Is Mr Trump likely to act on his threats and use his Twitter feed as a blueprint for policy? It is very doubtful that this is anything other than posturing. However, Mr Trump has clearly shown us one thing: he has a very different understanding of trade relations that any other American President in living memory.
As a former trade union member and a working-class Tory, I throw down a challenge to Labour to meet us. If you are a union member and official, get in touch, let's sit down over a pint and discuss how Labour has let you down and how Ukip's policies represent the working classes. I am easy to contact.
