On 20th January 2017, the President Elect, businessman and reality TV star Donald J Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. An election plagued by lies, innuendo and accusations of foreign interference has seen the elevation to the supreme political office of the free world a man bereft of morality, intellect and integrity.

We love America. We love it`s people, we love it`s music and above all we love it`s pluralism. The modern American nation was born from a rebellion against tyranny and built by ordinary people, immigrants all, into the great nation it has become. America possesses an unique quality unknown by most other nations of the world and that is the simple premise that anyone can become an American, regardless of ethnicity or origin. Like Rome before it, America is more than a nation - it`s an idea. Yet, from it`s inception, the high ideals enshrined in the Constitution have been successively betrayed and corrupted by the nation`s leaders.

Every Presidency ends in failure - every President ends his term of office compromised by the needs and demands of political factions and big business. From the broken promises to Native Americans and the ruthless oppression of African Americans to a rapacious capitalism that has seen too many Americans plunged into desperate poverty, the American Dream has been shattered. The wasteland that is now Detroit stands as mute testament to the failure of American government and American capitalism.

Donald J Trump is the new President. A man who makes George W. Bush look statesmanlike, he now leads the greatest nation in the world. An irrational, impulsive and often incoherent populist, he transmits his thoughts to the world in bites of 140 characters or less - the leader of the free world accessible on his Twitter feed "Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump". Trump will fail, of course, and his grandiose ambitions will come to nothing but hollow, broken promises to the American people.

America deserves a better President.... but then, America has always deserved a better President.

Respectfully yours,
