Trump's arrogance rewards him with the respect he deserves.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement after the tabloid interview was published, saying Trump 

She needs to call her daddy the preacher man to get a refresher on some of the thou shalt nots.

Trump claimed...

Unlike Sanders, Trump's never believed in any of the 10. They're not applicable to those who've assumed divine rights like his excellency.

Emperor, are those mighty fine clothes you're wearing made in China?

As for Johnson, Trump said: "I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he's got what it takes." He added, "I think he is a great representative for your country."

An endorsement from Trump, in any normal setting this would be the kiss of death, but now a days, who knows.

You can either be a Trump supporter or a patriotic American. You cannot be both. Anyone who insults our allies who fought shoulder to shoulder with our soldiers is not a patriot. Anyone who cuddles our greatest enemies and does acts to appease them is not a patriot. If you support Trump, please take that American flag down. You don't deserve to fly it. 

Hey, people in England who made this blimp. You could make millions selling smaller versions of this to US folks in the USA.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London," he said.

Boo hoo. His motorcade was spotted passing through Camden, though

Apparently, if you wear a t-shirt with a picture of him and his paedophile pal, Jeffrey Epstein, that really gets to him.

“He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it—Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Aw, don’t stick your lower lip out and pull your smacked arse face just yet. We have lots of trash loving people in the UK. Many of them buy the paper you gave an interview to.

Don’t forget the racists who posted the dodgy videos you retweeted. They are in jail now. You should pop in. Your base will love it and it’ll show your caring side. Can’t lose.

Trump argued that Europe was "losing its culture" because of immigration 

Trump's paternal grandfather was an immigrant from Germany. His mother was an immigrant from Scotland.

What is it with this guy and his anti-immigrant rhetoric when he himself is a descendant of immigrants.

12 ( +16 / -4 )

To Londoners: Can we swap? You keep Trump, we'll take the blimp.

11 ( +14 / -3 )

What is it with this guy and his anti-immigrant rhetoric when he himself is a descendant of immigrants.

There is a debate to be had on immigration. What is required is honesty from all sides.

When someone is incapable of honesty on this issue and believes any crap he finds on the internet, his opinions must be judged accordingly. If he can keep this dishonest trash confined to his whooping boneheads at rallies, that would be better, but his steaming cesspit of a Twitter account can be read worldwide.

What is it with this guy and his anti-immigrant rhetoric when he himself is a descendant of immigrants.

Trump's appealing to his base, the shrinking and angry demographic, a minority of Americans he knows will lap up his every word while he and his .01% (i.e. the wealthy American ruling class) get richer. I despair for the USA.

This is a major problem on both sides right now. Trump supporters are obviously easily fooled, but calling them treasonous is a step too far. Most of them didn't have bad intentions, they just weren't intelligent enough to see just how bad electing him would be for their country. It's sad, but they aren't evil.

Except for those who elected him knowing how bad he'd be, in an attempt to create chaos and anarchy. Those ones are evil.

An interview with the "Sun" reaaaaaaaalllllllly, hahahahahahaha well suited for each other , both have limited intelligence. Sun news is the equivalent to Fox news in the US, and , owned by Murdoch, another one hungry power mad individual trying to influence the fate of the World, well , as he see's it. Murdoch, the Spencer family and other powerful corporate individuals have an agenda, and it looks like they're succeeding, problem is , how do we, the thinking people of the World , find, and elect those to represent the majority.

Trump told The Sun newspaper that he felt unwelcome in London because of protests

Poor petal. Trump - you are not welcome pretty much ANYWHERE in the world (except for perhaps Israel) because you are a sleazy, creepy grub.

"Trump's arrogance "

No, Trump's honesty and determination to set things right is why he was elected.

"Americans who blindly follow Trump"

That would be all those who support him, right, Pete? And we're deplorable, too, right?

dmc: "To Londoners: Can we swap? You keep Trump, we'll take the blimp."

Can we swap dmc for the blimp? Even thought the blimp would be immediately shot down if it ever made it to the U.S. nyuk nyuk

Actually you can, but I wonder if you know why?

Being an American gives you the right to say these things and do these things, they are protected as free-speech, like the Trump toilet brush. You don't have to like it, but it's their right as well.

You take those rights away, as you are suggesting here, and what do you end up with?

Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer!

