A Trump presidency could have been avoided if Clinton had only listened to American Arabs | The Independent: Nicholas Noe was Hillary’s senior man in Michigan, the beating heart of 186,000 residents who claim Arab ancestry. Noe also lives in Beirut where he runs Middle East Wire, which translates the Arab media, and writes long – sometimes over-wordy but often all too accurate – analyses of the Arab world. “We lost Michigan with its 16 electoral votes – and we lost it by a little more than 10,000 votes,” Noe says. “We were never able to get Hillary herself in front of the Arab community to listen to them.

The charity produces an admittedly stunning statistic such as this every year to highlight their work and to embarrass the nabobs gathering for the World Economic Forum in Davos, a sort of party conference for the rich. I have no doubt it is true, just as it was last year when they told us that a double-decker bus load of the richest 62 people on the planet are worth more than half the world’s population put together.
