To put America first, Mr Trump must put the UN second. Channeling the far-sighted leadership of UN founding father Franklin D. Roosevelt is the best way to make America great again.
People in Russia are at the mercy of the state-controlled media. People in the West needn't be. If this is the new Cold War, then the West would do well to remember what had helped it to bring down the Berlin Wall and diffuse tensions at the end of the last century.
President Trump is probably sitting in the Oval Office seething. What went wrong? Leaving aside the technical details, such as the loss of medical insurance coverage for 25 million people - scaring the moderates, or in the other extreme, not cutting costs enough for the diehards, this legislative exercise, like all major decisions, is about behaviour.
The continual contribution and addition to London's culture, that living breathing creature that is constantly evolving, makes us who we are. The answer to the hatred and division we saw this week cannot possibly be more hate and division. Surely love and unity can be the only antidote. That, and a strong cup of tea.
When it comes to hair, these are troubling times. Gone are the days when the prize for blonde male political buffoonery went hands down to Boris Johns...
We found that around half of us (49%) reported experiencing anxiety specifically in relation to the US election and following inauguration of Donald Trump as president, with 29% going as far as saying they have experienced a 'fair amount' or 'great deal' of anxiety.
Masculinity is a foreign country: they do things differently there. With due apologies to L.P. Hartley for mangling his wonderful line, that elegantl...
One must never underestimate the role of the political economy and its influence on a business strategy. Government and regulation are the directors of the global economic theatre. The interconnectedness of which means that decisions in one part of the world have a rippling effect on the other.
There is widespread recognition that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) delivered by President Obama, the Federal Government and Congress created a solution for every American to have health care.
Communicating and connecting, cross-culturally and across borders and boundaries, is what keeps us human and moving forward. Division, hate, disrespect due to differences, tears us apart and moves us back, into darker times, taking us down the rabbit hole which ends we know not where. In the end, this kind of negative trajectory affects everyone negatively; even Presidents .
President Trump's emerging leadership bears two hallmarks - governance by tweet and the politics of the deal. At their historic talks in Washington on Friday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears to have won over Trump by tapping into his love of the deal.
British, European and American politicians will have to manage groups who see the world in very different ways, protect their jobs and enable them to live their lives in a rapidly changing, digital economy where success means less barriers to travel and trade. Trump and Brexit won their elections on the back of declarations to protect those who see their future within a less open state, that they can recreate the world before globalisation and that international free trade has damaged their lives. It's a gamble which is unlikely pay off.
Both Theresa May and Donald Trump have been encouraging me to think of Aesop a lot recently. Not because their wisdom and narrative skills mirror that of the slave and storyteller of ancient Greece, but because of one fable attributed to him.
The rhetoric he uses - including the cynical appropriation of terms such as 'voice' - is encouraging a climate of division and stigmatisation rather than inclusiveness. It's pitting one marginalised group against another. He's expressing a false empathy with the 'forgotten men and women' he claims to be speaking for. And by appropriating the term voice for himself, he is attempting to silence the legitimate concerns of countless others.
So we should fasten our life jackets, refuse to panic, and do everything we can to keep the ship afloat as we ride out the storm. Eventually, the seas will calm, and the winds will abate. Let's meet again on dry land.
When in office, Osborne brought us austerity and pushed Machiavelli's envelope so far that even the Italian prince would not have wanted any part in it. He then left us with a broken nation after playing co-conspirator with PM Cameron, massively over-egging the scaremongering and losing the EU referendum. Thanks George... At the very least, Osborne should resign as an MP immediately. What would be better is if public servants - especially those that claim to be ace strategists and in whom the privileges of high office have been invested - exercised more restraint while still holding office.
