The Times (UK) confirmed the golf cart episode, “The distance between Donald Trump and his G7 partners was spelled out dramatically today when Theresa May and the leaders of Italy, France, Germany, Japan and Canada strolled the streets of Taormina, Sicily — while he followed in a golf cart.”
The rest of the world was walking strong and united together, while the tired old United States was puttering along behind in a golf cart. This is the perfect metaphor for what Donald Trump has done to the US image of strength and vitality around the world.
Republicans with a big assist from their Russian friends managed to replace an energetic and young forward-thinking president, with a tired older president who can’t keep up with the world around him.
Donald Trump is the embodiment of an America that is falling behind, while the rest of the world is passing him by.
