The pot calling the kettle black. That’s what President Trump condemnation of other nations for their human rights record feels like. Apparently for him food, health housing and education do not fall into that category.

OP-ED]: Trump is hurting America’s friends abroad

t is now quite possible -- in fact, likely -- that the next president of Mexico will be an anti-American socialist-populist similar to Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was polling around 10 percent at the start of 2015. He is now around 30 percent, the front-runner among the potential candidates for next year’s election. File

There has been much focus on Donald Trump’s erratic foreign policy -- the outlandish positions, the many flip-flops, the mistakes. But far more damaging in the long run might be what some have termed the Trump effect -- the impact of Trump on the domestic politics of other countries. That effect appears to be powerful, negative and enduring. It could undermine decades of American foreign policy successes.

In his new book, “The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream,” Cowen argues that we’ve overcorrected and gone too far toward trying to create perfect, insulated “bubble worlds” for ourselves and our kids. And now we’re afraid to change anything, lest we burst the bubble.

The headline grabbed my attention: “Americans have become lazy and it’s hurting the economy.” 

Lazy? Now there’s a four-letter word you rarely hear Americans use to describe themselves.
