Well, at least he’s got some sort of engineering skill

I’m to understand that he hails from a political family and opted to stay out of politics. Which is seen in how he decided to live a civilian life away from politics by becoming a system admin and migrating to the USA like many other folks from the area with enough skill also do.

That shows he’s a different sort of politician compared to the usual. How is that not in parallel to what’s going on in other parts of the world today? It’s easy to misinform people and misdirect information so that they form narratives, either ones based on some agenda or just outdated prejudice. Thank god for social media, or else we wouldn’t even be considering there are alternative narratives with only seeing subtle sarcastic hit pieces like this article here or the ones on the bbc. I’m not a Trump or brexit fan, but now I can understand why there might be some people who are for these things in the west.
