    "The governments of the G7 are America’s closest partners and allies. But from Canada, Trump has arrived in Singapore to meet North Korea’s Kim Jung Un. It is a good guess that he will show himself much more respectful and conciliatory to this dictatorial adversary than to America’s democratic friends—by now, that’s a familiar pattern of Trump behavior."

    "Trump is recovering from two weeks of criticism that he went soft on the Chinese tech giant ZTE. The president’s opponents suggested that his decision had been swayed by a state-owned Chinese company’s $500 million investment in an Indonesian project that had licensed Trump’s name."

    "Rule-of-law democracies cannot deliver the emoluments Trump collects from more authoritarian regimes. They cannot expedite Ivanka Trump’s trademarks to gain favor. They don’t book their national-day celebrations in Washington’s Trump International Hotel."

    If you had any doubt why Trump disses America's traditional allies in favor of the world's dictators the answer is simple, it is all about how it benefits him and the Trump name. What he can "deal" with an authoritarian government is a whole lot greater than having to negotiate with a democracy whose Government is answerable to its' citizens

    Plain an simple, all the "making America greater" and the "America first" is all rhetoric, play the tough guy to appease the base with those you can't benefit off of while getting all you can from the others

    It is obvious that Trump prefers to associate with people with whom he admires: Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un.

    He sees the heads of state of democracy as weak.

    It's a new era.

    Wow, to call the EU a 'democracy' is hilarious. Especially when they are trying to pass a law against memes by bureaucratic oligarchy to kill the internet.

    How many times do I have to explain it. Trump is canceling the disastrous NAFTA that ****** Clinton signed. If Canada and the US agree to dump NAFTA, there is NO NAFTA. Mexico will be the odd man out. When Canada decides to co-operate, their excessive tariffs go away. That just leaves Mexico with the excessive tariffs, if they co-operate by controlling their side of the bo

    Not sure what you "think" you are explaining but this post is filled with nonsense. Trump is simply creating a crisis to fix with allies.

    I figured an expert like you would know.

    Why does Putin own Trump? I don't get it... it doesn't make sense.

    You're providing evidence that isn't true.

    Perhaps the first stop is admitting there is a problem......
