MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Almost a half of US citizens do not trust President Donald Trump in holding negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a new poll revealed on Sunday.
According to a poll conducted for ABC News and the Washington Post, two out of three respondents said they do not trust the president much when asked about Trump-Putin talks, including 48 percent who did not trust "at all." One third of the respondents, however, said that they trust their leader "a great deal" or "a good amount" in any interstate negotiations, according to the poll.
Trump's public approval rating lowered to 36 percent from April's 42 percent, the poll showed.
The survey was conducted on July 10-13 with 1,001 adult respondents interviewed by phone.
