Why Donald Trump Becoming President Could Spark World War 3 and/or an American Civil War

Updated on September 2, 2016


Before the article begins I would like to make it clear that I am neither for or against, any presidential candidate. Furthermore, any mention of possible future events is speculation. Speculation based on the traits and behaviour displayed by Donald Trump.

Who is Donald Trump?

Donald Trump is a business person, television personality, author, politician and most notably the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States. Trump has achieved all of this whilst maintaining his position as chairman of The Trump Organisation, that's quite a résumé! Although Trump is hated worldwide his success cannot be ignored, boasting a net worth of $4.5 billion as of August 2016. Such a feat can only be accomplished by someone who is highly intelligent, hard working and determined, all traits perfect for a future president. So why do I think disaster would strike if Trump was to win the election?

Impulsiveness and Rash Decision-Making

Don't believe Trump is impulsive? One look at his Twitter page would surely change your mind. Here are a few things the potential future president has posted online:

Those posts were only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to inappropriate things Trump has posted to Twitter. A vast majority of the content displayed by Trump on social media is unnecessary, and often outright offensive. It is clear to see Trump disregards any repercussions his statements may have, which is highly concerning. Although it could be argued that these are only tweets, if Trump were to win the the election and this behaviour continued, it could lead to serious issues.

When it come comes to rash decisions made by Trump, countless examples spring to mind. Perhaps the most infamous example is the apparent mocking of disabled New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski. Kovaleski suffers from Arthrogryposis, which affects the movements of joints. At a rally in South Carolina Trump was referring to an article published by Kovaleski in 2001. Here Trump begins mimicking the reporter, while simultaneously waving his arms in the air at odd angles.

It really begs the question; should we give a man like Donald Trump the power to launch nuclear missiles? In my opinion, absolutely not! It seems far to plausbile that Trump may decide to resolve a small feud with another country, by waging nuclear war. There's no doubt in my mind that Trump would hit that 'big red button' irrationally. He seems like the type of man that would invade Russia on a 'gut feeling'. Trump is far too easily provoked, and the weight of such a responsibility would ultimately crush him.


It's no secret that racism is still a pressing issue in the world today, and in recent years this has become particularly noticeable in the U.S.A. From shootings of unarmed black men and women inspiring entire organisations, such as Black Lives Matter, to the persistent black-white employment gap. The worrying part is, this racism takes place while an African-American president is in office. Now consider a man that failed to disavow the KKK in office, this would surely increase the number of hate crimes being committed.

Throughout his campaign Donald Trump has been under fire multiple times, for seemingly racist remarks and views. For example, he claimed that Mexicans were rapists that bring their problems and drugs into the U.S.A. Also, let's not forget about the time he condoned a group of Trump supporters beating a Black Lives Matter protester.

Footage of the Incident:

According to Donald Trump, it's acceptable to condone a racially motivated attack, if there's a possibility you may lose supporters for your campaign. To be honest, by this point I think Trump has offended everyone on the planet!

Taking into account that high profile white supremacists are amongs Trump's supporters, the Daily Stormer (a neo-nazi news site) and Richard Spencer to name a few, it's very possible Trump being elected could spark a Civil War. I say this because Trump has often made racist comments revolving around Mexican-Americans and African-Americans. The number of Mexican and African-Americans combined make up 28.5% of the US population.

With Trump in power there is a very good chance an uprising will ensue, which I know, isn't a Civil War. However, it is more than likely that Trump's white supremacist supporters would gladly go to war with Mexican and African-Americans, to defend their new found 'Saint'. I could genuinely see America divided 50/50, with Trump supporters and all white supremacists on one side, fighting against, a combination of all ethnic minorities and those who believe in racial equality!

Would you like to see Donald Trump as the next US President?

      Well, I have read this after the fact. He is now president. I personally think he is bombing places to divert attention that was focused on the Russian connections of Trump and his team.

      Gaming - I will check out his feed today. For a NYer, that is shocking.

      Ron, I still think Trump would be a puppet to whoever his aides are at the moment. That tug of war would keep him from actually doing anything. Plus, there's always Congress? We see that with the Mexican trip and then his demagogic speech that evening. Conway first, then Bannon gets a hold of him. But he's not getting elected, so I wouldn't worry about it. Georgia and NC are in play for Dems. That's nuts. I'm sure many on HP would disagree with me. :) Stay well, guys.

      First of all I would like to thank you lions44 for such an in-depth response to my article! Regarding your concerns over the authenticity of the last Tweet, as shocking as it may be, the Tweet was taken directly from Donald Trump's Twitter feed!

      lions44, I don't share your confidence that Trump wouldn't do his level best to govern exactly as he has run his campaign. Think about it: he blew away 16 other candidates saying and doing things totally outside what everybody said would work. Then he was told, by all the leadership of the GOP, that the approach that worked for him in the primaries would fail in the general election. If he were to win the presidency despite the near unanimous assertions of the elders of his own party that he was on the wrong track, what reason would he have to listen to them once elected? He would be so confirmed in his belief that he had proved his political instincts to be far superior to everyone else's that it would be psychologically impossible that he would change. Having been proven right against overwhelming odds and all the predictions of the political elite, why should he?

      IMO a President Trump would still be Trump.

      While I would never vote for the man (although I'm a long time GOPer), I don't really think he would govern as he is currently running. There is no threat of Civil War. The office of President tends to mellow the man (or soon, woman). It tempers your judgment and events drive the office, not the other way around.

      Also, that last tweet you posted about the jewelry district in NYC cannot be true. Anyone who grew up in NYC and does biz in the City would never say such an awful thing. I would check the source on that.

      The real story will be what happens to the Party after this election. It will depend on the size of the loss. If my prediction holds and Trump does not even get 200 electoral votes, Speaker Ryan's position will strengthen and Trump's followers, along with the Tea Party, will begin to fade permanently.
