I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

 He intentado evaluar la presidencia de Donald Trump con justicia. Lo he elogiado cuando eligió a personas competentes para cargos altos y expresé mi apoyo por sus políticas cuando parecían serias y sensatas (a pesar de que esto ha suscitado críticas de algunos sectores). Sin embargo, siempre ha existido otro aspecto en esta presidencia que ha estado asechando bajo la superficie y algunas veces ha salido a la vista, como sucedió esta semana. Donald Trump, en la mayor parte de su retórica y varias de sus medidas supone un peligro para la democracia estadounidense.

Gay men are often targeted by robbers, with gangs even specializing in this type of crime. The modus operandi is for the criminal to seduce the person either in person or via Internet and then, once inside the victim's home, to steal his belongings and kill him.
