The world doesn’t like Trump

Confidence in the US President has fallen from 64% to 22% under Trump.  No confidence has risen from 23% to 74%.  Those figures are from a Pew report in July.

A new Gallup survey shows worldwide approval of US leadership is at a new low of 30%.

Trump’s “America First” posture has isolated the country and created chances for other countries to increase their influence.

“America First” was used as a slogan by a group opposed to US entry into World War II.   The phrase has an anti-Semitic history in addition to its isolationist background.  I’m sure Trump knew the history of the phrase and correctly figured it would appeal to the bigoted part of his base. Sad!
