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.
Despite a series of divisive hearings during which Democrats attacked him for his record on civil rights, the US Senate finally confirmed Alabama senator Jeff Sessions as attorney general. .
The Alabama senator's nomination was among Mr Trump's most controversial. He has been dogged by racism claims and called a "southern racist caricature painful".

Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates from The Altanic reflects on the accomplishments of America’s first black president, who has been guided by a firm belief in American justice—and what Donald Trump’s election means for Obama’s legacy.
Nazi salutes, swastikas painted in parks? No, no. People don’t like that, Mr. Trump.

"I know that not all of you are hateful. I know that not every registered Republican is hateful. I know that not every conservative thinker is hateful. I know that not every White person is hateful. However, those of you who supported Trump all became enablers of hate."
"Jamás he conocido a nadie tan dispuesto a celebrar una broma como el rey. Parecía vivir tan sólo para las bromas. La manera más segura de ganar sus favores consistía en narrarle un cuento donde abundaran las chuscadas, y narrárselo bien. Ocurría así que sus siete ministros descollaban por su excelencia como bromistas. Todos ellos se parecían al rey por ser corpulentos, robustos y sudorosos, así como bromistas inimitables.

Thus it happened that his seven ministers were all noted for their accomplishments as jokers. They all took after the king, too, in being large, corpulent, oily men, as well as inimitable jokers.
