Bill, We do note one parallel between Trump and Johnson (please do not refer to him as Boris as he is in the end a nasty self-serving piece of work) in that Johnson has surrounded himself with a cabinet of 'yes-men' a number of which have a track record of either failure or improper practices which have caused them to previously be dismissed from ministerial office.
But, I do not agree that we offered Trump decorum and polite protocol, the majority of decent people in the UK did not even want him to set foot in the UK. That was set up on purely on the whim of a single UK politician who was effectively thrown out of office. In fact our London Mayor made it clear that Trump wasn't wanted by 'correctly' refusing Trump a red carpet when he arrived at Stansted.
In terms of the d-day landings commemoration, Trump showed himself as a pathetic nasty piece of excrement by ranting about your House Speaker in front of war graves. On that basis alone, if the worlds Heads or State have any decency whatsoever, they will commemorate the seventy-first anniversary of d-day and not commemorate VE or VJ day until Trump shows proper respect for the war-fallen.
