Mr. Trump made building a wall on the southern border a critical plank of his presidency.

The majority of people around the world have little confidence that President Trump will do the "right thing" in world affairs, according to a new poll published by the Pew Research Center.

However, the metrics have improved somewhat for the president since a similar survey two years ago, increasing to 29 percent expressing confidence from 22 percent.

The survey looked at public opinion in 33 nations and was conducted among 37,000 people between May and October 2019.

In an earlier version of the survey, which was released several months after Trump took office in January 2017, less than 30% of respondents expressed confidence in the president's ability to do the right thing on global affairs.

The Russian leader widened his favorability gap with Trump from the previous Pew survey released in late 2018 by a percentage point.

"Overall, favourable views of the USA are higher than that of confidence in the US president", Poushter said.

This lack of confidence in Mr Trump's leadership corresponded with the world viewing the USA in a less positive light than before, although 54 per cent still held generally favourable attitudes towards America.

"Trump receives the highest negative ratings among the five leaders, though ratings for Putin and Xi are also on balance negative", the authors said. His policies on climate change were particularly frowned upon in Europe, where nine out of 10 people disapproved in France, Germany, Sweden and Spain.

In past surveys of former US presidents, Obama had a median of 64% in those expressing confidence he would do the right thing in the final years of his administration.

Specific Trump administration policies were also notably unpopular, with large numbers disapproving of USA tariffs and fees on goods from other countries (68 percent) and the US withdrawal from worldwide climate change agreements (66 percent). About 54% of global respondents said that they had a favorable opinion of the United States, with particularly high ratings in Poland, the Philippines, South Korea and Israel.

Withdrawn from the Iran nuclear deal.

They also showed more approval for his tariffs, despite the overall global opinion of the wall and trade war being sharply negative, the survey found.

The president was viewed negatively by 89% of people in the country that the president claimed in 2015 was sending its "most unwanted people" including "criminals, drug dealers, rapists" to immigrate to the United States.

Mr Trump's support in the Philippines is less surprising, considering his praise for his Philippine counterpart Rodrigo Duterte.

However, the USA still remains relatively popular across the world.

And in India, which has seen a surge in right-wing Hindu nationalism under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, 56 percent viewed Trump with confidence. Mr Trump ranked the lowest among them in a confidence poll, with 64 per cent saying they had no confidence in him, followed by Mr Putin (57 per cent) and Mr Xi (43 per cent). The Trump administration also sold 12 USA military aircraft to Nigeria in a reversal of an Obama-era policy. In Brazil, too, under the far-right government of President Jair Bolsonaro, only 28 percent viewed the USA leader that way.

In 18 nations, those on the ideological right-wing viewed the president more favorably, the study's authors reported.

"In almost all nations where trends are available, Trump receives lower ratings than his predecessor", said the report.
