    I was listening to Washington Journal this morning when this topic came up. As usual the right wing Trumpettes came out against the poll citing their usual excuses such as polls don't matter, or the size of the poll was too small. Of course, just recently a Pew Poll came out in favor of Trump, and that one was very "credible" to the Trumpette. Well, they certainly don't like this one:

    http://www.pewglobal.org/2017/06/26...lics-around-world-question-trumps-leadership/

    Although he has only been in office a few months, Donald Trump’s presidency has had a major impact on how the world sees the United States. Trump and many of his key policies are broadly unpopular around the globe, and ratings for the U.S. have declined steeply in many nations. According to a new Pew Research Center survey spanning 37 nations, a median of just 22% has confidence in Trump to do the right thing when it comes to international affairs. This stands in contrast to the final years of Barack Obama’s presidency, when a median of 64% expressed confidence in Trump’s predecessor to direct America’s role in the world.

    If it's about racism, then it's hypocritical as many of these nations' citizens are massively racist.

    First, Europe is NOT as racist as the US. I KNOW, as I live here (currently Belgium, but also France and England, and spent a lot of time in Portugal and Italy), and lived in the US (California, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and SC) for the better part of 45 years.

    Second, racism is NOT the only issue the world has against Trump. In fact, this is just the LATEST issue. Trump hasn't shown ONE SIDE that is acceptable and worth of respect from the world.

    He is just a joke, and it is too late to change that world judgement.

    I'm amazed that anyone could find so many people in the UK able to tolerate Trump as this poll shows. They had an Any Questions which featured his upcoming visit here, and the Subsequent Any Answers had to work desperately to keep up any sort of balance. The best they could do was someone who thought it might help trade. If only Trump had been firmly established before the Brexit vote - the thought of being dependent upon trade with that scumbag would have killed it stone dead!

    Yes, it's from January. Do you suppose world opinion has changed much in the past 4 months? I wonder.

    Say, wasn't it your countrymen who circulated a petition to ban Trump from the UK?

    well that Kim Yum Yum fella seems to be warming to him...soon to be BFFs...or at least that's the line at the moment...we'll see....

    Maybe we could invite Kim along to the UK at the same time as Trumpy. They could go for a quick round of golf and a slurp of Scotch in the bar, get pissed and make friends...Kim would then put in a good word for Trumpy with the Chinese, Trumpy could re-board Air Force Trump and grope a few stewardesses...pay them off....tweet about it... and alls well in the world again!
