    But they've all fallen into the trap.

    What I'm saying is that Trump's opponents jump on every comment he makes that can conceivably be interpreted as having racist undertones and they amplify it with a loudspeaker. They seem to love it. It gets very tedious and, as with CNN the other night, it makes them look ridiculous.

    One of the symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome is that it persuades people to make overtly racist statements while claiming they are attributing them to Trump. You've illustrated that perfectly. And I'm sure you're not a racist yourself. When Trump allegedly made the s***hole comment recently, CNN apparently repeated the word 36 times on its programmes that day, while also having guests who seemed to glory in using the 'n' word while suggesting they were saying what Trump would say. If anyone is promoting racism, I'm afraid they are. They really need to look at themselves.

    Absolutely true, but it doesn't contradict my basic point that the loss of its most enterprising people doesn't benefit the country they leave behind.

    The Haitians haven't yet fully recovered from the 2010 earthquake, which devastated the country. One of the things that strikes me about countries like Haiti is that some of the most enterprising and professionally qualified members of their population must have a great incentive to leave and pursue their future life elsewhere, especially in the USA. No one can blame them, but it would surely be better in the long term if they were to stay and rebuild their own country.
  6. Army adverts

    Not sure you're correct about Moore. His great heroine was Margaret Thatcher, the subject of his biography, who no doubt had at least as much to put up with from males who thought politics and warfare wasn't for women.

    So presumably the advert that you saw in 1989 persuaded you to join up. I assume therefore that it did its job.

    In the New York Times this week, David Brooks, who has been one of Trump's most trenchant critics, made a perceptive point. “The anti-Trump movement, of which I’m a proud member, seems to be getting dumber,” he said, which was mainly in response to some of the crazy reactions in praise of Michael Wolff's book. Perhaps it's a signal that the opposition to Trump may grow up a little and be less hysterical. But there are no guarantees.

    Endlessly talking about race tends in the long run to alienate a significant proportion of those in the racial groups the party doing the talking purports to represent. Ultimately many of them don't like being used as a political football. I'm not suggesting that the Republicans will win a majority of African-American votes, but I think it's feasible to aim for around 25 per cent.

    Just as Hillary Clinton did. I'm not sure the Democratic Party would select her, and they would probably be wise not to do so.
  11. President of USA (Merged threads)

    I think we should leave it to African-Americans to decide how they are going to vote. I'm sure they are capable of making their own minds up. Change of this sort tends to happen slowly, but I think it will edge that way.
  12. President of USA (Merged threads)

    I'm not quite sure what point you're making, but it seems to me that Trump is trying to detach the African-American vote from the Democratic Party.
  13. President of USA (Merged threads)

    I've no idea. I don't recall his words on that topic. Happy for you to educate me though.

    On the other hand, if someone else had come out of nowhere with no prior political experience, taken on the political establishment in one of the two major parties, defeated them, and then had beaten someone who was supposed to be virtually unbeatable in the Presidential election, he would have been acclaimed a near-genius. So maybe, putting narcissism aside, he is!

    The unemployment rate among African-Americans has fallen to its lowest rate since around 1972.
