Anti- Donald Trump protestors take to the streets to give vent to their grievances. Especially with the fact that polls showed that Clinton was up almost by 400,000 in votes. That served as the perfect backdrop of a grave warning by the former head of MI6, Sir John Sawers.
He sounded a warning that if Donald Trump was unable to control his fierce anger, then Trump win could result in an all-out nuclear war.
As Sawers opined Friday a “great military clash” was in the making if China or Russia does not read things correctly or if Trump himself “overreacts to something.” The alliance between Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, and Trump is well-known in political circles. The test of Trump would lie in placating China in order to contain the nuclear threat posed by North Korea.
Sawers confided on the program “World At One” broadcast by BBC Radio 4 ”We’re getting back into a world which is quite dangerous, and I think that is the biggest threat.” He added, “It’s got worse over the last five or six years partly because, frankly, one of the failures of President Obama’s administration is managing its relationships with Russia.” It is to be noted here that in the past Barrack Obama had expressed his frustration with the UK as an ally.
According to Sawers “I don’t think Donald Trump quite yet knows what the pressures will be on him when he becomes president. We’ve seen that when he feels slighted, when he feels criticized, he reacts quite fiercely … If you translate that into global affairs it could have consequences which are dangerous for everyone.”
Obama had made no secret that he did not trust Trump with US nuclear missile launch codes considering the temperament of the latter.
In fact, Obama mocked Trump just last week regarding his Twitter account being managed by others. He said “If your closest advisers don’t trust you to tweet, then how can we trust him with the nuclear codes?” according to thinkprogress.org
The bottom-line remains that with the Donald Trump win and his volatile temperament he is much more of a liability than an asset.
