be beneficial for Joe Biden to be inaugurated and to walk into the White House on 20th January, following the US general election next week. However, I think there'd be nothing worse than Mr Biden becoming the next President of the United States.

It is in our interests, as a nation, that President Trump is returned to the corridors of power next month. There has not been a such a pro-British President since Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, there has not been such a pro-market President since the aforementioned either; Trump is standing up to China and about time too, to break down the global monopoly held by them. No one nation should be a monopolist and that is exactly what China has become over the last decade and a half, on the watch of Joe Biden who was serving as President Obama's VP.

Over the last four years, Donald Trump has played China at their own game, he warned the American people and indeed the rest of the world about the danger of China's increasing power, long before we had even heard of COVID. He was laughed at. But now everything he has been saying is happening from China's cover up of the outbreak of the pandemic to how they manipulate markets with state intervention and other underhand tactics such as draconian, authoritarian laws on business and data protection. No European leader or American leader has ever achieved this, the EU has always talked about China becoming too big yet have cosied up even more to the CCP and its regime.

Britain is no longer "back of the queue" for trade deals as we were under the last Democrat administration, President Trump wants to do business with Britain, it is in both our interests that we sign a free trade agreement and rekindle that special relationship which has been somewhat forgotten until recently. Since Brexit, Trump has been in Britain's corner with his sceptical approach to the centralised powers of the EU and its protectionist agenda for internal markets and ridiculous tariffs on external nations, such as the USA.

With an FTA unlikely to be negotiated in the next few weeks, it is paramount that we see Donald Trump and Mike Pence elected as President and VP, not the liberal Democrat Party with sleepy Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President, the darling of woke capitalism. There would be absolutely no hope of getting a favourable trade deal with the latter two in Office, Biden was VP to the most globalist President in the history of America, he stood by and watched Obama deliver his infamous lines about Britain being "back of the queue" during the Brexit referendum in 2016, he watched Obama get too close for comfort to China, the list goes on. He advocated a full lockdown of America, this would not only cripple the American economy but the world economy, most nations rely on trade with the US, especially those which are developing their economies such as the BRICS nations and third world countries supplying raw materials and minerals for example. 

Not only has President Trump got the US economy back on track after the two disastrous Obama administrations following the financial crash, but he is primed and ready to rejuvenate the US economy post COVID. In addition to this, he is an actual conservative, not the half baked conservatism we often see in the 21st century, he actually stands up for Christian values and principles, something which is a refreshing tonic in this day and age of woke and liberal values; as President Reagan once said "if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism" and he couldn't be closer to the truth. ANTIFA, as they brand themselves are not in any way anti fascists, they are the thugs, causing chaos on the streets of the USA – yes of course black lives matter but they are not 'just an idea' as Mr Biden suggested, they are a group of anarchists with aims to bring down government and the rule of law as we know it. BLM, the organisation, are borderline domestic terrorists, looting, setting fire to property, often owned by black entrepreneurs and businessmen and women, for the sake of what? Certainly not Martin Luther King's dream, the Reverend would've been appalled at the way BLM are going about their business in hope of 'equality', when that really isn't the point, what they really want is ultimate control – an all equal society and the destruction of capitalism, similar to that in the Soviet Union.

Not only that, Trump has consistently defended our traditional Judeo-Christian values which so many politicians compromise on, yes he may not be perfect but he is the only politicians in a position of significance who has stood up for these beliefs and principles. He is the President of law and order, the President of justice, whilst the Democrats support an organisation that wants to defund the Police, he wants to fund the Police, President Trump is the people's President. He is the guy who stands up for the silent majority, he says what we're all thinking, yes he's blunt and yes he's brash but sometimes in politics that is exactly what you need, he is the man of the moment and is what America and indeed the world needs right now in this current climate. The woke agenda and fake news media outlets have been chipping away at our values and institutions for years now and Trump is the man who has stood up to these people and said 'no!'

Joe Biden cannot be trusted with the American economy, he cannot be trusted in negotiating a trade deal with Britain which benefits both sides of the Atlantic, like President Trump will do and he cannot be trusted to reinstate the US as the number one superpower and break down China's global dominance.
