This makes me a little sick to my stomach. I believe the sheep of this country are going to ruin it for everyone.

Too late. They already elected a dumb TV game show host as president. There's very little they could do that would do more damage to the country.

It's an international poll with respondents from 11 countries...I imagine the other 10 are higher...

In the most recent survey, government gained the most trust in six of the 11 markets surveyed, including the UK (up 24 points), Canada (20 points), Germany (19 points), and South Korea (16 points). In the US it gained only six points.
caveat:
Quote:
In the US, the government gained less trust than governments in many other large economies—only 6 percentage points compared to 24 in the UK or 19 in Germany. Respondents also rated its performance lower than many others, but not as low as Japan’s.

Words and dumb questions, do not damage a country. His actual policies have helped this country. But maybe you can tell us what he has actually
"Done" that hurts this country.

Do you mean other than covering up and lying about the threat of the coronavirus for over a month instead of urgently ramping up our testing capabilities and PPE production, resulting in tens of thousands of dead Americans?

Do you mean other than putting his totally unqualified son-in-law in charge of half a dozen critical government efforts, including the procurement of medical supplies and development of a virus?

Sorry, but Trump was listening to the illustrious Tony Fauci.

I know you think Trump is a brilliant scientist, but Fauci was down playing this, while you thought Trump should have known better.

Maybe instead you should research why this virus spread around the world so fast, and who will be making billions when billions will be vaccinated.

As far as Trump's son-in law, what has he done to ruin the world? Did he let the virus out?

Hold on. I want proof that Obama was a TV game show host, or else it's just opinion.

What are the dates when Trump supposedly lied and covered up the threat of the Corona virus?

Weren't you one of the ones who was bitching about Trump restricting travel to China back in January of this year.....?

The numbers of reported deaths from this virus have been bogus from day one....

Glad to see that Donald is trying to get people back to work and get this country up running on all cylinders soon....
