4. Yes, he has. Remember the NY Times reporter he also mocked publicly.

I have never seen a politician stoop that low, do anything nearly that vicious, and his supporters whooped it up.

6. There is a rising nationalist movement in Mexico responding to Trump's public contempt

and they are now negotiating independent trade deals with the fastest growing regional economies; Brazil and Argentina.

I am afraid that, despite his reputation, our Deal making Artist of a President is not a very good negotiator.

10. At one level, it doesn't matter the country....

It was a journalist who was murdered. At that same level, it doesn't matter the newspaper, it was a newspaper that closed because of the murder of journists.
It is heartbreaking and cause for activism
