Confidence in US President Donald Trump has declined worldwide, including its allies, but the Philippines continued to show great support.

According to a survey released by Pew Research Center in 37 countries, only a median 22% have confidence in Trump.

The survey also said that 74% have little to no confidence with the American leadership. Spain has only 7%, and Mexico has 5%.

“He gets consistently low ratings across Latin America and Europe, where medians of only 14% and 18% respectively have confidence in him,” it said.

The greatest supporter of Trump was the Philippines with 69% confidence, the result of the survey shows.

The other countries which also have high confidence in Trump include Vietnam at 58%, Nigeria at 58%, Israel at 56%, and Russia at 53%.

Some of the factors that made him unpopular abroad based on the study were the proposal to build a wall along the US and Mexico border, withdrawing from the Paris climate change accord, and withdrawing the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade agreement.
