  1. _Third World Status achievement unlocked!_

    • Here’s something Trump can claim over President Obama…getting banned from other countries!

      The term “Third World” was invented in the 1950s by the French scientist Alfred Sauvy. He understood it as an analogy to the “tiers état” (third Estate) before the French Revolution of 1789, a group of peasants and civics, some of whom were highly educated, highly productive and bore the entire tax burden alone, but who had no political say in the state.
      So, no. The USA rather stands for the opposite.

  2. Another trump accomplishment!

  3. Ha! Sounds like America isn’t great again! How come America isn’t great yet, Trump?

    • @Marcelo Serrano You wouldn’t know sarcasm if it hit you in the face with a sledgehammer, would you?

      @Tseleng Botlhole living next door to the sandbox bullies, I have never bought into their bluster. If nations had personalities, the USA has narcissistic personality disorder just like dear leader.

      @Jeremy Backup North Korea famine. You know it is bs, right? I rather believe what nk is saying than what trump is trying to preach. Period.

    The EU just erected a virtual wall that blocks Americans. Thank Conald Gump for this debacle

    • @Linda Sims Dear Linda, here too we have had plenty of examples of stupid public behaviour (crowds at beaches, raves etc) following lockdown relaxation, and for which we may soon be sorry. However the widespread failure to understand even simple public health advice (masks, distancing) by so many, and their hostility to such measures, led from the very top, is an absolute tragedy for all. If sympathy alone would help you, you have all of mine.

      Teaching trump how to build an effective wall that’s not made of steel

      @Dave Schultz at the time those deaths were happening, they didn’t have open borders did they! Europe’s recovered from the virus now though, as has Oceania & Asia (excluding West Asia). If NY goes further than just a 14 day quarantine with it’s state border closure, it might find itself with an exemption & able to travel there too

    • @Paul H
      it’s not bothering me I live in British Columbia Canada, we have had over 100,000 victims of covid in Canada and in BC we have had under 3000 cases and under 200 deaths with a population of 5 million so we are doing better then the rest of Canada and we are prepared for the 2nd phase we know what we have to do by getting flu vaccines in the fall so we won’t have any complications , I’m proud of the people in BC we seam to have a high volume of people with common sense that pay attention to experts and do as they suggest!

  5. I don’t blame them. The Trump Administration has too many mixed messages.

      @Crystal Giddens
      CDC data says you’re wrong on deaths and your Israeli professor is wrong on lockdowns. NZ eliminated the virus from its population by lockdown, testing and tracing. The current cases they have are arrivals from foreign countries that have travelled while infected. Americas failure to implement a comprehensive plan to fight the virus and support its population has lead to the debacle which puts it at the top of the worst performing countries with regards to Covid19 response. Is the professor against these proven measures due to him being involved in a Covid19 vaccine development and the more profitable it would be for them for the disease to remain widespread.

    • @Crystal Giddens Keep on dreaming.

    • @Crystal Giddens Sure it is. Get some help.

    • @Crystal Giddens it’s ignorant clowns like you and your bone spurs cult that’s killing innocent people

      One of Australia’s first outbreaks came from a group of American tourists. So we are also giving the US a pass until they get their act together.

  6. The EU doesn’t actually need to defend this decision. They just need to point at the fire that is the u.s. and say: “like…what do we do with this?”.

  7. Are we tired of winning yet Trump cultists?

  8. US is a basket case. EU wasn’t left with much choice

  9. Sooooo…is America “Great Again” yet?

    • Football Nerd | June 30, 2020 at 10:48 AM | Reply

      On Trumps website he is selling “make America great again” hats as well as “keep America great” hats.

      Even the hats tell you he has no clue what he’s doing!

    • @Football Nerd He may have had them made before 2020, for his re-election campaign. Given the current situation, how many Keep America Great hats will he be selling now? And I would like to know who bought them! Or it, can’t be more than one, can it?

    I don’t remember a travel ban being imposed on Americans under previous presidents 😂

    Remember when Europe imposed a travel ban on Americans under Obama? No? Neither do I 😂

    Trump doesn’t need a wall, they don’t want to come here!

