    Apocalypse now?' What Europe's media thought of the Trump speech


    Quite a contrast with Canadians chanting "four more years" to Obama, eh?

    But, then, we're Americans. What do we care what the rest of the world thinks, right? Right????

    Interesting that the citizens are as unhappy with the government's there as the citizens here are with ours. 70% say we are going in the wrong direction.

    You'll understand if I'm unconcerned with the media's views.

    You are concerned when they post the truth about Trump, and it isn't good for the country. Then too, you aren't concerned about that either.

    The Guardian is so left wing I read it more for amusement and rarely believe what it says when it focuses on radical socialism. They tend to scaremonger and exaggerate, while the Telegraph is more Conservative.

    People here just don't take him too seriously and he makes headlines here when he isn't politically correct which is then followed by a reporter interviewing his supporters. It is met with derision in most reports with reporters trying to remain neutral.

    People here do, unfortunately, take him seriously and just might wind up electing him president.

    I don't really understand how Donald Trump's speech could paint a 'dark and terrifying' portrait of America, as the reporter in the Telegraph said. These reports sound like fear mongering. What exactly are they afraid of? (I'm not trying to be sarcastic, I promise :) )

    It's the only defense for hrc's refusal to acknowledge the threat from islam.

    The reports are not fear mongering. The speech was fear mongering.

    They can say what they will. It isn't like they have a vote. We are the ones that are majorly screwed if Trump gets elected anyway. I don't care if Europe wants to cry about it.

    At the end of the day the people of Europe do not elect the President of the United States...the American people do. I don't think the average voter gives a damn what a British paper says on the matter.

    Yes. . .and noticed that the "GOVERNMENT" we are so unhappy with has been all Republican (except for the POTUS until recently, of course) for the last 6 years! So. . .who do you think the people are unhappy with?

    Well they replaced democrats with conservatives in 1000+ elected offices up and down the government food chain, answer is obvious.

    That was in November. . .wait until November 2018. Although, with the gerrymandering. . . the Republican's anti-democratic tricks will take time to stop being harmful!

    They said the same thing in 2010, 2012 and 2014. The body count of lost seats grows and grows

    And yet it's just those people who are good news for the economy (the whole economy not just the .01%ers BO served). Nothing wrong with voting your pocketbook.
