I’m generally considered extreme left, and I don’t want Trump removed at all.
But then again, I can’t wait for the capitalist beast which is the US economic empire to sag through its abusive legs and die in a pool of its own faeces.
If I was an American I would be rather worried about how this administration is damaging the country and its international position on the short and long terms.
Gonna be honest, the USA has (for better or for worse, probably worse) a significant number of people who favor isolationism. Pat Buchanan (an avowed isolationist) ran for president way back and still has a large following.
Actually, not unlike you, many Americans are just sick of dealing with the problems and demands of other countries. The money-hungry capitalists of course would never truly support backing completely out of the global market, but I bet there are a lot of people that would like to see what would happen. Just cut the rest of the world off, support ourselves, and see if we can force the hand of the other countries and get a better "deal." This touches on Trump's popularity. Give the rest of the world the middle finger and make them consider what life would be like without bloated, lazy American consumers depending on their products.
Anyway, I don't take offense at you wanting America to collapse because I empathize with Americans who feel the same way about everyone else.
Me, I'm in the middle on this.
