Ha­ley’s com­ment does not add up for Trump

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

THIS week, it was the turn of Nikki Ha­ley, the US Am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions, to step down.

She gave no rea­son for her exit but de­clared that the rest of the world couldn’t pos­si­bly have more re­spect for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump than it cur­rently does. But, go­ing by the cur­rent polls, it looks like she could not be more wrong.

The stats show that the UK was 79% con­fi­dent that his pre­de­ces­sor, Barack Obama, would do the right thing on world af­fairs. Un­der Trump, it is 22%.

Ger­many’s trust in the pre­vi­ous US leader stood at 86% but for Trump it’s 11%. France, too, has re­turned sim­i­lar fig­ures. With her grasp of num­bers, God for­bid Ha­ley moves over to the Trea­sury.
