Washington, Aug 12: Americans who have gone on to world tours this summer vacation are not finding it pleasant and none other than Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee for this year's election, is responsible for it.
According to an article published in the Washington Post, Americans who have gone abroad are facing uncomfortable questions about Trump, who it described as "bizarre".
"Two weeks abroad and I lost count of how many baffled Europeans asked us to explain Donald Trump," the post quoted Sherry Stern, a California magazine editor, as tweeting. Stern found himself at the receiving end in a number of locations in Europe.
Another retired American theatre-writer, who will visit Berlin next month, said in a tweet that he would have to explain "American Fascism to Germans", the Post article said.
The same is happening in France, the Washington Post article said. It cited the example of Daunelle Wulstein from California who frequently visits France for business and pleasure. Wulstein said explaining stuff on Trump has become a bigger task this year since the French have a high regard for Barack Obama, the outgoing US president.
The article said "Heading across the Pacific instead of the Atlantic doesn't help", revealing the dissatisfaction over Trump's admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
