But who voted him in? Americans, wasn't it? There are those who say you've got what you deserve.....

Point taken, but Trump doesn't offer free accommodations. He holds an event in a Trump owned property and then bills either the Republican National Convention, or the American taxpayer. And, as for the 'free booze,' this would be Trump Vodka, or at least would have been, had the company not gone under. I don't know if you can still buy Trump Steaks, but considering who he puts in charge to run places like the Food and Drug Administration, I would stick with the haggis.

On anther note, I saw that Johnny Rotten is a big fan of Trump. My, how times have changed. I remember The Clash singing "I'm So Bored with the U.S.A." and yet now many are singing the praises of a foreign leader. What's up with that? In my many many years in the U.S., I've yet to meet a single solitary American who was similarly smitten and ga-ga over John Major or David Cameron or Tony Blair. We at least have the decency to fall for confidence men of our own making.

RJ,

I was living in the USA (Ohio) when Jimmy Carter was President, and a little afterwards, and the impression I had was that the people didn't think much of him. Up in Ohio, at least. When Reagan was voted in, it seemed to me that he was far more popular, even though to me and other non-Americans he didn't quite seem the full shilling. But at least neither of these gentlemen went about bad-mouthing other countries and the citizens of other countries. And incidentally, you missed out mentioning Margaret Thatcher, who was actually admired by most Americans that I knew and conversed with.

I suppose the true colours of any national leader only come out after he/she has been voted into high office - in 1933 most Germans genuinely believed that Adolf would be just the job for Germany.

It's a funny old world......

Graham

I don't know, RJ, seems kind of fitting. Johnny Rotten made a fortune from being an iconoclast with no discernable talent apart from being outrageously offensive in public.

I think they are all starting to realise they got what they needed.

We will probably never agree on this probably because our assessment of what america needed is vastly different from each other.

Sometimes you need to crack a nut, but that doesn't mean that you employ a sledgehammer to do so.

I just read this about what Trump will be given to eat later:

'They will be eating a three course meal of Scottish salmon, Hereford beef and strawberries with clotted cream.

Trump, whose mother was Scottish, will then be piped out at the end by the Royal Regiment of Scotland.'

They seem to be anticipating that Trump will dive into that cream and have to be piped out.

I hope the man stays well away from the Waterloo/Southwark area. I'm going up there for a couple of days to meet up with my daughter and I wouldn't trust myself if he tried to grope her.

Love,

Caz