“Trump's appealing to his base, the shrinking and angry demographic”

Given that everyday people come on here and rage against Trump, his enemies swear, yell, are violent, threaten, there were riots after he was elected, and some loser Englishmen are so angry they’re demonstrating and wasting money on a balloon, this comment is probably the funniest. Trump supporters and basically just laughing and trying not to get beat up.

Most of the comments here about Trump are ridiculous and not worth answering, because they’re so predictable - but this one was funny.

Angry? Deniro, Griffin, Mad Maxine Waters? It’s the raging, maniacal anti-Trump people who have not been able to calm down since they lost.

Now they’re going after a Supreme Court nomination because.....he used credit cards.

The blimp is a national embarrassment. Bad enough that the soccer team choked.

England would be better off practicing soccer, trying to stop knife and acid attacks, and doing something about unemployment.

If anything they should be asking Trump for advice.

Blacks, hispanics, across the board unemployment is down.

Take some chill pills losers.

Trump is correct about immigration and Europe. That goes against the pc leftist agenda that people mimic moronically, but it's the truth.

-8 ( +5 / -13 )

Well, Trump just stated the obvious.

And the number of protesters wasn’t what they hoped for. A few clown bashing pots and pans and some others flying a balloon to protest a President who is running his country much better than the leaders of their own little country.

Kind of pathetic really.

Trump just keeps winning even with 90% of the media against him.

-8 ( +6 / -14 )

Hey, the UK has free speech and freedom of expression still. They are free to protest as much as they want.

That's the spirit! First, demonize your opponents, the dehumanize them. I makes it easier when you start using violence against them.

Hmm, sounds exactly like fanatical "conservatives" in the US and the GOP majority actions against our DOJ and other federal institutions that enforce the law. The golden rule isn't handled well when on the receiving end of it apparently... "do as I say, not as I do..." hypocrisy.

Reminds me of this little nut:

My Mother and Father taught me from a early age the importance of respect.

My Grandparents would exhort I should always ‘mind my Ps and Qs’ …...

That inflatable 20-foot-tall carbuncle implies indifference by puerile demeaning crude humiliation, consequently embarrassing a nation, that once prided itself on the importance of dignity and good manners not discourteous ignominy.

However loathsome or detestable Donald Trump behaviour, his lack of etiquette, political or diplomatic niceties, Trump still holds the Office of The President of the United Sates of America.

Why insult the man, instead of challenging Trump with the so called Great British tradition and custom, form and style of robust debate?

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London," he said.

Trump is correct about immigration and Europe. That goes against the pc leftist agenda that people mimic moronically, but it's the truth.

The debate about immigration is a serious one. As I mentioned earlier, it requires honesty.

On one side you can find idiotic people who want to shut down debate by calling people racist. Disingenuous nonsense.

On the other you can find idiots who follow dodgy racist crap from actual racists. Boneheaded, dangerous nonsense.

The US president should not be in the second category. People who are happy to see him there are deplorables.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London," he said.

I love the blimp! One should show up outside every venue he visits world-wide. Dirty diapers would be a nice touch.

President Trump's mother failed to teach him about many things the rest of us learned in kindergarten. The things that make most people decent humans. For example, when visiting someone else's home, you should be kind and generous. Don't point out if the paint needs a touch up. European immigration needs to be solved by Europeans and with the countries all those people left. The USA isn't exactly a shining example of a great immigration solution.

Seems like most of the European leaders are thin-skinned as well. You know, I think the only people that will get off on is balloon are the leftist losers that are bored to death and don’t have really anything to do.

My point is that decent people should not be retweeting dodgy videos from known racists. If anyone disagrees with this, I’m sure we’d all be fascinated to know why this is is.

I care about my country, my people

British people care about idiots giving publicity to fringe racist groups in the UK. Trump can feed his base ignorant, poorly-researched crap and they clearly love this, but when this insanitary crap involves another country, it is a problem.

What is it with this guy and his anti-immigrant rhetoric when he himself is a descendant of immigrants.

President Trump isn't anti-immigrant. He is anti-illegal immigrant.

Very few Americans don't have some immigrant story in their family history.

His attempted policy to block visitors from middle eastern countries is flawed and I'm not happy about the extra security which obstructs freedom of travel for people unlikely to overstay their visas once inside the USA and become illegal immigrants.

