That is because he is self centered, prone to angry outbursts, throws allies under the bus and cares only about himself.

He is a low IQ moron who thinks he is forging a new era in American diplomacy with Putin, Kim, MBS and Ergodan but they are using him for their needs and in the process he is burning bridges with Americas historical allies.

Putin sees him as a useful idiot. A dupe. A rube.

In the latest clip, Assad and Putin joked that Trump should follow in the footsteps of Paul the Apostle and visit the Syrian capital of Damascus.

"If Trump arrives along this road [to Damascus], everything will become normal with him too," Assad said, according to a translation of the conversation posted by Axios.

Putin then joked about inviting Trump. After Assad responded that he was ready for a visit with such a changed version of Trump, Putin said, "I will tell him," as both men laughed.

I sure am glad the US is so well respected in the world now.

The UK Defense Secretary is correct. We can argue endlessly about whether that is a good or bad thing. But with Trump in office, it is a true statement.

That's pretty unfortunate for the UK as they are about to strike out on their own... Just saying - the UK is a case of cut your nose off to spite your face.

"grooming gangs" is its own topic in the uk independent.

but you get in more trouble tweeting about it on ------- than being a member of these gangs which have targeted thousands of white british girls. thankfully I'm not in brittanistan.

Nigel! Ian! Try to worry more about your own kids getting buggered by your imported diversity than whatever's going on with your special friends across the Atlantic!

I'd be more concerned about the Met designating area in London that it can no longer patrol. Tour books now list "no go" areas that tourists shouldn't go to.

Unfortunately, I'm a Yank that has to work in those areas and I now always carry a gun with me.

If they were really smart they would have stopped relying on us when we attacked Grenada for daring to hire Cubans to build an airstrip because Reagan needed a cover-up for his responsibility in the death of 240 Marines.

Republicl0wns are pigs.

you disgust me with your stupid.

Wow, so Liberals are getting their way and they STILL complain about it. He is saying that they can't rely on America to continue to be present in military conflicts around the world, doing EXACTLY what Liberals have been whining and crying about for years now, and the Libs STILL whine and cry????

It's so sad that Reps can be so in power in this country because Liberals are so weak. ironically, Dems have turned in to Glenn Beck now...whine and cry and get really mad about everything you can possibly think of, but offer no solutions or backbone to get solutions done. Thanks Dems for allowing the Reps to mishandle this country. Grow a backbone one day so we can reverse this trend.

Liberals have never complained about the US being a good ally with the UK. You've never heard liberals whining and crying about having a good relationship with the UK. What planet are you living on? Goodness, you'll make up anything just to blather on. Just like Trump.

Remember when Obama threatened the Brits with going to the back of the queque if they voted for Brexit? Good times.

Didn't read the article again?

He literally cites Trump getting into conflicts like Iraq/Iran as well. And the buddying up with dictators and Russia isn't helping. Do we mention giving away government secrets as well?

If you are too stupid/lazy to read the article or know what is going on, don't post. And for god's sake, don't vote.

People like you are how we got into these messes and have a $20 trillion national debt.
