The White House has had a very tense past few days when it comes to foreign diplomacy.

There was a very awkward meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and officials in the United Kingdom called President Donald Trump's statement that their intelligence agency had helped to wiretap him "ridiculous."

Turns out most of the public believes Trump is not respected by world leaders.

A new Huffington Post/YouGov survey found that less than one quarter of Americans think Trump is respected by international leaders.

Just 24% of those polled say leaders of other countries around the world have respect for Trump, while 55% say they don't think leaders have much respect for him. Another 21% say they aren't sure.

Two months into his job as President, Trump's respect by foreign leaders is way low compared to America's last two presidents. Two months into the presidency Barack Obama and George W. Bush were considered respected by international leaders with a 67% and 49% approval respectively.