You can either be a Trump supporter or a patriotic American. You cannot be both.

You've lost me there. I disagree. President Obama was a patriotic American, even if his policies harmed American small businesses. So was President Bush (both). President Trump is too. Standing up for what you believe if right, even if unpopular for some people is being Patriotic. Just ask MLK.

-10 ( +0 / -10 )

Poor petal. Trump - you are not welcome pretty much ANYWHERE in the world (except for perhaps Israel) because you are a sleazy, creepy grub.

Come on, guy. How difficult is it these days to generate demonstrations given the certainty that most media outlets will give coverage to anything anti-Trump?

Given the choice of Obama or Trump, it’s obvious why Israel would welcome Trump. Let me spell it out for you: Trump means that Israelis go on living.

They were free to do so. Wonder why they didn't?

Well, let’s see. Could be that the Democratic Party convention chose the right person in 2008: a person-of-color (though he lived culturally as a white male most of his life and discovered his blackness somewhat late) trumped a “progressive” white woman. What reporter or journalist who wanted to keep his job would attack the nation’s first black president in the often rabid manner Trump is attacked? Zero.

Trump, on the other hand, is an acceptable target for politically correct media: white, male, rich, perhaps not personally likeable, arrogant and (openly - unlike many other politicians of different parties) full of himself.

Or maybe ... Barach Obama was just a swell guy. Oops. Forgot. He’s from Chicago.

Trump is 100% for legal immigration.

I am constantly amazed by the number of deaf, dumb and blind Americans. Millions of them and they follow the worst US president in US history claiming he is winning? He was pushed into the Presidency by an interfering Russia so he didnt win that. The popular vote he didnt even win that. His wall is going nowhere so he didnt win on that. His popularity amongst US citizens and world citizens continues to plummet so no victory there. His summit with NK turns into a failure and his recent NATO meeting went nowhere. About the only place he might be winning is with his Masters in the Kremlin and he will find out in days if they feed him a doggie treat.

It is so great to be President No 45 where you surround yourself with yes men and women who blow warm air up your derriere telling you your awesome. When your term is over and your nothing but an Ex you will hit a wall thats going to knock you back to reality. You are hated and you did a terrible job. Words that will ring in your ears for the rest of your days. The English have a hard enough time ahead without you pouring petrol on the fire. Just go home.

Call me and millions of other Americans dumb blind Americans, this is OK with me. Should we think of one as most intelligent. For we millions of Americans Trump is winning, high employment, NATO will pay more.

Many cannot predict what Trump may do, and that gives him all the leverage in negotiations. Liberals and the press simply do not understand how this game is played- because it is not now played as it was in the past. America now has a strong president with millions of loyal American supporters. Trump is asking some countries in NATO to pay their share. Trumping is asking some countries to stop dumping in America and for fair trade.

Trump knows that you cannot win a boxing match by being a nice guy. His winnings are beginning to pay off as some are beginning to relent.

Other countries people shouldn’t have a high approval of our President. Everything he does should be putting the USA first, which means other countries and their citizens second. So they shouldn’t like him much.

Still, trump is (a) more popular in his own country than these leaders are in theirs and (b) Trump has nearly the same approval in the UK that May does.

Any opinion would be welcome. I’ve had zero takers up to now.

I can guarantee you that the Brexit voters don't despise him

How can you guarantee that when I already know two who voted to exit who despise Trump?

Come on, Stranger, you know I meant the majority of the Brexit voters, not every one of them. I know a dozen Brexit voters of whom only one doesn't like Trump.

Ahh the old 'read my words to mean whatever I think they should have said rather than what I actually said' tactic.

Ok, just start reading every one of my posts as shooting down everything you say without a doubt from no on, mmkay?

Trump inserted himself into the British politics by giving his opinions on how May is handling Brexit to a trash tabloid. Is that okay or does it just work one way? 

No, the Brits can do whatever they want, I could care less if they want to waste their time, can’t hurt or do anything to our President, so carry on.

Do you have an opinion on Trump retweeting dodgy videos from known racists based in the UK? This is part of the reason he is despised by many in the UK. 

Again, I don’t care about the U.K., I care about the US

Any opinion would be welcome. I’ve had zero takers up to now

Because it’s irrelevant and it’s the past.

