The Trump Effect in Mexico

The American news media has not covered the damage this president is doing to our reputation abroad in depth. This will remain after Donald Trump leaves office. Why? This is likely for two reasons. We live within a deep American bubble. Meaning news organizations do not have many reporters abroad. This was a decision made decades ago, and it prevents us from understanding other cultures. Then there is the other aspect. This will run smack into the wall of American exceptionalism. The myths we tell ourselves are important, and deep. They are culture walls that prevent us from looking deeper inwards.
