    Everywhere we have traveled - including very recently - we Americans have had NO PROBLEMS getting along with people in the country we visit.  We have been cautioned not to wear blatant American symbols and clothing - but on a trip to Poland a couple of years ago (and I speak Polish well), we passed a school group of Polish kids - most of whom were wearing YANKEES hats!  We were recently in Barcelona - and all was quiet - but lately, there have been huge crowds in the streets - and I do not speak Spanish or Catalan. I would not be comfortable in that atmosphere - but then, we loathe the idea of standing around in Time Square for 8 hours in the cold, to see the ball drop.  I speak some French - get along fine in Canada, although there are still Francophones who do NOT want anyone to speak French unless they are native - they say our pronunciation hurts their ears . . .  My husband speaks Italian in Italy, and his Spanish is decent - and we are polite, courteous, and do NOT get into political discussions abroad.  We just gush over the beauty of the host country, and the art and architecture, the cuisine, the music - the culture in general is why we GO!  My husband powerwalks the local track every day - and tells me about all the great people he meets, from all over.  They are mutually receptive to opinions - and of course, they are people who have chosen to live here in the US, at least for now.  Courtesy and patience will get you thru most situations.

    Because of someone who IS a group and whose last name rhymes with it.

    They used to get along, until D. Trump came to power. Thus he doesn't stop to mock, insult, bully and threat most of Europaen leaders and too, the Canadian one and more.

    On the other hand, he worships the dictators like: Putin ( Trump calls him a strong man), then Kim Jong ( Trump said about him: '' he is an honorable man '', he likes Erdogan too. Next: Bashar All Assad?
