DONALD Trump’s chances of winning the race for USA presidency have been dealt a further blow by a comment made by U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein.
Speaking in Geneva yesterday, Zeid (pictured) said the world will be in danger if Republican nominee Trump becomes president of the USA.
Zeid cited Trump’s views on vulnerable communities including minorities and his talk of authorising torture in interrogations, banned under international law, as “deeply unsettling and disturbing”.
“If Donald Trump is elected on the basis of what he has said already – and unless that changes – I think it is without any doubt that he would be dangerous from an international point of view,” Zeid said.
The USA elections are scheduled for the 8th of November.
So far Democratic party nominee Hilary Clinton is opening up a seemingly unassailable lead against her rival, with the latest allegations by two women that they had been sexually assaulted by Trump, elevating her in opinion polls.
