Americans have more confidence in the leaders of France, Japan and Germany to do the right thing regarding world affairs than they have in U.S. President Donald Trump, a Pew Research Center survey found earlier this year.

Majorities in the U.S. view France’s President Emmanuel Macron, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel with confidence, while about half are confident that Trump will do the right thing internationally.

Ahem, quite a difference between Trump’s opinion and everyone else.

Majorities in the U.S. view French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and German Chancellor Angela Merkel with confidence, while about half (48%) are confident that Trump will do the right thing internationally.

Still, Americans are more likely than others around the world to have confidence in Trump: Across 25 other surveyed nations, a median of just 27% have confidence in the U.S. president.
