Unlike other countries, Israel supports Trump, US

I was in Spain all week and one question that I was asked was, “Do Israelis support Trump?” The answer is, of course!

Bucking a global trend of opposition to the United States, Israel supports America far more than most other countries— 83 percent compared to 54 percent worldwide, according to a Pew Research Survey on “Global Attitudes & Trends.”

Some 70 percent of Israelis expressed confidence in U.S. President Donald Trump, compared to 64 percent of the public in the 33 countries surveyed who do not have confidence in the American president.

Believe it or not, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese Xi Jinping had lower negative ratings than Trump. Putin had 57 percent express no confidence in him and Jinping 43 percent.

The Pew survey included respondents from 33 countries and was conducted among 37,000 people between May and October 2019.

In Israel, 74 percent endorsed his decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and 66 percent supported his decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal.

The survey, published last week, revealed a massive gap between Jewish and Arab Israelis though: 94 percent of Jews view America in a positive light, while only 37 percent of Arabs do.

Outside of Israel, views of the U.S. are far more negative in the Middle East. For example, in Turkey, the Pew survey showed that only one in five respondents has a favorable opinion of America.

Pew noted that Trump has been less favorably received than former President Barack Obama in nearly all nations surveyed except for Israel.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
