Less Than One-Quarter Of The Public Thinks Donald Trump Is Respected By Other Leaders

Most Americans donít think President Donald Trump is respected by other international leaders, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds.

Just 24 percent of those polled say leaders of other countries around the world have respect for Trump, while 55 percent say they donít think those leaders have much respect for him. Another 21 percent arenít sure.

The survey comes after a tumultuous week for the relationships between the White House and some of the United Statesí closest allies. German Chancellor Angela Merkel paid a tense visit to Washington, while officials in the United Kingdom denounced Trumpís claims their intelligence agency had helped to wiretap him as ďridiculous.Ē

But even earlier in his tenure, Trump faced unusually high doubts about his reputation abroad. A Gallup poll taken in February found that 29 percent of Americans thought Trump was respected by foreign leaders. In contrast, 67 percent and 49 percent, respectively, thought Barack Obama and George W. Bush were considered respected during month two in office, according to Gallupís polling.

1. And another quarter don't give a damn

whether he's respected or not. As long as he stands up to the left and to the media.

2. Some might see it as a strength that he isn't respected.
