America's waning clout

Two incidences recently, both disparate but symbolic of the allies defiance of the American edicts. The first was the Boeing disaster where all the world countries grounded their 737 MAX , despite the Trump administrations resistance to do so. America became one of the last countries to do so. More than anything it showed lack of confidence in the American government.

The second was 5G. Trump administration does not want Europeans to by 5G from Huawei but Spainish seem to be continuing with the company. In earlier years, it would have been considered unlikely but the Europeans have lost trust in Trump's America. His frequent outbursts against NATO have not gone unnoticed with the allies and China is much eager to oblige them. Spain may come around but the message is clear. EU will, as it should, look for alternative to US instead of putting blind faith across the pond.

While some may argue that the allies were taking advantages, Trump was fighting instead of coaxing the allies. His attitude has been brash ( remember the phone call with Australian PM and chiding of Trudeau) and that of a boss and not of an ally. It seemed that he was trying to run this world as a gang. Trump may be gone in a few years but the allies are not just worried about him but rather the brusque alliance of white supremacists, evangelical ( who can be bought for SC seats ) and right wing nut jobs which wants to rum America in a different way.

8 years of apologizing for America’s existence by Obama does have consequences.

That is what is called gaslighting. Trump was the one who incorrectly called for Boeing and you ended up blaming Obama. Typical trumptards.
