Trump’s rating plummet across the world, except in Macedonia, Israel, Liberia and Belarus


One year after the Donald Trump’s inauguration as America’s new president, his US ratings have plummeted in all countries, except four, including Macedonia, wrote Atlantic magazine in an article called, “What do Israel, Liberia, Belarus and Macedonia have in common?”

The research on the ratings, which Atlantic magazine refers to, was conducted by the Gallup agency in 134 countries in 2017.

Reasons as to why Macedonia finds itself in such company, according to the magazine, can not be found in the White House, but the State Department, or to be exact, the role of Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, Hoyt Yee, in resolving the political crisis and choosing a new government led by Zoran Zaev.

“In Macedonia, where approval in U.S. leadership jumped 15 points after years of decline, the explanation can be found not in the White House, but with the State Department. In May, Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov gave opposition leader Zoran Zaev the mandate to form a new government after months of refusal—a decision that followed the urging of Hoyt Yee, the U.S. deputy secretary of state and from the Obama-era”, writes the Atlantic.
