How Donald Trump Destroyed America

Updated on April 14, 2018

Pre-Election

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.

The Pendulum

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.

America First

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.

Laughing Stock

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.

      I do not listen to CNN. So that's the first error. Second, there were bombs sent, there were people executed, and the violence in America has increased. The Nasdaq is down... you can see that? You can deny everything I post. That doesn't render what I write false, as you are speaking from ignorance, and I am not.

      I explained about the end of string loans, meaning we are no longer buying US products. I wrote about the trade with China, and the new ties with Russia.

      My country is one of many which is following the same policy of NOT dealing with the U.S.

      There is a way you can do a search on the Internet to prove what I post. But that would only topple your house of cards, wouldn't it?

      The stock market is dynamic, and it is still stronger.

      Before we go any further look up the word "destroyed" and see if you can get any traction in your comments.

      you again deflected with CNN blab, none of this is imputed to president Trump. Just like when the republican congressmen were shot be a Bernie Sanders supporter that shot them because Bernie said the republicans were killing people with their healthcare.

      What 'red herrings?' The stock market is down, world trade is down, respect is down, there have been pipe bombs, the worst murder of Jews in American history just happened.

      This can be laid at Trump's door step. This is due to his hate speech, his ridiculous trade war, his support of Saudi Arabia.

      Obama created a respect for the United States which no longer exists. In my country, for example; we took 'string loans'. As you probably know nothing about politics or trade or reality; a 'string loan' means that the only use of that money is to purchase US products; Kraft, Heinz, Campbell's etc.

      This kind of loan, of course, is very profitable to the US; for it is a repayable loan, but American products are purchased.

      We have NOT taken a single string loan from the US since Trump is in office.

      The US would give us a loan to build a highway or a bridge, etc. We have taken NO LOANS from the US for these features, preferring the Chinese.

      If my country was singular in this, then shrug. But other nations, from Africa to South America are following our pattern.

      Recently, we have been soliciting tourists from Russia... the first plane landed today.

      We are soliciting tourists from South America and China.

      In short, as many other nations, my country is cutting down on the American market.

      We are selling our lobster to China. China used to buy lobster from the US... your state of Maine to be specific. No longer.

      The longer Trump stays in office, the more nations, as mine, will form agreements with ABA (anywhere but America).

      This is real.

      I didn't read these things, I know these things for a fact.

      If you were another kind of person, I would give you all the sites that you could verify what I have posted. But as you do not desire reality to encroach on your fantasy world, I leave you there.

      Deflection is a sign of a weak case, and name calling is childish because you can't make your point.

      As far as climate change he still backed out of the Paris Accord, and until that changes nothing has changed.

      BTW, I don't watch any cable news on a regular basis. I gave up cable news twelve years ago.

      What planet or dimensions do you live in today?

      America is not Destroyed by president Trump but the democrats are trying real hard to make that happen.

      What is your end game here?

      The falls on Wall Street came after official figures showed US home sales fell to their slowest pace in nearly two years, and a Federal Reserve report indicated that companies across America were concerned about the impact of tariffs and widespread labour shortages.

      We make a lot of local stuff; so to get rid of Skippy we have our own Peanut butter, and on and on and on.

      Right now, for the first in my life, supermarket shelves have so few US products that you'd have to search for them.

      The United States is the best it has been in the last 50 years. The tide has turned from the apologetic Obama to the America first president Donald Trump.

      The countries around the world shouldn't ask what can America do for us, but what we can do for America. And before president Trump the answer was we do nothing for America.

      And if today America is destroyed, what would you call the last several decades?

      All indications tell us America is on a path that hurts us down the road. How do you condemn the European Trade Union in the hopes it disolves then condemn NATO an alternative plan that protects them. If you destroy NATO then they will unite to protect themselves with out America. Nothing Trump does has any real plan or real objective unless the goal is chaos. Tarrifs are nothing but taxes on Americans unless American replace the products. After his tax cuts for the rich we are running historic deficits and maybe his tarrifs are his knew means of making more money to pay off the deficit? I doubt it but the examples of no plan or strategy our numerous. Fighting with China on Trade would have been fine if he did not decide to fight everyone on trade. The result is they may in time decide to ignore us all together. People forget that two world wars were fought mostly on the grounds of free trade as the underlying problem. America would have never fought either one of those wars if they did not believe it would open America up to free trade and expand our economy.

      If you were able to travel to other countries; say in 2016 and again today you would be in the position to assess the change in how a country is assessed by other countries. How people used to see America, and how it is seen today.

      I would try to give you an analogy but unaware of your understanding of world events; it might simply lead to arguments over semantics.

      Simply put, The image you may have of your country is not held by most of the countries of the world. The attribution of this change is your President, who, every time he opens his mouth confirms our assessment.

