The Guardian has been doing news since 1821. They do it well. They’ve been covering America since shortly after our two countries signed their last cease-fire.

America is a great nation with the potential to lead and inspire, as we have for the past seven years. The world knows it, and the world responds in kind. That’s why things like Iran Nuclear Accords are not only signed but complied with far ahead of schedule.

The world respects us and they respect the office, which is bigger than any one man. Donald Trump would make it about one man, which would destroy its integrity, possibly forever.
Watch the stern warning from our friends overseas. It’s no joke; they’re worried:
