My column: How Trump and Xi Can Make America and China Poor Again

My on-line column: If You Think Trump Is Helping Israel, You’re a Fool

A smart new article on why we need to measure inputs, not just outputs, in determining how best to educate our kids. (I know the author!)

My column: The Answers to Our Problems Aren’t as Simple as Left or Right

For me it is always about what is best for America – the country that I love and that you are now tearing apart. Respectfully yours, Tom Friedman

And you also know that on issues where I thought you were serving the American interest – like confronting China’s most abusive trade practices or not going to war with Iran – I have not hesitated to support your polices, very publicly. I will continue to do both.

Since you are clearly a reader of my column, you know that from the day you announced your candidacy, I have not hesitated to criticize you when I have seen you dividing our country, alienating America’s closest allies and giving succor to racists and bigots everywhere.


Mr. Trump. Steve Job’s biological father’s name was Abdulfattah Jandali. He came to the US as a student. He was from Homs, Syria.

On New Year's Eve President-elect Trump actually called some fellow Americans his "enemies." Really sad and troubling.

My latest column: Whatever Trump Is Hiding Is Hurting Us All Now

President Trump must ask Saudis to give full and credible account of what happened to Jamal Khashoggi inside their Istanbul consulate. And tell us what he knows too.

My column: ‘Trump’s Going to Get Re-elected, Isn’t He?’

Time for G.O.P. to Threaten to Fire Trump, my latest column.
