Declining Influence of America's Republic under Trump

If an 11-percent dip in tourism to the United States(US) since the stewardship of Donald Trump is not sufficient to demonstrate a decline in the influence of the Republic, then any doubt to the falling was rebutted this weekend by the European confession and affirmation that the continent could no longer rely on the US under Trump, as it has traditionally done in the past.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has emerged as the new leader of the free world in light of doubts about the new White House occupant, confirmed to a political rally in Germany that: "The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over." The German leader told the Munich crowd: "We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands."

Last week at a summit of world leaders in Sicily, Italy, Trump, unlike his other counterparts of the G-7 nations, failed to reaffirmed a commitment to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. While Japan, Germany, France, Canada, Italy and Britain reaffirmed the accord to reduce greenhouse emissions, Trump didn't saying he would give an answer this week. 

Trump's attitude to and around other world leaders, his erroneous display of sound intelligence and education, including his error on geography and manners, his stated doubts about NATO as well as the European Union(EU), amount to his increasing isolation from the world's free nations. Moreover, his stated assumption that global warming is a "hoax", plus his non action on the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, amount to a declining influence of the Republic of the United States on the world stage.
