It’s Time to Worry About Donald Trump – John Cassidy – The New Yorker

John Cassidy, a staff writer at the New Yorker is one of my favorite American journalists. In this highly readable article Cassidy suggests that right now the question isn’t whether Trump could win the Republican nomination, it’s ‘What is it going to take to stop him?’

As an international observer, this excellent article provides some clarificion on what’s happening in America’s Republican Party.

Many international observers are now exploring the reality of a Trump presidency. It’s hard to say whether this is destabilizing; perhaps this is all just a reaction to Obama‘s ineffective leadership?

This short article by The Hill is worth a read.

For me though, Trump is a showman and not a serious politician – whilst he’s managing to influence popular opinion, his political skills remain untested. Trump has three options: win the Republican presidential ticket; go independent; or resign from the race – time will tell.
