No se da a querer. Ni siquiera es agradable. Lo que Donald Trump sí es, es el presidente de EE. UU. más impopular del que se tenga memoria, lo cual tiene muchísima lógica.

Lovable he is not. He is not even nice, for goodness’ sake. What Donald Trump is, is the most unpopular U.S. president in modern history, which coming to think of it, was to be expected.

[OP-ED]: Asesinado por reportar la verdad – ¿qué diría Trump?

Unanue, trump, truth

Increíblemente, sobre todo para los que fuimos sus amigos, han pasado 25 años desde el asesinato del periodista Manuel de Dios Unanue, en un restaurante español de la ciudad de Nueva York. El coraje de denunciar a los capos de la droga colombianos y su venenosa presencia en la que fue su ciudad, le costaron la vida.

Unanue, que había sido director de El Diario-La Prensa, el diario en español más antiguo del país, tenía 48 años cuando murió el 11 de marzo de 1992. Era el apogeo de los carteles de la droga colombianos y su influencia perniciosa se extendía a Nueva York, especialmente a Queens, donde Unanue vivía y moriría. Su muerte fue un lúgubre recordatorio de la fragilidad de la libertad de prensa, incluso en EE. UU.

[OP-ED]: Killed for reporting the truth – what would Trump say?

Unanue, trump, truth

Incredibly, especially for those of us who called him our friend, 25 years have passed since the murder of fearless journalist Manuel de Dios Unanue, at a Spanish restaurant in New York City. The courage to expose Colombian drug capos and their poisonous presence in his city, cost him his life.

Unanue, the former editor of El Diario-La Prensa, the oldest Spanish-language daily paper in the country, was 48 when he was killed on March 11, 1992. It was the heyday of the Colombian drug cartels, and their pernicious influence extended to New York, especially Queens, where he lived and died. Unanue's death was a grim reminder - and a reality check - of how fragile freedom of the press is, even in the U.S.

[OP-ED]: Women’s Forceful Message to Donald Trump

 03/07/2017 - 12:53

Nightmarish. That’s the best way to describe Donald Trump’s past few weeks in the White House. 

During those days he has seen his closest henchmen exposed as liars and cheaters –the most recent, his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, a man well known for his extremist racist ideology. 

Not surprisingly, they --Trump included-- deny any wrongdoing with a straight face while, as in some third-rate TV reality show, are doing the impossible to hide their suspicious dealings with the Russians and paint themselves as harmless patriots.

[OP-ED]: Un mensaje poderoso de las mujeres a Donald Trump

 03/07/2017 - 12:48

Una pesadilla. Esa es la mejor descripción de las semanas recientes de Donald Trump en la Casa Blanca. En esos días Trump ha presenciado el desenmascaramiento de sus colaboradores más cercanos como tramposos y embusteros, incluyendo a si fiscal general, Jeff Sessions, cuya ideología racista y antiinmigrante es de sobra conocida.
