USA Image Globally Deteriorating

Post by Rogue on Tue Jun 27, 2017 8:14 am

No surprises here... 

BERLIN ― The image of the United States has deteriorated sharply across the globe under President Donald Trump and an overwhelming majority of people in other countries have no confidence in his ability to lead, a survey from the Pewd Research Center showed.


Five months into Trump’s presidency, the survey spanning 37 nations showed U.S. favorability ratings in the rest of the world slumping to 49 percent from 64 percent at the end of Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House.


But the falls were far steeper in some of America’s closest allies, including U.S. neighbors Mexico and Canada, and European partners like Germany and Spain.

I don't think a lot of people here in the US believe that they are loosing credibility. Some or most think they are gaining credibility, at least Trump supporters.


 When Trump was in the EU meeting and pushed one of the leaders to get in front, they thought he was great because that is how they want to see their leader. They say Obama was soft and weak, and the other leaders pushed him around. 



As you might already know the supreme court has granted a partial reversal of the executive order restricting some Muslim countries entry into the US. I think this going to hurt the US in the long run, and make it difficult for Americans to travel.
I think the US people are going to reject Trump at some point, because the division here in the US is getting stronger each day. If they do not curb it we could very well have a civil war coming our way.

Honestly, I think it started happening a long time before Trump... what with the whole rejection of science out of hand. Ignorance is catchy...

What do you mean, "with the rejection of science out of hand"?

To reject something 'out of hand' means to reject something just because of what it is and not because of anything based in truth or fact. If I rejected pink xray specs just because they're pink, I've rejected them out of hand.

Yes, the US is now controlled by religious nutters.

I have no problem with people believing in whatever they wish but I do have a problem when they force those beliefs onto others.

It could be worse Len. Think about Iraq, or Syria, at least for the moment.

You have my eternal empathy Len.

There are many very good people in the USA, I know some of them, but the old saying goes: The scum floats to the top of the pond!

The majority are usually the scape goats. Is it possible to change that? Or do we have to change that to make it possible?

Trumpy's lastest Tweet storm hasn't improved anything either. Accused Mika (MSNBC) of having a bleeding facelift.

He has an obsession with women and blood!
