Of all the considerable damage Donald Trump has inflicted upon the United States, perhaps that which will take the longest to undo is his destruction of the country’s reputation around the globe.
Foreign leaders disdain him, and citizens of foreign nations can’t understand why the most powerful nation in the world would elect an utter idiot to its highest office. It’s a sin that we’ll be paying for in decades to come.
The latest voice of criticism directed at Trump is Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau, who took to Twitter to slam Trump in light of the Texas Hurricane Harvey flooding. She takes aim at his ludicrous desire to build a wall along the Mexican border and instead advises him to devote federal resources to legitimate infrastructure projects.

The princess is a noted human rights activist, and as such certainly, see the hateful Trump administration through the lens of its negative effect on the world. It’s brave of her to stand up to the president, and more people should follow her example.
