    I can only assume you have been exercising selective deafness.

    Number one reason why Trump is a racist?

    Probably all the blatantly racist things he says. Such as labelling all Mexican immigrants “criminals and rapists”, attempting to ban all visitors to the US from Muslim countries, suggesting US born Congresswomen should go back to their “****hole countries”, that sort of thing.

    As for criminality, let’s just wait and see. In the States, money and power isn’t always a guarantee of immunity, although obviously it helps.

    OK.

    Post being president

    Ban on muslims entering the US

    Saying there were good people on both sides when white supremacists rallied in Charlottesville and murdered an opponent

    Saying that non-white members of congress should go back to their countries

    Called Haiti and some African states "****hole Countries".


    Prior to being president:

    Sued by the DoJ for refusing to rent properties to black applicants in the 1970's

    Took out full-page ads demanding the death penalty for the Central Park 5. (A year or two ago, despite their exoneration thanks to DNA evidence after spending a decade in prison, Trump said he still thinks they are guilty). It may, of course, be a coincidence that the CP5 are black

    Suggesting a judge (presiding over his long con the Trump University) should recuse himself because his ancestry was Mexican

    Here's a quote about a black accountant that he admitted is accurate: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.”

    Said that people who come to the US from Haiti "all have AIDS"



    How's that for a start? Do you still not think he's racist?

    These lines are from an article in today's Sunday Times:

    The Queen has privately expressed her disappointment in the current political class and its “inability to govern”, The Sunday Times can reveal.

    It is among the starkest political statements the Queen is known to have made during a 67-year reign, when her views on the political climate have rarely been exposed.

    The Queen made the comments at a private event shortly after David Cameron’s resignation following the referendum, but an impeccable royal source said her frustration had since grown.

    “I think she’s really dismayed. I’ve heard her talking about her disappointment in the current political class and its inability to govern correctly,” the source said.

    The monarch has remained scrupulously impartial throughout the increasingly toxic battles over Brexit. But in a rare insight into the Queen’s thinking, a senior royal source, who witnessed the exchange, told The Sunday Times: “She expressed her exasperation and frustration about the quality of our political leadership, and that frustration will only have grown.”

    The most telling part was ".....and that frustration will only have grown.".

    I challenge you! Has Trump done anything constructive in his time in the White House? Has he taken any action to reduce the amount of gun crime in the US? Obama tried but was blocked by the Republican controlled Senate.

    Secondly, what is so wonderful about the sanctions he has put on several countries around the world? From what I see it is leading to a world wide recession.

    Thirdly, what is so wonderful about a person who demeans people, who throws journalists out of his press conferences if he does not like their questioning?

    Good luck answering that!!!

    They should watch The Great Hack. She’s on that and as is the speech you post above.

    Have you seen it?

    Haven't yet will do soon thanks for the reminder. I'm amazed and dismayed that people either ignore or deny this and continue to support leaving, bonkers just 'kin bonkers. You would think the plummeting £ might ring a few alarm bells to.

    With Buffoon Johnson, allegedly, being prepared to ignore a no confidence vote, forcing the Queen to become involved, could Brexit signal the end of the monarchy, as we know it?
    The country is so divided over Brexit, putting the Queen in a position where she could affect the future of the country, one way or the other, could lead to an upsurge of anti monarchy feeling, especially if she refuses to use her power to sack Buffoon, leading to a devastating no deal Brexit that harms the lifestyle of her subjects.
    At the moment I am neutral with regards to the Royal Family, but should the Queen fail to step in, I would rapidly become anti monarchy.
