Reporter Evan Osnos of The New Yorker has an interesting report Making of China Again, where he writes how China’s President Xi Jinping is learning to pick up the pieces as President Trump surrenders America’s global commitments. In the same vain reporter Fareed Zakaria writes in his The Washington Post opinion column The decline of U.S. influence is the great global story of our age.
According a new report in The New York Times titled Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I. From Politics. Then He Shaped an Election, the authors Matt Apuzzo et al. suggest that FBI tried to reshape the past bitter 2016 Presidential election. It’s very long investigative report with another perspective to understand the last Presidential election. There will be many more reports & books will be written by verious players for sometime.
An article How California Gave Us Trumpism in Politico Magazine to understand current national politics and how we reach to this point. Some of the president’s most hard-line advisers forged their beliefs in reaction to what they saw in their home state (California). Very interesting read! ∞

Interesting New York Times op-ed article World Fears Trump’s America. It is a Good Thing which and it makes lot of sense. Just like we need laws to regulate society & business but no-body seems like these laws. Likewise, we like our strong leaders but we don’t like how they act & do it. Very interesting read indeed !
In October 31, 2016 issue of New Yorker magazine there is an article titled – Hillary Clinton and the Populist Revolt by the magazine’s investigative reporter George Packer. The other day while driving home from work, I was listening to NPR’s Terry Gross’s Fresh air interview with the author of the article about current prudential election and American’s working class’s popular revolt. During my 20 min drive I found the interview very interesting. Next day, I read the online version of the article in New Yorker’s website. The article is long read but at the end I found the news report very useful to understand the various issues that are fueling the current revolt from the left and the right. In my view, the report is also balanced politically.
