Trump’s support of Erdogan shows exactly what Trump is and how he would really wish to govern America.

Josep Goded

Trump’s connections with a large number of dictatorships has raised several questions about his morality and political convictions. Since he became president, numerous human rights organizations have protested against him for welcoming human rights violators onto US soil. However, Trump has always denied those accusations, claiming that classic tyrants such as Al-Sisi (Egypt) and Erdogan (Turkey) are US allies who lead free countries.

Despite Trump’s efforts to manipulate public opinion, the recent visit of the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan caused a political earthquake. During his visit to the Turkish embassy in Washington DC on Monday, Erdogan ordered his bodyguards to attack people who were peacefully protesting against him. As result, a number of protesters were injured and needed medical assistance. A few hours before that regrettable incident, Trump said:

We have had a great relationship and we will make it even better.”

Sheffield Council was ‘complicit’ in allowing sex attacker Roger Dodds to groom teenagers and young men, according to a damning report into his abuse.

Dodds, who was jailed in February after admitting a series of sex attacks on five people dating back to the 1980s, created an environment ‘within which he could exploit his position of authority to pursue his sexual satisfaction’.

His actions caused ‘enormous distress’ to his victims according to the findings of Operation Klosters, a review the council commissioned after police began investigating Dodds in 2008 – and released to The Star yesterday.

Dodds was a sex tourist, ‘well known’ for his use of sexual language at the education department building in Leopold Street, and was part of a club that shared hardcore pornography on the internal mail system.

Virgin Media and disability charity Scope are teaming up to highlight disability discrimination in football grounds. New research published today shows that disabled football fans feel excluded from live games. Eight in ten who attend football stadiums across the UK say they have experienced some form of discrimination or other issues resulting from their disability. As a result, the majority (62%) of these disabled fans said these experiences had stopped them from going to a live match again. To highlight the issue and to put disabled fans at the heart of the game, the Saints will wear a special Scope-branded shirt for their home match against Manchester United FC on Wednesday 17 May. Virgin Media, the official shirt sponsor of Southampton FC, is removing its logo from the club’s strip to support its charity partner, Scope, in order to get behind disabled football fans. It forms part of the company’s partnership with the charity to help transform the lives of disabled people. Virgin Media

On Monday, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke visited Bears Ears National Monument, where he showed surprising disrespect towards an indigenous woman, an organizer from the non-profit PANDOS, who was trying to ask him about his failure to meet with Native American leaders. (Video below.) It came across as patronizing and sexist, yet one more example of a federal official marginalizing American Indian voices. I have sent the following letter to Secretary Zinke in protest.
