Donald Trump, one year on

Poll Record Share of Americans Strongly Disapprove of Trump AP File

The US approval rating plunged to an all-time low, by 18 percent from the 48 percent in the last year of President Barack Obama and four points lower than the previous low of 34 percent during the last year of President George W. Bush.

Mr Trump's honeymoon period did not last long, as eight days after his inauguration he had managed to achieve a majority disapproval rating.

Formal state visits aside, Trump has bestowed special treatment on two visiting leaders, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and China's President Xi Jinping, with invitations to his Mar a Lago club in Florida, where the leaders were afforded opportunities for relaxed, extended one-on-one interactions.

Overall, only 30 percent in Asia approved of USA leadership while 32 percent approved of China's leadership.

The poll, released Thursday, shows that only 30 percent of the public approves of USA leadership, down from 48 percent in 2016.

Overall, approval of USA leadership plunged in Latin America, Western Europe, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and India.

13 percent chose "putting America first". The U.S.is now just behind China at 31 per cent, and just ahead of Russian Federation at 27 per cent.

It was another step forward for the Serbian former world number one, who had been out of action for six months with elbow trouble. Hyeon Chung ensured the subsequent match on Rod Laver Arena went the distance, too, as he took out another Zverev.

Approval of the U.S. government in those countries dropped sharply, the Gallup poll discovered.

Jason Miller, Trump's former campaign spokesman, said the Gallup poll shows Trump is not a pushover, and is, as he promised he would, demanding that America be listened to by the rest of the world.

"In doing so, he walked away from key institutions and alliances in 2017 that he felt didn't serve USA interests, including abandoning the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal and withdrawing from the global climate agreement".

Approval of U.S. leadership climbed by 10% or more in only four countries: Belarus, Israel, Macedonia and Liberia.

Still another reason for Trump's low approval rating is that he has reduced the office of the presidency to a poorly executed, though oddly compelling, reality television show. "However, it is clear that based on the trajectory of what the world thinks of the USA, numerous United States alliances and partnerships that the Trump administration considers a "great strength" are potentially at risk". "But at the end of his first year, "disgust" was the word most cited about him". "These numbers will make it harder for those leaders to publicly cooperate with the Trump administration - even when it might be in their interest to do so".

A year into the Trump presidency, this American carnage is not hard to see. Furthermore, compared to Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman, Trump is still the most unpopular president one-year in.
