The United States of Donald Trump

US President tightens rules for legal immigrants. He discriminates, punishes weakness and goes one step further to impose his vision of the world on America.

But now, it also addresses people who enter the country legally and seek a green card.

In the future, immigrants should no longer receive green cards if they use housing subsidies, food stamps or the Medicaid public health system. Anyone who already has the green card and is applying for citizenship will not receive it if they use public funds.

It was not different even under the reign of Barack Obama. Candidates for the green card must prove that they can afford financially. A job is obligatory so as not to weigh down the American taxpayer. The promise of the American dream has always been associated with difficult conditions, especially economic ones.

But Trump now wants to punish working immigrants and even have an apartment, but may need temporary medical assistance or social services. The calculation of Trump is obvious: so not only less, but only nice immigrants will try their luck in the United States.

Social inequality in the country is exacerbated

Therefore, in the future, those who are already in the country, for fear of losing their green card, could no longer ask for the help that they deserve legally. Thus, social inequalities in the country would only worsen. The National Immigration Law Center, which has already announced a lawsuit against regulation, and other NGOs estimate that several million people are affected, and the government speaks of just under 400,000 people.

Trump has never withdrawn or denied that, why should he. Nationals from affluent countries, such as Norway, would prefer it more than those from Haiti or African countries. Trump's worldview, as everyone knows: Norwegian carpenters cost less and cause fewer problems than Sudanese servers.

But there is also a different view of American traditions: that of a country that has always welcomed immigrants, based on its history and largely on its economic success. During his briefing, a journalist reminded Cuccinelli of what America was always proud of: "Give me your tired, your poor, your enslaved masses who want to breathe freely." So he stands on a bronze plate at the foot of the Statue of Liberty.

Of course, the comparison with the iconic symbol of America is derisory and it would be naïve to believe that immigration to the United States still works that way. In essence, however, the Trump government wants to deny the words of the bronze plaque and change the narrative. Donald Trump wants to shape the country according to his vision of the world, at all levels. And again and again, he describes this painting as racist, misogynistic, offensive and contemptuous of those who, according to Trump, are weak. Some immigrant groups are among the weakest of the weak – and should remain in the future in the future.

At every settlement, Trump continues to make its own tradition

Criticism of the Democrats, the announcement of the NGO complaint, Trump has certainly also been taken into account here. The lawsuits have never scared the government. Critics are a source of recognition for tweets and appearances in campaigns. Trump's visits to the Dayton and El Paso disaster showed him again last week. For Trump, everything is in the field. He can also travel the country again with this initiative and present his constituents a "promise kept" against which his opponents know how to help in case of complaint. But as Trump still sees the judiciary on his side, he will reject it with a "thumbs up". Even the courts will follow his interpretation of American traditions.

And with every regulation and presidential decree, Trump works on his own tradition. The United States of Donald Trump. It is not beautiful.
