A new survey carried out recently shows that Nigeria is one of the countries in the world where President Trump has a high approval rating, according to a CNBC report.
According to the survey, which polled 36,923 people in 32 countries from May 18 to October 2, 2019, 58% of Nigerians are confident that the US president will do the right thing regarding world affairs.
Other countries whose Nationals gave the president a high job approval ratings are Philippines, Israel, Kenya, Nigeria and India.
Apart from the five countries listed above, President Donald Trump receives largely negative reviews from people surveyed around the world, according to the report by the Pew Research Center, but views of the U.S. itself remain mostly favorable.
As a matter of fact, across the 32 countries surveyed by the non-partisan Washington-based think tank, a median of 64% said they do not “have confidence in Trump to do the right thing in world affairs,” while just 29% expressed confidence in the American leader.
Anti-Trump sentiment is especially common in Western Europe where at least three-in-four people in Germany, Sweden, France, Spain and the Netherlands stating that they lack confidence in Trump. In Mexico too, a country that Trump has previously disparaged, 89% of those surveyed said they do not have confidence in him.
Trump’s popularity in African countries comes as a surprise especially after he reportedly referred to African countries as shithole countries.
