Open Letter to Donald Trump from Ireland’s Emigration Museum

Submitted by Mervyn Greene, Managing Director, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum

Thursday, 30th May

County Clare, Ireland

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OPEN LETTER INVITES TRUMP TO CHANGE HIS VIEWS ON IMMIGRATION.

Ireland’s Emigration Museum offers the US President the opportunity to see immigration from a different angle.

President Donald Trump’s stance on immigration is well documented and debated, so when EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum heard about the POTUS visiting Irish shores, they felt a responsibility to extend an invitation. Through a full page open letter, they asked him to visit and reframe his views on immigration.

Over 10 million people emigrated from Ireland over the centuries – in many cases escaping famine, political unrest and civil war, others seeking opportunity and change. They settled all over the world as immigrants, and EPIC documents the stories of the impact they’ve had.

“EPIC represents an alternative voice on the global movement of people.  We have documented the positive impact that Irish emigration has had on the world, and we think it’s time the conversation on emigration changed.  This invitation goes out to President Trump with sincerity – come experience a different viewpoint on immigration and it might just change your perspective” says Mervyn Greene, Managing and Museum Director of EPIC.

The letter asks the President to consider his family’s own emigration story from Germany, and points out a number of examples of how Ireland’s emigrant stories have impacted his own life.

An excerpt from the letter:

“Allow us to share a few of our stories that might hit close to home for you. Irish emigrants played a huge part in shaping the Manhattan skyline. Descendants of Irish emigrants have held your very position in the Oval Office. The White House itself was designed by James Hoban, an Irish architect. Your Vice President Mike Pence is the grandson of an Irish emigrant who escaped war and poverty in 1923. You might even come across descendants of his great-grandmother, who hailed from Doonbeg.“

EPIC’s open letter was placed in the Clare Champion Newspaper, the biggest newspaper in County Clare, where President Trump will be staying at his family-owned golf club in Doonbeg during his visit to Ireland.  As a final enticement to the President, the letter suggests his visit would take less time than a round of golf.

 

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is a state-of-the-art interactive experience located in the beautiful vaults of the 1820 Custom House Quarter building in Dublin’s Docklands, the original departure point for so many of Ireland’s emigrants. Featuring personal stories of love, triumph, adventure and adversity, it highlights and celebrates the positive impact and influence of Irish emigrants around the world.  https://epicchq.com/


AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

Dear President Trump,

We’d like to extend an invitation to visit EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum during your upcoming visit.

We know your itinerary isn’t as flexible as most, but hear us out.

Your stance on immigration is well documented. As one of the world’s only museums dedicated to the emigrant experience, we’d like to offer a different point of view. At EPIC, the positive impact emigrants have had on the world is told through an Irish lens; it’s a narrative we’re proud to share with countless other countries.

Allow us to share a few of our stories that might hit close to home for you. Irish emigrants played a huge part in shaping the Manhattan skyline. Descendants of Irish emigrants have held your very position in the Oval Office. The White House itself was designed by James Hoban, an Irish architect. Your Vice President Mike Pence is the grandson of an Irish emigrant who escaped war and poverty in 1923. You might even come across descendants of his great- grandmother, who hailed from Doonbeg.

Your own family story has been shaped by emigration, when your grandfather Friedrich left Germany at age 16 to pursue opportunity in a new land. And the First Lady is another example of how a recent immigrant has made the most of a new opportunity to one day become FLOTUS. Needless to say, our invitation is open to Melania as well.

What we’re saying is that everyone has a connection to the story of emigration, and people often change their perspective once they see it told from many angles, both past and present.

We know you’ll have a busy presidential itinerary, but we promise you an enlightening experience in less time than it takes to play a round of golf.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mervyn Greene,

Managing Director,

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum

    What is it called when other people have to pay Muslims money? Jizya/tax

    Yes, it was Jizya/tax on non-Muslim was compulsory in all schools of law of Islamic jurisprudence.

