Factbox: Trump attacks British ambassador - is U.S.-UK relationship still special?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I think the Special Relationship is on its last legs. Ironically, it is being propped up by Boomers such as Trump who still hold sentimental feelings for the United Kingdom because of the propaganda that was still prevalent during their youth. Republicans under the age of 50 tend to view the British Government with the same distaste they do the French and Germans. I don't think Americans have any problem with the British people per se, but at least on the Republican side, once Trump's generation dies off there will be no "special relationship". Younger conservatives see Hungary, Romania, Japan, and the entire Slavic World as better partners than the Brits. 

 

I mean, just look at the Tommy Robinson situation. Here is a guy who enjoys pretty much universal support among the American Right and he's contemplating asking for political asylum from an allegedly Center-Right British Government. If that doesn't highlight how out of whack the countries have gotten politically I don't know what does.

Better than that. He said he doesnt know him then says hes a pompous fool.

 

Looks like the ambassador was correct in his description about Trump.

 

The real fun starts when trump is out of office. Then people will feel free to say what they really think. Will be fun times.

Can't wait until after Brexit when the UK is in need of new trade partners and is looking for a new trade deal with Trump. Good luck with that!

It’s no coincidence this memo was leaked at a time of the changing of the (remainer) guard at No10. They are trying their hardest to make sure the next (pro Brexit) PM will fail.

I hope not. I've known many Brits that I've liked, even admired, but their political system and culture is about as low as it gets. Not what you could call an egalitarian culture by any means. It's chief industries are money laundering, tax avoidance and dodgy investments sold on commission. It's circling the drain IMO.

So in other words Trump's hurt feelings are more important then minor matters like trade with the world's 5th or 6 largest economy. Trump truly gets the supporters he deserves.
