  1. mexico being like “We’re going to build a wall and the United States will pay for it!”

  2. I thought It was funny at the beginning, I mean, seeing the US with that president was a joke.
    But now is sad. No one deserves to be put at risk like that and lose their lives because of the stubbornes of one single individual.
    You deserve better! Stay safe, please, take care of each other.

      Exactly. Its not even funny anymore

      As easy as it is to blame Trump, this is not solely his fault though he does have a significant share of the blame.

      Got to hold to account the media that downplayed this virus and acted like they knew better then the medical professionals.

      Those officials who ignored those warnings and opened up anyway.

      Those People who genuinely belive that being told to wear a face mask is a betrayal of their rights. They all had a hand in the surge coronavirus cases.

      No it’s never one person. As an individual Trump has only accomplished being a coward tax dodger who went bankrupt 7 times. It’s his father who bailed him out. He isn’t worth the 5 billion he says and if the banks called their loans he’d be at bankruptcy number 8.

    • Brad Canning | July 7, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      @Angelachan Lim No it’s not Trump or Biden. It’s Trump or a government that is run by a president who listens to experts and works to include ALL Americans, not divide them.

    • I know, beats me how Americans couldn’t see it themselves, that Trump was a fake, a con man out for himself, such a useless uneducated man.

  3. Can’t blame them when your own goverment is doing so bad

    • Yeah. Americans sealed their border to Europeans like myself when the pandemic kicked off over here. So don’t be surprised and don’t be annoyed when we do the same because of the disastrous handling in the US. The direction things are headed suggests that our border will remain closed to Americans for a very long time

    • Thats not funny | July 7, 2020 at 9:12 PM | Reply

      @Noah Bowie this is no time for travel anyways.

  4. This is USA’s “Chernobyl moment”: single catastrophe that exacerbated all the underlining systemic problems that were left unchecked.

  5. #45 – making America a 3rd-World country

  6. As has been said a million times before: “elect a clown, expect a circus”

    • @D M – Are you ok? Do you need a hug? I mean I wouldn’t touch you, but there must be someone, somewhere who would…?

    • lol. Hadnt’ heard that one

      Well summed up!

    • *This is not a circus, it’s a slaughter. Putin wins, America loses.*

      D M Plenty of older Americans are retiring in Mexico, where they get treated with more respect than the U.S.
      The criminal underworld in Mexico is made rich by cocaine buyers. Also by the so-called war on drugs.
      America needs to be more honest with itself about it’s drug use.

    tRump is now giving other countries ideas on how to keep the US out 😂😂

  8. Pretty soon Americans will want to flee to Mexico in order to be safe..the Ironie.

    This is what having a no-responsibility wannabe dictator for a pres will do to you.

    • Coronavirus is not Trumps fault. You want to put blame.
      The protesters
      The people at beaches
      People at restaurants
      Blame the CDC and WHO and Dr Fauci.

      @summermojo When you know a storm is coming, you don’t unscrew the walls, make a hole in the ceiling and throw a toaster into the bathtub. The virus is not anyone’s fault, but its your president’s fault that you guys were not prepared and did anything you could to get more people sick.

      @summermojo 22 people dead in my nation from COVID-19. 135,000 dead in the US. People aren’t physically different in NZ, the difference is leadership.

  10. If it were possible to build a wall around the US, most of the world leaders would gladly pay for it.

    • Hamish Gaffaney | July 7, 2020 at 9:07 AM | Reply

      That’s the funny thing you guys build your own wall, which ultimately might be used to keep you guys in😂

    • Roy Causton | July 7, 2020 at 2:09 PM | Reply

      Your WALL is already build …The world wants NOTHING to do with your Divine Leader and his FAILURE as a LEADER …and you Americans can just stay home loving your new way of life …. SAFE from all the brown /black people out to get your jobs ….. Thanks to the MONSTER

    • I’d even pitch in for that.

    We going to be like N. Korea soon. No one will allow us anywhere anymore.

    Ain’t this a trip in just 3 years of Trump America now is being treated like the Nazi party from the greatest nation to the true colors of the American people no one is going to want Americans in their country thank you Donald Trump for ruining my country

    • alan dickson | July 7, 2020 at 8:14 AM | Reply

      We still love the US buddy, we just starting to get the impression that its been overthrown by religious evangalist fruitcakes & Republican idiots.
      The emphasis is on “idiot’s” the Republican part seems to be a common denominator! 👊✌🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    • Sorry but it has to be said. Only Americans said that America is the best country in the world. Unfortunately it’s true in some unfortunate way. #1 in mishandling COVID19, #1 in individual gun deaths. #1 in mass killings. #1 in most people incarcerated….. need I continue?

    • Brad Canning | July 7, 2020 at 5:43 PM | Reply

      @John Till As a Canadian we live in fear of it spreading by our own country. The Conservative Party that mirrors Trump is our burden. Racist, elitist, deniers of science, and beholden to the corporate culture of corruption. Fortunately we’ve managed to put them back in their box.

