So the election is going to take place in the United States on 8 November. When last we visited this subject, we thought that the insurgent candidate Donald Trump was done. Then the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation intervened by saying that it was looking again at the Clinton emails, which set off a flurry of activity causing a surge in the polls for Donald Trump to the point where it is now believed that he will win on Tuesday. This will be a great tragedy for the western word. An idiot, a liar, a racist, a misogynist will be in the White House and the world will take three backward steps. At this point, all we can say is that we encourage all US citizens, all Bahamians who are US citizens to vote for Mrs. Clinton and let us pray for the best on Tuesday.
