But to your question - what I meant was that Trump is a disaster in terms of the US "brand".
He is systematically alienating our democratic allies and cozying up to violent autocrats like Putin and Duterte.
He is also shrinking our presence on the world stage, and China is happily filling the void.
Don't even get me started on his tweeting...
and now... back in the toilet again and down the drain. Probably lower than at any point in history. And as the US becomes less relevant other countries, as mentioned, have been stepping in to fill the void. Notably Germany, China, and Russia. Effects on the economy remain to be seen. It took Bush 7 years to turn the Clinton boom into global recession.
It will be interesting to see which way this goes next year
I did visit the Astrid Lindgren museum... are you perhaps confusing super powered ginger girls with rapey jihadist vehicle arsonists? Anyway that UN projection you read about I'm sure was reported on a in a very reputable new source, sounds perfectly believable. Maybe I'll plan another trip there in 2030, should be cheaper at that point if they have somehow regressed backward through the Industrial Revolution.
The article you link to is fair, even-handed, and grounded in fact. It doesn't report anything that I wasn't already aware of. It talks about recent waves of immigration and some predictable problems the country has had with integrating these immigrants. It mentions one riot that took place in an immigrant neighborhood. It also says nothing about Sweden becoming a 3rd world country, or neighborhoods so overrun by violent anarchists that police are afraid to enter. There is a quote from one person who said they didn't feel safe walking outside, followed by a comment from police that these feelings were unwarranted. You can't even see that what you wrote before (the comments seem to have since been deleted) was an overstatement?
Specifically to the one judging the help that europeans give to the poorest members of EU, as a greek i have to say that the problem became so big because of the measures you and germans imposed to us!!
Our wolrd has become such an ungly place full of war and misery.....fortunately we are going to extinct thanks to the envirenmental problem (that you americans basically created and even now being opposed to any solution)
Please Elon Musk ,Stephen Hawking and the others stop your projects dont save humanity we dont deserve it. We are only capable of stupidity and war.
