    Makes you wonder how much he can attack the courts and how much they will be swayed.
    He plainly doesn't understand that he is not CEO of the USA, and that there are three branches to US government. He wants to be a dictator, not a democratic head of state, IMO. That is cause for concern.

    I am laughing because you say Canada as an option while the thread was only about the UK and the USA. I hope that you wouldn't take that in offence, if so I apologize
    It must be a single country, as Trump doesn't want to build a wall between the US and Canada. They also share a country code

    The UK isn't anymore friendly than the USA when it comes to immigrants unless you live in London or an area with heavy immigration. As for healthcare, if you have a job you're covered and many states offer their own subsidised/free healthcare programs and with the state of the NHS which is only going to continue going down you might wanna sign up to Bupa. The only thing I would agree with is weapons control but again, choose a good area and it'll be minimal.
    It's true that Brexit may wake up some racist boneheads, but it's common when this sort of things happen and it won't last for a long time. Also the healthcare programs which are offered for the american workers don't cover everything or have a lot of restrictions.

    It is fascinating, especially all his supporters who dont really care about the so called judges. Be interesting to see if Gorsuch is his lapdog or capable of standing on his own. Apparently he will get to appoint three more as well. I wonder if he really will attempt to push Roe V Wade back, surely that really will divide America?

    I have invaded the UK(Except Scotland) and is an excellent place because it has so much gold, wood and tin! Ofcourse we had to put up with numerous rebellions from British tribes that didn't like us! As for the US I have never been to the other end of the world! They say that the other end of the world is a very scary and hellish place, I would not like the emperor to try and send us there in search of new lands!

    Trump is stupid and racist. I don't know why a great part of the American people have voted for him. Maybe, they feel nostalgia about the 80s and think that Trump would be like Reagan. However, they are wrong. Also, I can't believe that Trump is so unfriendly with immigrants while 2 of their 3 wives were foreign. What's more, It sounds utterly suspicious that a construction tycoon wants to build a huge and extremely expensive wall with the excuse of "prevent immigration"

    I wouldn't call Trump racist as he has nothing against any race but he certainly is stupid. Like one says America is the land of guns! I am telling you, my pilum is better than their stupid guns!

    There was another thread on this. It depends on what your priorities are.

    I'm British, but live in California. I would not live in most places in the US. I would live in some places in the UK, but, overall, I prefer life here. I may move when I retire, but where will probably be decided more by where my children settle than my preference (which would currently be the Caribbean)
    SoCal>>>>>London

    I prefer America to the UK

    I feel like the UK is good for individuals who want a half-decent/simple life. However, unless it is London, Birmingham or Manchester, life could get pretty boring easily. The USA may be suited to individuals who want to live life to the fullest, and also those who are not overly-paranoid about safety/security etc. After all, people seem to forget that the USA is a MASSIVE country, and all of these shootings/police brutality incidents etc do not affect the vast majority of people, regardless of age, race, gender. Because the media is constantly focused on the negative aspect of things, it just creates more paranoia/fear. But in my personal opinion the UK just cannot compare with the US in terms of entertainment/leisure activities. The USA caters to many types of personalities/lifestyles. Also, most states in America have much better weather than the UK (which is important to me because I detest the cold/rain). If I was lucky enough to get a green card, I'd definitely take the chance. It's good to be alert of the problems in our world, but at the same time if we live our lives in constant fear, then surely that just reduces one's quality of life anyway?
