September 1,2016:

The US Presidential elections will be held on November 4 this year. And the heat is on!

The Republican nominee Donald J Trump is known for his loud mouth. He ignites passion, heat, and controversy.
If you have secretly been wanting one of those naked Donald Trump statues that popped up in several U.S. cities last month, one is going up for sale.

The life-size statue is expected to go up for auction in Los Angeles in October with an estimated price tag of between $10,000 and $20,000.

Some of the money raised from the sale will go to the National Immigration Forum, which advocates for immigrant rights.

The statue was the creation of a group of anonymous artists calling themselves INDECLINE.

Not to be left behind, Trump supporters swung into action to get a statue of Hillary Clinton out!

The Trump statue is not the only piece with a political angle. One piece shows the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wearing a tuxedo. It is expected to go for $15,000.

One of the statues placed in New York’s Union Square showed a naked Trump, hands crossing a large stomach. It was later removed by city officials. Other statues were seen in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Cleveland. The Los Angeles version is the one for sale in the auction.

As the elections draw near, watch out for more joy and sorrow to the campaigning! Naturally, these kinds of male sculptures or naked statues do not go well with the intense fans and supporters. And what about the family members? What about Donald Trump’s wife and family members? Naturally, the family members have to take the things in stride when someone is in public life.

Criticising the US President Donald Trump for his protectionists policies, Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman on Saturday accused President Trump of not taking his jobs seriously. Following the protectisists measures taken by the US President, there could be “risks of disruptive trade war”, he said.

President Donald Trump has pledged to avoid any new foreign business deals during his term in office.

“He does not take the job seriously. He doesn’t say to himself that I am the most important official in the world; I have better do my homework for understanding the issue. ..He just goes that these are my gut feeling and hires people who make him feel good…that is a frightening prospect,” Krugman said responding to a query on his perception on Trump. On the economic issues President Trump’s gut feelings are “protectionist” and his views of America were “50 years out of date”.

“He wants America a heavy industrial country in the way it was when he was a young man. That is not just going to happen but he attempts to make it happen, which is extremely disruptive to America and to the global as a whole,” Nobel Laureate said. Krugman said he was until recently optimistic that Trump’s protectionist policies would not see the light of the day.

“Until about two weeks ago, I was quite optimistic that it would not happen. The reason was not because the President would get good economic advice but because the US businesses are invested in a globalised economy. All the investments the businesses have made is based upon the assumptions that the open trading system would continue. There is an enormous amount of fiscal capital and a large number of jobs are dependent on these value chains,” he said at the News18 Rising India Summit here.

Krugman further said: “I had assumed the influence of these business communities would be sufficient… that it would not happen. I am less optimistic now…we have seen reasonably sensible Economic Council Head was fired, completely irrational tariff (was) imposed on steel and aluminium.”

The President also called for more mental institutions and hospitals in addition to the idea of arming teachers.

According to him, immediate issue is going to be confrontation not with China, but with Europe as the “steel tariffs” will hit Europe. He said there are possible risks of “disruptive global trade war”.

Speaking on Chinese economy he said, “China is a financial crisis waiting to happen. China is a widely unbalanced economy…the country is sustaining itself with a credit bubble that is waiting to burst…There is a significant risk of Chinese bubble burst.”
