Leftist media outlets, overtaken by their Trump Derangement Syndrome, have refused a title for President Donald Trump that has been used commonly for every president since the early days of the Cold War — leader of the free world.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
When Donald Trump won the election, however, several media outlets published articles suggesting that the president of the United States could no longer be called the leader of the free world because of his worldview.
The latest example is a Politico article published Thursday, titled “The Leader of the Free World Meets Donald Trump,” which describes President Trump’s meeting Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The article was written by James Rubin, who served as assistant secretary of state for public affairs under former President Bill Clinton.
Rubin writes that Merkel is the “last best hope” for Western civilization, arguing the U.S. abandoned its role as a world leader to solve the Syria conflict while Germany led by taking in Syrian refugees.
“Trump and Merkel thus represent the two poles of the debate about refugees and responsibility in 2017,” the article says.
Rubin also references the two leaders’ divergent approaches to Russia and the European Union, as well as their different styles and backgrounds, to show that Germany’s chancellor, rather than America’s president, is now leading the Western world.
Other outlets have exposed their globalist position by declaring Merkel as leader of the free world as well:

CNN anchor Jake Tapper, during an interview at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, also claimed that Merkel is now leader of the free world.
“It’s a difficult environment when the commander in chief of the country–I’d say ‘Leader of the Free World,’ but I think that’s Angela Merkel now–hears anything he doesn’t like and calls it ‘fake news,'” Tapper said.
This is what not just Trump is up against, but what anyone that believes in national sovereignty is up against.
What we’re seeing here is an enormous push by globalists to force their radical agenda on us — and as we’ve seen in Germany, that agenda is incredibly dangerous.
