We have a deal, but Washington has also deeply damaged America's brand

On August 2, David Rothkopf posted an article about the deal to raise the debt ceiling. According to him, the process leading up to the debt ceiling deal “has almost certainly done much more severe lasting damage than we are easily able to calculate today.”

“The elected stewards of our nation did immeasurable damage to the United States’ reputation,” said Rothkopf.

“I don’t think most people in Washington have any idea of the damage that has been done in the past few weeks to America’s brand around the world,” said one major international figure.
