The moment has arrived and the president of the United States, Barack Obama, visited Cuba in his Air Force One, not just with his work crew, but also with his wife, two daughters and mother-in-law, Marian Robinson.
Obama is finishing off his term breaking paradigms. In this sense, he visited Argentina and Cuba sending the same message to his country, which says that if the northern empire wants to continue to be a world leader, it needs to get to know the world and stop collecting enemies.
This situation explains, for example, the worry that the Donald Trump phenomenon has created in the U.S., as he has now become a “clear and present danger” for the system.
However, the world still has hope that the New Yorker’s show will end, even though the U.S. has already demonstrated that they have other methods so that a phenomenon like Trump doesn’t infringe on its interests.
Obama did everything in Cuba. He attended a baseball game, spoke Spanish, gave critiques of his own country and warned the Cuban government that nothing would be the same after his visit.
Like his predecessor Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” In this sense, Barack Obama planted the seed to show that he is making a structural change for a very well jointed policy.
In reality, his message was for all of the inhabitants of the American continents, to tell them that America should be for Americans, without military coups, without president assassinations and without any of what the U.S. hegemony has done since this doctrine has been established.
I understand why Obama doesn’t come to Mexico, but what I don’t understand is the cause for why our country is falling behind in the reconfiguration of the new world.
Our authorities should know that the trip to Cuba and Argentina redefines America and that they, as well as us Mexicans, are being threatened by the disgrace called Trump.
In this context, I think that our chancellor and our ambassador in Washington should take note of these events, like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s successful visit to the United States, Obama’s incendiary speech in La Habana and the tango that he danced in Buenos Aires.
Because when faced with all this, the question is clear: who cares about us?
