    Now....before you get on the 'report' button, yes I know the link I am about to add is not accurately reflected in the Thread Title, but the fact is...the link covers many Australian domestic areas outside how Donald treats Australia....but relevantly, it does demonstrate that Donald is pissing off his mates, large.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11...ority-deficit-on-show-at-home-abroad/10565662

    On that very last sentence, they have that 100% correct. But...Morrison is a conservative PM leading a conservative (yet fragile) Government.

    Stop pissing on your mates, Donald.

    I am no fan of Morrison, but that does not justify you ignoring us, I tells ya.

    My wife and I spent about a month in Australia recently--we got back a little over two weeks ago--and Trump is about as popular as a Cassowary dropping in on a Queensland picnic. I used, "No, I'm a Canadian..." as an icebreaker given North Americans pretty much sound the same to Aussies. (I am a naturalized Canadian born and raised in the USA). Then I followed, "So, what do you think of Trump?" We got an earfull of Aussie opinion along the lines of you-know-what.

    Geez, if Aussies and Canadians don't like Trump, who outside of America does?

    The Aussies just like most other countries were really pissed off when Trump became POTUS, they all got knocked down in the world power pecking order.

    Especially Chancellor Merkel of Germany, she was no longer the second most powerful person in the world.

    What on earth are you talking about? Australia, like Canada and Russia, has a treasure of raw materials and is a member of the G20. The only country Trump diminishes is this one.
    What does Merkel have to do with Australia?

    Obama was really popular with Russia and Putin.
    Obama always gave Putin what he wanted with nothing in exchange.

    Obama was very popular with Germany, France and the UK because they all moved up the pecking order as long as Obama was in the White House.

    Obama was really popular with MS-13.

    Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala loved Obama for allowing their losers and criminals to migrate to America.

    American gun and ammunition manufacturers had their best years in history while Obama was President.

    The drug cartels also loved the guns that Obama armed them with.

    Pretty sure the Chi-Coms miss Obama and so does the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and ISIS.

    Take a look... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining_in_Australia
    'Roos are raw material to attract tourists. Heck, even Australians are fascinated by something that hops.

    As we have no personal experience, Australians ONLY get the establishment view. If Americans had no personal experience and just took everything on what CNN said I'm sure you'd hate Trump as much as us.

    It's nothing special, everyone just loves a good yank bash.

    Nobody knows or cares that Obama was a virulent war hawk who routinely acted against the values of most Australians. They see him on repeats of Ellen and ABC News 24. That's all that matters.

    Orange man bad.

    I think Americans are the ones who get the more distorted, propagandized view of Trump. Canadians don't like Trump and most of them have full access to all the U.S. networks (CNN, Fox, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc.).
    You don't see and hear as much of that assh*le as Canadians do.
    Canadians still like Obama even though they get U.S. news. Obama could never get elected in Canada pushing U.S. policies. Canadians, thus, like him the context of U.S. politics. Example: Obama was still struggling with same-sex marriage when it was well-established law in Canada.
    Most Americans are beginning to so conclude.

    No, it was regarding world affairs, not just their country.
    This is too cryptic. Are you asking me if I care about what happens to this country? Do you?
