The current occupant of the White House, who wraps himself in the flag and espouses false patriotism at virtually every turn is, with actions like this, wrecking the special relationship, which is the greatest alliance for good the world has ever known. For someone who claims to be a patriot, his action relative to insulting our British brothers and sisters are, in fact, most unpatriotic. It disrespects the work of great men like Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower and Bernard Montgomery to solidify this alliance in the crucible or World War II. It disrespects the work of the entire World War II generation, who sacrificed much toil and treasure to support the evolution of this alliance (and those in Britain who did the same). But, more importantly, Trump's dismissive words disrespect the men and women, American and British, who together slugged across the muddy fields of France and Belgium, charged together across the North African deserts against Erwin Rommel, risked their lives together over the skies of Germany in their B-17 and Lancaster bombers, bled together on the beaches of Normandy, and charged together across the Rhine.
