Editorials | The Guardian: The Observer view on Donald Trumps tour of Asia | Observer editorial

The American presidents poor grasp of international relations, his bluster and his America first rhetoric are unlikely to reap success in the face of Xi Jinping pragmatism

The phrase bull in a china shop might have been coined to describe this weeks tour of Asia by Donald Trump. During last years presidential election campaign, he raged against China, terming it an enemy and accusing Beijing of raping America with predatory trade practices. With characteristic insensitivity, he suggested Japan should acquire nuclear weapons and South Korea should pay more for its defence. He promised to tear up the multilateral Trans-Pacific Partnership, a promise he then fulfilled. And he vowed to eliminate the threat posed by North Korea by any means, including military action.

Editorials | The Guardian: The Observer view on sexual harassment in Westminster | Observer editorial

Wholesale reform is needed by our leaders in parliament and society as a wholeIt has taken less than a month for the assault and harassment scandal that has engulfed Hollywood to spread to Westminster. In the past few days, our political system has become paralysed by allegations of assault and harassment by male MPs. Instead of a sober, swift and professional response, we have witnessed the spectacle of political parties desperately scrabbling to produce an adequate reaction and ministers clumsily fighting for their political lives.

There is a real risk the gravity of the crisis that has consumed Westminster is judged superficially by the number of political scalps it claims. In the wake of a sexual harassment scandal that has highlighted the abuses of power that can take place in the shadowy corridors of Westminster, this cannot be allowed to happen.

Is the American republic built to withstand a malevolent president? | Michael Goldfarb

The principle of common good underpins the constitution. Donald Trump is gleefully shredding that idealThe Trump administration, having passed the six-month milestone in office, kicked off the next phase of his presidency with an explosion of crazy, spread over the past seven days. Like sweeps week on The Apprentice, every day saw some headline-grabbing event to garner ratings. It started with leaks against his former bosom buddy, attorney general, Jeff Sessions. President Trump, sources said, was planning to fire him. It moved on to a speech to the Boy Scouts of America jamboree, where Trump told the story of a property developer who lost a fortune and was lurking at a New York party with the hottest people. Later, there was a tweet announcement banning transgender people from the military.

This explosion of crazy concluded with his new White House chief of communications, Anthony Scaramucci, calling the New Yorkers political correspondent Ryan Lizza to trash virtually everyone in the White House. He compared himself positively to the presidents dark lord and special adviser, Stephen Bannon: Im not Steve Bannon, Im not trying to suck my own cock. Im not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the president.
