'What If Trump?' - The World Starts To Wonder

Austrian daily Die Pressewent for an ominous-looking front page Wednesday, asking "What if Donald Trump ...," as it imagines what a Trump presidency would entail. Building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border; a more hostile relationship with China; abolishing Obamacare; using torture methods to help defeat ISIS: The Austrian daily analyses four of Donald Trump's most controversial, proposals, as it becomes increasingly possible that he will be the Republican presidential candidate.

Indeed such a scenario crept closer, after the real estate tycoon scored big in his party's biggest day of primaries on Super Tuesday.

Trump and Hillary Clinton moved closer to a presidential face-to-face, with Trump winning seven states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia) and Clinton seven (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia) on Tuesday's balloting.

On the Republican side, Ted Cruz won his home state of Texas and Oklahoma while Marco Rubio garnered his first victory in Minnesota, Reuters reports.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders won his home state of Vermont along with Colorado, Minnesota and Oklahoma.

So far, 15 states have chosen their candidates, and 35 are yet to vote.

This explains why 143 out of the 193 member-states of the UN General Assembly voted against recognizing Russia’s illegal annexation of four Ukrainian regions after holding sham referenda there. Ninety-three voted in favor of expelling Russia from the UN Human Rights Council.

India has abstained from every vote in the UN condemning Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. The reason? Moscow is India’s top arms supplier and some 70% of India’s military platforms are of Russian origin.
