Merkel trumps Trump in global confidence

Pew Research Center

A study by the influential Pew Research Center has found that confidence by citizens around the world in the leadership skills of German Chancellor Angela Merkel decisively outweighs that in US President Donald Trump. While 42 percent of respondents in 37 countries, including most G20 member countries, said they had confidence in Merkel’s governing, only 22 percent stated they did so for Trump.
