Over three-quarters of the world had at least 50 % confidence that he would do the right thing.


Today very few countries have any confidence that Trump will do the right thing.

Any questions?

    I notice that Israel’s stance remains unchanged. Considering all the pandering Trump has done to them and Russia, to the exclusion of the rest of the world, I would have expected their rating to be higher.

    So sad how far our country’s reputation has fallen in only two years. Can’t blame them. Wonder what the overall rate of Americans that believe their president will do the right thing, for both us and the rest of the world.

    “This new information suggests that Vice President Pence could prove to be a crucial witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice,”

    If the dual-sovereignty doctrine were overturned, as Hatch has asked, a Trump pardon would protect Manafort from prosecution in New York and elsewhere, and he would be essentially freed from his obligation to testify against his associates.

    “If Hatch gets his way,” said Elie Honig, a former assistant U.S. attorney in New Jersey, “a federal pardon would essentially block a subsequent state-level prosecution.”

      If Pence gets to testify in the investigation, he’ll turn on Trump immediately. I bet he’s been eagerly waiting for Trump to be removed.

    “Hansen had voted for Trump in 2016. He also voted for the Republican congressman for Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District, Andy Barr. But Hansen’s fortunes changed in 2017 after he had a stroke, an event so debilitating, he said, he couldn’t work, losing his health care coverage. He said he now pays for outside insurance, even though he’s entitled to get service from the Department of Veterans Affairs, because he said the care there is so poor.”

    “She’s also been in the military. She knows what it means to honor her commitments.”
    McGrath leaned over to Hansen and said the words that sealed his SUPPORT FOR HER. “I’m going to work very hard. That’s all I can promise you.”

    Trump said, “Regrettably we found that China has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election, coming up in November against my administration. They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade, and we are winning on trade. We are winning at every level. We don’t want them to meddle or interfere in our upcoming election.”

    Trump has found his scapegoat if Democrats take back the House and Senate in November. Trump is going to claim that the Chinese helped the Democrats win because they were losing on trade. The reality is that Trump’s trade war is hurting America more than China. Prices are rapidly increasing and potentially millions of workers could lose their jobs due to the trade war. Farmers are worried about losing their farms, and Trump is claiming victory at the UN.

    “My dad had the expression. … He’d say, ‘Joey there’s no sense on dying on a small cross. If you’re going to die, make it a big one.’ Well, my Republican colleagues don’t want to die on a small cross.”
