Quote:
Why should America care about its global perception?" David Reibstein and Suneal Bedi ask rhetorically. "Because it matters to the economy of the country. … Just as brands of products and companies contribute to their companies' economic well-being, the same holds for countries."

Not surprisingly, Trump has the highest global disapproval rating, 58 percent, among both political and corporate leaders; he even outpaces his hero, Russian President Vladimir Putin (44 percent disapproval). So he can take comfort in being number one in something. (Not surprisingly, Trump has the lowest approval rating of political and corporate leaders tested at 25 percent; Putin scores 34 percent approval while the most popular figure is Google's Eric Schmidt, with 65 percent.)

This should actually be very worrying for Americans, sadly its something many Trump supporters almost take pride in. They think Trump is hated internationally because he's putting 'America First'.

But no, its more that the US has lost it's "street cred" internationally for a long time now, I first felt it with Bush but under Trump its ten fold.

Basically Trump isn't taken seriously internationally anymore, deals with him are not worth the paper they're written on, nobody cares what he says in a meeting because he doesn't seem to grasp very basic ideas and if you get his name on an agreement or deal he could easily withdraw on a whim.

This idea of the US flipflopping to extremes is really damaging, even the next Dem president will find it hard to make deals and treaties and agreements. Everyone knows theres a powerful right wing clamouring now to tear them up in 4 years.

The US is unstable right now and other countries are coming together and forming unions and partnerships without them.

If the US has lost "street cred" (I think that will happen when Russia and China no longer use US Dollars to purchase oil) this may be a relief.

It could be time for Superman to hang up the cape. Let the other NATO allies pay their fair share or pick up the slack for the US.

Not too bad a deal.

Funny how Republicans/Conservatives were pissed that Obama was allegedly failing to lead the world, any yet Republicans/Conservatives love Trump for refusing to be a world leader at all.

That was back when Republicans/Conservatives liked globalism.

But as soon as Obama embraced this Republicans/Conservative idea it turned into an evil thing that should be rejected.

Look, at this point, I'm just spamming the board and a Trump thread was an easy target.
