US President and former reality TV star Donald Trump has revelled in his ability to shock establishment America and enjoys a reputation among supporters for straight talking. In tweets, press conferences and at campaign-style rallies, the 71-year-old has blasted "political correctness" in favour of voicing opinions popular with his base — but anathema to his liberal foes.
