Even though I was born in Denmark to a Danish mother, have lived in Denmark for most of my life, and am married to a Dane and have two Danish children, my post-Brexit application for Danish citizenship was rejected. “You have not documented your knowledge and understanding of Danish society, culture and history,” I was told in a letter from the Danish Ministry of Immigration and Integration.

For Trump, that amounted to a triumphant outcome in his extraordinary gamble with the rogue kingdom's despotic leader.
