    New Yorker is someone from New York specifically.

    In Canada, American technically means someone from anywhere in the western hemisphere. In the U.S.,, it means a U.S. Citizen.

    Because of this difference in meaning, U.S. ambassadors to Canada, Mexico, South America and Central America are officially called "Ambassador of the United States", but U.S. ambassadors to Europe, Asia, Africa, etc., are called "American Ambassador".

      Bernie is a New Yorker who lives in Vermont. From Brooklyn actually. Mr Trump has a manner and style that many people dont like and he pushes back against criticism. Bernie isnt criticized much. The media is liberal so Democrats are not against him. Mr. Trump is criticized because he is #1.

    You should learn to spell Missouri. Some people think they are New Yorkers first, and Americans second. Doesnt mean they are not patriotic, just their life experience makes them that way.

      This guy is making fun of you. He misspelled it on purpose.

  • It’s not different. Different states parts of the country have different slang/culture. For example, New Yorkers are fast paced lifestyle while Californians are more laid back. Both states are within America, which means there american. They could call you southern but your not just southern you’re an

    American.

    In Ireland for example the north and south have different twangs to there accents but at the end of the day there still Irish.

    New Yorkers aren't Americans because Jews are only loyal to Israel.

      Only orthodox Jews support Zionism. Liberal Jews dont like Israel's policies against others.

    Americans don't want the destruction of the United States the way Fox News conservatives do.

      It looks to me like the Democrats are being very slick, using the media to back them on their efforts to overthrow this government and president like a 3rd world country.
