President Donald Trump: Reversing Government Overreach – who should control your natural resources?

President Donald Trump in this video captioned Reversing Government Overreach makes a comparative remark on how natural resources of Utah are managed. In Trump’s opinion which I fully support, central governments do not have a mastery of natural resources found thousand and thousand miles away. In my humble opinion, natural resources amongst other factors are the sources of conflicts worldwide and most especially in Africa where people have all but get nothing. Funny enough, the now African rulers are not interested in how citizens feel about how such resources are managed, they rather turn to European, Asian and other continents to buy dictatorship spirits and habits, and protection with natural resources. This is the definition of France’s relationship with its oversea territories especially in Francophone Africa as it’s called.
 Believe me or not, no African leader will make such assertions as Trump has done in this video because they want people to learn but they don’t want people to know. Such habits of keeping people in the dark turns to open new pages in people’s mentalities regarding their natural resource management. This you will agree with me has been part of the reasons for secessionist attempts in Sudan, Spain, and even in Cameroon. In this video which I hope you’ll watch, Trump says “Some people think that the natural resources of Utah should be controlled by a handful of very distant bureaucrats located in Washington DC.” Trump says that people with these thoughts are wrong. Take Utah for your area with natural resources and Washington DC for Yaoundé, you’ll understand that there is a wide margin between those who have and those who control. The families and communities of such areas know and love their land the best, they know best how to protect and conserve their land for many generations to come. Trump says “your timeless bond with the outdoors should not be replaced with the whims of regulators thousands and thousands of miles away.” Trump adds that “they don’t know your land and truly, they don’t care for your land like you do.

This is a fundamental truth and I never stop thinking and writing truthfully.
