The presumptive Republican nominee has made “America First” the cornerstone of his foreign policy and the survey reveals that a mere 9 percent of Europeans have confidence in him doing the right thing on the world stage. Trump’s rival in the race for the White House, Hillary Clinton, has far greater support among Europeans with 59 percent confident the former secretary of state would do the right thing regarding world affairs.
Broken down on a country by country basis, Pew found that Swedes are especially critical of Trump with 92 percent of them reporting they have no confidence in him doing the right thing in world affairs. Outside Europe, the pattern repeated itself with 87 percent of Australians and Canadians also holding the same view. In China, people are slightly more confident about Trump’s foreign policy with 22 percent indicating they have faith in him making the correct decisions.