      Before Trump, America's position in the world was not one of ridicule. America will not easily regain respect.

      He is a laughing stock. If you were capable of investigating on your own, you would know that.

      As we both agree; America will stick with petrol cars and fossil fuels, the world will move to renewables.

      Petrol cars will have no market. Not that American cars have much market as even in America Toyota is the 2nd most popular, behind Honda. Neither is an American manufactured car.

      Japan is moving to electric, so will dump its petrol cars in the US.

      These are facts.

      The US and Saudi have been in bed for years. Note that despite most of your 9/11 bombers came from Saudi, there is not, nor ever was a travel ban.

      Your arguments suggest there is some 'alternative facts' which is not surprising. But reality is. America has lost its prestige, respect, and when it come to trade and aid, it is quickly and easily being replaced.

      Let me go line by line.

      Let's start with Trade. You know a number of companies are moving overseas. Trump even said it so you know it's true, right? Trump also said there would be a 12 Billion dollar pool for those who are suffering losses due to China's refusal to buy their products. That isn't a 'will effect'... right? That happened. That is real. You can check Trump's tweets.

      This situation will become worse over time.

      We are agreed that America is NOT moving away from oil. That is what I posted. The rest of the world is. So to whom will America sell oil? Itself. That is obvious. And then, who will buy American products which use petrol? If other nations have gone to electric vehicles and renewable energy, that America will build cars for itself. This means, America will build less cars that use oil and will have to produce cars that do not.

      To compare Trump and how the world sees him is to compare Bozo the clown to Stephen Hawkings.

      As most Trump supporters, you never ever do any kind of research. You never listen to anything but Fox News, and where the rest of the world has the information, you refuse, because it would contradict the current beliefs of your Massa.

      Firstly, Trade. Many countries have cut their trade with the United States. This will effect the economy.

      Second, Respect. No one in the world respects Trump, save Duerete of the Philippines. The world respected Obama.

      Third, where the rest of the world is moving away from oil to renewables, America is condemning itself to oil. In twenty years the demand for oil will be less than half it is today. America will be forced to remain using fossil fuels, paying for them, where others will be using renewables and having their own electricity supply.

      Fourthly, the destruction of Social Security, Medicade, 'Obama' care will make life harder for the elderly and poor. There will be more homeless, more crime.

      No. It is not prospering. Rich are prospering. Not the average person. It is like going to Saudi Arabia and claiming everyone is rich.

      Trump realises his Trade War with China is a disaster. He'll talk to China, put his lying spin on it, and back down.

      China doesn't need America. I know you can't believe this, considering the kind of propaganda you swallow whole.

      China trades with 124 countries. The US... 75.

      In the 3rd World, everything comes from China. In 124 countries... China products fill the shelves. If you come to Jamaica, if you go to Kenya,

      As early as 2012 China surpassed America. Only your President doesn't know this.

      So tell us what was OK with America before Trump became president?

      -------------------------------

      You say

      "Reality is. One can say there are 5 Lights when there are 4 or that Trump had more people at his Inauguration than did Obama, when photos prove otherwise."

      B:

      This is the reality of what? Even if true it is of no consequence. In this world controlled by the media, how do you know reality?

      -------------------------------------

      The joke is that if Trump would not have been elected,

      B:

      If that is a joke, then the joke is on you, and that is something that didn't happen. First, you talk about reality then you go to a what if?

      ------------------------------------

      America would still hold centre stage.

      B:

      America has always held center stage, even during bad presidents. The difference is that today the United States is now actually holding a center stage that is significantly improved from anytime in the last several decades.

      And that is due to president Trump putting the US first, instead of Obama who went around the world apologizing for the US.

      ---------------------------------------

      Now it doesn't. One can sit in California and think that America is the centre of the world, but those of us in the rest of the world have been quietly slipping away.

      B:

      Your paragraph beginning with "Now it doesn't " has nothing to do with explaining that, and it doesn't even mention the US, just CA. Why is the US not the center of the world because of president Donald Trump. Can you give some examples?

      ------------------------------------

      A simple glance ... once there were shelves of U.S. products, Campbell's Heinz, Kraft, now? The are crammed and gaining dust on one tiny shelf. Many will be removed as expired because no one is buying American goods when they don't have to.

      B:

      You are going to blame that on president Trump. Did this just happen in less than 2 years of his presidency?

      Buying American goods has changed since Trump became president and got us out of those bad Obama and Bush deals.

      -----------------------------------

      And that is reality from Kinshasa to Kingston.

      B:

      That is not reality is activism, and wishful thinking.

      The word "destroyed" is past tense.

      Not a single thought in this article.

      It didn't even live up to its title.

      Where are the necessary references and details that would make this article more than what it turned out.

      An anti Trump, Hillary Clinton monologue.

      This article is just a rant, because it lacks any facts.
