How fucking bad is it that our president can't visit our closest ally, Great Britain?

How and how long to repair this damage? Even with Shithole gone, the world knows that our citizens elected him. True enough, the election was fucked with, but the fact remains, he was certified by our electoral college as the 45th President.

1. We got new friends. Putin, Duterte, etc.

Old friends are the one kind of gold Twitler doesn't like.

2. That is the maddening thing, he lost the electoral college but when the new KGB

He didnt win. He didnt think he was gonna win for a reason, he didnt.

5. But enough Americans voted for Trump to make it all seem plausible.

And Americans refuse to secure their voting system and they keep electing a corrupt congress.

We allowed Bush and Trump to be "elected."

7. Be a lot worse if they were to treat him as normal IMO . BRAVO for the difference and

remember they could of gone all lovey dove with trump if UKIP has become more popular
But glad that didn't happen and England still has Brexit and EU issues
Really they do not need crazy racist Trump there and they know it.
Sorry but a portion of Americans have gone whack and it is going to damage our rep

8. Putin and Xi would love for the center of power to the East

Especially if they control energy. Unseating the Euro-centric structure of pretty much everything is probably the goal.

Brexit ....France failed ....Trump...cutting or damaging the "Special Relationship"

Just a thought.

Bush came to the UK despite the massive protest that greeted his visits.

It was conceived and intend to prevent someone like Drump to becoming president.

Although maybe it was actually gerrymandering that did it...

our reputation will be mostly restored. The world will understand that we were attacked by Russia and IMO they will forgive.

He/she can be a run of the mill mediocre politician and still seem like a superstar after this bullshit.

18. Wouldn't Israel or Canada be our closest ally?

Since it joined the EU, Great Britain would be somewhere down the list. Maybe after Brexit they could become number 1.

22. Re gaebana post (thanks!) only UK and Canada considered allies by over 50%

https://today.yougov.com/news/2017/02/02/americas-friends-and-enemies/

UK and Canada tied at 55% as allies.
Australia and Israel next closest at 45% and 44% respectively.

Adding Friendly plus Ally ratings, Canada is tops at 85%, Australia at 83% and UK at 80%. Israel lands at 66% due to a high Unsure at 21%.

19. Elected him, and

…..let him stay for a year. It will take a decade to repair this. Apart from how stupid and racist and tawdry he is—he's destroyed the meaning of America, the symbolic thing we stood for in the world.

And on another note —the reason our movies and music spread and had so much impact is because of being combined with American democratic ideals.

All that is over.

The whack-job judges he appoints and are confirmed by his lackeys will be around longer than that.

27. Absolutely true.

I too basically think we'll not recover for a generation—until most of the "deplorables" which includes the Republicans in Congress, have died. "Decade" was my feeble attempt at optimism, which truth be told, I do not really feel.

21. Foreign affairs are supposed to be RepubliCONs strong suit.


Trump thought that meant trickle down economics in Moscow hotel rooms.

Especially if he could pee on the bed that Obama slept in.
