When you insist on doing these things, this is what most other American citizens think to themselves:
* Our President and our State Department are pathetic sniveling poodles to repugnant regimes that do not share our values and who hate us.
* Our President's administration does not serve their fellow citizens, but disdains them, and do not seem particularly moved by commonsense demands for safety and rule of law.
I dunno. "Pathetic sniveling poodles" is a bit too kind.
How about "festering virus-laden pustules"?
