70% of Israelis have confidence in Trump and United States


According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, about 70% of Israelis have confidence that US President Donald Trump will do the right thing in world affairs when compared to other countries. Not only are Israelis among those who have the most confidence in President Trump, they also are among those who gave the most favorable ratings to the United States, as 83% see the US positively. Divided according to demographics, 94% of Israeli Jews view the United States positively, and only 37% of Israeli Arabs share the same positive sentiment. Among Israelis that have confidence in the president, 74% support his decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and another 66% agree with his withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. However, while there is a general support in Israel for several of President Trump’s policies, 59% disapprove his decision of pulling out of the international climate accords. Nevertheless, confidence in Trump’s policies are more negative almost universally throughout much of the rest of the world, and particularly in much Western Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. In  Europe, Trump received an approval rating of 32% (UK), 20% (France), 12% (Germany), 21% (Spain) and 32% in Italy. Only 8% of Mexicans and 11% of Turks have confidence in Trump.  The poll was conducted prior to the recent tensions with Iran, and the missile attacks that struck two US bases in Iraq.
