U.S. Image Suffers as Publics Around World Question Trump’s Leadership
America still wins praise for its people, culture and civil liberties
Although he has only been in office a few months, Donald Trump’s presidency has had a major impact on how the world sees the United States. Trump and many of his key policies are broadly unpopular around the globe, and ratings for the U.S. have declined steeply in many nations. According to a new Pew Research Center survey spanning 37 nations, a median of just 22% has confidence in Trump to do the right thing when it comes to international affairs. This stands in contrast to the final years of Barack Obama’s presidency when a median of 64% expressed confidence in Trump’s predecessor to direct America’s role in the world.
Today saw the launch of a report from a non-partisan organization PEW and I will put a link on my website on Donald Trumps Administration and President Trump’s appeal around the world
First I have to say, I am NOT surprised and second why should he or America care
Let’s tackle the second first.
Why should anyone care well I assume that the gravitas of America just like an other Country is based on outside perception
If that perception is one of distrust, dislike etc etc you can only be left with one outcome.
Which is NOT good for America’s prestige in the world
However, that being said let’s look at the first point, that I am not surprised
The biggest problem for the world outside of the USA is in my opinion is understanding the USA
America is a very proud Country and rightly so, they have done so much for the world and depending on your point of view some good so not but through all that America has done is one thread
That is FREEDOM and FREEDOM and belief that every citizen has the god given right to have it, is that so bad.
Now as for perceptions, this is what people around the world and some YES inside of America need to understand
President Donald Trump ran for one reason, YES to make America great again but beyond that to stop the rot of disbelief that Americans had bread into them for many decades that America was NOT special NOT different and to put quite simply HE (President Trump) does NOT agree with that view
Now finally I need to address perceptions themselves. Where do those come from well obviously from the media be print in the old fashioned way or TV Radio to a lesser extent outside of America and of course the new media I
Speak of course about the Internet without which this that I am doing would not be possible
The so-called MSM are embedded in their views in America, they are NOT impartial same with NEWSPAPERS who are fighting for their very existence and more importantly their relevance
They believe in the UN and in my case Agenda2030 climate change that borders don’t matter that we can all work out our grievances at table in the UN that America is just one Country on an inevitable decline
Multiculturalism is the way forward borders don’t matter redistribution is key police are evil GUNS must be taken away from citizens Oh terrorists are just misunderstood, unemployed teenagers
And we must find them jobs and apologize for plundering their home countries and the world of natural resources to maintain our evil lifestyle
Now I hope you are getting the picture I could go on but this would be an hour
I can sum this up with one phrase
“Control the media control the message” and “control the education of a population control their views”
So it is not surprising to me that the world has this view but let’s see what they think in 4 years very different I think
