There is leadership and there is bullying. Wonder which Trump would count as?

Though the USA (not America, actually 2 continents, not countries) is the most powerful country, leadership is another thing. And i think most of Asia (where most people live) looks more towards China these days, although not always from choice.

I don't think Trump wants to lead. He doesn't act like he does.

China is the go to country on trade. It's leading there. On climate change, it now seems to be a joint European / Chinese lead. In the Middle East, it seems the Russians and Iran have gained considerable ground.

Even with North Korea, it seems the US was led to the party by the North Koreans. Hopefully that will be a good thing but I fear Trump is being played.

If was wanting counsel on dealing with the bad boy administration in Washington or international issues, Merkel and Macron seem the go to folks. They seem a cut above May who is more focused on domestic issues.

The US has taken quite a fall but some of that is cyclic. The rise of China isn't. If I was an American taxpayer, I might think some of this was good news.

I have rarely read so much utter rubbish in one sentence.

I have to agree with Joudon, Merkel is VERY focused on domestic issues at the moment, Macron's popularity is the lowest it's ever been and Theresa May is a complete moron, personally I'd be inclined to let Nigel Farage, Aaron Banks and Raheem Kassam deal with Donald Trump, they're already great friends but that's another story.
