Daily Mail readers, or potential Daily Mail readers in this instance, in my experience.

That story made me smile. Some people just have no sense of humour.

The same people who believed Obama and Clinton when they maintained that manufacturing and technology could never succeed in the West and was lost to China.

One year into the Trump presidency, Apple are now repatriating $38 billion of cash and investing $250 billion over the next 7 years on developing a US based manufacturing platform and plant, as a result of tax and business incentives.

Not being discussed much in the media strangely. Anyway, back to naughty words, ethnic minority shortlists and transexual rights...

That is an absolutely shocking indictment of how the world works. Thanks for explaining it, but shame for thinking it laudable. They weren't content with $billions, but now they're bringing money home, still not paying tax in a country with pitiful infrastructure and gross inequality. Garroting would be too civilised.

And what about W Bush?

Maybe it is shocking. Globalisation and the liberalisation of the world's markets means that it happens. Depends how you look to solve it - his deal means that the US will have infrastructure developed, education developed and high paying jobs to get tax income from. The Clinton deal was that this is globalisation, so get used to it.

Trump, to much mockery, said that he would use tax and business incentives to turn US investment inwards. He seems to have done exactly as he promised his voter base.

Is he a racist? Certainly uses non-pc language and lacks impulse control and that defines someone as racist in 2018. But 20 years ago, he was being given awards from the African American community for his positive hiring policies. It suits the Democrats that he is racist and that PoC are suffering under his rule, as it means that an increasing percentage of Americans are less likely to vote Republican. In fact, it really suits the Democrats that African Americans are kept impoverished as a community as it locks in their votes.. As soon as they become wealthier, they naturally want to pay less tax.

Either way, the US economy is looking stronger at the moment.

You think right wing Daily Mail readers are offended by non PC stuff? People who are permanently offended by these things aren't those on the right but humourless left leaning millenials and student types with their demands for safe spaces and a refusal to listen to anyone who has a different opinion. 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

Still no explanations as to why immigrants flock to this appalling country instead of the ones with wonderful infrastructure and great equality elsewhere.

A president isn't just one man [sic] - there's a whole conglomerate behind that man, driving an agenda to suit their interests, no matter what.

It would seem that the oil and defence industries were backing Bush and so pushed forward globalist policies. It would seem that social media/internet billionaires and the banking sector were backing Obama - again who favoured globalisation. Whoever is backing Trump is doing so because a more protectionist and favourable national economy suits their interests.

I only wondered why you missed him out.

So it's nothing to do with his backers wanting to keep even more of their ill gotten gains?

I'm afraid I don't know as I don't have your knowledge. I'll hazard a wild guess that many come from countries with more shit infrastructure and even worse inequality. Cheers.

Yes of course, but it's the same whomever the president.

But what do they want to do with all that money? Many seem simply to hoard it when it could do so much. It's just a poor way to look at life.

What are you basing this assumption on?

I only ask as I have not come across these people in my personal life and I work, rest and play with a variety of demographics.

It would appear the whole thing was made up by the author, or said author has gone out of the way to find someone who was looking to be offended.

If it’s the latter where do we stop with this nonsense?

Why would young people watch such a lot of crap anyway? They deserve to be offended. It really is someone without a story for the day.

It's modern day gossip that has become daily news. Media outlets hype it up to stay relevant. Without any racism, prejudice, rants against tories, insults etc. there isn't much to discuss and this doesn't pay well in advertising revenue or data collection revenue if viewers visit news and social media sites only once a day.

Again, it suits Labour that racism, poverty and prejudice 'exists' to be reported, as otherwise they lose their voter base.
