“Big nations should not bully smaller ones. [Obama calls America a bully (again) with respect to its historical relationship with Vietnam and then continues to denigrate America during his historic trip to Vietnam.] … No nation is perfect. Two centuries on, the United States is still striving to live up to our founding ideals. We still deal with our shortcomings – too much money in our politics, and rising economic inequality, racial bias in our criminal justice system, women still not being paid as much as men doing the same job. We still have problems. And we’re not immune from criticism, I promise you. I hear it every day. But that scrutiny, that open debate, confronting our imperfections …” Obama, Remarks by President Obama in Address to the People of Vietnam, National Convention Center, Hanoi, Vietnam, May 24, 2016.
