Donald Trump’s demand that all Muslims be banned from America has worked.
It sparked exactly the kind of furore he hoped it would, and we’re all once again talking about little else but Donald Trump.
This was no casual aside or slip of the tongue.
It was a deliberate, carefully planned delivery of highly toxic, inflammable rhetoric designed to get the whole country up in arms.
And new poll numbers indicate Trump’s popularity has gone UP not down in the last 36 hours.
Love him or loathe him, and I personally love him but loathe this latest stunt (and have emailed him to say this) Trump knows how to dominate the news cycle like no presidential candidate in history.