    • “The U.S.?, why would I go to that shithole country?”

    • Horice Black | June 30, 2020 at 12:35 PM | Reply

      @Atilliator thanks to Trump. Some of us will actually make it great again when Trump is gone!

    • Tori Moore it’s only America that can put him there, he’s been selling America out since before he even got to the White House why and how has been allowed to get as far as he’s got I can’t believe that America once a very respected country has allowed this to happen and now he’s got his feet firmly under the White House table America is gonna have a very hard job getting rid of this clown he has been allowed to become America’s first dictator and no one has stepped in his way I would of thought that maybe someone in the Republican Party or the military has said enough is enough and took him out has a great threat to world peace the biggest threat since Hitler he’s the Sadamm Husain of the western world take care of yourself my best wishes to you from Stevie boy in Britain

      @Steve Dee thank you Dear Cousin! We will prevail, we are still a relatively young country, this is only a growing pain!

    Donald J. Trump – the US president that tried to gaslight a global pandemic (and failed miserably).

    So this is what Trump ment by we’d be sick of winning.

    • @S T As soon as the numbers went up in the US, people started to discuss the ban. Even my own mum asked why the ban wasn’t up yet! The media in Germany were rather reserved and only started to discuss the ban rather recently.

    • @Taminy I guess

    • @S T Almost no one watches CNN here, dipstick.😈

    • No he is not done yet more BS to come please stand by! With much love from Russia!

    • @S T – I’ve seen what you’ve written to some of the others on this thread,… I just want to say to you again – Our European countries as I said to you before rely heavily on scientific and medical data,… Media over here trails behind reporting on what the scientists, doctors and politicians say,… NOT the other way around…
      The scientific input in Europe is VALUED and ACTED ON, they are the driving force BECAUSE Our politicians VALUE their Knowledge and Input, which it seems is very different from America, over here we respect them, which you don’t seem to do in the US,… We do this because it’s only them that’s going to get us out of this mess…
      North and South America are deemed a risk to our public health in Europe,… We have self isolated for far greater periods than you have in the US, far greater, we have followed safe practices laid out by the scientists, doctors and politicians when we started to come out of lockdown,… we Listen to what our advisors tell us, because there is no hidden agenda the only agenda is to save lives, and get back to work when safe to do so… we wear our masks, social distance etc., because WE value the lives of our fellow men, and don’t want to risk others getting sick, never mind ourselves,… That is why the number of cases of this virus are significantly falling,… because we heed the advice of scientists, doctors and politicians,… over here we respect Knowledge and Academia, because those are the people on the front line fighting this, learning from this and helping us get through this…
      In the US it seems all the citizens are interested in is their own rights,… they don’t like being told what to do,… they think that the threat is overblown,… those not at risk say well I’m fine,… but it’s not about being fine yourself, it’s also about protecting others,… You have little respect for your scientists, doctors, and nurses, and for anyone highly educated in general,… the language between us may be similar, but our beliefs and values, and respect for our fellow man is chasms apart,…
      You come on here trying to tell us in Europe that our choice to stop Americans coming over here is driven by the media,… well I can assure you it is not,… and I resent you trying to tell us that you know better,… but then again that’s what Americans seem to do all the time anyway… Our decision is driven by the scientists, doctors, politicians and also by the people,…. Until you can value other peoples lives as much as you value your own then we don’t want you here… and until you can get your infection rates down, no one else in the world will want you going to their countries either…

  16. This is hilarious. Who would want us coming to their country when they look at the attitudes and all the animosity , Trump and his Trumptarian Cult Society Crusaders have shown the world in the last 3 yrs.

    😂😂 Well America wouldn’t listen.The world is sick of their attitude.

  18. American prestige is a myth. A joke of a country now.

    Trump will tweet something stupid to save face: I will ban Americans from going to Europe.

    I’m with the EU against our so called president.

    • And we Europeans are with every American that is against this insanity that has taken over the WH. But Trump is just the tip of the iceberg
