1. The reaction of the American political system to the civil protests has led the American democracy to critical situations to be judged by different societies. What is your assessment of this hostile reaction of the US government?
Unlike what Trump said that criminals, racist and rapists are coming from Mexico, they are sitting in the White House, the Senate. It's not just the statues of Andrew Jackson or just our democracy, the whole thing is coming apart. People are looking down we read our history again from a critical perspective from an objective point of view. They are questioning their brainwashing. We cannot idealize people who utilize others and it's time for us to question our bloody past. Every country every civilization has a bloody past and everybody's questioning that around the world. Donald Trump is not just the archenemy of the world. Donald Trump is the archenemy of America. The criminal justice system itself has degenerated into be criminal itself.

2. What do you think is the origin of this sort of behavior by the US administration?
If you actually read some of Abraham Lincoln's writings, there were quite a lot of racist statements. One of the things to keep in mind is that judging the past specially the leaders in the past based on today's norms, values, beliefs and standards is problematic in itself for so many angles. The Portuguese and the Spanish were a huge part of this slave trade in the United States. Believe it or not Britain was very much ahead of its time. They were very much anti-slavery.

It’s worthy to mention that this video conference is held regularly with several international subjects inviting various activists and analysts from different countries. (see the archive of The Fact web conferences)
