, the Republican contender for the post of the President of the USA has wound up his World Tour but, it is doubtful if the impression that he has left in the countries he visited would add to his stature.
He has continued to make statements that have not helped his cause. In fact, they might have been nails in his coffin.

This gave an indication that criticism was not welcome.
