Most people around the world disapprove of Trump

New York, January 9 (RHC)-- The international trend is skeptical of whether the president of the United States will do something right in foreign policy, as shown by the results of a survey conducted by Pew Research even before he had approved the drone attack that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani last week.

The poll consisted of telephone and face-to-face interviews with people from 33 countries.  It proves that a majority disapproved of some of his most famous policies: the imposition of tariffs on imported goods to gain an advantage in trade disputes, the withdrawal from climate change agreements, the construction of a wall on the border between Mexico and the United States and restrictions on U.S. immigration.

The 37,000 participants also expressed their disagreement with Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran.

The sentiment against the multi-millionaire businessman is common in Western Europe, where approximately 75% of people in Germany, Sweden, France, Spain and the Netherlands distrust him.  This negative opinion runs even deeper in Mexico, where 89% do not trust Trump, who has made Mexicans a target of their attacks and anti-immigration policies such as the border wall.

However not all the odds are against him, News Agency Al Jazeera also states that the majority of people surveyed in Israel, the Philippines, Kenya, Nigeria and India have confidence that the businessman-turned-president will do the right thing on the world stage.

Five leaders were rated in the poll, with the U.S. president receiving the most negative views.  Germany's Angela Merkel was the highest in the ranking.
