In his speech withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, Donald Trump asked: “At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country?” The answer is simple: At the point when the United States elected a buffoon and a clown as president.
The laughter, however, quickly diminished when the con-artist-in-chief started down a road leading to the destruction of core American values. From a travel ban that one U.S. Appeals Court described as unconstitutionally “dripping with religious intolerance” to tweets calling a free press the “enemy of the American people,” Donald Trump’s words and actions have torn at the fabric of the U.S. Constitution.
Now Trump has turned his attention to global affairs, and the world cringes as the United States breaks its word to the world by joining Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries that are not a part of the Paris agreement.
No serious people are laughing now. Rather, they are shaking their heads in bewilderment at the reckless incompetence of the Trump administration.
