Besides being laughed at by world leaders at the United Nations, and proclaiming that because of his leadership, America is “respected again” in the world,  statistics show that President Donald Trump does not rank well globally among other leaders.

According to a poll from Pew Reseach, results show that Trump’s “international image remains poor.” Out of 25 countries surveyed, only 27 percent of respondents said they had confidence in Trump’s ability to “do the right thing regarding world affairs.”

Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel received 52 percent of the vote. The same survey also revealed that Trump lost support among Russians who are not as confident in his leadership.

Trump’s ranking among Russians sank from 53 percent to 19 percent. Overall, the study shows that with the 25 countries sampled, 70 percent of participants said they lack confidence in Trump.
