On the same day as Trump appeared to back down on his demand for funding from Congress, Mexican foreign minister Luis Videgaray called the idea ofbuilding a border wall“unfriendly, “a hostile act” and “unlikely to fulfill the objectives” of stopping the flow of migrants and illegal merchandise into the United States.

[OP-ED]: La madre de todos los ‘blufs’

Afortunadamente, no es solo el pánico lo que se expande, también lo hace la resistencia, que cada día crece y se fortalece. Y eso es muy bueno.

Sí, eso es lo que retórica recalentada de Washington sobre Corea del Norte –a la que el país asiático responde en tonos igualmente belicosos – es en realidad: una sucia guerra de palabras. Pero puede estar seguro de que no están a punto de intercambiarse balas, cohetes, la madre de todas las bombas y mucho menos armas atómicas. Lo cual, por supuesto, es muy bueno.

Yes, that’s what the heated rhetoric coming from Washington about North Korea –and being responded to in no less bellicose tones by the Asian country – is: a nasty war of words. Rest assured that no bullets, no rockets, no mother of all bombs, not to mention atomic weapons are about to be fired, dropped or exchanged. Which, of course, is great.

[OP-ED]: How to avoid Trump Derangement Syndrome

 04/18/2017 - 10:41
Many of Trump’s campaign promises and policies are idiotic and unworkable. It was always likely that he would reverse them, as he has begun to do this week on several fronts. EFE

I didn’t really believe that there was such a thing as Trump Derangement Syndrome -- hatred of Donald Trump so intense that it impairs people’s judgment.
