I‘ve been interviewed 5 or 6 times here in Sweden over the last 24 hours about Trump, which has given me time to think over what all of this means. My only firm conclusion is that regardless of who wins on November 8, the US has lost. And this is probably the clearest case of a national self-inflicted wound one could ever find. No-one is blameless. The Republicans sold their soul to the devil, then sat by and gave their pathetic blessing to a half-wit spouting bile. Whatever regrets that came were far too little, far too late.
