Germans think Trump is more dangerous to world peace than Kim Jong Un and Putin: survey

A new YouGov survey found Germans consider President Trump more dangerous to world peace than North Korean Chairman Kim Jong Un or Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the German broadcaster DW.

Asked to rank the greatest threat to world peace between Trump, Kim, Putin, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Chinese President Xi Jinping, 41 percent named Trump, compared to Kim at 17 percent, Khamenei and Putin at 8 percent and Xi at 7 percent.

Pollsters surveyed 2,000 Germans for the poll between Dec. 16 and 18.

The results were similar to a YouGov poll published in July 2018, although the earlier survey did not include Xi or Khamenei as options.

The poll comes after a contentious NATO summit in London with several European allies, during which Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was filmed apparently joking about the lengths of Trump’s joint press conferences in a conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emanuel Macron.
