SYRIAN HERO: Donald Trump HONORED by Syrians
We jokingly call Donald Trump, “The Donald.” But my bet is Donald J. Trump hasn’t actually had an official nickname his entire life.
A nickname is not usually how one brands himself. And, for Donald J. Trump, “Trump” is the brand.
But that all may be changing.
President Trump did what few expected. He did what his predecessor didn’t have the balls to do. Like it or not Americans, Trump fired his missiles.
The Syrians certainly appreciated it. One would think the world community would stand behind a man protecting innocents. But world be damned, Abu Ivanka al-Amriki took action.
Because President Trump punished Assad for his barbary, Syrians have a new nickname for President Donald Trump.
According to The Telegraph, many in the Arab world now refer to President Trump as “Abu Ivanka al-Amriki,” or “Father of Ivanka, the American,” on social media.
The Syrians nicknamed the president as a term of admiration. They respect President Trump for decisive action, where only threats had been made before.
“One Syrian tells me the new nom de guerre for President Trump on the ground in Northern Syria is Abu Ivanka al-Amriki,” a CNN international correspondent tweeted.
We recently posted an article on a CNN anchor getting a surprised reaction from a Syrian in America.
Apparently, all the Muslims don’t hate President Trump, aka Abu Ivanka al-Amriki
According to the earlier article,
Syrians in the U.S., too, praised Trump for the punishing strike, expressing relief that the U.S. finally acted against Assad, who has been brutally slaughtering civilians for years in an attempt to suppress the uprising against him. Many have expressed frustration over former President Barack Obama’s policy of avoiding direct action against the regime, despite repeated words of compassion and statements of condemnation for Assad’s brutal actions.
Other refugees spoke out as well.
“Six years of calling for help, we felt happy and grateful,” Kassen Eid, a Syrian refugee who survived a 2013 chemical weapons attack told Fox News following the strike. He, like many other Syrian refugees, hopes Trump’s policy change will eventually result in a safer Syria that will allow them to return home.
Believe it or not, these refugees do want to return home. And if Donald Trump gets his way, he may visit them one day.
Some restaurant owners in Syria have gone so far as to change the name of their shop in honor of Trump, reports The Telegraph. One Syrian man who opposes Assad told the outlet he wants to name his first son after Trump.
“Maybe you in the West hate Trump, but he has already done far more for us than Obama,” Najim Hassan, a Syrian who lives in a city occupied by rebels against Assad, told The Telegraph. “We love him because he does more than he says, he’s a man of action and at least he gives us something to hope for.”
