French half or Islamic half? More than half of French people think US no longer a ‘trusted ally

A survey of more than 1,000 people conducted this week found a 33 percent drop in the number who believe the United States remains a “trusted ally” of France under President Donald Trump since a similar survey in 2014.

France may be America’s oldest ally, but more than half of French people no longer consider the United States a reliable partner, according to a new survey released Wednesday.

Just 44 percent of those polled said the United States remained a “trusted ally” under President Donald Trump – a 33-point plunge since a similar survey was conducted in May 2014 when former president Barack Obama was still in the White House.
