President Donald Trump has shown so much strength in his role as the leader of the free world that it is becoming infectious. Despite not being a traditional ally of the US, the Nigerian military is taking notice and following suit.
“They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back,” the president said to reporters earlier in the week, referring to the caravan of aggressive invaders making their way to the United States. “I told them to consider it a rifle. When they throw rocks like what they did to the Mexican military and police, I say consider it a rifle.”
Those are the words that the Nigerian military used to justify its heavy-handed tactics against unruly protesters in a Twitter post, resulting in an alleged 45 deaths. Nigeria has since deleted the post.
“We released that video to say if President Trump can say that rocks are as good as a rifle, who is Amnesty International?” Nigeria Army spokesman John Agim said to the New York Times. “What are they then saying? What did David use to kill Goliath? So a stone is a weapon.”
That is certainly a good point made by Mr. Agim: Who is Amnesty International? Who gives them their money? Is it subversive anti-American socialist lowlife George Soros? Why should this group dictate to sovereign nations what actions they can or cannot take? These are the types of questions that Trump’s bold leadership is causing in people’s minds throughout the world, and it is driving the political establishment to madness.
Globalist hacks are predictably up in arms.
Sickening. Under scrutiny from human rights orgs for firing on a crowd of protesters, the Nigerian Army tweets Trump from yesterday telling US troops that any migrants throwing rocks should be handled as if they are armed with “a rifle” 1/2 pic.twitter.com/2udS9fgAhm

This is despicable and this is what "global leadership" looks like under the Trump administration.https://t.co/pJRrS13ryc

“This episode makes it crystal clear that Trump’s rhetoric matters in a very concrete way,” lefty organization Human Rights Watch said in a statement. “His recent inflammatory statements, made days before the US midterm elections, have clearly been seized upon by some in the Nigerian military as an abusive new standard to which they would like to adhere.”
Regardless of this whining, it is simply not the business of America how third-world countries like Nigeria handle their affairs. People will kill other people in Africa, as it has been for thousands of years. Trump’s ‘America First’ policies will make sure that our country does not fall to that level, and his strong unyielding rhetoric will help those same policies succeed.
