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.

I spend lots of time in Mexico and I do not wear anything with USA, or America on it any more. For people who do not know me and ask, I am from Canada. I do have a few Canada shirts I wear.
In the current times this is VERY PRUDENT.

Nope. Call me crazy but I'm not going to hide the fact that I'm American. While I never wear the Stars and Stripes clothing overseas, I have no problem wearing Chicago Bears or White Sox or Bulls paraphernalia while traveling. I guess that's what spending 23 years proudly wearing a U.S. Army uniform will do to you.
