How Donald Trump Destroyed America
During early 2016, people who did NOT live in the United States, thought Trump was a clown to give the American elections a kind of frivolous flavour.
People who had seen him on Television thought he was, to put it in language suitable for a General Audience, ridiculous.
He was a bloated loud mouth, stupid, with this kind of pretension that makes waiters spit into his soup and mechanics put sugar in his gas tank.
When he spoke, that offense whine in his voice made many turn the channel.
He was an ugly guy with money who bought the women who shared his bed, and so no one, who didn't live in the United States thought he had a chance of winning the Presidential Election.
Those who lived in the United States, or who visited frequently, and were politically astute, had a sneaking suspicion that having elected Barack Obama president in 2008 and 2012, there would be a swing in the opposite direction.
Racism in America had surged during the years of the 'Black Man in the White House'. It was felt that those who had developed a hatred for Obama would find the most racist isolationist they could find to counter him and his policies.
Donald Trump, who was well known for his white supremacy and connections to various leaders in that realm, was the obvious choice for those who would like to reimpose slavery.
It was expected that Trump would garner the votes of these bigots but it was not believed that the population of racists was as high as it was.
This delusion was due to the limitations placed on free speech in the United States where people needed to be 'politically correct' so would not say in 2016 what they would have no problem saying thirty years ago.
The Fake News Saga
During the period 2008 - 2015 a set of 'writers' calling themselves 'White House Insider' created a plethora of absolutely false stories about Barack Obama which they published on Triond, (a now defunct writing site) which were so popular, they were given their own section on which to spread their spoof.
They made a great deal of money through Adsense.
Youths in Macedonia, taking a page from their book, created a number of fake American sites where they published invented stories which were anti-Clinton and pro-Trump.
They did it for the money.
They would put the links on Facebook where they would be clicked on, and the reader would arrive on the site, thinking it was genuine. The Macedonians would receive pay from the ads which festooned the site.
There were many Fake Stories, some would later be attributed to Russian Interference in the American Election.
Trump, fully aware that he had been elected due to many of these Fake News stories did the usual cowardly act of claiming other news agencies, from the BBC to CNN spread 'fake news' .
This trick of distraction is often used by the guilty party to turn attention from one's own actions to that of others, as if casting aspersions on others places one in an invulnerable position.
Over the past thirty years the economic realities of the world have changed. Those stuck in the 1950s mentality maintain the delusion that trade with America is crucial to all nations.
The fact is, there are 195 countries in the World.
Many fall into the category of 3rd World, which means they have been ignorable markets to the United States, but prime real estate for China.
From Africa to the Caribbean, most products come from China. Most aid comes from China, most development comes from China.
China builds roads, bridges, other infra-structure in many 3rd World nations. While these engineers are operating with the welcome of the country, their families are opening businesses and important vast quantities of goods made in China.
From refrigerators to microwaves, washing machines to radios, from shoes to hats, everything is made in China.
What is not from China, be it cars; made in Japan or Korea, buses made in India, there are very few items made in America. In fact, in the 3rd World, virtually nothing comes from the 1st World, save perhaps luxury cars, like Mercedes Benz.
To sneer about America First, as if the world would be deprived of some benefit if America went into isolation, proves the ignorance of Donald Trump and his 'team'.
To prove how ridiculous the idea that if America turned its back other nations would die, it didn't take a full 24 hours for the car factory closed by America in Mexico to be reopened by China.
The fact is, China has long replaced America in most of the world and the possibility of America regaining a foothold is highly unlikely.
Know How To Talk To People
During the years of Barack Obama's Presidency the nations of the world developed a respect for him and America. Nations wanted him to visit, leaders wanted to meet him.
He knew how to negotiate, how to set his positions clearly, and was Presidential.
He would arrive in a nation, fully aware of their culture so could use the various slang words and focus on what was important to them.
Considering how he looked and held himself, other leaders respected him and the United States.
For him to be replaced by a loud mouthed clown who can throw paper towels at hurricane survivors and label other nations as Sh8tholes, coming so close behind, emphasises Trump's intellectual inferiority and lack of class.
Where Obama would adopt a positive successful style, Trump crosses his arms over his chest which symbolises his feelings of fear and inferiority.
Where Obama knew how to speak, Trump whines and makes empty threats.
Where Putin had to meet Obama as an equal, he sees Trump as that loud mouthed fat boy in the corner.
With his orange skin and clumsy body, his whining voice, his empty threats, his 'tweets' the world knows that he is easily ignored.
What makes him so funny to the rest of the world is that he takes himself seriously.
The plus side of the Trump administration is that many nations are quietly slipping out of the American net.
Some nations know they can 'play' Trump and get what they want by flattery or pretend deference.
That many countries don't want him in their borders, nor do dignitaries which to meet him would alert a normal intellect that his behaviour and language is unacceptable.
But not Trump.
As any narcissist he is unaware of the actual impression he gives, the effect of his words and actions.
He is unaware that his behaviour reflects on the country he is supposed to represent.
He is unaware, for example, that soy beans are grown in the United States and sold to China. That if China doesn't buy those soy beans they have no market.
Trump is unaware that China buys more American cars than Americans do. That if China ceases to buy the cars, there is no market.
Any 'trade war' with China will result in China being victorious.
The world knows this, Trump doesn't.
Canada, for example, has never truly expanded its market. Now it can. It can replace America in many areas in a quiet manner, i.e. exporting cars and petroleum both of which have increased in the past year.
Then, of course, there's Trump's relationships with women, including Porn Stars, which doesn't horrify other nations. It is expected from someone who looks and acts like the U.S. President.
What the World Sees
The image above is not photo shopped.
This photograph is how the world sees Donald Trump and the United States.
For the world, it is a positive, it is a way to slip out of the America blanket and form relationships with other nations.
It is an opportunity for China to replace the United States.
Replacing America with it's over active CIA and interference in political matters with a nation like China which concentrates on profit and stays out of politics, is a plus for nations who have had their governments over or underthrown, who have had to conform to America's demands.
As America descends other nations rise.
Yes, for the American it is an embarrassing and sad assessment, but it is inescapable.