  • Trump is not against immigration. What Trump wants to do, is to relook the immigration process. He proposes to replace the present model by one based on merit. Any advanced country in this day and age, would be stupid if it didn’t do so. Canada has a merit based system and a host of other countries also have it. In the future, robotics are going to replace much of the unskilled labor used in agriculture and other industries. The type of migrants required to spur development would be those who are trained in the sciences and linguistics and who have advanced degrees. This new century is a new ball game. A country has to adapt ;if it doesn’t it is going to lag behind the development curve. It is strictly a case of evolution in action. What was good in the past is not relevant in this new age. Given a choice between settling a person with advanced degrees in the sciences and allowing an immigrant to sponsor all of his relatives no matter how distant the connection, a sensible country opts for the trained one instead.
    As for the Irish prime minister hollering and keeping a lot of noise, Ireland is now faced with the problem of what to do with. the Muslims who fought with Isis. A country would be lacking in foresight to allow in migrants whose mores are diametrically opposite to its own. Look at the problems Muslims cause when they are a minority in a country (a fifth column if ever there was one).Any responsible leader would have to be crazy to allow more Muslims into their country. A leader has to look one or two-hundred years down the road and examine the impact of Muslim immigration and the potential for civil wars.
    The list of Muslim countries scheduled for the imposition of restrictions on migration to the USA was drawn up by Obama: Trump enacted what Obama had selected and is called a racist. Obama allowed into the USA more Muslims than Christians and no one was hollering. Just like the Pope who went to Greece and selected four families for refugee status and resettlement: all were Muslim. When asked where the Christians where he claimed that there wasn’t enough time and that UNHCR had prepared the slate of migrants.Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the Jordanian prince who was the head of the UNHCR at the time was hollering about Europe discriminatory actions towards the Muslim migrants. He forgot to mention that the rich Muslim Arab countries wouldn’t take them. The Muslim countries (UAE and Saudi Arabia have not signed the UN refugee treaty).Freedom Crier is correct, the UN or for that matter other countries do not have the right to say what a country should do regarding migration. If there were mass migration to China or North Korea ( just citing the latter as an extreme example), the boats would be sunk and that would be the end of that. One would hear some outcry and China wouldn’t be bothered one hoot. The day is coming when the UN refugee treaty is going to torn up. It was drawn up immediately after the second world war. It was meant for refugees whose mores were alike and is not relevant to today.

  • I look at this problem a different way and the impact on the black community
    What i do observe is that the the impact on the black community results from a negative outflow of economic problems bearing down on jobs which are given to these mostly white or half brown immigrants regardless if whether they have the skills and even more frightening cannot speak the english language
    The blacks in america are once again being pushed into the back of the economic bus while emigrants of ethic races become the drivers
    I might not agree with the way Trump is handling the immigration problems
    However it bodes well enough to say that an underlying tow of mass immigration does not bodes well for the American black
    The level playing field is being eroded when black chances of losing jobs is given first preference to immigrants of different ethic groups

  • State Department now requires U.S. visa applicants to share social media accounts

    June 1, 2019 / 2:22 PM / AP

    The State Department is now requiring nearly all applicants for U.S. visas to submit their social media usernames, previous email addresses and phone numbers. It’s a vast expansion of the Trump administration’s enhanced screening of potential immigrants and visitors.

    In a move that’s just taken effect after approval of the revised application forms, the department says it has updated its immigrant and nonimmigrant visa forms to request the additional information, including “social media identifiers,” from almost all U.S. applicants.

    The change, which was proposed in March 2018, is expected to affect about 15 million foreigners who apply for visas to enter the United States each year.
    Trending News

    Social media, email and phone number histories had only been sought in the past from applicants who were identified for extra scrutiny, such as people who’d traveled to areas controlled by terrorist organizations. An estimated 65,000 applicants per year had fallen into that category.

    The department says collecting the additional information from more applicants “will strengthen our process for vetting these applicants and confirming their identity.”

    The new rules apply to virtually all applicants for immigrant and nonimmigrant visas. The department estimated it would affect 710,000 immigrant visa applicants and 14 million nonimmigrant visa applicants, including those who want to come to the U.S. for business or education, according to an initial notice.

    The new visa application forms list a number of social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and require the applicant to provide any account names they may have had on them over the previous five years. They also give applicants the option to volunteer information about social media accounts on platforms not listed on the form.

    In addition to their social media histories, visa applicants are now asked for five years of previously used telephone numbers, email addresses, international travel and deportation status, as well as whether any family members have been involved in terrorist activities.

    Only applicants for certain diplomatic and official visa types are exempted from the requirements.

    Where did you get that “shithole Country …?”There was no proof that the man said that. There is now some headline stating the Trump called the Duchess of Sussex nasty. Read the article and it is obvious that the man never called her nasty. Some asylum seekers from Muslim countries are very highly trained; albeit those from Somalia leave much to be desired. As regard the undocumented Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program., Obama used his executive powers to give them entitlement. There was some noise then, but no one challenged Obama in the courts to the extent that Trump is being challenged over the matter. As Trump said, he is not for deporting the highly skilled ones. Obama executive order can be undone by an executive order by trump; however every one is questioning his authority to do so.

