From my observations Obama wasn't particularly friendly towards the UK, and last year tried to influence the EU referendum.

Now at the end of his term he is trying to influence Germany's next election by supporting Angela Merkel. I think during his term the US special relationship has been with Germany, not the UK.

Barack Obama's final call as president went to Angela Merkel | World | News | Daily Express

We may not like the idea of Trump being in command, but hopefully he will be a better friend than Obama.

If I'd been Obama, my last call to a world leader would have been to Merkel too. She has become a shining beacon of liberal democracy in a darkening world.

I didnt agree with Obama and his input on Brexit, but on the whole he was fabulous, His approval rating was very high and it would have been higher if the Republicans hadnt said no to everything, all they did was hurt this country.

You need to research Trump and that Golf course in Scotland and see how he treated the Scots who lived there, they did a TV show about it too, he is arrogant to say the least.

The documentary is called "You've been trumped" available on You Tube.

This is going to be a long four years. It's a nightmare. I simply cannot believe that this nutcase is the president. He is eligible for British citizenship, as his mother was from Scotland. Can we please send him back to Scotland to tend to his so-called golf course!

We have enough golf courses - and enough crazy people here in Scotland already. Leave him where he is. The Constitution is designed to prevent presidents becoming dictators.

I am half Scottish and have several family members living there, including my sister. Scot 47 is correct - they don't want him there!
Totally agree with you Mallory - he is a total nutcase. I actually think he is mentally ill, but my daughter says he is just a narcissist. I cannot believe he got elected. It is embarrassing for the United States to have someone like him as their president. He is going to ruin this country. That said - I don't believe he will last the 4 years - something will happen and he will end up getting impeached. I am not a Republican - but I am very proud of our governor here in Ohio (John Kaisch). He saw through him right from the start and after he withdrew from the race refused to endorse him and refused to attend the RNC here in Cleveland last July. More republicans need to stand up to him. The whole situation is ridiculous. BTW, there is a whole other thread about Trump in the "Take It Outside" section of BE forum.

If Trump is impeached, Mike Pence becomes Potus. I don't see that as much of an improvement.
