❝ Ever since President Donald Trump was voted into office, global confidence in U.S. leadership has plummeted. That’s according to this year’s Global Peace Index.
❝ The 2019 Global Peace Index…showed that while global approval of leadership in Germany, China and Russia has been steadily on the rise since 2016, approval of U.S. leadership has seen a dramatic decline.
In 2016, confidence in U.S. leadership was at 45 percent, but fell below 35 percent by 2017. Since then, Steve Killelea (founder of the institute…which produces the Global Peace Index) said, approval has started to plateau, seeing a subtle uptick. However, confidence levels in U.S. leadership still sit below approval of leadership in both China and Germany.
