While most countries around the world saw sharp declines in the level of confidence in the White House since the transfer of power on January 20th from the Obama administration to the Trump administration, Israelis seem to be more optimistic about American leadership since President Trump took office.

According to a Pew Research Center survey published on Monday, most countries around the world saw significant declines in the number of people who said they felt confident in the US president and his ability to “do the right thing regarding world affairs”.

Western and Northern European countries, for instance, which had given President Obama high marks at the end of his presidency in 2016, showed some of the most dramatic declines.

In France, for instance, where 84% said they felt confidence in President Obama in 2016, just 14% said they were confident about President Trump’s leadership in 2017. The decline was even steeper in Germany, where the level fell from 86% in 2016 to 11% in 2017.

In Spain, 75% expressed confidence in Obama in 2016, but just 7% felt confident in President Trump a year later. Among Swedes, 93% said they were confident in Obama’s leadership, compared to just 10% who said the same about Trump’s. In the UK, 22% said they were confident in President Trump, compared to 79% who were confident in President Obama.

Trump addressed NATO shortly after his inauguration, warned them to increase defense spending and chastised member countries for not paying their way, leaving the US to foot the bill.

Outside Western and Northern Europe, the drop off in confidence was less marked, often due to declines in President Obama’s own numbers towards the end of his second term.

In India, 40% say they are confident in President Trump, compared to 58% who said they were confident in Obama in 2016 – a 16 point drop from 2015.

In Nigeria, confidence in the US president fell just five points during the Obama-Trump transition, from 63% to 58%.

Middle Eastern states, which gave the White House low marks under Obama, showed even less confidence in Trump. Jordanian confidence in the president fell just 5 points, from 14% in 2015 to 9% in 2017, while Lebanese respondents showed a sharped decline, from 36% confidence in 2015 to 15% in 2017.

The relatively low figures in the Middle East correlate with overall low favorability numbers for the US in the region, a pattern which predates the Trump administration. In Jordan, for example, just 15% said they have a favorable view of the US – an increase since the Obama administration. In 2015, just 14% said they had a favorable view. In fact, the figure has remained mired in the mid-teens for the past five years. Since the year 2000, no more than 25% of Jordanians ever expressed a favorable view of the US, and at times, America’s favorability sank to as low as 1%.

One notable exception, however, to the low marks both the US and President Trump received in the Middle East is Israel.

While nearly all countries saw declines in the level of confidence in the White House, Israelis became more confident, with 56% saying they had confidence in President Trump, compared to just 49% who said the same about Obama in 2015. Israeli Jews were more likely than Israeli Arabs to express confidence in President Trump, with 64% of Jews saying they were confident in his leadership, compared to just 25% of Arabs.

If taken separately, Israeli Jews showed the second highest level of confidence in the Trump White House, after the Philippines at 69%.

America’s favorability level also remains high in Israel at 81% compared to 81% in 2015, 72% in 2011, 71% in 2009, and 78% in 2007. Only the Vietnamese showed a higher level of support for the US, at 84%, compared to 78% in 2015.

Among Israeli Jews, the numbers are even higher, with 89% saying they have a favorable view of the US, compared to just 51% of Israeli Arabs.

Israelis are also among the most supportive nationality worldwide of President Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico. Forty-two percent of Israelis said they backed the plan to build a border wall, compared to 44% who said they disapproved. Only Jordanians showed a higher level of support, with 44% backing the wall and 46% opposing it.

In Europe, opposition to the border wall plan hit the low to mid-90s in some states. In Sweden 93% say they oppose the border wall proposal, compared to 93% in Germany, 91% in the Netherlands and Spain, 90% in France, and 90% in the UK. Shortly after his inauguration, Trump said that Europe is a “horrible mess” due to its immigration poicies.

Aside from Israel, confidence in American leadership rose only in one other country: Russia. While confidence climbed 7% in Israel, in surged by 42 points in Russia, from 11% in 2015 to 53% in 2017 – the highest level on record since the survey began asking the question in 2001.

Support for the US also climbed significantly during the transition, rising from 15% in 2015 to 41% in 2017, the highest level since 2013, when 51% of Russians said they had a favorable view of the US.

About urielperez

His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world Uriel has done close to 500 interviews in Israel Jerusalem, and many more to come our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism .Israel is facing many challenges and dangers, and has been for a very long time. There is, an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, to discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and its state, in its own land!. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign.This propaganda campaign by the Arab League - both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America - has caused to Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism Israel has suffered many terror attacks from terrorist .Israel should not bow down to any pressure imposed by the USA the EU. the Quartet nor the UN The current Obama administration continues to work behind the scenes by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda as I call it. The Obama administration is trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past .Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley are at the negotiating table and if the so called Palestinians obtain Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat Haroe'eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv'at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot, outside Hevron. they can easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel and Israel will be left without defensible borders . We say no land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Barrack Hussein Obama has a hidden agenda against Israel. Israel will face many difficult days ahead See Psalms 83' as we have seen what happened with Gush Katif were almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure , now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same consequence .More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel over 11,000, just to Sderot by Islamist extremist who want the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorist who are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah.Iran Lebanon Hezbollah Syria want the total destruction of Israel and now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. The Moslem/ Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” nearly 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews. No people or nation ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land there is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one have cl...aim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there See Quote from Quran', Death to the enemies of Allah Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.Al-Maidah The Table 5:33-34 This is what radical Islam say's about us Jews' "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). Judea and Samaria also faces many challenges in the days to come as Abbu Massen will try to pressure the entire world and US President Barrack Hussein Obama the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace we saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed more terror against Israel . Abbu Massen the PA. leader approached the United Nations this past November 2012 and has ask them to declare them a recognized nation within Israel known borders.
