    That sounds hysterical. I bet it will get a lot of views just because “Trump” is in the title. Being from the US, you see that name and cringe, wondering what someone is saying about him now! Lol! Your book is so far from it….I think!

      I know some slang from the UK because I’ve edited several books from there. This is the first time I saw “trumped,” though. I thought the same thing when I saw it.
