The widespread disdain for Donald Trump and the fear of what his presidency might mean have led to an abandonment of any sense of objectivity by many Trump opponents and, most notably, the mainstream U.S. news media. If Trump is for something, it must be bad and must be transformed into one more club to use for hobbling his candidacy.

Amid his incoherence and insults, Trump has raised valid points on several important questions, such as the risks involved in the voracious expansion of NATO up to Russia’s borders and the wisdom of demonizing Russia and its internally popular President Vladimir Putin.

Ransomware has left almost 10 per cent of UK firms 'unable to operate'

MORE THAN HALF of UK businesses have been hit by ransomware, according to security outfit Malwarebytes, and almost 10 per cent were left "entirely unable to operate" as a result.

Malwarebytes surveyed 540 CIOs, CISOs and IT chiefs at organisations with an average headcount of 5,400 in the UK, US, Germany and Canada. Around 40 per cent have been affected by ransomware and a third lost revenue as a result.

Julian Assange: “1,700 emails” proves Hillary Clinton sold weapons to ISIS in Syria

Do you acknowledge that? Is that a positive step for the country?

TRUMP: She’s got bad judgment. Everything she’s touched has turned bad. Whether it’s Syria, or Libya, or the migration, or the beginning of the Iran deal. She’s got horrible judgment. She voted for the war in Iraq. Another mistake. She was in favor of NAFTA. Another mistake. She’s got bad judgment.

We’re going to have a woman president, but it shouldn’t be her. She would be catastrophic for our country.
