Donald Trump’s election as the next President of the United States has certainly dominated headlines this week.
And the polarizing businessman turned politician is eliciting plenty of local reaction too.
One local artist is adding his contribution, a song praising Mr. Trump’s election and seeking closer ties between Cayman and the new administration.
Give a listen!
Cayman’s own Kurt Danlaw, also known as “Rasta Dan” wrote an ode to the president elect called “My name is Donald Trump” to potentially strengthen relations between the Cayman Islands and the United States.
He feels Cayman is “Not in a great way,” in his words, and he feels getting our country noticed in a positive way by the Trump team is one way to “Make Cayman Great Again.”
“We have a chance to make Cayman great, here is a chance for Cayman to make an excuse to get invited to the white house, I don’t think we’ve ever been there before and this is a chance for all the people of Cayman, all the politicians, everybody to get together and make a concerted effort to recognize Donald Trump and get him to recognize us because we need to make Cayman a better place,” said musician, Kurt “Rasta Dan” Anderson.
During his research, Rasta Dan found numerous songs dedicated to President Trump that were –shall we say– negative, so he decided to turn the frown upside down and make a positive song about the man who takes office next January.
