I read this article on what the Brits supposedly think of Trump. I know there are lot Europeans on ATS. I would love to hear your comments on this article confirming if the criticisms and commentary on Trump hold any truth with the British people.

I think the commentary below may be to harsh of a criticism. I'm not sure. I think I am biased so it's really hard for me to judge if the commentary below is accurate. As a fellow New Jerseyan (exit 114), I am hoping for the best for Trump since he's the first president from New Jersey in my lifetime. Then again, he is from Exit 38!

Thoughts? Is the criticism too sharp?

To Brits, Trump Makes Dubya Look Smart


A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.

He has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

Tell us how you really feel.


It's not my writing. It was the British guy. I am just wondering British people agree with it. I actually like Trump's STRONG decisive leadership and the way he doesn't take any nonsense from anyone talking back to him.

No problem. I think it's just interesting to see what people outside the United States think of us. In case we ever need to be allies or something.

Another leftist screeching.

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Orange man bad!

It's actually kind of impressive, the ability to trigger someone all the way across the ocean.

I agree. Trump is the master at baiting people to show their true colors.

So, you're saying Trump isn't this man's cup of tea?

I do find it funny as a yank that parts of Europe are so fast to attack trump almost as if they themselves haven't had some real winners in the big boy/girl chair over the years.


As far as the UK, I could see the world turned into a ball of fire before we wouldn't stand side by side.

I'm not speaking for the Brits. I live in New Jersey. Trump's glorious home state!

In fairness, the British don't even elect their Prime Minister. They have no room to talk about American politics.

Well, we all must make compromises when it comes to the BIS Central Bank. I think the Europeans are pretty much back in charge since the low point after WWII.

I agree. And for myself, I do not pretend to be an authority on what the British people think in general. I think the article probably represents the general consensus which is what I was hoping to confirm with this thread. It's pretty late in London right now maybe some real Brits will comment tomorrow.

Good thing they didn't vote for him, huh?

Look into what he done to the people of Aberdeen.

Yeah, trump is not a popular guy round these parts, never really has been.



Now I could list off loads of stuff I dislike about Trump, but av done all that before.

What I would say I struggle with is the growing contempt some Americans have for the U.K. because we don’t like Trump. I have seen too many Trump supporters take it personally that we don’t like trump, as if we are attacking them personally. Me not liking Trump does not equate to not liking Americans or America in general.

He's an idiot. He used bullying tactics to acquire land for his resort. Getting paid was an issue for many of the contractors. The first time I've ever felt ashamed for America (home to some very good friends and family members) was when they elected the annoying orange...
