Let me see now.

The United Kingdom has existed since 1707.

The USA since 1783, and arguably since 1776.

Until 1783, the 13 Colonies that formed the basis of the USA were British.

The USA bought the Louisiana Territory in 1803, doubling its size, with British gold.

The Monroe Doctrine of no European interference in the Americas was for decades actually enforced by the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy.

In 1862 Abraham Lincoln in the Trent Affair (when a US Navy ship intercepted a British ship carrying Confederate officials) worked to prevent the United Kingdom from recognizing the Confederacy, as there was no way the USA could possibly have overcome both a Civil War and a war with the United Kingdom.

Granted, matters have changed since 1862, and the United Kingdom is not now the world power it was.

However, the United Kingdom remains the United Kingdom, a nation independent of the USA.

Conclusion= the USA really needs to get over itself!
