I have to hand it to Donald Trump. He has proven to me that he is a genius, a criminal genius. An ordinary crook or mob boss would only kidnap an individual or two in order to extort a hefty ransom.
Mr. Trump, however, has figured out how to kidnap an entire nation by demanding as ransom $25 billion for his border wall before he will allow the children of asylum seekers to be reunited with their parents.
He has taken to new heights the threat of the ordinary kidnapper by in effect saying to America “hand over the dough, or the little kid gets it.”
