I have been thinking (yes, yes, I know that’s a dangerous thing and trust me, I keep the fire extinguisher close at hand) and I have an idea for a little project that I’d like to run by you.
We know the damage, at least some of it, that Trump and his irresponsible foreign ‘policies’ have done to our reputation, our image abroad from the view of foreign news media and statements by leaders of nations. But I would like to call on some of my blogging buddies from other nations to kick in their two cents worth as citizens of those nations.
I have blogging friends in Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, the Netherlands, India, Ghana, and Kenya, and I would really like their take on the United States now, with the government shut-down and the looming threat of a national ‘state of emergency’ that will give Trump autocratic powers.
So I’m calling on my friends outside the U.S. — would you be interested in writing a short guest post to be featured here, giving us your own view of the United States as it stands today, with an eye toward our immigration issues, environmental issues (the Paris Accord), the government shutdown, the recent 2018 elections, and any other issues you might like to mention or address? The more the merrier … I am genuinely interested in your take on this, and also how you think our recent behaviour has affected your own corner of the world.
I will be asking a few of you with whom I regularly correspond via email, but I want anyone and everyone who is interested to participate! C’mon guys, it’ll be fun! I only ask that you keep it relatively clean 😄 and preferably to no more than 1,200 words.
