That should be anti-Trump not anti- American. Bigly difference.

I am beginning to think the same thing. I think May has been told by the loathsome Timothy that being seen to be hostile to Trump will make her popular. This is the same Timothy whose advice lead to her losing her parliamentary majority at the last election.

I know it was a great disappointment to you, but Trump was democratically elected by American citizens. He is an expression of what the people wanted and the liberal can't handle the fact.

Eastern Europe is already aligned with Trump. I believe the rest of the west is moving in that direction, some quicker than others.

Watch and learn.

Without wanting to derail the thread, Tory policy is all about pitching for the centre ground and losing the 'nasty' image. You can see all over the western democracies though that large blocks of voters are moving away from the centre as they lose faith in multiculti and want more socially conservative policies that respect western culture and protect borders.

If the election was conducted democratically, Trump wouldn't be the president. He lost the popular vote, but won the electoral college, which made him president.

The US president is not directly elected by the people, which is why the US is not an actual democracy-the nation is a constitutional republic. There is a difference.

Speaking to the whole "why isn't Trump going to the UK", could it be that multiple politicians and public officials in the UK made statements that Trump wouldn't be welcome?

I mean, it wouldn't be the first time that Americans went somewhere we weren't welcome in Europe. But it would be one of those rare times that we weren't doing so by wading ashore from landing craft and ramming multiple magazines worth of "FREEEEEEEDOM" up said European country's arse.

Naturally the liberals are busy whining. But considering how stupidly unpopular he is in Britain, at least among the anointed political and media castes, it looks more like he's being polite. Oh, that's right, liberals don't understand manners, they don't have any. Sorry, my bad.

I would say the answer is 'because he doesn't want to'.

There's a whole world out there, and the UK has its hands full with leaving the EU, subduing the folks north of Hadrian's Wall, a Royal Navy that isn't at sea, and unsupportive votes at the UN.

In a year or two when they need trade agreements to replace what they lost leaving the EU, they'll come to us...

You need to make Britian Great again, it isn't happening at the pace and direction the liberal shits are taking your once proud country.

I seem to remember the Brits not supporting the Trump from the bringing of the election campaign, bad move. Time to suck it up.

UK is still on knife's edge on leaving EU, Trump parading around would well be enough to tip the balance back to staying.

That sounds like a losers argument. Democracy delivered its result and reasons must be found for it being the 'wrong' result. It was the system, it was Russia, it was the lies etc. etc.
