Bernie Sanders on why Trump must be stopped.
By Lee Moran – The Huffington Post
“This guy is running his entire campaign based on bigotry,” Sanders continued. “Based on trying to divide us up, based on trying to insult Mexicans, Latinos and Muslims and women and African Americans.” READ MORE
Betting on the Gender Gap. The women’s vote in the high-stakes elections of 2016.
By Katherine Spillar – Ms. Magazine
“The number of women registering to vote continues to outpace men, and women of color comprise the fastest-growing segment of women voters. African American and Latina women are important components of the gender gap. In 2012, black women voted at higher rates than other women—70.1 percent compared to 65.6 percent of white women—and they voted overwhelmingly (96 percent) for Obama.
The gender gap is in and out of the news this election cycle. The 2016 election likely will have the largest gender gap in history, which could reach a 15-point difference between women and men in their choices for the country’s political leadership. More than ever before, women have the power to elect the next president, decide the makeup of Congress, select state legislators and shape the national agenda.” READ MORE
Aziz Ansari: Why Trump makes me scared for my family.
By Aziz Ansari – The New York Times
“Today, with the presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and others like him spewing hate speech, prejudice is reaching new levels. It’s visceral, and scary, and it affects how people live, work and pray. It makes me afraid for my family. It also makes no sense.” READ MORE
Donald Trump described a dangerous American hellscape that doesn’t exist.
By German Lopez – Vox
“But if you break down the numbers, Americans are — despite some worrying trends in a few places — safer than they have been in decades.” READ MORE
Donald Trump is a unique threat to American democracy.
By Editorial Board – The Washington Post
“Donald J. Trump, until now a Republican problem, this week became a challenge the nation must confront and overcome. The real estate tycoon is uniquely unqualified to serve as president, in experience and temperament. He is mounting a campaign of snarl and sneer, not substance. To the extent he has views, they are wrong in their diagnosis of America’s problems and dangerous in their proposed solutions. Mr. Trump’s politics of denigration and division could strain the bonds that have held a diverse nation together. His contempt for constitutional norms might reveal the nation’s two-century-old experiment in checks and balances to be more fragile than we knew.” READ MORE

Donald Trump could trigger the largest recession since the Great Depression.
By Ben Walsh – The Huffington Post
“Donald Trump’s economic policies are so bad that they would produce the longest U.S. recession since the Great Depression, a report from economists at Moody’s Analytics found last week. Assume, as the economists did, that Trump could implement his key economic policies — tax cuts skewed heavily to the one percent, mass deportation of illegal immigrants, and huge tariffs on imports from China and Mexico — during his first two years as president.” READ MORE
Women can rule the world by January.
“If Hillary Clinton becomes U.S. president in November, women could be running the Western World by January. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who fended off a recession in Germany during the global economic crisis, is already considered to be the most powerful leader in the history of the European Union. She is acting as de-facto leader of Europe as she endeavors to save the failing euro and navigate the region through an unprecedented refugee crisis. Janet Yellen, the head of the Federal Reserve, is arguably the most powerful economic leader in the world, exercising massive influence over global financial markets and the U.S. economy. Reinforcing the flanks, Christine Lagarde begins her second term this month as the world’s top banker. She is the first female head of the International Monetary Fund, the economic advisor for 189 countries, and she has made gender economic equality a priority for the global organization.” READ MORE.
Donald Trump may turn these swing states BLUE.
By The Associated Press – Fortune
“His disparaging words about Mexicans and women and weak campaign organization are the culprits. Once a swing state in presidential elections, Colorado has teetered on the brink of becoming solidly Democratic. Donald Trump may have pushed it over the edge. Trump’s disparaging words about Mexicans, negative comments about women and weak campaign organization have punctuated the state’s shift from a nip-and-tuck battleground to one that’s Democrat-friendly. For the first time in more than 20 years, there are now more registered Democrats in the state than Republicans. “Trump is turning off as many key voter groups as we have in this state,” said former state Republican Party Chairman Dick Wadhams. “I would have to believe Trump’s having trouble.” READ MORE

“If the Russian president could design a candidate to undermine American interests—and advance his own—he’d look a lot like Donald Trump.” READ MORE
Could Trump lose the millennial vote to Gary Johnson?
By Aaron Blake – The Washington Post
“An interesting nugget from the big new Pew Research Center poll of the 2016 election: Among voters under age 30, Donald Trump is at 21 percent … and Gary Johnson is at 22 percent. Yes, Trump is in danger of finishing third among young voters — at least according to this one poll. But it’s not the only one showing him struggling with them.” READ MORE
Michael Bloomberg calls Donald Trump ‘risky, reckless’.
By Fred Imbert – CNBC
“I understand the appeal of a businessman president. But Trump’s business plan is a disaster in the making. He would make it harder for small businesses to compete, do great damage to our economy, [and] threaten the retirement savings of millions of Americans,” the former New York City mayor said in a speech at the Democratic National Convention. “Trump is a risky, reckless, and radical choice. And we can’t afford to make that choice.” READ MORE
Hillary Clinton is right: Donald Trump threatens World War III.
By Jonathan Alter – The Daily Beast
“If the Republican candidate for president can be “bait[ed] with a tweet,” as Clinton so memorably put it—if that disqualifies him from handling nuclear weapons, as she said—then the risk of World War III should be an issue in the 2016 campaign. Beyond his manifestly unsuitable temperament, Donald Trump will “endanger the world as we know it,” as Sen. Cory Booker put it. If you bust up the architecture of the postwar world—as Trump is threatening to do, either intentionally or out of ignorance—the war-and-peace conversation is not only fair, but necessary.” READ MORE
