The Guardian: Europeans’ trust in US as world leader collapses during pandemic

Many citizens appalled by Donald Trump’s handling of coronavirus crisis, study finds.

The coronavirus crisis has caused a dramatic deterioration in the European public perception of the US, extensive new polling reveals.

More than 60% of respondents in Germany, France, Spain, Denmark and Portugal said they had lost trust in the United States as a global leader.

A report based on the survey’s findings argues that the shock of the pandemic has “traumatised” European citizens, leaving them feeling “alone and vulnerable”.


WNU Editor: Details on this poll are here …. Together in trauma: Europeans and the world after covid-19 (European Council on Foreign Relations). What’s my take of this poll. The U.S. is not alone in not being trusted. Most Europeans do not trust their own EU institutions and fellow EU member states.
