US President Donald Trump is still doing better than his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in his own country says Pew

People around the world have more confidence in Russian President Vladimir Putin handling world affairs than in his USA counterpart Donald Trump, a Pew Research Centre survey showed.

In 22 of the 37 countries surveyed, including Germany, Sweden, France and Mexico, Putin gets a better approval rate than Trump. People had more confidence in Mr Trump in 13 countries, including the UK, India and Israel.

Even if the Canadians do not have confidence in the Russian president and that it considers that the authorities can not guarantee the protection of civil liberties, they do not see Russia as a threat.

Half of Greeks surveyed said they had confidence in the Russian President, while only 19 percent said the same of his USA counterpart, according to the poll by the respected Pew Research Center.

These data have, however, were harvested from approximately 40 000 persons from February 16 to may 8, 2017.

Pew said that 23 per cent of the American public had confidence in Mr Putin, while 53 per cent share the same feeling for Mr Trump. Results from the United States, which was also part of the survey, weren't included in this question, and China wasn't polled. A little less than a third of respondents believe that the greatest country in the world is a major threat to the global level. Mr Trump has called the investigation a "witch hunt".

Most Russians believe that Mr Putin has improved their country's standing in the world, Meanwhile, American and Russian views of each other have become less harsh.
