He may end up being the ultimate example of "you get what you wish for".
Although for the sake of America's continued decent relationship with the countries which haven't totally given up on it yet, I hope he doesn't.
I'm a Brit living outside my home country, and I meet quite a few Americans who are likewise living outside theirs. Nearly all of them are university educated (as it's a requirement for a visa to live here), articulate and generally represent their country well. Not a single one of them has a single positive thing to say about Trump.
Yet he's made it this far, which tells us something quite interesting, and more than a little disturbing, about the mindset of a significant number of Americans and how he is able to exploit that.
I sometimes wonder if the whole Trump candidacy isn't a huge, well-orchestrated trolling of the USA, but it would appear not to be.
Reynaldo : I'll be the first to admit that I'm not an expert on US politics. My point is that (and again I'm sure you will correct me if I'm wrong) that there probably weren't many people who seriously thought he would get this far. In 2002 in France, Jean-Marie Le Pen (who you could probably get away with comparing to Trump in respect of the way he ran his campaigns) made it into the second round of the general election, which shook France to the core. He consequently got utterly wiped out by Chirac, but the fact that he got that far at all was considered something of a scandal. This situation with Trump strikes me as not dissimilar.
