>> President Donald Trump's held the Oval Office for five months and according to a new poll, in that time, the world's image of the United States has plunged. A Pew Research Center survey of 37 nations shows an overwhelming majority of people in other countries have no confidence in the President's ability to lead.
>> Love Trumps Hate.>> The businessman came into office with the pledge to put America first. But his policies on immigration, climate change and trade all contributing to a slump in US favorability ratings to 49%, similar numbers to the end of George W. Bush's presidency and to contrast, a drop of 15% from Barack Obama's tenure.
It's some of America's closest allies, Mexico, Canada, Germany and Spain where the fall has been steepest. Just 30% of Mexicans now say they have a favorable view of the United States and the survey showed even deeper mistrust of Trump himself. The only two countries where his ratings improved compared to Obama were Russia and Israel.
He scored lower than both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping in confidence ratings. Only 22% of the 40,000 people surveyed thought he would do the right thing in world affairs. German Chancellor Angela Merkel scored 42%, the highest of the four leaders in the survey. The majority of respondents labelled the American president arrogant, intolerant and dangerous, but there is a positive side.
The poll found 58% of those surveyed have a positive view of Americans in general and in many parts of the world, they expect relations of the United States to stay roughly the same.