    • He is a traitor

    • @Brad Canning Yep and I will always vote to keep them in their box. It’s sad with all that we have, that there are some drump wanna-bes up here who would gleefully turn us into ‘Murikkka 2.0

  13. Is there any Republican left who seriously indulges in the hallucination that the rest of the world admires the US?

    • Sandra Middleton | July 7, 2020 at 8:26 PM | Reply

      @Bill Bear You are a bit of a moron, aren’t you.. the rest of the world with decent governments have pretty well conquered this outbreak, our sport is starting to be played, our shops are open, we live life almost exactly pre pandemic whilst the US struggles. YOU have nothing sir.. a despot in the Whitehouse and a bunch of sycophants following him.

    • @Al Hernandez I’m sure there were fools saying that about the German people and Hitler.

    • @Bill Bear Well, if all your narrow little world is your trailer park, of course you don’t care.

    • @Bill Bear <---once these maga trolls start with the histrionics, lies and caps lock, I just report the filth. I don't bother reading another word of their slop. There's no point, because like a wise old man once said: "You can't argue with an idiot" ~ George Carlin

    • @SkyGemini <---Triggered 🤣🤣🤣

  14. It’s kinda ironic mexico banned American, Europe banned American, the rest of the world banned American. Now Americans Knows what it feels like being an immigrant and being literally told to go back into your own country.

    • @M F I missed it…what happened??

    • Brad Canning | July 7, 2020 at 5:33 PM | Reply

      @Gary Quarty What a simplistic one sided view of things. If the world turned their backs on you starvation and civil war between all your divided groups would destroy you. You have not enough food production, natural resources, nor the manufacturing facilities to supply yourself what you need to survive.

    • Canada seriously blocks usa travellers now.

    • @oddball hippie If you already “know that” why would you suggest to let Americans in? Something’s off with you.

    • @Gary Quarty Nobody’s paying you morons for NATO, clown show. And nobody wants your bases in their countries. Get your people, put up that wall and stay behind it. The world’s done with you. And, Putin will be really happy about NATO, that’s been his pet peeve for a long time, he just had to wait for a really stupid stooge to come along and he did. An orange one.
      So you’ll probably be allowed to fly to Russia.

    Funny enough people are constantly talking about they can’t wait to travel again, travel where? No one wants American tourism right now.

    • Zaidia Naif | July 7, 2020 at 2:02 PM | Reply

      @Angel Navarro bring it on.😂😂

    • Adrian Colley | July 7, 2020 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      We want American tourism, but only after a 14-day quarantine period. That’s all the paid time off that Americans get per year. So we’re not likely to get many American tourists until things turn around.

    • Gareth Hannaway | July 7, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      Please DO NOT come to Ireland – yes, American’s love to visit and see the scenery and drink whiskey and investigate their Irish ancestors or roots but just like Tom from Scotland said, you will be sent home without even leaving the airport. I wouldn’t count on holidays to anywhere in the UK either – they aren’t too happy with America under Trump on some very real levels (Strait of Hormuz, Harry Dunn, Coronavirus, Systemic Racism, withdrawal from UNESCO and UNHRC and Open Skies, de-funding of WHO during pandemic, the child prisoners you still have in immigration camps kept separate from parents, constantly in skirmishes and scandals with Russia, China, N Korea, etc. so at this point allegiance is ambiguous at best, I literally could go on forever…) so you can forget about the UK govt. allowing you in because they are allies with the US. Trump has been so damaging to your country on a world scale that you don’t even realize the half of it, even if you hate Trump too. He has cut America off from the rest of the world and held it hostage using his uneducated and deeply troubled base as foot soldiers to spread fear and hatred and division and lies – and we all see it plain as day from here in the UK, Ireland and Europe. Wake up America. Please. We don’t want to watch you suffering any more. <3

      @Zaidia Naif well good thing y’all left the EU after getting trucked by trump lol

    • You couldn’t pay me to go there.

    The MAGA Crowd are spreading COVID all over the country.

  17. Meanwhile Atgolf Twitler and his very own Himmler the anti science prophet Pence plan more super spreader events.

  18. Canada’s border has been closed for several months to Americans traveling for non essential reasons. We have things under control for now and don’t want covid-19 to spread to our country. Americans need to start understanding that individual rights are fine but only if they don’t hinder the collective rights to safety and health for a majority of the population. This explains why you still don’t have universal health care which shares the cost across the board. This health crisis in your country is due to selfishness on the part of many of you who only care about their individual rights without caring about other’s who may get sick with the virus. We have individuals like that in Canada as well, but our government is elected to take care of these matters for the well being of the majority. Any government not willing to take care of the majority by protecting collective rights to health, would be disposed off very quickly.

      Yet still the merican nazi’s continue to sneak across and invade us. I feel the government here needs to start handing out max penalty..which is $75,000.00 fine and 6 mos in jail PER PERSON. Last weekend 2 more discovered sneaking in to shop…lol…in thier 60’s I believe. Old enough to know better for sure, all they got was forced 14 day quarantine and $1,000.00 fine each. Deterents need to be more severe..for example remember how they treated mexicans…steal thier children, imprison babies and let them die in cages. Americans are NOT welcome in Canada.

    • Steve Derochie | July 7, 2020 at 1:56 PM | Reply

      Very well said! As a Canadian I sure hope the border stays closed until this is all over.

  19. Mexico is now safer then the United States, “Just get used to it, I don’t care about the virus you should not either” President trump
