Most people around the globe don’t trust Donald Trump to do the right thing when it comes to foreign affairs, according to a survey released Wednesday, but they do have positive overall views of the United States.
The Pew Research Center survey of 37,000 adults from 33 countries via phone and face-to-face interviews found that 64% of respondents lacked confidence in Trump to do the right thing on the global stage and only 29% had confidence in him. However, a 54% majority held a favorable view of the U.S. as a whole. While citizens of most countries showed low trust in Trump near or below the average, a handful of countries saw the opposite results.
People from the Philippines, India, Israel, Kenya, Nigeria and Poland indicated majority support for the U.S. president at 77%, 56%, 71%, 65%, 58% and 51%, respectively. By contrast, only 8% of Mexicans said they were confident in Trump’s ability to handle world affairs.
The survey was completed before Trump ordered the killing of a top Iranian military figure.