    @ Mariposa:
    In the early parts of the last century, the Jews in America were treated similar to the Blacks(albeit the Jews had money). The Jews realized the importance initially of sports to circumvent their pariah status. They also realized the importance of education. In the late eighties and early nineties there was a move on among black Americans to stop speaking English and use something called (negbonics or ebonics I am not too sure of the spelling) a mode of communication only spoken by them and understood by them. How a minority in an English speaking society could come up with the idea speaks volume on its ability to reason analytically. There was no need to reinvent the wheel. Mimic the Jews was all that was required. Too many Blacks seem more interested in Black on Black violence than on over all advancement of their cause. There was an example a couple of years back of a South Sudanese immigrant: he couldn’t speak English well. He got a job as a packer in a supermarket and worked long hours; went to school got his GED enrolled in a community college got his diploma and started to do well. He was living in a Black neighborhood. He was subjected to derision for his educational achievements and his house was subjected to vandalism leaving him nonplus at the treatment meted out to him a Black by other Blacks. He couldn’t fathom it. Blacks in America should look forward ( I am not saying forget the past; the Jews do not do that, even though they are always hollering about their genocide, conveniently forgetting the numerous genocides perpetrated by themselves in the Old Testament): the going is going to be tough but press ahead in the fields of education especially the sciences where Blacks tend to avoid because of the greater analytical powers needed and the dearth of financial returns obtained.

  • FROM SERVITUDE AND OPPRESSION TO FREEDOM…

    In the late 1800’s the Ottoman Empire, controlled the Region, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, were not separate as they are now. Our fore fathers land and valuables were stolen and they were made Serfs because they were Christians.

    When the Ottoman Empire started to break down, many fled to The Americas in hopes of Freedom and a better way of life. My Father and my husband’s family were the latter generation who were left of this migration, which started back then. They worked very hard and overcame many barriers while adapting to their new environment, often in rural and inhabited territories. They were NEVER GIVEN A FREE PASS OR ENTITLEMENTS as we are seeing under the Past Administration and what Democrats presently are hoping for. So they must be an ulterior motive don’t you think?

    Christians were greatly persecuted as they are now from what we are witnessing in the Middle East! Except they are not the ones flooding Europe and the West, they remain at the mercy of Tyranny. They were not welcomed in the US by the Past Administration, ever wonder why?

    Think about How the Muslim Brotherhood had Infiltrated the White House????

    It Needs to be Understood that… After the Democrats in the Early 60’s-70’s when they started to Pander to Minorities they Realized they could get Wholesale Voting Blocs by Offering Freshness through certain Social Programs. By giving these Entitlements, they buy Allegiance just as they did with people of colour.

    As Pertaining to Illegal Immigration…The Democrats Strategy Now is that by Allowing Illegal Immigration; with their Open Borders Policies Under the ‘Pretence that they Care’ while in REALITY their Intent is to Buy the Loyalty of those Entering into the US by Securing Votes from their In- debtors! It Takes Two Hands to Clap. If we have not Awoken to this Skulduggery, it is Unlikely we ever will!!!

    I couldn’t be More Passionate about the things I believe to be true because the Spirit of Tyranny Oppressed Both Sides of my Ancestry. One side Fleeing an Oppressive Regime leaving the Middle East, while on the other side of my Ancestors Travelled on Bondage Ships bound for Barbados.

    I speak of the Difference between Freedom and Tyranny because I Understand and Know the Difference. I have Awakened to the Understanding of Liberty and Freedom Versus Tyranny & Oppression.

    The rule of law? There is little difference between so-called democratic countries and undemocratic countries. In the latter one knows what to expect.: in the former a semblance of law exists which favor the rich and powerful. In any event, the constituent has given the president all of the power and the courts are over stepping their mandate. There is the Reith on the BBC ( at present): a past member of the UK ‘s supreme court is worried by the over reach of the judiciary into matters that are the domain of politicians and he sees this over reach as threatening democracy. This precisely what is wrong in this case. The constitution of America is quite clear that the president hold sway on immigration not the courts. No one voted for the judiciary, yet the judiciary acts as if it is so.

