Usualmente il Presidente degli Stati Uniti riceveva dapprima le alte cariche dell’Unione Europea, quindi quelle tedesche, canadesi ed infine del Regno Unito.

Il Presidente Trump ha deciso invece di iniziare i suoi colloqui partendo dal Regno Unito, seguito pochi giorni dopo dal Messico.

È uno dei tanti segni di una visione della politica estera differente da  quella dell’Amministrazione precedente.

«The newly inaugurated US President Donald Trump is due to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May this coming week, the White House announced on Saturday.»

«The meeting with May, which is set to take place on Friday, will be Trump’s first with a foreign leader as the long-standing US ally prepares to start negotiations to leave the European Union»

*

«May said she would use the opportunity to discuss the Britain’s future trading relationship with the United States, as well as NATO and the challenges of combating terrorism»

*

«Whenever there is something that I find unacceptable I won’t be afraid to say that to Donald Trump»

* * * * * * * *

Tutti gli elementi noti porterebbero a concludere che il Presidente Trump intenderebbe privilegiare il rapporto bilaterale con il Regno Unito a discapito di quello con l’Unione Europea. Questa nuova linea strategica differirebbe di molto da quella finora tenuta dagli Stati Uniti e potrebbe essere foriera di grandi variazioni in seno all’Unione.

Siamo chiari: in caso di differenti visioni tra Stati uniti ed Unione Europea, quelle degli Usa prevarrebbero sicuramente su quelle degli altri.

I giornalisti hanno pressato Mrs May sulla questione femminile. Liberals democratici, socialisti europei ed i loro media sembrerebbero essere ossessionati dalle questioni sessuali: mica roba normale, questa.

Mrs May ha glissato benissimo le domande, facendo notare che

«I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female prime minister»

Poniamo allora una domanda.

Di un primo ministro interessa il sesso, l’età, la razza, la religione, i gusti voluttuari oppure che sappia fare il primo ministro?

Nessuno si sarebbe mai posto una domanda così sciocca davanti a Mrs Margaret Thatcher, Premier inglese dal 1979 al 1990, Iron Lady.

Non sembrerebbero esserci motivi per non dover applicare un simile canone mentale anche a Mrs Theresa May.

Fa il Premier inglese perché ne ha avuto le capacità. Non ci risulta di averla mai vista dimostrare con un cartello inneggiante i ‘pussy hats‘.

Nota.

Un Deutsche Welle tutto sciatato ricorda come a Washington e per il mondo siano scese in piazza milioni di femmine al grido ‘pussy hats‘.

Ci si pongono alcune domande.

– Ma dove mai erano tutte quelle ragazzine dalla mussa incandescente quando si sono svolte le elezioni? Si stavano soddisfacendo con un qualche giocattolo ad hoc?

A noi risulterebbe che il Presidente Trump abbia stravinto le elezioni presidenziali, quelle per il Congresso e quelle per il Senato. Si tengano pure i loro ‘pussy hats‘: non sono certo serviti a far voti.

– Lasciando l’Unione Europea a seguito del Brexit, il Regno Unito contrarrà con gli Usa legami preferenziali in campo politico, economico e militare?

*

Sinceramente parlando, i problemi politici, economici e militari sembrerebbero essere di competenza del Presidente degli Stati Uniti più di quelli delle vogliose brame delle ragazzette.


Deutsche Welle. 2017-01-22. Trump to meet with British PM Theresa May in first foreign leader visit

US President Trump will receive UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday in his first meeting with a foreign leader. He will also meet with Mexican President Pena Nieto, after insisting that Mexico pay for a border wall.

The newly inaugurated US President Donald Trump is due to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May this coming week, the White House announced on Saturday.

The meeting with May, which is set to take place on Friday, will be Trump’s first with a foreign leader as the long-standing US ally prepares to start negotiations to leave the European Union.

In an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Marr on Sunday, May said she would use the opportunity to discuss the Britain’s future trading relationship with the United States, as well as NATO and the challenges of combating terrorism.

May ‘won’t be afraid’ to challenge Trump

Although she said she looks forward to expanding the “special relationship” between London and Washington, she said she wouldn’t back down from speaking up if Trump says something “unacceptable.”

“Whenever there is something that I find unacceptable I won’t be afraid to say that to Donald Trump,” May told the BBC.

May’s interview came on the heels of massive women’s protests against Trump that were held around the world, drawing millions of male and female demonstrators. In London alone, organizers estimated that 80,000 to 100,000 people took part in the march.

The British prime minister did not directly answer questions as to whether she would address some of the derogatory comments Trump has made about women. She did say that her presence in the meeting as a female world leader will be enough of a statement.

“When I sit down (with Trump) I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female prime minister,” May said.

Meeting with Mexico

Trump will also meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on Saturday.

The two leaders spoke on the phone and scheduled to meet on January 31 to discuss trade, immigration and security, Spicer said.

Trump is committed to renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), signed in 1994 with Mexico and Canada, and said he would withdraw from the deal if no “fair deal” is forthcoming, the White House website states.

Another point of contention lies in Trump’s promise to build a wall on the southern US border to keep migrants out and make Mexico pay for it – possibly by blocking wire transfers out of the United States from Mexican nationals. Mexican officials have repeatedly said their country will not be paying for a border wall.

During his presidential campaign, Trump also called Mexican immigrants “rapists.”

The Mexican president’s office said that Pena Nieto congratulated Trump during his call and that both parties agreed to open “new dialogue.”
