<nettime> FW: For those who wanted to "give Trump a chance"


To be clear, I did not produce the very useful list that I forwarded
yesterday (received without attribution via FB).

A colleague has now tracked down the origin which is http://leftunity.org/the-daily-trump/ (It seems that they are keeping this mostly up to date...

Usefully my colleague also provided a link to a fact check of the
original list
http://americannewsx.com/hot-off-the-press/fact-checking-we-are-4-days-in-pay-attention/

For those not following too closely in the last several days since the
original list came out Mr. Trump added to his list of “achievements”

• A phone call with the President of Mexico that included a threat of
invasion

• A phone call with the Prime Minister of Australia that ended with Mr.
Trump angrily hanging up

• A tweet from Mr. Trump apparently threatening war with Iran

(and for good measure Mr. Trump’s Rasputin—Steve Bannon--was widely
quoted as having indicated that war with China over the disputed islands
in the South China Sea was inevitable.
