Opinion – President Trump flunks a moral test – Lexington – Economist

Here’s a damning and brilliantly incisive article from the Economist. It highlights that Donald Trump, a man of strong views, proves oddly ambivalent—once again—about white supremacist violence.

The Economist article is rightly very critical of Trump’s failure to condemn the ‘white supremacists. The world’s media is beginning to wake up to the reality of a Far Right US president in power.

For example, the NYT Twitter headline highlights, ‘Trump is often seized by caution when addressing the violence and vitriol of white nationalists and neo-Nazis‘.

The inference is that Trump’s power base includes white nationalists and neo-Nazis and by protecting his power base, Trump leaves us questioning whether he’s simply a white nationalists and neo-Nazi himself?

The Economist’s moral test is important but more importantly it questions Trump’s judgement, leadership and fundamentally why’s he still running the US?

Liberals in North America and around the world will start to question whether Trump’s America has simply become a fascist state?
