And if he wins, it’s a bonanza for lawyers

In less than 24 hours Donald Trump could be the President of the United States. This may not be good news for a number of people, among them:

Muslims. In December 2015, the outspoken chairman and president, Trump Association, called for a ban on Muslims entering the US. Mexicans. As Trump put it:

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They bring crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.

Trump would like to build a wall between Mexico and the US.

Women. The Donald’s “locker room” banter is well-known. He also once said:

You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.

Hillary Clinton. Trump doesn’t like his opponent in the presidential race. To him, she is “crooked Hillary” — and, at the third Presidential Debate, “a nasty woman”.

The American media. Trump has made many promises to change America’s libel laws. He wants to make it easier (for people like him) to sue for libel “and win money”.

We could go on, and on, and on, but if he wins one group of American citizens is sure to profit from Trump.

Yes, lawyers. Consider:

Trump as President, seeking to implement a ban on Muslims entering the US. Lots of work for human rights and immigration lawyers, for and against.

Trump as President, building a wall between Mexico and the US. Plenty for project finance and construction lawyers to get their teeth into.

Trump as President, ensuring that whatever happens, he has “a young, and beautiful, piece of ass”. Hang on — he’s happily married. This was just a blast from the locker room. Nothing doing.

Trump as President, suing Hillary Clinton for the tort of being Hillary Clinton. New legal ground here; plenty to ponder.

Trump as President, changing America’s libel laws. Here the keen golfer will need to tackle the US Constitution and get rid of the First Amendment. This is no small undertaking and will require a Jarndyce v. Jarndyce level of legal work.

We say: here’s to democracy.

Trump says: Have I told you the one about Bill Clinton’s wife?

American citizens say: You’ll have to wait a bit longer.

*Er, President.

Both results are awful. There should be a mechanism in their constitution to just rerun the election with 2 new candidates.

Mind you, Jesus wouldn’t want wars, extremes of wealth and poverty, guns or the death penalty either, but that hasn’t stopped you….

Well the worst has happened so what does that tell you about the world we now live. People need to stop making excuses and scooting around the fact that white people, mainly working class of a English and Anglo American extraction have had enough of their white privilege being stripped away by political correctness forced upon them so every other race can excel. This is the reality and the denial from liberal academics making excuses is patronising to say the least. The racism is institutional and inherent and silencing the bigots and great unwashed has now put the world back 50 years…

People are not happy, career politicians have become the norm and the politically elite have adopted a sense of ‘we know best’ as well as ‘do as I say, not as I do’.

I for one am excited about the changes ahead.

No lessons learnt from Brexit. People don’t like being told who to vote for by perceived elite and celebrities. This isn’t an endorsement of Trump, of course I have concerns. But, sooner or later, instead of saying, …everybody made a mistake, the voters are stupid, somebody needs to change that to ‘why are we so out of tune with ordinary voters. When this mind set occurs, half the battle will be won around addressing the disconnect.

I don’t think that’s it really, I think “the voters” just need a hard lesson in why the government (indeed any government) doesn’t bend to their every whim. And, they are going to get it.

There are problems with a “disconnect” in the UK, as in the USA, but isolationism, hope and “control” won’t fix that. Look at the people doing the preaching: Donald Trump (bought steel for his buildings from China), James Dyson (all Dyson products manufactured outside the UK) – if they wanted change, and to support the “people”, then they’d change that.

No modern country can survive without manufacturing. It’s all very well thinking we can be smarter, but technology has a way of moving just as quickly as manufacturing jobs. All those high-tech manufacturing jobs that went to China haven’t created high-tech “design” and “programming” jobs in the UK and USA, they’ve just created Chinese companies that have the manufacturing skills and capital to make the high-tech “stuff” we want, for less money. So the jobs created here are just the menial ones of selling, servicing and delivering that stuff.
