It’s probably just Trump to be honest. I could see someone like Oprah being very popular. She’d be establishment in a way that the MSM in America would understand - not Fox obviously. Because really it just comes down to the media understanding you / feeling like it has a nice cosy connect to the hub of power. Aside from the racist stuff, Trump’s politics is basically the same as any other U.S Pres.


#1323

Not really. I don’t see any other president in the last twenty years making the same geopolitical decisions.

And that’s because his knowledge of politics, both national and international, is very limited.


#1324

What’s he done geopolitically that’s overtly different than previous Presidents?


#1325

Trade wars with major nations simultaneously?


#1326

Tbf, there was the Taiwan thing, the Jerusalem thing and the North Korea thing.

Edit: oh yeah the recent Canada thing too^^


#1327

Ah those things!

Yeah I forgot those.

Fair point then @Jules

Still I don’t think any of this has particularly impacted on how Americans in general and the establishment view him. Think my initial point still holds. He’s loved / despised for his manner and personality mainly + racism. His economic outlook is happily elite. Still lots of room for another celeb in the White House.

Plus

  • Pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord
  • Ripping up the Iran Nuclear deal
  • Leaving the UNHRC

Oh I agree. America are not done with their celebrity presidents.


#1329

Forgot that as well lol.

Whether others would pull out of it entirely or not, his climate scepticism is pretty damn mainstream. When he was still a nominee I remember only of the Republican nominees would actually say that climate change/global warming existed, and even then he was of the opinion that it wasn’t caused by humans but was a naturally occurring phenomenon that we couldn’t/shouldn’t do anything about. The other 8 or 9 including Trump (however many there were in total) all refused to accept it even existed.

It won’t happen. Boris is going to lay in front of the bulldozer.


#1333

The man is a careerist coward


#1334

Construction will be halted in mid 2020 due to falling passenger numbers.


#1335

Seems like a massive cost and undertaking for something that causes more issues than it solves and will be a massive cost/pain to deliver.

At least Boris is getting shown for the charlatan that he is


#1336

Fantastic news

#1338

its fucking ridiculous now, its happening so often that it almost isnt news anymore its feels like almost every month we are hearing this sorta shit is going down. I feel when they catch the motherfuckers that are doing this if they havent killed themselves already like the cunting cowards that they are there should be no mercy i feel they should be executed. If found guilty and there is no doubt i feel they should be killed on the same day.
