Fox News Asked Why People Aren’t Proud To Be American Anymore And Latinos Gave The Best Responses

As we enter the Fourth of July holiday weekend, the majority of Americans are not celebrating the way our president would hope. We aren’t jumping on the $2.5 million parade President Donald Trump is thrilled to be hosting in the nation’s capital. The country’s number one rated conservative news station asked that very question after a very troubling poll about who is proud to be American, which they found surprising, but we did not.

A poll shows that people in the U.S. are less proud to be American, and Fox & Friends could not understand why.

The poll shows that “being American has been steadily weakening in recent years,” and the latest reading is the “lowest point to date.” The poll shows that the highest readings on the measure — 69 percent and 70 percent — were between 2002 and 2004, which was right after the Sept. 11 attacks.

So Latinos gave Fox & Friends a variety of reasons why they’re not extremely proud to be American these days. For starters, President Trump cozying up with dictators.

President Trump has gone against the ideals of the U.S. since he became president. Not only is he actively trying to find ways to avoid following the constitution, he is praising the enemies of democracy as if they are somehow not attacking our way of life.

Just because our president has a mountain of allegations against him, doesn’t make us any less patriotic.

People are really upset with the man in the White House because of his questionable leadership and willingness to go against most, if not all, American ideals. Namely, his willingness to lie to the American people to stir up anger to keep himself in power.

The issues in our country go beyond immigration.

There are a lot of people suffering right now and it has nothing to do with the issue at the border. We have so many issues facing our nation and the president is turning a blind eye to them. Gun violence is something he has not acknowledged and he has made it easier to access guns in the U.S.

Russia should be celebrating the 4th of July now.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has become one of Trump’s closest friends. Trump has even pushed back against intelligence agencies in the U.S. and sided with Putin on the issue of Russia helping Trump win the presidency.

Hate to break this to you, Fox & Friends it’s you, it’s always been you.

The country’s most popular conservative station is one of the reasons why people aren’t into feeling American these days. There are too many examples to get into on this one but let’s just say the “Fox & Friends” celebrates the most unAmerican “victories” to the detriment of the American people.

Why don’t we just list the reasons why?

It might be shorter for some people to list all the reasons why they would be proud to be American. Apparently, the people in charge of immigration don’t even want the diversity in the U.S. to continue given them wanting to remove “nation of immigrants” from their mission statement.

A lot of people did agree that Trump is the biggest reason why people are not proud.

Fox & Friends asked and people wanted to answer. The American people could not be clearer with what they are feeling. Trump is hurting the standing of the U.S. in the world.

It really does seem to be a trend here.

Like, the American people are overwhelmingly in favor of policies and talking points from the Democratic Party on terms of abortion, immigration, gun reform, etc.

This unAmerican feeling has been inside people for a while now.

It certainly did not begin with Trump, but he did make it worse. The crisis at the border has galvanized people. The moment people started to learn that babies and children were being subject to cruel, torturous, and inhumane conditions, heart broke and reform was demanded.

One person just went for it and started naming names of those who make people feel less and less proud to be an American.

We’re pretty sure all of those people will be celebrating with Trump on the 4th of July.

Some folks are just unhappy with being lied to consistently.

There are few things the president has followed through with and those promises kept have been hurtful to several communities.
