I think he might be trying to show the hypocrisy of the people crying about the so called ''Muslim ban'' as some sort of human rights disaster (whilst they turn a blind eye to the real atrocities committed against Christians in the ME)

Its the fake news media driving the hysteria and frenzy. America has supposedly lost its moral compass. You have clueless idiots all over the world lecturing America on what their "values" are to be.

All I can say is as they keep doing this to confuse the people in the world, more and more will question their fake news.

This is the most sober assessment of the hysteria I've seen, from National Review:
Trumpís Executive Order on Refugees ó Separating Fact from Hysteria

You think???? I think he might be crazy for baiting the terrorists and the Middle East in general into starting a war. Muslims and Christians are dying in the Middle East. Why should only the Christians be saved? Have we just stepped back into 1155?

Because the Muslims are supporting the ideology that's killing everyone and the Christians are not.

What do I win?

(By the way, I still know how to write a cross on a ballot paper, which is more than you seem to be able to do, lunatic ranting notwithstanding)

A right wing publication with a "sober assessment" of Trump.

No agenda, then?

I'm not so sure. I agree with Sandgrounder - think many terrorist groups are just going sit back and enjoy the show.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I think it bears repeating here, just in case anyone missed it:

PHOS DIDN'T ACTUALLY VOTE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.

As long as you don't live in a Democrat controlled ghetto. See if you can catch a glimpse of life in Obama's Chicago. An inconvenient fact they try not to acknowledge.

Excuses, excuses.

When I lived in a "safe" Labour seat back in the nineties, I still fulfilled my democratic duty. It's what my grandad lost his hearing for. It's what thousands of his generation died for.

People like you are a bloody joke. All talk and no action.

Anyone can write shit on an internet message board. How much more effort does it take to write a cross on a piece of paper, eh, Phos?

Too much effort for you, obviously.

Ah, the old the false equivalence. Nice one.

Trump is simply showing the hypocrisy of the regressive left.
For instance, people are starting to realize that you can’t really support things like Islam and gay rights as they are completely antithetical.

Interesting times ahead.

What do I need arguments for?

I can write an X in a box. That's how democracy works, you know.

Phos ought to try it sometime.
