Theresa May will recommend Donald Trump bypass London when he tours the United Kingdom next month in an effort to evade turbulent demonstrations and it’s surmised the Prime Minister is to grant the US President the opportunity of a meeting at Chequers, her country retreat, rather than visiting Number 10.
And it’s believed officials have further suggested President Trump has tea with the Queen at Windsor Palace rather than Buckingham Palace and a visit to his hero Winston Churchill’s birthplace, Blenheim Palace, in Oxfordshire is further believed to be on the schedule for the three-day visit in July.
Although apparently, Whitehall has made it pretty apparent that they would prefer that the President decides on Chequers.
Donald Trump was widely expected to make a working visit to the United Kingdom in February, to officially open the new US Embassy, but the tour was scrapped and while the President blamed the cancelled stay on his unhappiness with the location of the new Embassy building in Vauxhall, critics maintained he was worried about the tens of thousands that could line the streets in demonstration.
He hasn’t made himself an amiable man and the preponderance of Americans don’t appear to think so either.
A CNN/ORC poll determined that 59 percent of Americans had an adverse view of Donald Trump. Trump’s favorability ratings are better than they were throughout the 2016 election but they’re still historically low for a new President.
Only 42 percent of Americans support a positive opinion of him, while over 50 percent have an adverse opinion of the President.
People’s aversion to Donald Trump records way back before the 2016 election and even The Apprentice era. Before this election, Donald Trump was caricatured in pop culture for the greater part of two decades, from The Simpsons to SNL to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.
Whether it’s his hair, his propensity for excess, or his mode of speech, Donald Trump has always been an accessible scapegoat.
Why does everyone dislike Donald Trump?
He is droll, but he further exemplifies the worst of this country and even back in 1987, Trump’s fate appeared to present much promise. Trump’s triumphant takeover of the Wollman Rink’s improvement, an ice skating rink in the city of New York had long been neglected, which gained him scores of excellent publicity.
He had his visions of developing the biggest construction project in New York City history, a $4.5 billion complex he named Television City. His biography, The Art of the Deal, was number one on the New York Times blockbuster lists.
The mainstream media glorified Donald Trump for a short time back in the ’80s, something that seems difficult to believe now but the press of the day was responsible for moulding Trump’s image from real estate magnate to folk hero.
He’s the boy with a smile and a shine who looks like he’s peddling the Brooklyn Bridge, only it turns out he owns it.
However, the media’s love relationship with Donald Trump was short-lived. There was no sugar-coating Trump’s messy vendetta with New York City Mayor Ed Koch that ended up putting an unfortunate end to Television City. Or the myriad of Trump properties that neglected to return a profit. Or the extremely advertised split between Donald Trump and his wife, Ivana, due to his relationship with Marla Maples, which further blackened his image.
Like it or not, the Donald Trump name stands for a man who’s the master of wheeling and dealing, the king of excess.
Fast forward to 2017. No other competitor in the 2016 election, including Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, received more earned media than Donald Trump. His comments on the campaign trail alienated women, Hispanics, Muslims, African-Americans, and fellow Republicans.
Trump’s notorious aim to stretch the truth broke records at fact-checking organisations Politifact, the Washington Post‘s Fact Checker, and Factcheck.org and as such, Trump’s behaviour on the campaign trail has produced a new crop of Trump antagonists.
And many hate Donald Trump as a human being.
Americans are not goldfish and they will remember his contempt when he says something disparaging about impoverished nations populated by people who are not white and during an immigration conference with a bipartisan assembly of senators, Donald Trump described some nations populated by black and Latino people as shithole countries.
He asked, why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here? Donald Trump was pointing to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
The White House didn’t quite deny it, although Donald Trump kind of denied it on Twitter. However, it’s obvious that Donald Trump said something that can only be interpreted as discriminatory about these countries.
He raised his political profile by declaring President Barack Obama wasn’t born in America, he proclaimed his presidential campaign by calling Mexicans rapists and murderers, and he has continued to defame nonwhite people since joining the White House.
He isn’t going to change, and he’s ultranationalistic, as the leader of the Republican Party, which is further making it difficult for Congress to figure out a compromise to protect the 690,000 people in the United States in danger of losing their DACA protections.
He stated that the United States shouldn’t be allowing more Haitians, and it should alternatively be bringing more Scandinavian people into the country. He sounds like a mini Hitler! Dye his hair put a moustache on him and hey presto…
Donald Trump then proposed that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, and apparently also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he thought that they benefitted the United States economically.
The president singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that immigrants from that country must be left out of any deal because they didn’t need more Haitians and that they should take them out.
Once that news was released, the White House didn’t actually reject it. They sought to switch the subject, asserting that Donald Trump was truly focused on America, not foreign countries.
Even if he did call other countries shitholes, the assumption was, this is simply a part of Trump’s America First philosophy and certain Washington lawmakers prefer to support foreign countries, but President Trump will always support the American people as long as it’s making money.
Staffers inside the White House aren’t that concerned about Trump’s shithole remark, with some prophesying it will resonate with his support, not antagonise it, much like his aggression on NFL professionals who kneel during the national anthem.
Donald Trump was kind of disputing that he had made the shithole remark and Donald Trump tweeted that “the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough but this was not the language used.”
Donald Trump stated that he never said anything disparaging about Haitians other than Haiti is, clearly, a really impoverished and troubled country and that he never said: “take them out,” and that he had an amazing relationship with Haitians.
Donald Trump said things which were hate-filled, offensive, and discriminatory and what he said was unacceptable and just because a country is poverty-stricken, which is in itself deplorable, it’s a sickening thing for Donald Trump to say about another country and he should have more regard for human life.
It actually isn’t a secret how Donald Trump feels about people who aren’t white, particularly brown people who don’t live in America and he hawked a racist conspiracy theory that the first African-American president wasn’t really born in the United States. He’s actually a truly stupid person when you think about it.
During a separate White House meeting, Donald Trump had stated that Haitians all have AIDS and that people from Nigeria would never go back to their huts if they came to the United States.
The president announced he would eventually stop the DACA program, putting protections for 690,000 people who came to the United States as kids in danger. He finally succeeded in banning people from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
And he stopped protections for 260,000 El Salvadoran immigrants who escaped to America following a disastrous.
So in the process of reminding us yet again precisely who he is, the president is also toying with the lives of hundreds of thousands of people who have lived in the United States for years. That’s why this matters.
