I'm use to hearing about travel warnings to Mexico and other countries known for violence and unstable governments.
But, I have to admit I was shocked to read that another country put us on a tourist watch list! Chinese citizens are being told that there are "frequent" occurrences of robbery, theft, and gun violence in the USA, and to be wary.
The Chinese Embassy in Washington is also warning it's citizens that medical treatment in the U.S. is expensive, and to guard against the powers wielded by Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents.
It sounds like they're talking about a third world nation. A Banana Republic. Not America. But, it has got to this point, as relations with China continue to sour under the Trump regime's tariff policies.
I've quit saying "What's next with Donny?" because I know the answer is elusive when dealing with our demagogue in the Oval Office. Each low, is a new low. No one knows how far he'll go.
Certainly not the Chinese, who are taking advantage of Trump's isolationist policies, and assuming the mantle of the world's leader. The number one superpower with global influence. A spot America once held prior to the Trump apocalypse.
Now the world is aligning against the U.S. which is in a declining influence stage thanks to Trump's treatment of other world leaders, and the international treaties he's backed the U.S. out of.
The fact that China is issuing warnings about going to the land of the free, is proof we're in trouble and have lost all our moral authority.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