    @Mr Blogmaster, the blogger @Lawson makes a point… painfully non PC though it may be. Immigration – forced or freely extended – by its nature will ALWAYS dramatically change the texture and culture of the hosting nation and when the differences between the immigrants and citizens are as stark as skin colour or diametrically different religious beliefs its always quite facile for agitators to focus on some aspect of those differences and incite hatred and resentment ….so yes the low cost labour at point A can become a major headache around point T!

    Trump has bluntly stated what type of immigrant he wants so all the fancy footwork about highly skilled folks is window shade to block a clear view of that intent!

    @Theo, on point above. Shocking twist and turns…absolutely shocking!

    @Dr. Lucas, you have emphatically stated your credentials on this blog as a scientist ….so having credentialed yourself as a man who lives professionally by the rigueur of hard data leading to decisions I find your political discourse to be shockingly hypocritical!

    Which one is it doc…should we expect your decisions to be based on factual, accurate portrayals of data or are you a gun-for-hire style professional who manipulates his data to dissemble the results you desire?

    It’s RIDICULOUS to present on one hand reasoned positions of immigration but mix that in with bluntly FALSE or HALF TRUE assertions …. which scientist do YOU know who has maintained his reputation with that approach!

    It is VALID to assert that US immigration policy needs a purposeful revamp and that some hard decisions need to be made.

    It is FALSE to assert that the hot-air rhetoric from Trump re merit based policies or “hold it a bit ,lets stop immigration from Muslim countries until we figure out what the hell is going on?” is some awesome “common sense factual statement”.

    Since several years now and certainly after more updating and changes under the past admin it takes at LEAST 18 months to two years for any immigrant out of a Muslim country to get a resident visa approval…and with those seeking refugee status the riguer is more complex.

    You MUST know this as a man focused on properly researching your subjects of interest so one can ONLY presume you are a gun-for-hire style fellow.

    It is ABSOLUTELY FALSE to assert that Trump may not have made the ‘shitho–‘ comment. Whether he used that specific phrase ending in hole is irrelevant because he never denied (nor any participants) using similar disparaging cuss words.

    What’s the point of that BS walkback… that’s the man and how he talks and has acted throughout his life.

    And you label a man like Mueller partisan. Freaking amazing!

    However, I agree with you : Trump may (can) win in 2020.

    FACTS INDICATE THAT MUELLER EITHER DESTROYED EVIDENCE OR HID IT
    Steven Ahle JUNE 2, 2019

    New evidence clearly shows that special counsel Robert Mueller violated the Brady Act. The Brady Act requires prosecutors to turn over all exculpatory evidence to the defense. He did not do that in the case of Michael Flynn.

    The judge in Flynn’s case ordered Mueller to turn over the FBI’s 302s from their interview with Flynn. Mueller turned over 302 written months after the interview. We now know that FBI Agent Joe Pientka did write a 302 on the Flynn interview because it’s mentioned in the Strzok/Page texts. Agent Pientka tried to testify for Flynn but Rod Rosenstein refused to let him.

    Pientka said at the time that he believed Flynn was telling the truth.

    From the minute Judge Emmet G. Sullivan received the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, which will be decided on Tuesday, he ordered Mueller to provide the defense with all Brady material. Last week, Judge Sullivan specifically ordered Mueller to produce any FBI interview reports — called 302s — or memoranda relevant to the original interview of Gen. Flynn. Ironically, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley has been requesting the agents’ notes and 302s for two years. Did Mueller comply?

    Remarkably, but not surprisingly to those who have read my book, Mueller has thumbed his nose at Judge Sullivan’s order. He produced only a 302 created by his own squad seven months later from his own agent’s interview of none other than the infamous, fired-for-bias, disgraced, Trump-loathing, former Agent Peter Strzok — the guy who swore he’d “stop” President Trump and devised “an insurance policy” with his mistress Lisa Page and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in case Trump won the election. We are watching Mueller execute that insurance policy by the day.

    The evidence indicates Mueller has destroyed or is suppressing Brady material. There was an original 302 created within five days — by FBI protocol — of the Jan. 24, 2016 ambush interview of General Flynn by two agents — Strzok and Special Agent Joe Pientka. It is mentioned in the Strzok-Page text messages and on page four of the recrafted 302 Mueller filed. Comey read the original 302 before he was fired.

    Mueller has some very shady stuff in his past, Uranium 1 happening to be one of the highlights. At the time he was the Director of the FBI and they were investigating MULTIPLE crimes by the Russians to get control of the US Uranium industry.

