It would probably be for the best if Trump left or was expelled from the Republican Party – otherwise, he is likely to destroy it.

My colleague John Gelmini has predicted a long time ago that Trump, a close personal friend of the Clintons, would go independent.

The thing is, given his popularity, are the Republicans ready to excommunicate him?

Unlike the BBC’s alarmist article, the Post’s article is actually well argued. The thread is that Trump uses similar tools to fascists. So the conclusion is that Trump is a fascist and America’s modern Mussolini.

Again, I say that I don’t agree with Trump but surely it’s better to debate the issues rather than this extreme character assassination?
