Bonjour!

I think you will enjoy viewing the map of Donald Trump’s world. Click on the link below for an enlarged version.
– 
Below the map are three articles that put Trump’s remarks into perspective and/or refute his claims which pander to the fringe right and are designed to scare and fill with doubt the minds of those who have not done any fact checking on Trump’s claims..  
– 
Note: Back in 1987 I was a fan of Donald Trump after reading his book The Art of a Deal.  Back then Donald Trump was to be admired and had character and values.
– 
His first wife Ivana Trump filed for divorce after confronting an affair he was having and sought a greater amount of the family fortune than had been set out in their prenuptial agreement.
– 
Ivana had taken on a major role in the Trump Organization becoming president in those years prior to divorce.  Donald praised Ivana her leadership and not taking a salary for the management of his hotels and casinos in Art of a Deal).  
– 
However, Donald fought back in court, protesting Ivana’s claims that she had contributed to the Trump Organization  What gall after it was documented already in his book.
– 
During his relentless mindless bigoted “Birther” rants about President Obama; I definitely have no respect for him. He borders on being a lunatic clown.

Breaking news as I write this post
Conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch called out Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Twitter Sunday, saying the real estate mogul is wrong to say Mexican immigrants – or any immigrants – commit more crime than legal residents.

Economic Background

Paul Krugman

Macroeconomics, trade, health care, social policy and politics.

Paul Krugman joined The New York Times in 1999 as an Op-Ed columnist and continues as a professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University. Mr. Krugman received his B.A. from Yale University in 1974 and his Ph.D. from M.I.T. in 1977. He has taught at Yale, M.I.T. and Stanford. At M.I.T. he became the Ford International Professor of Economics.

Mr. Krugman is the author or editor of 27 books and more than 200 papers in professional journals and edited volumes. His professional reputation rests largely on work in international trade and finance; he is one of the founders of the “new trade theory,” a major rethinking of the theory of international trade. In recognition of that work, in 1991 the American Economic Association awarded him its John Bates Clark medal. Mr. Krugman’s current academic research is focused on economic and currency crises.

At the same time, Mr. Krugman has written extensively for a broader public audience. Some of his articles on economic issues, originally published in Foreign Affairs, Harvard Business Review, Scientific American and other journals, are reprinted in Pop Internationalism and The Accidental Theorist.

In 2008, Mr. Krugman received the Nobel Prize in Economics.

Enjoy your Monday!
