The 29 countries that approve of Trump over Obama



US President Donald Trump has proven a divisive leader not only at home, but also abroad.
Polling organisation Gallup asked groups of about 1,000 people in more than 100 countries if they approved of the president's leadership in 2016, when Barack Obama was president, and in 2017, after Mr Trump came to power.
In the vast majority of countries, approval ratings fell after Mr Trump was elected. There were large falls among traditional allies like Canada (down 40 per cent) and the UK (down 26 per cent). Australians approve of Mr Trump 31 per cent less than they did Mr Obama.
But approvals climbed in 29 countries, including Liberia (up 17 per cent), Israel (up 14 per cent) and Russia (up 6 per cent).

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
