Years after he was assassinated, you kept denying housing to people based on the color of their skin

MLK: "If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark & shameful corridors of time"

We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation. We must move past indecision to action. We must find new ways to speak for peace in Vietnam and justice throughout the developing world, a world that borders on our doors. If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.

Your fathers and grandfathers risked nuclear war for 65 years to avert this day

In brief remarks on Monday, Merkel said of Trump’s comments on Nato and the European Union: “We Europeans have our fate in our own hands.” Speaking during a press conference with New Zealand’s prime minister, Bill English, she said: “He has presented his positions once more. They have been known for a while. My positions are also known.”

Editorial in the state-run news outlet Global Times of China literally mocking U.S. President-elect



“Trump’s thinking about China is becoming increasingly clear: He wants China to make huge economic and trade concessions to the U.S. To achieve that, he is willing to stir certain calm areas in China-U.S. relations, including treating the Taiwan issues as his trump card,” the editorial outlined, according to CNN’s John Berman. “We were simply angry initially, but now we can’t help but laugh at this U.S. leader-in-waiting. Maybe American voters ‘promoted’ him too quickly, his amateur remarks and over-confident manner are equally shocking.”“Trump’s thinking about China is becoming increasingly clear: He wants China to make huge economic and trade concessions to the U.S. To achieve that, he is willing to stir certain calm areas in China-U.S. relations, including treating the Taiwan issues as his trump card,” the editorial outlined, according to CNN’s John Berman. “We were simply angry initially, but now we can’t help but laugh at this U.S. leader-in-waiting.

Lessons from Playing Golf with Trump (very insightful)

LESSONS FROM PLAYING GOLF WITH TRUMP

After lunch, Trump and I played eighteen holes, accompanied by a bodyguard and John Nieporte, the club’s head professional. A friend asked me later whether Trump wasn’t “in on the joke” of his public persona, and I said that, as far as I could tell, the Trump we were used to seeing on television was the honest-to-god authentic Trump: a ten-year-old boy who, for unknown reasons, had been given a real airplane and a billion dollars. In other words, a fun guy to hang around with. As Tiger Woods observed recently, after also playing golf with him, Trump hits the ball a long way for a seventy-year-old. (He certainly outdrove me.) He’s also a good ball-striker and a terrific putter, despite employing a putting technique that, Nieporte told me, is so idiosyncratic that he wouldn’t dare either to change it or to teach it to anyone else. At the end of the round, Trump and I posed together for a photograph in front of the signature design feature of several of his courses: an enormous man-made waterfall, the outdoor equivalent of the huge fake-gold chandeliers and “French” furniture that he also has a weakness for.

Golf publications periodically rate golf courses—the hundred best in the world, the hundred best in the country, the dozen best in each state—and Trump’s relationship with such ratings is complex. He complained to me that golf publications never rank his courses high enough, because the people who do the rating hold a grudge against him, but he also said that he never allows raters to play his courses, because they would just get in the way of the members.
