    Careful, the Right will accuse you of hating America.

    I'd love to be able to say that Trump believes this because he recognizes other countries can be exceptional too, and that the United States is not always the best at everything.

    But I have to believe that he's really saying it because it fuels his propaganda that other countries are taking everything away from us.

    American Exceptionalism isn't a thing because of what America has given the world.

    Its a thing because of what America thinks the world owes it.....

    You can just look at how Americans bleat on about having saved the world in WW2...... which is just the propaganda they must get taught in history classes

    Nobody needs to be the best at everything. Driving down any nation because all the others do it on the cheap and with nothing but disdain for those trying to help them up is another.
