It is becoming increasingly clear that Donald Trump is alone in his view that the first 100 days of his presidency have been anything but a massive failure.
According to the latest Fox News poll, a majority of the country is already eager to vote him out office, with 55 percent saying they will definitely or probably cast their ballot for Trump’s opponent in the 2020 presidential election.
By a massive 23-point margin, Americans also believe the new president is becoming an international embarrassment, with 52 percent of respondents saying the U.S. is now less respected around the globe.
It’s no surprise the world is laughing as Trump proves himself to be incapable of conducting himself on the world stage.
After all, he’s spent his first 100 days alienating our allies – Mexico, Canada, Australia, and Germany, among others – while emboldening and provoking our adversaries – North Korea, Iran, and Russia.
Ultimately, it’s not stunning that a majority want Trump out of office and feel he has turned the U.S. into the laughingstock of the world. What is shocking is that the number of Americans who feel this way isn’t higher.
He’s also failing on what was arguably the main objective of his candidacy, and now presidency – bringing change to Washington:

More numbers from this devastating poll as the Trump presidency approaches the all-important 100-day mark:
- 53 percent aren’t satisfied with the way things are going
- 51 percent discouraged about the next four years
- 48 percent – a plurality – disapprove of his job performance overall
If Trump can’t even turn to Fox News for an optimistic view of his presidency, then where can he turn?
With nearly 100 days of failure under his belt, it’s clear that a majority of the American people have already given up on the Trump presidency – and for good reason. It’s been a complete catastrophe.
And since Trump is unwilling to change his behavior or react to the realities of being a grown-up president, it’s not likely to get any better over the next four years.
