White House: Wit, Wisdom & WisdomJournalist Phil Dampier, the author of White House: Wit, Wisdom & Wisecracks, has spoken out about his views on the outcome of yesterday’s presidential election.

“As my book shows, humour has always been a powerful weapon for Presidents so at least Trump has a head start there! Time will tell if he can grow into the role and be a success. I see lots of parallels with Ronald Reagan who was dismissed as a right wing former actor. But he was one of the most popular Presidents and helped to bring down the Berlin Wall. Maybe Trump will surprise us … we shall see.”
