Trump has created for himself a world view where
he sees himself as a leader - who makes deals.
He sees others either trying to make use of the US
or are unhappy about getting a worse deal because they
are not as powerful as the US. Controversy, conflicts
and criticism (by losers) are part of his take on the
world. Everything that the US used to stand is now
being slowly eroded. However Europe and Asian powers are
now negotiating without Washington. Trust that people used
to have in the US both in the country and internationally
is disappearing. Sad state of affairs. And things do
have to change.

Here's the way it works in the mind of the average SJW/anti-Trumpite...

Recent poll found 47% of voters believe race relations are bad since Trumpís election.

OMG this is a disaster. However will the US survive. Trump is just the worst president ever.

Same poll in 2016 found that 60% of voters believe race relations are worse since Obamaís election.

SJW reaction - nothing to see here. Move along. Isn't the Obamessiah just wonderful.

T'was always thus.

mhaze,
Although you are correct that Yuyutsu's wrong, your map is not evidence of this as he was referring to routers not root domain name servers. There are a lot more of the former (so it's even less dependent on the USA) but they can be targets for hackers, and they certainly have been in the past.

Dear Mhaze,

There is a difference between DNS servers and IP-level routers.

DNS servers convert web-names (e.g. "forum.onlineopion.com.au") into 32-bit IP addresses. DNS servers are indeed present around the globe and not only that, they can easily be replaced by our ISPs (and even by individual users). Alternately, users may supply the IP addresses directly.

Directing IP addresses into physical network channels that end up at the desired server, however, is done by CISCO routers. The top-level CISCO routers are located in the USA and the firmware of local CISCO routers is programmed to contact them - and even to replace itself from them as new versions emerge.

Belly,

The politics in America has become extremely divisive, (as it has in Aus) with the left drifting further left, and the conservatives consolidating their power.

Trump did not win so much as Hillary lost. Although she was supposedly extremely qualified, she carried a lot of baggage, and many Democrats could not stand her. If anything it should be a big wake up call to the elites that they are not born to rule.

After ww2 America spent vast amounts of money rebuilding most of the rest of the world including giving most countries far more favourable trading terms than were reciprocated. This has been a point of resentment especially as many countries have built up their economies at America's expense. While I don't agree with the way Trump has proceeded, he has certainly shaken the tree and put the world on notice that it will not be business as usual.

As others have pointed out, in spite of the controversies, Trump has certainly put more than a few runs on the board.
