This is James O'Brien's devastating take on Donald Trump becoming President of the United States of America.
Mr Trump will become the 45th President in January following a dramatic day at the polls in the US.
James believes that Trump preyed upon people's feelings that their lives are worse because of immigrants and that has impacted on both his election and Brexit.
James O'Brien On President Donald Trump
James O'Brien's devastating take on the election of President Donald Trump: "How will stopping immigration make people's lives better?"
Speaking on his LBC show, James said: "We will perhaps never know how many people voted for Donald Trump because their share his white supremicist, misogynistic world view.
"But you can safely say that everyone who voted for him either shares it or was not sufficiently put off by it to change their voting intention.
"The idea of America's first black President handing over to a successor who was officially endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan, that seems to be to sum things up.
"I can't see how my life gets better if I'm an American living in the Midwest, how does my life get better if we don't let Muslims into the country or we build a wall between Mexico and America or we start deporting illegal immigrants?
"This idea that people who say immigration has wrecked their lives have been ignored is palpably nonsensical. It's actually the scariest element of this because it's an attempt to rewrite reality."
