Dear Editor,

Unlike many Jamaicans flocking the United States Embassy begging a visa, I have no wish to travel to the States except for when I used to go there to spend my money to buy needed items.

I am now forced to wonder if the average American citizen realises how rapidly the US is losing prestige and positive influence in the international community and the White House is being converted into a romping shop.

William McKenzie
