Trump bowls over the delegates and files nomination

Cjb9wATUUAMcHyBWashington: In an unsuspected political scenario, Donald Trump surprisingly reached the expected number of delegates and filed for the nomination for President (Republican). This has taken politicians and the party supporters by surprise as it came out totally unexpected. This happened when a few of republican unbound delegates decided to support Trump at their national convention which is expected to happen in July. This made Trump the top in the list of Associated Press delegates.

20438325-mmmainOne of his leading supporters are Pam Pollard, Oklahoma GOP chairwoman, She says that she has absolutely no problem in supporting Mr. Trump and also that he has managed to touch a particular part of the electorate who is unhappy with the present state of the country and wants it to change. Trump has been a political commentator and critic for many years before he decided to run for the President. He achieved support of 1238 delegates for nomination (the minimum number of delegates required is 1237.)

There has been an outrage of criticism regarding Trump’s attitude and his crass personality. He has been in in the media for his derogatory comments on women and has been trolled extensively by social media and other social networking sites. All this deeply affected his popularity which made people from the right to give him a cold response and an obvious lack of support .However, things have taken a new and disturbing twist which might be an indication of the internal problems.

Widespread reaction to Zuckerberg’s decision for charity

2014-12-12-c9-zuck.b54a1Facebook founder and CEO announced that he is planning to give away 99% of his Facebook shares for promoting equality and also to advance human potential. It was not well taken by people around the world and there were several camps.

Buzz Feed was of the opinion that Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to which they are planning to donate is a corporation (LLC) and is not really a non-profit charity organization. It also pointed out that the money would not be utilized just on charitable causes but on private investments which will create lobbying and advocacy work too. Many social critics call the giveaway structure to be evidently flawed even though the depth of flaw cannot be fathomed. There is also a possibility that, as most of the non-profit organizations are created at first as corporations and only then is it changed to the purpose of charity.

Screen-ShotSo even this LLC may have a chance of getting converted into future. Another group is of the opinion that all the money is being given away to the causes and events which Zuckerberg would think is necessary to change and better the world which may not be the real problem with the world. Some others say how most charity organizations do not bring any help or change to the society.

Even though most of the times the intentions are good, there has been no great help that has come out of it and sometimes it has been even destructive or neutral. These people are of the opinion that the most helpful way to better the world would be to invest the money onto organizations and people who are already in the field as they would be well experienced in this forte and area and would be able to do something beneficial.
