Your opinion is irrelevant. Americans don't care about the UK or what the British think. As for this episode. Please keep it up. The fact that the president of the US did not bow before a monarch will help in the upcoming elections. Rejecting monarchy is pretty much what the country was founded upon. I can't wait to see the Democrats running on a platform of submitting to the UK monarch. Fact is, we don't need you. Go play with the Germans.

Upset are we? if it was not for the British, Germans and other Europeans where would all you sons of immigrants be?:cheesy:

Eisenhower met her in 1957. She also met Harry Truman but she was not yet queen at the time.

Oh, my. It seems no bow is required.  "There are no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting The Queen or a member of the Royal Family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms."

 

From the horse's mouth, so to speak.

Well I thought that did look rather clumsy but not as bad as what he apparently said to the Sun Newspaper about   Theresa May and Brexit and that Boris Johnson would make a good prime minister.

I do not expect my president to defer to the queen of some second rate power any more than I would expect him to bow and scrape before the king of Lesotho or the Zulus.

If the truth be known, I'm sure he was excited in meeting her than the other way around.

 

Rumor has it she was most annoyed as she had to watch the latest episode of Coronation street on catch up  due to the meeting clash.

I'm not much into monarchies or similar old fashioned outdated stuff, but Trump disrespect a 92 old Lady by waiting for him for 15 minutes and leaving her behind when walking the parade. He's just an uneducated stupid lad. 

Maybe he had to take a shit. It's not like English food is very good.

We only have one country.  And the people going off the deep end here are people like you and other British. Personally, my criticism is that Trump bothered to go to the UK at all. There are many, many more places that are more important for Americans to spend their time with.

What are you on about? Truth be known you are not American but are descendent from immigrants who murdered most of the true Americans.

Does it matter The British Royals are just show, very rich, but, never give advice, ideals or look towards helping the common folk. They stay silent and live special lives, and are only commercial property of the Government. Respect has to been earned and they give nothing. There are few Royal families in the world now who prove the respectthey deserve. Alas UK Royals have become nobodies, when was the last time they spoke to the people from the heart and put forward demands to the government for the needs of the people. What would happen if the Queen when on TV and ordered the government to increase cash to the NHS, or even offered to supplement NHS with the small change from their own vast piggy bank?
