Trump Boasts About Poor EU Approval Ratings: ‘Of Course They’re Low,’ I’m Making Them Pay ‘Big Price’ on Trade

President Donald Trump has poor approval ratings abroad — and he’s wearing them as a badge of honor.

In a pair of Monday afternoon Tweets, the president boasted that his low international approval numbers are the result of trade policies he’s implemented which have resulted in other nations paying a “big price” to do business with the United Stated.

The Fake News Media has been talking about recent approval ratings of me by countries around the world, including the European Union, as being very low,” Trump wrote. I say of course they’re low – because for the first time in 50 years I am making them pay a big price for doing business with America. Why should they like me?

“But I still like them!” The president added.

According to a Pew Research Center survey published Oct. 1, 27 percent of worldwide respondents have confidence in Trump, while 70 percent said they have no confidence in the U.S. president.
