if anyone was taking bets my money would be on that none of the world leaders asked this question of trump and it's just more of his fantasy BS.

How does President Trump's approval ratings compare to those of other G7 country leaders, who he is meeting with in France this weekend? Actually he is more popular than 5 out of 6, with the only exception being Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe. Here is the list, followed by an article:
48.8% - Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe
43.3% - American President Donald Trump
41.0% - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
32.0% - German Chancellor Angela Merkel
31.0% - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
28.0% - French President Emmanuel Macron
Just Resigned Last Week - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte

So President Trump is doing pretty good compared to the rest of this lot.
Oh - when I saw your title, I thought you were going to claim that he was popular among the G7 leaders, which isn't true.

Well, okay, among a bunch of people with low ratings, he may rank second, but let's not pretend that 43% is a rating that implies popularity. Last I heard, he was under 40%, though.

The found myth of Canada will be shattered by identity politics.


The maritimes are lagging economically way behind the rest of Canada and are really cut off politically and geographically from anglophone Canada.



Canada's infrastructure outside of the major cities is woefully underdeveloped.



In 25 years, it will seem self-evident that Canada was not going to last. Putting a Canadian flag on backpack when going overseas does not solve the fundamental problems plaguing Canada.

Well I take my knowledge of Canada and Canadians over yours any day. I was born in Canada and have lived here my entire life. I lived for several years in each four different provinces, including Quebec. I was actually living in Montreal during the FLQ crisis in 1970.

I have no idea how those in power have seen the world (do they even talk about the world?) and I very much doubt I have seen the world the way they have done.

Hope he gets reelected to continue his policies.
Trump has made our country a laughingstock and no longer the greatest country and the worlds leader.

Trump not so popular at G-7...
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/25/w...g7-allies.html
But behind the scenes at the annual gathering of some of the world’s leading powers, President Trump still found himself at odds with his counterparts on Sunday over issues like trade, climate change, North Korea, Russia and Iran.
Ever so gingerly, as if determined not to rouse the American’s well-known temper, the other Group of 7 leaders sought to nudge him toward their views on the pressing issues of the day, or at least register their differences — while making sure to wrap them in a French crepe of flattery, as they know he prefers.

Yuptag, Day of Yup, what is it to be "portrayed to you by those in power?" What if you are told that "news is fake" by those in power, is that something that is portrayed to you?

"Separate from Canada" means what? Other country?

Canada is a mosaic of cultures with many languages and eye colours. No one is forced, no one is restricted.

Have you visited Canada's most famous building? It is tiny house, a bit like a micro-apartment, with a round circle cut into a wooden seat. That's where Canada puts fundamental problems plaguing Canada. Jump in, share, participate.

Interesting that Abe is the most popular by far as Japan is the only one of these countries not facing massive influx of migrants and multiculturalism and all the economic, educational, criminal, and cultural fall out it causes.

Last I read, Rasmussen polled landline phones rather than cell phones, so they are getting their information from those who still answer landlines.

Not sure who is polling leaders of other nations, or what methods they are using.

But to contend that Trump is one of the more popular leaders at this G7 conference is ludicrous.
