What Donald Trump Would Not Do by Femi Fani-Kayode

Read his piece below…

Four months ago I wrote an essay titled “Mr. Trump and Islam”. In that contribution I argued that Donald Trump, the American
entrepeuner and billionaire presidential candidate, was unstoppable.

I said he would win the nomination as flagbearer for the Republucan
Party and then, against all odds, go on to win the November presidential
election against Hillary Clinton.

The first has happened and, even though many in our country would
disagree with me, the second is likely to happen as well. In my view the
world needs Donald Trump and consequently I am with him all the way.

During the coming election debates he should do the Nigerian people a
favour and ask Hillary Clinton one question. That question is as

Why did she and President Barack Obama refuse to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organisation until late 2014?

This was after they had slaughtered over 100,000 innocent Nigerians in the space of 4 years.

If the victims had been Americans would they have taken so long to designate them as terrorists?

Is Nigerian blood not red and do Nigerian lives not matter?

Donald Trump would never have made such a mistake or tolerated such evil.

If he had been the POTUS for the last seven years and not Barack Obama
Boko Haram would have been designated a terrorist organisation five
years ago.

If he had been the POTUS for the last seven years there would have been
no ISIS today and Al Qaeda would have been history long ago.

If he had been the POTUS for the last seven years there would be no war
in Syria today, Ghadaffi would still be alive and Libya would still have
been at peace.

If he had been POTUS for the last seven years the American Ambassador
and four others in Benghazi would not have been murdered, the Muslim
Brotherhood would never have won an election in Egypt and Iraq and
Afghanistan would be in better shape today.

If he had been POTUS for the last seven years Al Shabab would have been
destroyed, Somalia would have been less dangerous, Israel would be safer
and Iran would not have been handed a “sweet” nuclear arms deal on a
silver plate.

Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State of America when all of these
things happened or were initiated. She therefore has to bear as much
responsibility for them as Barack Obama does.

Unlike Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, when it comes to foreign
policy, DonaldTrump is incapable of tolerating and accepting evil from
those who espouse terrorism and the cold-blooded murder of women and
children as a way of life.

That is the difference between him and them. He knows what to do to the
islamist terrorists and he will support any foreign government that will
take a hardline against those that slaughter innocents in the name of
their god.

He will crush those that wish to establish a new world caliphate in
which non-muslims and moderate muslims are slaughtered or turned into

Unlike Barack Obama he will not pamper the terrorists, encourage them in
some parts and treat them with kid gloves. Instead he will wage a hard,
full-scale, relentless and comprehensive war against them.

He will, like Russia’s Vladimir Putin, see it as a battle of the forces of light against the citadels of darkness.

He will view it as an end-time war between the sons and daughters of God and the emissaries and agents of satan.

He will decimate the ranks of the Philistines, the Amalekites, the
Midianites and all the other vultures, vampires and blood-thirsty
barbarians in our midst.

He will not support a Nigerian government that has a clear-cut religious
and ethnic agenda, that seeks to shame and dehumanise Christians and
that is attempting to restrict the spreading of the gospel of Christ.

He will not pamper and encourage a government that goes out of its way
to persecute and destroy all those that it perceives as a threat and
that it considers to be its enemies.

He will not encourage a government that destroys the morale of the
people, reduces their standard of living, destroys the economy and
squanders its resources.

He will not prop up an administration that joins an all-muslim
international military coalition even though the majority of the
population that it governs are christians.

He will not stand by a government whose army murdered one thousand
shiite muslims, bulldozed their homes and desecrated their graves simply
because they blocked a VIP from using a road.

He will not support a President who is incapable of reaching out to
those that refused to vote for him even in the name of peace and
national unity.

He will not encourage a government who wages a selective, vindictive and
nonsensical “war against corruption” in which the enemies of state are
locked up indefinately and the friends of the President and his ruling
party are above the  law and untouchable.

He will not support a government that wages a so-called “war against
corruption” in which only the President’s perceived enemies are
targetted and which is not based on any cogent evidence of any
wrongdoing but rather on coercion, intimidation, extortion, threats,
sensational lies, media witchunts, ridiculous and unsubstantiated
allegations and heinous disinformation.

He will not support a government that refuses to protect its own people
from the barbarians and terrorists known as the Fulani herdsmen and
which has made no arrests after thousands of non-Fulanis have been
murdered and raped by those same terrorists over the last one year.

He will not support a government that sat by silently and allowed
genocide to take place in Agatu and who encouraged the state-sponsored
murder of many young, defenceless and innocent  IPOB protesters in the

He will not support a government that calls in Blackwater mercenaries
from Saudi Arabia to wage war against his own people and is hell bent on
using his army to crush the militants and good people of the Niger
Delta area.

He will not cheer for a government that violates court orders, breaches
the constitutional and human rights of its own citizens and tries to
intimidate the Judiciary.

He will not stand by a government that tries to humiliate and muzzle the
National Assembly by destroying the Senate President and discrediting
that hallowed chamber.

He will not support a government that locks up its political enemies
and, despite court orders and public outrage, throws away the keys.

He will not support a government and a political party that is
surreptitiously trying to push a National Grazing Reserve Bill through
the House of Assembly in an attempt to grab southern and Middle Belt

It is for all these reasons and much more that I am an ardent fan and
supporter of Donald Trump. America needs him and so does the rest of the

It is time that we had someone in the White House    who is not fettered
by political correctness and who has the strength of character and
political will to do what has to be done to rid the world of evil.

That man is Donald Trump and despite what others may think I believe that he will make a damn good President.

Pernit me to end this contrubution with an aside.

On 29th July 2016 CNN reported that “the Nigerian government is
preparing troops for a crackdown in the Niger Delta if peace talks

This is sad and ominous. As United States Senator Ted Cruz once said
“the light of truth is stronger than the terror of darkness”.

It follows that the biggest mistake that the Buhari administtation can
possibly make is to attempt to “crack down” on the Niger Delta and kill
innocent civilians.

If this ever happens, for whatever reason, it will set off a chain of events that will lead to the end of Nigeria as we know it.

Nigeria will disintegrate before Buhari’s very eyes if any more innocent
blood is shed and if the towns, creeks and villages of the
oil-producing states are shelled and reduced to rubble.

Sadly the slaughter has already started with the reported bombing and
killing of over one hundred people by the Nigerian Armed Forces in the
creeks of Lagos, Ondo and Ogun states on the fringes of yorubaland all
in the name of fighting the Ijaw militants.
 The question is this: were those that were murdered and whose villages
were subjected to what the Nigerian media has described as “massive
aeriel bombing” innocent yorubas and Ijaws or were they war-mongering
and pipeline-vandalising militants.

The answer to that question remains to be seen but whatever it is one
thing remains clear: the cries of marginalisation and the cause of the
people of the Niger Delta, and indeed that of the Igbo people of the
eastern region, is rooted in truth and is manifestly  just. Their
struggles and aspirations are legitimate and reasonable.

Self-detetmination is a right. It is a concept and principle that is
universally accepted and that has the backing of international law.

You do not threaten to bomb those that seek to exercise that right: you
treat them with respect, decency and decorum and you attempt to persuade
them to stay.

This is a point that is lost on President Buhari and those around him.
The bottom line is this, the Niger Delta Avengers are not Boko Haram:
taking them on in the field of battle would be a monuemental error.

Violence begets nothing but violence and peaceful dialogue is the only
way to appease a people that have been maligned, cheated and wounded.  A
word is enough for the wise.
