Naïve, in fact, about his ability to find common ground with a GOP determined to undermine, even delegitimize him from Day 1.

Trump and All That –– A British Progressive Perspective

Trump and All That –– A British Progressive Perspective

BY PETER TATCHELL | Donald Trump rode to the White House on a wave of hate and vitriol – securing a victory for ignorance, intolerance, and incivility.
