Letters to the Editor

Less than five hours after he was inaugurated, US President Donald Trump was ridiculed on Irish national television during the 'The Late Late Show'. Coverage of Mr Trump's first days in office has been entirely negative, both in his own country and throughout the world.

Very well organised demonstrations have enticed millions onto the streets to de-legitimise this democratically elected president across the globe. These demonstrations appear to be organised by a well-heeled celebrity liberal establishment apoplectic with rage that their preferred candidate was not elected.

Those who stoke dissent and trouble in the world's greatest superpower, which is already greatly divided, play a very dangerous game.
