NBC News Covers Foreign Media’s Reaction to Trump’s Speech to Congress

NBC News [1] wrote an article summarizing the foreign media coverage and reaction to President Donald Trump’s speech to Congress. Maybe they ran out of American anti-Trump narratives to publish, so they turned to the United Kingdom, Mexico, Germany, China, Russia and Italy? For example, in their section on British media, they wrote the following:

Opinion was divided in the U.K., where Prime Minister Theresa May is eager to forge closer ties with the U.S. as it prepares to depart from the European Union.

A columnist for the left-leaning Guardian newspaper called the speech a “heroic effort in contradiction and clich√©.”

“The president’s first address to Congress was full of inconsistency when compared to his words and deeds in the White House,” Richard Wolffe¬†wrote in a scathing piece on the paper’s website [2].
