Trump: The Warlord of Economic Savagery

Donald Trump’s decidedly neo-conservative administration is waging economic warfare through the combined imposition of tariffs and economic sanctions against nations on six continents. Trump’s policies, which fuse bull-headedness with oafishness, have wreaked havoc on the stock market, pension funds, employment, and overall economic stability on a scale not seen since the Great Depression of the last century.

For the last several years, the United States imposed crippling economic sanctions on Zimbabwe to force long-reigning president Robert Mugabe from power. The Washington “regime change” industry received what it wanted in November 2017 when Mugabe resigned from office amid popular street protests. Emmerson Mnangagwa succeeded Mugabe as president, expecting the US would drop its sanctions on the Harare government. Not satisfied with the removal of Mugabe from power, the Trump administration recently announced that it was extending sanctions on Zimbabwe for another year, citing Mnangagwa’s government as a threat to US security interests in Africa.
