In case you missed it, Donald Trump has been having a bit of a nightmare following the Democratic convention.

This week he has continued a public feud with the parents of a Muslim American soldier who was killed in Iraq.

He responded to Khizr Khan's speech at the Democratic National Convention, which criticised Trump's attitudes to Muslims, by suggesting Khan's wife wasn't allowed to speak and that Khizr had "no right" to criticise him.

As YouGov found, the public weren't happy with that response.

Wikileaks also recently published thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, which revealed that a plan had been formulated to undermine Bernie Sanders' campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Trump used this opportunity to take a swing at Clinton, after the Kremlin denied it was behind the leak:

Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.

I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press.

Again, YouGov found that most Americans thought that this, also, was a bad idea.

Now people are questioning how he would handle a diplomatic relationship with Russia.

For all his bluster, he's seen as a weaker leader than Clinton.

Now rumours are circulating that the GOP are searching for a way to rid themselves of their candidate, as Hillary's lead has grown in the polls.

So what is the overall picture?


That's what you get when your candidate has absolutely no filter.
