As Donald Trump’s White House spirals deeper into crisis, the rest of the world seems to be giving up on America’s new president.  

A survey by showed that respondents in 22 out of 36 countries trusted Russian President more than Trump when it comes to handling global affairs. And that includes American allies like Germany, France and Japan. (Trump edged out Putin in the UK, India and Israel.)
