The end of the Trump presidency brought the US one of its biggest spikes in global approval ratings






The election of Joe Biden as president has led to a dramatic shift in Americaís international image. Throughout Donald Trumpís presidency, publics around the world held the United States in low regard, with most opposed to his foreign policies. This was especially true among key American allies and partners. Now, a new Pew Research Center survey of 16 publics finds a significant uptick in ratings for the U.S., with strong support for Biden and several of his major policy initiatives.

In each of the 16 publics surveyed, more than six-in-ten say they have confidence in Biden to do the right thing in world affairs. Looking at 12 nations surveyed both this year and in 2020, a median of 75% express confidence in Biden, compared with 17% for Trump last year.

2. Trump is an unlikable slug of a human being

that he formed a cult of personality, says something about those that worship him.

4. Yes those COVID briefings were disastrous

A lot of people watched and we got a good insight into him and it wasnít pretty. Petty, camera hogging, demeaning, no empathy or caring, jibberish nonsense and THEN the Lafayette Park-Bible stunt. I think that spring/summer did more damage to him than most experts think.

5. What Concerns Me Are The Upcoming Midterms & 2024 Election.....

Biden might be restoring confidence in the U.S. - but if the Congress or WH changes hands again - everything that Biden accomplished will be undone again.

How can any of our allies trust us - if they know that we've been playing switchy with our elections?

2022 & 2024 are very critical elections. We must hold down the fort and we must increase our presence in both the House and the Senate - if we want to continue confidence building amongst our allies.
