He's desperately trying to turn the American people against the media. He's at least succeeding with his hardcores, who must be so far gone it's ridiculous.

He will never unify America though, he's obviously just going to drive it further apart. How can you unify anything with this level of bollocks.

I want to know though, what is trumps end Game? What is he trying to do? He can only serve a max of 8 years as president so is that what's he's trying to do, just get elected again, by getting enough people to support him? He's also old so by the time he's had those 8 years he would be ready for the old people's home.

All he seems to have tried to do since becoming president is become popular. It's clearly not working but he's still trying. I don't think he's won any extra supporters, all he's probably done is turned off some people who voted for him in the first place. If there was a vote now then he would probably have less support that in November. Why not just get on with the job and worry about getting elected again in about three years time?

His goal is to enrich his family, utterly destroy his enemies (read: critics etc), boost his brand globally, and become a heavily mythologized American demi-god along the same lines as Washington, Lincoln, FDR, JFK, Reagan et al.

Well that's not going to work, has anyone tried telling him? Maybe that's all it needs.

Telling him just gets you put on his gooseberry fool list.

I've been watching these since he became President and it's the usual 'Trump's a dangerous idiot' you would expect.

But my god this latest one. Some of these people getting into or being nominated for public office are genuinely despicable people. The lunacy on show begs belief. I think regardless of what happens, Russia has completely achieved its aim of destabilising the US and have exposed how truly broken the system over there is and how horribly split the nation has become.

This all begs the question: Will there be a revival of The Americans set in the present day?

Maybe so, but I think it's quite heartwarming to see members of almost every government department, even the White House, boiling over with civic duty to such an extent that they would risk their livelihoods, future career prospects and even freedoms to keep the people in the loop, even provide vital counters to official propaganda.

Not until 2018 at least and not even then if the Democrats don't win the midterms.

I am not sure the Republican majorities will be decisive. After all, they would surely prefer a straight up Republican like Mike Pence to the erratic and clearly deranged Trump. What matters is whether or not Trump becomes a liability to them. At the moment, they won't cross him for fear of losing support from their base, but if Trump's approval drops from 40 to 30, expect the question of impeachment to get more interesting.

Trump would have to do some astonishingly terrible for his own party to impeach him. Just normal Trump terribleness isn't going to be enough while the Republican's control everything.

Apologies if already posted.

China awards Donald Trump valuable trademark days after he agrees to honour 'One China' policy - US President struggled for nearly a decade to win the rights but see court rule in his favour shortly after his election

It's a crazy world when a slang term for farting is a valuable trademark.
