In summary, “Trump” goes from 351 to 181 and back to 203, and “Korea” from 69 to 84 to 70, “China” which was stable (40 to 39) disappears, “Harvey (35) was replaced by “Irma” (74) which has bee replaced by Maria (33), and “Myanmar” went from 15, to 34 and now to 21, and the United Nations has appeared at 25. Another specific issue is Health Care (11) and the Affordable Care Act (9).

Trump has again dominated the news for this second fortnight of September, again sharing the news with Korea and another hurricane, this time Hurricane Maria and particularly its destruction in Puerto Rico. We mentioned in our preceding issue that “violence in Charlottesville and white supremacists have all but been forgotten and replaced by further North Korean threats, the killing of Rohingya in Myanmar and Trump’s threat to leave the nuclear agreement with Iran”. This is still the case, although the latter subject is not currently a major topic but will increase in importance shortly. The official investigation into “The Russia Thing” continues to move forward and has moved up in importance during the fortnight, and may continue to do so but it surely “not going away” as Trump and his sidekicks wish.
