Los Americanos

Who cares? Apparently, you do since you "cared" enough to respond. There's a big difference between telling someone that you're from the United States (I say Chicago, Los Estados Unidos in Mexico), and identifying as an "American" when discussing nationality.

I'm retired U.S. Army and I've traveled the world. I'm proud to be American, regardless of who currently occupies the White House. You keep doing you and I will do the same. Cheers.

We've been meddling in the internal affairs of countries around the world for 75 years, 200 years in the Western Hemisphere, often violently; usually ineptly; almost always illegally and with poor-to-disastrous outcomes. Maybe it would be wise to step back and reconsider our imperialist ways. Maybe we're not the 'force for good in the world' like we pretend to be. Maybe we're not so exceptional after all. And maybe the rest of the world recognizes that and is tired of our interference. And maybe that's why 'Americans' are treated with disdain when they go abroad.
