    trump singlehandedly is likely to destroy relationships with allies that when we needed them would follow us to hell, unconditionally, if asked. Leaders and leader countries bring others along with them, not push them down and step on them. his leadership is or rather the lack of it is in the toilet. Deplorable!!!

    This is the level of critical thinking America has achieved. Let's put two images side by side and declare that they are equivalent and therefore represent an answer to a complex question. Welcome to the Wonderful World of Trump.

    Over my head? Once again, you misread the post.....or rather, engaged in wishful thinking. I was simply remarking on the silliness of posting two unrelated images and expecting that some conclusion can be reached by observing them together.....like a young Castro and Trudeau...and a painting of a sitting Washington and a photo of trump.....naturally with no explanation, theory, or reason for the juxtaposition. Of course, it's much easier than articulating a defense of the trump administration's policies.

    The Whiney self righteous 'G6' needed to be taken by the ear and towed into a reality check. The outlandish 610 billion US Military has been far less effective under the control of weaker presidents who were subservient to other world leaders. time to shake them down on trade and other advantages they are taking to provide faux utopian domestic pictures with saved bucks for social programs while the USA picks up the balance. what was Obama saying about small business 'they didn't get there by themselves, well the G6 dont have successful economics without American Security.
