    Thanks for speaking out.

    Trump turning US into 'world champion of extreme inequality', UN envoy warns


    Special rapporteur Philip Alston, fresh from fact-finding tour, issues devastating critique of US society and condemns ‘private wealth and public squalor’

    Philip Alston, the UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, has completed a two-week official tour of the US by releasing an excoriating attack on the direction of the nation. Not only does he warn that the tax bill currently being rushed through Congress will hugely increase already large disparities between rich and poor, he accuses Trump and his party of consciously distorting the shape of American society in a “bid to become the most unequal society in the world”.

    Why would Americans - or anyone - want to be equal with other countries?

    America First. Difficult concept.

    there are a lot more countries that are ''unequal'' !!! :laugh::laugh:

    and the stats are skewed because the US has so many millionaires compared to these shit countries like Kenya, etc
    Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates-Americans and super rich...they probably make more money than a lot of African countries put together

    F%^k the UN----if the US is so bad, why do MILLIONS want to come here every year?????
    what a stupid, stupid article/concept
    I guess Africa and African countries are much better with:
    highest:
    illiteracy, poverty, disease, etc???
