Trump now trusted less than Putin or Xi globally (and any other national leader mentioned)

President is least trusted major world leader with 16% having confidence he would ‘do the right thing’ in world affairs

A poll conducted by the Pew Research Center of more than 13,000 adults in 13 advanced economies between 10 June and 3 August shows international confidence in the US and its president sharply down across the board, reaching historical lows in several countries.

In the UK, 41% of those polled expressed a favourable opinion of the US, the lowest proportion registered by the Pew survey to date. In France, less than a third viewed the US positively, and just over a quarter of Germans surveyed, similar to the dim ratings both countries gave the US at the time of the Iraq invasion in March 2003.

The survey found Trump was the least trusted major world leader. A median of 16% of those polled in the 13 countries had confidence Trump would “do the right thing in world affairs”, putting him below Vladimir Putin (23%) and Xi Jinping (19%).

The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, was the most trusted leader, with a 76% confidence rating among the six leaders presented as options. Emmanuel Macron (64%) and Boris Johnson (48%) were also on the list.

U.S. Image Plummets Internationally as Most Say Country Has Handled Coronavirus Badly

Part of the decline over the past year is linked to how the U.S. had handled the coronavirus pandemic. Across the 13 nations surveyed, a median of just 15% say the U.S. has done a good job of dealing with the outbreak. In contrast, most say the World Health Organization (WHO) and European Union have done a good job, and in nearly all nations people give their own country positive marks for dealing with the crisis (the U.S. and UK are notable exceptions). Relatively few think China has handled the pandemic well, although it still receives considerably better reviews than the U.S. response.

Let's play ... spot the Republican presidency!



Still, there is one group of people in the world who have a bit more confidence in Trump:



Not that any far right party support for him breaks the 50% barrier ...

4. That's because he is completely untrustworthy.

You can't believe a word that comes out of his mouth.
