American leadership is polling low among the citizens of the world, but that doesn’t exactly make supporters of President Donald Trump.
According to a Gallup poll, the country of the rating among the respondents has dropped from 48 percent approval in 2016 up to 30 percent approval in 2018.
The last time the U.S. approval rating was so low in 2008, when the AMERICAN government under the leadership of former President George W. Bush clocked in at 34 percent amid the economic wreckage of the Great Recession.
Trump supporters brushed off the poll results, saying: it is time that the world realized that the “free ride” of the usa-on trade, on defence spending and more — is over.

“What a relief to know that @realDonaldTrump is not polling well in the world. Phew. Was afraid that he would retire at the head of the UN!” tweeted Ed Martin, a CNN contributor and Missouri politics. “Here in MAGAmerica, we are happy that he brings us first: the economy, employment, the killing of ISIS, the judges.”
Jason Miller, Trump’s former spokesperson of the campaign, said the Gallup poll shows Trump is no pushover, and is, as he promised he would, demands that America be listened to by the rest of the world.
“Of course, certain countries of the region-America is no longer a pushover,” Miller tweeted on Thursday. “(Trump) is the cutting off financing of terrorists, making allies pay their share of the work and the introduction of American jobs first is exactly what we elected him to do!”
And Laura Ingraham, a former Reagan speechwriter, LifeZette co-founder, Talk Radio star and host of ” The Ingraham Angle,” on Fox News, said Trump’s priority is to succeed-for-America.
“Although he is not to be liked by the world, but to MAGA,” Ingraham tweeted, referring to the abbreviation for Make America great Again. “She said similar to the abbot of Reagan.”
But Reagan biographer Craig Shirley had some concerns, because, he said, Trump needs allies in Asia and Europe to be more positive if he wants to build coalitions with North Korea and with enemies in the Middle East.
“There is strength in numbers,” Shirley told LifeZette. “It is always better to be liked. Usually if you didn’t like it, you’re not well-respected.”
Predictably, Trump critics pounced on the poll, claiming that it proves that Trump has generated hatred against the USA in the foreign country and reduced the traditional American role of force in global affairs.
Critics also noted that Germany has replaced the United States as the country with the signs of the highest approval rating, 41 percent, which is essentially the same level maintained by the country of the leaders of a decade.
China drew a 31 percent approval rating and Russia was only 27 percent.
In summary, the approval of the U.S. leadership, dipped in Latin America, Western Europe, Japan, Australia, South Korea and India.
Not bad for Trump. Gallup found that approval for the AMERICAN leadership increased by 10 points or more in four countries: Liberia (+17), Macedonia (+15), Israel (+14), and belarus (+11), as well as by smaller numbers in Poland, the Ukraine, Nigeria and Iraq.
Gallup does not poll in China, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and a number of smaller nations.
