What President Trump has accomplished in his first year in office

"The global median who do not have an opinion about USA leadership in 2017 (23 percent) is similar to the 25 percent in the a year ago of the Obama presidency".

"The Republicans did get a tax bill passed, a significant tax bill in December, and that was a major accomplishment for them, so that is something that has put them on a better track", said John Fortier of the Bipartisan Policy Center, a Washington research group. Republican senators John McCain and Jeff Flake both excoriated Trump this week for discrediting the free press and being unwilling to accept criticism, adding to the broad scrutiny of Trump's persistent struggles with the truth. A new Economist/YouGov poll that was also released Friday showed every adult member of the Trump clan with "underwater favourability" ratings.

And U.S. leadership approval has hit an all-time low - one year into Trump's presidency. "With its stable approval rating of 41 percent, Germany has replaced the U.S.as the top-rated global power in the world". The new figures mark the first time since 2007 that more global residents disapproved of U.S. leadership than approved of it (the figures were equivalent in 2008, each at 34 per cent). Mrs. Trump is at a 47% favorable rating, while the President's approval number stands at 40%, according to the CNN poll conducted by SSRS.

Africa as a whole remains the bright spot for USA leadership approval, as it has been for the past decade.

Trump's first year in office has aroused particular intense antipathy.

ESPN's Kiper Jr. on Barkley: 'You're hoping he can be like Fournette'
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound speedster announced more than a week ago his intentions to enter the 2018 NFL Draft as an underclassman. On Thursday, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr released his first 2018 mock draft (subscription required).

The result comes after a separate Gallup survey found that Trump reaches the first anniversary of his inauguration with the lowest average approval rating of any elected president in his first year. Overall, 67 percent of Israelis approve of US leadership.

Sixty-one percent of people think Trump is doing more to divide the country than unite it, while 32 percent of people think the opposite.

Even now, Americans expect Barack Obama will be viewed more favorably by history than they say Donald Trump will be.

Figures from Gallup's historic polling show something similar.

As much as it might be personal against Trump, those polled might just be following Democratic leadership, which has been successful in their opposition to the president but not quite as effective on enacting policy, according to the Post.
