Hay helados para todos los gustos, pero la cuestión es siempre la misma: ¿en cono o en copa? En 1956 dos hermanos de Filadelfia decidieron expandir el dichoso dilema veraniego a todas las calles del país al crear Mister Softee, la empresa de venta ambulante de ‘softees” más popular de EEUU.

[OP-ED]: Donald Trump’s lost opportunity

 07/26/2017 - 09:12
Donald Trump could have quickly begun reshaping American politics. He heard voices that others didn’t, understood what those people wanted to hear and articulated much of it. But when it came time to deliver, it turned out that he had no serious ideas, policies, nor even the desire to search for them. EFE

There are many ways to evaluate the Trump presidency at the six-month mark. What I am struck by is the path not taken, the lost opportunity. Donald Trump had many flaws, but during the campaign, he tapped into a real set of problems facing America and a deep frustration with the existing political system. Additionally, he embraced and expressed -- somewhat inconsistently -- a populism that went beyond the traditional left-right divide. What would things look like at this point if President Trump had governed in the manner of a pragmatic, jobs-oriented reformer who was relentlessly focused on the “forgotten” Americans of whom he often speaks?

[OP-ED]: La oportunidad perdida de Donald Trump

 07/26/2017 - 09:08
Donald Trump podría haber rápidamente comenzado a reformar la política estadounidense. Escuchó voces que otros no escucharon, entendió lo que esas personas querían escuchar y articuló la mayor parte. No obstante, cuando llegó el tiempo de dar, sucedió que no tenía ideas ni políticas serias, ni siquiera el deseo de buscarlas. EFE

Hay varias maneras de evaluar la presidencia de Trump luego de seis meses. Lo que más me asombra es el camino no tomado, la oportunidad perdida. Donald Trump tuvo muchos defectos pero durante la campaña sacó provecho de una serie de problemas reales enfrentando a Estados Unidos y a una profunda frustración con el sistema político existente. Adicionalmente, aceptó y expresó, un poco inconstantemente, un populismo que fue más allá de la división tradicional izquierda-derecha. ¿Cómo se verían las cosas ahora si el presidente Trump hubiese gobernado como un reformador pragmático orientado al trabajo que se enfocase sin descanso en los estadounidenses “olvidados” de los cuales usualmente habla?

US Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with the presidents of Guatemala and Honduras and the vice president of El Salvador within the framework of the economic and security conference on Central America being held in Miami. The Alliance for Prosperity in the Northern Triangle was created in 2014 by the US, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador due to the wave of US arrivals of undocumented and unaccompanied Central American minors.