    IF he had raised a single flag about these Russian crimes, Hillary’s Uranium 1 deal would have been immediately sunk and he knew it… Soooo, why did he keep it under wraps? My guess is he’s afraid someone will find out if Trump stays in office…

    Now, to add the cherry on top of Mueller’s less than ethical past, he has 2 years of running an investigation that was nothing more than a shady, political coup against a US President…

    IF Barr starts investigating Mueller & his team, the answers he will find, when added together, will likely lead to criminal charges…

    Oh yah, Mueller is very scared and he should be…

    And, that’s why he sounded like he was ready to break down and cry at his press conference as he practically begged Congress to impeach Trump…

    Even if they do impeach Trump, it will never pass the trial in the Senate, so there’s nothing to worry about, BUT, that’s not the point of the impeachment…

    The Dems & the Deep State DESPERATELY NEED to keep Trump on the defensive, hopefully resulting in Barr holding off on indictments which could look like political retaliation, until they can HOPEFULLY get Trump out of office in 2020, fire Barr, & sweep all the crimes back under the rug…

    I have just read your posting. A couple of facts stand out.
    1.. you seem to want to attribute to me infallible powers. I am certainly not infallible. I am honored that you have placed me in the hallow company with the likes of Lord Kelvin and Einstein, both of whom at some points in their careers disseminated false or incorrect data. Kelvin in 1883 as the president of the Royal Society made the assertion that X-rays were a hoax and Einstein in 1932 came up with a cosmological constant to explain the mathematics in the equations for an unchanging universe. The universe was subsequently shown to be expanding and not unchanging.

    2.Students are always advised to carefully read their exam scripts before answering questions.. If you had taken your time to read the postings, you would have observed the posting by David at 6.53 am which gave a link for me to investigate. My subsequent posting at 8.24 am is implicit in acknowledging that there was some truth to the link provided as clearly shown by “..How do you think other white countries refer to black countries? The other countries don’t say it openly. To tell you the truth, Trump might ( operative word is might) have a point considering the action of black dictators towards their own people.” Note my use of English: implicit is the acknowledgement that Trump actually said the words alluded to.

    3 I seem to detect some anger in your posting towards the description of black countries as “.shit hole countries”. In my field of science such negative terms are seem often ( James Watson and his opinion of the lack of intelligence of blacks’: William Shockley the inventor of the transistor found that black music was okay but that blacks couldn’t tackle abstract reasoning and so on.

    LEVIN: MUELLER ‘WANTED TO GIVE THE DEMOCRATS EVERYTHING THEY WANTED’ FOR IMPEACHMENT

    LevinTV host Mark Levin lambasted the widely discussed press conference held by special counsel Robert Mueller.

    Levin took issue with Mueller’s implication that President Trump was apparently somehow responsible for proving his own innocence against politically motivated allegations of collusion and obstruction.

    Earlier that day, a visibly nervous Mueller told reporters, “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” which isn’t the job of a prosecutor.

    “The Fifth Amendment is what provides us with due process in this country; the Sixth Amendment is what provides us with the right to a jury trial; the Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments are what provide us with presumption of innocence,” Levin explained. “And, of course, none of those applied against the president of the United States, because he is the president of the United States.”

    Levin also criticized Mueller for going “beyond” his report in Wednesday’s press conference “because he wanted to give the Democrats everything they wanted today, because his report didn’t go far enough. Moreover, the Democrats were very upset with this report. Therefore, Mr. Mueller went beyond his report. Now why did Mr. Mueller go beyond his report to give the Democrats what they wanted today? Because Mr. Mueller doesn’t want to testify in public before Congress, and the Democrats control these committees in the House of Representatives, specifically the Judiciary Committee. … Mr. Mueller doesn’t want his investigation to be scrutinized; Mr. Mueller doesn’t want to be cross-examined by the Republicans; he doesn’t want any questions about his hirings, about his decisions, about his conduct, about the leaks, about omitting Hillary Clinton, the dossier, the top levels of the FBI, about his coziness with Comey, about whether or not his office leaked. … Mr. Mueller doesn’t want to answer any of a thousand and one questions that would be posed to him by the Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee. So he gave the Democrats what they wanted today.”

    “This man has done more damage to our Constitution by turning our justice system inside out, by violating our Bill of Rights, by undermining this president than Vladimir Putin could ever hope to do,” Levin concluded. “And I’m no fan of Vladimir Putin, as you well know.”

    Re Mueller, that’s also your free will. I am not privvy to any data which you may have that led to your conclusion. I am not aware that Mueller was implicated in leaking info to Whitey Bulger and that entire sordid mess of Bulger as informant and still operating his criminal enterprise so viciously…so I take the man’s career on the entirety of what’s in public domain thus I give him good marks as a just and reasoned man.

