I'm only paying devil's advocate with you. It makes these threads more fun. Of course Trump is having a massive effect on international politics. I just think it's too soon to draw conclusions on this particular guy's motive. Especially since I saw the feminism support on Facebook. Doesn't really mesh with Trumpism. The guy is most likely a loon.
But you're not doing it well. Playing devil's advocate means being able to articulate a position. I don't think you're having fun at all, I think you're trying to get over the fact that a foreigner said something uncomplimentary about the US and are still trying to get back at me for having done that. As for drawing conclusions, again you refuse to read. I have said, consistently, I think it's an influencing factor. I'm far from alone in that view. I have also said the incident will be thoroughly investigated and we'll eventually have a better idea if it was or not. But my opinion, and again, I've been quite clear this is all opinion, is that the Trump effect was in play. I'm sorry you don't like my opinion but I'm not changing it until there is reason to do so. And yes, no matter what conclusions are drawn, what influences are attributed, the guy's a loon. I mean, to be influenced by anyone or anything to commit an act like this means you're somewhat mentally unstable. That's basically a prerequisite.
