1. The rest of the world’s image of Americans
In the years following Bush’s term, it was okay to be American again. Overseas, calling yourself an American often elicited a smile, thumbs up, or an “O-bah-ma!” Tell a foreigner you’re from the United States now and the first thing they want to talk about is Donald Trump. Everyone has heard of him and everyone has an opinion. From China to Colombia, all eyes are on the U.S. election.
