25 Countries That Hate Americans. Land of the free, home of the brave. The country of dreams. Everyone wants to live in the USA, right? Okay, well, everyone at least thinks Americans are great...right? Maybe not. This can be a significant issue for diplomatic envoys across the globe.
Anti-Americanism has been on the rise for the past 15 years, a lot of it originating from global disapproval of America’s invasion of Iraq. Even today, America is still dealing with the backlash from that and several other controversial choices. Guess it really is impossible to please everybody.
A country’s approval rating of America and its citizens can have major impacts on all diplomatic and foreign policy decisions between the two nations. So, when nations hate Americans for one reason or another, it can cause some tension and problems. American ideals, politicians, habits, attitudes, and a plethora of other topics can lead to members of a foreign country harboring a deep hatred or distrust of America, and honestly, some of those feelings are justified.
Though, there is an upside to knowing exactly what other countries aren’t too fond of the United States. Knowing what specific countries don’t like and why they don’t like the U.S.’s choices can give the shot-callers in Washington a pretty good roadmap on how to appeal to more people across the globe.
