World Respect of the President - Trump vs. Obama

Message 1 of 1

Some may recall a topic posted just three years ago by one of the forums astute posters, "said a lot".  The topic was titled, "For First Time Ever, Majority Believe World Leaders Don't Respect Obama" and can be reviewed here: For First Time Ever, Majority Believe World Leaders Don’t Respect Obama  

 

Interestingly, Gallup conducted a poll recently and found that...

 

Gallup Poll Says Just 29% of Americans Think Trump is Respected by World Leaders

 

On Friday, Gallup released the results of a new poll about perception of President Donald Trump, and the United States in general, in the rest of the world. While more Americans believe that the country is seen unfavorably than they have in the last 10 years, the number that jumps out most is how they think Trump is seen. Just 29% of Americans believe other world leaders respect Trump, while 67% believe that said leaders “don’t have much respect” for him.

 

The results are almost the complete opposite from where respondents thought Barack Obama stood in a poll conducted at the same point a few weeks into his first term in 2009. In that Gallup poll, 67% (the same percentage that thinks Trump isn’t respected now) thought he was respected by world leaders, with just 20% believing that they “don’t have much respect” for him. In 2001, George W. Bush, just a few weeks removed from an inaugural parade where his limousine was egged, did much better than Trump, with 49% of respondents feeling he’s respected, though 38% thought other leaders “don’t have much respect” for him.

I would imagine it's fair to say, "That say's a lot!"
