Wolfgang Schäuble zur Lage in Europa | spiegel.tv
24:20 - Eric Schmitz told Schaeuble in Davos 2016 (Feb) - that Schaeuble should think about the possibility of Trump being President. Not candidate, but President.
See book Taibbi about the election and other books about the election.
tl;dr from this anecdote, big data showed (+ business instinct of Eric Schmitz?) the possibility of Trump. Thus, VERY Interesting, that Hillary Clinton campaign did not try mitigate risk and adopt more Sanders or put him as Vice president or other Bernie-like politicians.

Facebook to share Russia-linked political adverts with investigators - BBC News
Earlier this month it was revealed that politically-charged advertising had been targeted at American voters, paid for, Facebook believed, by Russian actors with links to the Kremlin.
The adverts did not support a specific candidate, Facebook said, but instead posted inflammatory information on hot topics, such as immigration.

Hillary Clinton's book has a clear message: don't blame me | Thomas Frank | Opinion | The Guardian
She seems to have been almost totally unprepared for the outburst of populist anger that characterized 2016, an outburst that came under half a dozen different guises: trade, outsourcing, immigration, opiates, deindustrialization, and the recent spectacle of Wall Street criminals getting bailed out. It wasn’t the issues that mattered so much as the outrage, and Donald Trump put himself in front of it. Clinton couldn’t. [...] But by and large, Clinton’s efforts to understand populism always get short-circuited, probably because taking it seriously might lead one to conclude that working people have a legitimate beef with her and the Democratic party. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41244474 &! https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/sep/12/hillary-clinton-supporters-memoir-book

It has emerged that Robert Mercer, a hedge-fund billionaire, who helped to finance the Trump campaign and who was revealed this weekend as one of the owners of the rightwing Breitbart News Network, is a long-time friend of Nigel Farage. He directed his data analytics firm to provide expert advice to the Leave campaign on how to target swing voters via Facebook – a donation of services that was not declared to the electoral commission.

How to Listen to Donald Trump Every Day for Years - The New York Times
We have to stop thinking that what President Trump says has any deeper significance [...] One major concern: His barking style lends itself to expressing casual hatred too easily. Also, Mr. Obama had much less room to be “authentic.” Mr. Trump has the privilege of talking as he pleases with no concern for how he sounds. He can string his impressions together as they come, while a black politician who sounds too “street” gets only so far. (Hillary Clinton, too, was boxed in, by gender. If she had used traits associated with the casual speech of women she would have been branded as trivial.) // language and bar for black presidents much higher - https://youtu.be/65I5aEYiaIs

Married To Bill, Lost To Barack, Lost To Donald: Bingo! | The Daily Caller
[ hard hitting in the gut, but true past actions speak louder that current campaign promises ] And it’s more important than any other thing: It tells our daughters that it’s never okay to sell out to the man.

A lifetime ago Hillary Clinton said “I do.” But she didn’t say “I do” to love and marriage, or to a man. She said “I do” to power. Because of that compromise, she lost the sympathy of the American people and, perhaps, maybe she lost whatever was human and sympathetic about her.

he “no longer believe[s] that capitalism and democracy are compatible.” (Thiel has since said that he was wrong to think America was a democracy, calling it instead a “state dominated by very unelected, technocratic agencies”). [...] Thiel let slip that he was pessimistic about the current system continuing. The failure of the present Establishment, according to Thiel, may point to Marxism, libertarianism, or something else, but “it’s going to be this increasingly volatile trajectory of figuring out what that’s going to be.” [...] political zero to one
