I'm not sure why there is such fuss about a wall. Australia and the UK both have natural walls. It doesn't present problems for Australia and the UK.

This looks to be a rerun of the Brexit vote, with the city types voting for sanity and the rural locations voting for disaster.

We live in a F**kwits' Universe now.

I hate what Trump stands for and everything he says.....

But.... This I hate even more.... ergo I probably would have voted for him just based on this one thing alone. I've suspected the West playing to the Saudis tune for a couple of years now and this just pours fuel on that fire. Give me the Russians or the Chinese at their worst over the Saudis any day of the week.

I agree

I don't know what all the fuss over Trump is about anyway. 200-odd years ago the Americans rebelled against rule by a king and designed a political system to prevent a king or emperor talking control. Trump will face the same thing that has faced every president before him - a parliament that is not a rubber stamp for their decisions. At the moment, the republicans and democrats can't stand him and his chances of passing contentious legislation are very limited

No, we live in a world where the elite are so arrogant, and so far up their own arses they wouldn't even dream it possible for the great unwashed to say '**** it, I'm voting for him, you've had your chance and you've done nothing but treat me like a ****wit'. He'll be assassinated because the losers can't take the result too. This is hilarious in my opinion.

Nope, we live in a world where people who have no clue how things actually work put in place people who are going to both shaft them AND screw things up.

Jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

You are right though, there is a good chance someone will shoot him, I just hope they get Pence at the same time, he's worse.

And it's that kind of sneering, looking down the nose attitude of our supposed "intellectuals" and "experts" that is reason for Brexit and the rise of Trump, Hanson etc

You mean people have a different clue to how things work.

Just like your opinions of the winners of the last election in Australia ......... and guess what, Australia is still flying high. ..... I wonder which high and mighty BE advocate might be wrong now.

You just don't get it. It is attitudes like yours that is exactly why Trump won, or is about to.

Politicians are there to represent and carry out the wishes of the people. Not look down on them, sneer and tell them that they are too stupid to know what is best for themselves.
