Best hope for multiculturalism? Tinder

Like me, you were probably depressed by the sight of the president of the United States leading a rally, at which an angry mob chanted ‘send her back!’ in reference to a Somali-born US congresswoman.

Even Trump’s mate Piers Morgan wrote that the rally ‘bordered on fascism’.

Yet Trump is overwhelmingly likely to get re-elected. AmeriKKKa is showing its ugly side.
