What Do Europeans Really Think About Americans?

November 12, 2019

– Anyone wanna try out an
American accent for me? – Yeehaw! So, howdy partner. We goin’ down go do some shootin’. (playful music) – Hi, I’m Ben and right now
I’m traveling through Europe and I figured I would ask
Europeans along the way what do they think of Americans? Let’s go find out. I want you to be as honest
as you can, all right? – Yeah. – So what’s the first thing
that comes to your mind when you think of Americans? – Ooh! (laughs) – Loud. – Loud. – Loud. – I would say loud. – Pretty loud sometimes. (laughs) – Loud. Everyone says loud. – Friendly. Like nice. – Good teeth. – They like to drink beer. They’re nice people. – They like drinking as does Austrians. – Enthusiastic. – What’s the first
thing that comes to mind when you think of Americans? – Hm. Superficial. (laughs) – We like Americans. They are always quite cool. They like fast food. We don’t like that so much, but when we are there we enjoy it. – I mean, the stereotypes is like- – [Ben] Yep. – …kind of fat and all that. – Fast food. – They eat a lot of food. Like the portions are like really big. Burgers and coke. – Food very fast. – I think of fast food restaurants. Five Guys. I love Five Guys. – [Ben] Okay, so of all
the things about America, the one thing you can think of- – Yeah and I think of Trump too. – Donald Trump. – Trump. – Just like Donald Trump, isn’t it? Everyone hatin’ on him
or absolutely lovin’ him. It’s like one of the two. – I like, uh, the Trump. Yes? – You do? – Yes. (laughs) I like it. – What do you like about Trump? – He’s mean about the world
and about the situation now. – You like him because he’s mean? – He’s very racist. He doesn’t really know
anything about politics. – When you see like Americans,
they’re really open-minded. They’re…like most of
them are really smart and we can’t understand that
Trump is your president. – That’s a big laugh, you know? People voted for him. You
get what you voted for. – Like I know basically everyone
in Europe is against Trump, but I think they needed a change. I just think that the two coasts dominated and there’s so many people in the middle they don’t get heard and
they’re finally getting heard. – I do like in America
that everyone’s kind of, If you’re born there, you’re American, and if you’re from another country and you’re moving to Austria
and your children are born here you’re still like,
“Yeah, I’m from Austria, “but, you know, my
heritage is this and that.” – America is the land of
change, of opportunity. – Actually, I think of
the American dream like, This way from the
dishwasher to a millionaire. You can make everything if you just wanted to make it and do it. – I think like people look at America and they like idolize it. You know like, “Oh it’s America.” Yeah. Everyone wants to go to America. – I was pretty keen
about going to America, but I think the whole
Trump has put me off. I’m not as keen to go anymore. It wouldn’t be the top of my list. – I just don’t see what
you need to have a gun. – I think Poland’s guns
are really hard to get, still kinda illegal. – And here, it’s not
that easy to get a gun. – There’s far too many guns in America. Of course their laws need to be restricted and it’s really hard for us to understand because in Ireland there is no guns. The police aren’t armed. It’s just so systemic in your culture. I don’t know how you could change it, but you definitely need to try. – It’s a big country, you know? – [Ben] Yeah. – You’ve got big problems. – (laughs) We do. – Yeah. (playful music)

    I don't find Trump scary at all. I think he has a highly intelligent funny side, some people don't get. Obama did some great things in his time in office too.. I don't get why people are so polar when it comes to parties. There's good on both sides, and at the end of the day, real change starts from the people and communities up; not the Presidents.

    I was born in American and am American. I voted for Donald J. Trump and helped to elect him………..he is our greatest president in history! We like him because he is FOR the American people, working for the American people (with no pay, he donates his salary each quarter), he's tough and he know what he's doing. I also like him because he not only speaks HIS mind, he speaks MY mind. We will have the WALL. BTW, I am a girl and a gun owner who carries a gun. My constitutional right!

    Curious, how many of these interviewees do what American's risk in funding and lives in the globally for freedom. United States is a very young country compared to the rest of the world. It is the melting pot of cultures and ideas of the world. So, really if there is anyone to blame it action is your country folks that immigrated here. In addition, all the lives that was spent in WWI, WW2, and etc. In the name of freedom. Noted, at time USA didnt do enough. Just curious??

    From an outside the box perspective, I can mostly see why these people had the opinions they did about america but at the same time they only see it from outside the box. Guns are heritage and what separates us from every other country in the world. They are also the reason why no other country in the world wants to try to invade american soil. Trump is a douchebag, let's face it. He doesnt have a filter and needs one so I also understand why most Europeans hate trump. At the same time though, it is my person opinion that trump is what we needed to bring america a step back in the right direction. Cool video. Itd he interesting to see other country's perspectives. Middle eastern, Asian and some African.

    The reason why so many people around the world see Trump negatively may probably be due to the fact that the most popular American news network watched outside the US is CNN, despite CNN having mediocre rating within America.

    America certainly has it’s share of problems but it’s the only place in the world where you have actual rights that’s the government or anyone else can not take away. It’s also a place where if you work hard and smart you can literally achieve massive goals. The resources are there for you but it’s going to take a lot of work. That’s the trade off.

    Outsiders have no valuable opinion on guns in America, if you aren’t from America and you don’t know our history, you will never understand why we have so many guns. A first world country where citizens are allowed to own a gun is text book freedom and democracy, a gun owning civilian is proof that the free world still exists. You take our guns, you take our freedom.
