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).

The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In
