4. state of the union? trashed by cheetolini

From the article:


In fact, the U.S. image abroad has suffered under Trump, particularly among its allies.

Gallup Poll released a poll on Jan. 18 that found “the image of U.S. leadership is weaker worldwide than it was under his two predecessors.” The median approval of U.S. leadership fell to a “new low” of 30 percent, down from 48 percent in 2016, across 134 countries and areas, according to Gallup.

Last spring, a Pew Research Center survey of 37 countries reported “a global median of 49% hold a favorable view of the U.S,” down 15 percentage points from the end of the Obama presidency.

Among U.S. neighbors, Pew’s polling found 30 percent of Mexicans viewed the U.S. favorably, down by a full 36 percentage points under Trump, and only 43 percent of Canadians viewed the U.S. favorably, down 22 percentage points. Among NATO allies, the U.S. favorability rating dropped 22 points among Germans, 17 points among the French, 28 points among the Dutch, and 11 points among the British.

The only big improvement was in Russia, where 41 percent of Russians view the U.S. favorably, an increase of 26 points under Trump, according to Pew.

Trump is bad for our country and the world.

6. Love this organization!

All this information is out there, they do the hard work of pulling it together and presenting it.

The problem is: Fox viewers and trump supporters will not hear about any of this. They just listen to the words coming out of trumps mouth and never think to check the facts. It's almost like they enjoy being lied to.