I’m done with this topic. All I can say is it makes no sense for people in the UK to protest the US President. He has no authority over them and is not responsible for any of their government policies or decisions.

and that “giant balloon” was a total letdown.

Oh and yes, according to liberals, a person can self identify as any race they want. So yes you can convert to black or Asian by calling yourself such. Liberal rules and all.

So was Trump's NATO negotiation. No one agreed to spend any more and another Trump failure (like his racist Muslim ban)

Nope. It’s very relevant. It’s part of the reason why he is despised in the UK and this is part of the reason why people are protesting.

The evasion is comical. I’ve attacked jellyfish on the left in the past but this refusal to be honest is sickening.

Surely there’s a Trump supporter with a spine out there.

Maybe I’m being too optimistic.

But he gave publicity to a fringe racist group based in the UK.

This was big in the UK. Big enough for the prime minister of the UK to rebuke him.

Cue the inevitable response, "Same goes for the Brits about US matters." The difference being that at least some... "Brits" can manage to write comments that make sense and are not evasive, inflammatory or just semi-coherent gibberish.

Yep. But credit where it's due... there are actually quite a few Americans on here that are reasoned with their responses... maybe even one or two are Trump supporters. Not most though.

Caring and making comments are two entirely different things. I care about my family, I care about my people and country, I don’t care what happens outside of the US, but I will comment on it. Just for clarification.

Looks like the far-right and adherent bigots are having a bit of a meltdown. Some are even attacking British people with childish ad hom attacks, because of their diversity.

The UK has been a place of proud protest for hundreds of years. Literally fighting fascism on the streets in the 30s. All this stereotypical reserve and dignity nonsense is fine if you read Enid Blyton, but in the real world it's a bit different.

Nice views of central London here

It's really not different. You're here trying to voice your opinion. To have an opinion and want people to listen to you, you must care.

Yes, it is.

You're here trying to voice your opinion.

If I say, that pink dress doesn’t match your shoes being concerned about you making a fool out of yourself doesn’t mean, I care, I’m just letting you know as a friend...or acquaintance. An opinion is just that, a personal observation that you want to be known, but it doesn’t mean you care just because you want to express that point.

Again, Brits can do whatever they want and feel however they choose, it’s their country, good on them, but I’m not British, so it doesn’t mean anything to me. I worry about the liberal socialists fascists causing a slight heartburn in our coastal regions of the US

I suppose asking Trump supporters for their honest opinion on Trump retweeting dodgy racist videos is quite funny.

I was hoping to come across honest ones.

You can care with or without making comments. You can't make comments without caring. You can however make redundant and/ or irrelevant comments without caring.

If Khan had said how great his opinion of Trump was you'd be on here saying something entirely different.

It's interesting that some commentators here think those in the UK shouldn't exercise their right to protest. They are the same ones who think the protest is only about 500 people.

Glad to see RESISTANCE against that ill-mannered traitor. Trump is not worthy of respect because he doesn't give any nor does he know how to talk to or with people. He's a boorish sociopathic turd boy.

He should take a lesson from Melania. She has been out meeting Chelsea pensioners and school kids, she obviously read her brief and remembered it, and left a good impression with them all.

Criticism does not faze Donald Trump at all. He knows that asking NATO members, that are not paying their share- to do so. He knows telling unfair trading partners to stop dumping and have truly free trade is the right thing to do.

@Jimizo

what fringe racist groups are you referring to?

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Ahh, now I found them.

They seem to be anti-muslim

However, I don’t see any racist overtones there at all.

The veracity of the boy on crutches video has been called into question, I note

However, they are most likely a rather crude attempt to show and point the viewer to some rather more dire events such as the asassination attempts on Teresa May,the defilement of Buddhist statutes,the sexual harassment and rape of women in Sweden and Germany and maybe a reminder of 9-11 which was carried out by Muslims, as we all are aware.

Racism doesn’t seem to be the topic though.....

So how come he's always whining about people who are mean about him? Someone who really didn't care about criticism would never go on about "fake news" all the time.

Of course, it didn’t help that Trump arrived in England wearing a Croatian soccer jersey.

Well, Trump is most certainly not putting ALL American's first... only the rich ones. He's "America first" if you're wealthy. Not so much if you're making under the middle end of a 6 figure income. If you're not making enough, you'll be priced right out of life these days.
