This guy either was just being someone who couldn't think of anything else better to do or someone who believed he could get away with a dumb practical joke like this.

The problem with "Make America Great Again"---is that America had never lost its "greatness."

I was hearing before Trump that America wasn't what it used to be. Was slipping, falling behind and so on. I believe outsourcing and the rustbelt was part of that.

There's always SOMEBODY downing America.

Even in the 1960s, there were people saying America was "going down the drain." (Because of "all those hippies")

In reality, despite our problems, I find that we are still a great country, and that we didn't need somebody to say that he would "make it great again."

I've been to quite a few places. I would place the United States at least in the Top 3. In some ways, it's definitely Number One.

The UK and the US both have great scenery; they're just DIFFERENT, rather than one being better than the other as far as scenery is concerned.

It's very difficult to get the same quality hotel rooms in most countries than what occurs in the United States. In France, a "3 star hotel," to me, is more like "1 1/2 stars" within a United States context.

By the way, I like many countries. Some of which I've been too---but others (like Russia) I've never been to. One thing about Russia that's really excellent: they have summer homes for even relatively poor people. We in the US have to spend a fortune for them.

I agree with Kortie. America is great. Not perfect, but great. There have always been complaints, scandals and issues to resolve. Check the history books.
