US Citizens Positive Economic Value, Negative Trump Value

Nearly two-thirds of Americans have a good view of the American economy, according to a new poll. But gave a negative view on the performance of President Donald Trump in the care of the economy and a number of other issues.

In his latest poll, Quinnipiac University said 63 percent of voters considered the American economy "excellent" or "good", while 34 percent said " too good "or even" bad. "

Three-quarters of voters describe their own financial situation as" excellent "or" good ", while another quarter have a negative view of their personal finances.

The poll says that voters, a comparison of 51 versus 44 percent, does not approve of the way of economic handling by President Trump. With a margin of 45 per cent to 43 per cent, voters say that President Barack Obama deserves more praise than Trump for the good state of the American economy. The unemployment rate of 4.1 percent is currently at its lowest level in 17 years, and the stock market index is at its highest point.

Overall, the Quinnipiac survey says voters with a 59 to 37 comparison disagree with Trump's performance at the White House in 11 month of his presidency. This is almost identical to the results of a poll conducted by Gallup, with a ratio of 59 versus 36.

Commonly, it is said, the American people do not think Trump is honest, lacks good leadership skills, no matter the average American fate, cold and do not have the same value with them. But Quinnipiac says with a comparison of 55 against 40, Americans view Trump as strong, and with a lead of 52 to 45, arguing that he is intelligent.

The poll gave a negative view to Trump for the handling of foreign policy, terrorism, immigration, health care and taxation policies, as Congress prepares to approve a $ 1.5 trillion tax cut for the next decade. This is Trump's first victory in the legislature.

Quinnipiac says that with a 50-46 lead, the Trump voters must resign after allegations of sexually harassing more than 12 women in the 2016 presidential election campaign. Trump repeatedly said the allegations were unfounded . The White House added voters knew about the allegations when they voted, but still decided to vote. [sp/ii]

Trump Recognition Problem Jerusalem The Capital of Israel Tuai Negative Reactions

US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel draws criticism in the Arab world, in Europe and other parts of the world.

In his speech on Wednesday (7/12), Trump described his decision as a long-standing move delayed after previous presidents failed to fulfill the US pledge against Israel for 22 years. But the status of Jerusalem is a fierce issue that many countries should negotiate between Israel and the Palestinians.

As expected, Palestine and its supporters across the world are angry at the US president's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"Trump encourages extremism religious beliefs here and abroad and he blows hard on the prospects for peace in the region, "said Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR.

There is concern that this Trump move undermines the chances of a two-state solution in the Middle East UN Secretary General Antonio Gutteres said the status of Jerusalem should be resolved through direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, reiterating that unilateral steps could undermine peace efforts.

"I will do everything within my authority to bring Israeli and Palestinian leaders back to the negotiations which means, "he explained.

Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said Trump's move disqualified America as one of the players in the Middle East peace process. "It violates international law, human rights, and converts the conflict between Palestine and Israel from political issues into religious issues," he explained.A number of analysts agreed, Trump's decision hinted at the end of the US-led peace process.

"The Palestinian people will not allow this . I think, whoever the Palestinian leader who seeks to agree on it will completely fall in the eyes of his people. I think this is the end of the American-led peace process, "explains Khaled Elgindy of the Brookings Institution.

Nathan Diament, chair of the Orthodox Jewish advocacy group in Washington told VOA, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will help revive the peace process.

The announcement from President Trump today and the beginning of the process of moving the embassy sends a very important message to Palestine and others: if you keep going, things will not stay the same, you just lose ground. So, for your sake, first of all, find ways to stop things that are destroying the peace process. "

A US law of 1995 planned to move the United States Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but so far all presidents before Trump took steps to postpone the plan for security reasons [ab/uh]
