YES, we are. 100% of the people who live in America are Americans. Only the
troglodytes in the United States & some fools in Europe, chiefly from the U.K., seem not to understand this. America is the vast continental mass & related islands that's most of the land of the western hemisphere. It's 42.5M sq. km. & has 1B+ people living in 35 countries & 20 principalities. We are EXTREMELY irked at being lumped in with those fools in the U.S., who seem to think they are the all-high & mighty.
You'll note that there never was, isn't & never will be any country named America. The U.S. constitution's preamble very clearly states what the name of that sad, evermore dysfunctional country's name is, but they seem incapable of reading.
There is no president of America. There's a president of the United States, of Mexico, & of many other countries. Same for army, navy, air force, coast guard, postal service, attorney general, etc.
A German is a German, but also a European. A Japanese is Japanese, but also an Asian. An Egyptian is an Egyptian, but also an African, etc.
Doesn't matter how many stupid analingists T.D. this, truth is truth, fact is fact, & that's an end on it. Read it, weep, & eat feces & bark at the moon.

Despite whatever pedantic idiots say, the adjective "American" has been used to refer to people and things associated with the United States for centuries. Native speakers of English don't use the adjective "American" to refer to people and things from the New World. That's why we have adjectives like "North American" and "South American." Look up the word "American" in a dictionary and you'll see plainly and simply that it's used to refer to people and things from or associated with the USA. Usage dictates semantic meaning. The United States has laid claim to the word whether people from elsewhere like it or not. People from all over the English speaking world use "America" to refer to the US and "Americans" to refer to her citizens - including the British who invented the language and set the standard for its use. I've never heard anyone besides a few very ego bruised Brazilians or Canadians try to use the terms any other way. Anyone with a brain just accepts that Americans are from the US and moves on with their day.

American's might think so, but that is because most have no clue where Canada is and think we are an American extension like Hawaii and Alaska.

No! Well, we shouldn't be, but, some people seem to, especially if they haven't talked to a Canadian about it!
As far as Canadians are concerned, the term "American" applies ONLY to citizens of the United States of America.
We are North Americans, but, that is an entirely different thing.