    Similarly Comey…they both prosecuted Dem and Repub politicians and worked well with both too.

    How else can you explain a black-skinned person believing uncontestedly in a god called Yahweh and his son Jesus aka Horus or Helios with white skin and blue eyes?

    Blacks are the most stupid creatures on God’s green Earth.
    Science to blacks in general is like Light to the Devil or the existence of order to Apep or Apophis.

    If you want to hide any thing (knowledge or science) from a black person put it in a book (except the Jewish manuscript of lies, legends and myths).

    Here is the sixty-four-dollar question:
    How come blacks (when they migrate to ‘white’ countries) become the servants to other races and the social peripherals but the reverse is true when other races migrate to countries politically controlled by blacks, generally speaking?

    How come, in Barbados, the local blacks work for the immigrant ‘Indian’ community (mainly Muslim) which own and control their own economic space unlike the blacks?

    How long should naïve blacks continue to be hewers of wood and drawers of water for ‘others’ while their own go without and even ‘godless’?

    Until blacks see the Light and come to the true ‘Christian’ understanding as to ‘Who’ or ‘What’ created them with their black skins, then black people will always remain in perpetual darkness as to their origin and to their destiny and role among the many colourful fabrics of humanity.

Do you know of any descendant of the Atlantic slave trade that has maintained his original family name from Africa? We all come by our names via some European person or place, some of us have tried to reclaim African names but we are guessing or applying what seems appropriate. If we had any “gods” they have been lost like our names in the mist of time and it was simple to adopt the “gods’ of the conqueror

    The indentured servants in Guyana and Trinidad were mainly small landowners in their native India and as soon as they were discharged from their obligations they returned to the land and that fueled some of their economic success it is easier to build on what you know, again culture is important. BTW every god forsaken little town in Canada has a Chinese Restaurant and some of the owners had never operated or worked in a Restaurant before but their culture prepared them to work for themselves and they saw what worked for their kin and succeeded by trial and error.

    As for Uganda,Kenya etc. what historical conditions preceded the economic domination of one group over the other? South Africa had laws that made everyone including East Indians superior to “Bantus” in the pecking order.

    In the UK we have people from all over the world, and among the newer immigrants Caribbeans have been here in large numbers longer. Since their arrival, the Chinese, as you say, have embarked on opening a large number of take-away restaurants. I have a friend who is a Big Four accountants, but in the evenings and at weekends she works in her parents East London restaurant.
    The corner shops in our major cities have been dominated by the Asians (Indians and Pakistanis), along with medicine and some other professions; but, in large, Caribbean people prefer to be employees, mainly in the public sector, and they shy away from self-employment.
    The pub trade in Britain has been under enormous pressure for a long time. As a result I have been suggesting that we should buy a large pub (a trust would be able to raise a commercial mortgage, or it could be a good investment for the NIS) and use it as a community facility, complete with accommodation, a restaurant, a library – called Barbados House.
    Of course, there was lots of opposition. I then suggested that before we go ahead we should set up a working party to look at the idea. One man was so angry at the very idea of a working party he screamed there was no need for it. Some time later the high commission re-named itself Barbados House. No connection, of course.
    In the meantime, every function we put on we must hire a room (the Holiday Inn is a favourite). I will cut it short, but you could look at care homes, the private coach sector, credit unions, etc. All of which we have had enormous collective experience, but have failed to take the next step – ownership.

    A spokesperson for Mr Khan said the “childish insults should be beneath the president of the United States”.

    In the past Donald Trump challenges Sadiq Khan to IQ test…Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Donald Trump had challenged the new London mayor to an IQ test after Sadiq Khan said he was ignorant. Mr Khan reacted to Mr Trump’s latest comments, saying his views on Islam were ignorant.

    The US president used an interview ahead of his UK visit in 2018 to say how he saw Sadiq Khan Reaction over the wave of terror attacks in the capital. He also blamed the mayor for a rise in immigration, saying “look at all the crime brought in”.

    In an interview the US president hit out at immigration into Europe, describing the movement of “millions of people” as “very sad”.

    “Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he [Mr Khan] has done a very bad job on terrorism”, Mr Trump said.

    “I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”

    Mr Trump …”At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!”

    As he came in to land, Mr Trump wrote: “Sadiq Khan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom.

    “He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me.

    “Kahn [sic] reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height.
