Belfast is deeply inspiring in that the city has rebuilt itself since the Good Friday Agreements were signed 19 years ago and the city is also a vivid remainder of the consequences of allowing hate and fear to take the place of understanding and hope as the primary mode of political discourse.
It appears that the Trump campaign team worked with Russian spies to win the American election and like Richard Nixon, 40 years ago, Trump should resign before he is impeached.
Donald Trump has has lied to the American people and imperiled the United States’ national security. Fortunately, the American system has a number of checks and balances in it and I am afraid that before this is over, the Congress and the Senate will have to impeach him.
