In London last week, I met a Nigerian man who succinctly expressed the reaction of much of the world to America these days.First, there is the sheer shock at what is going on, the bizarre candidacy of Donald Trump, which has been followed by an utterly chaotic presidency.According to a recent Pew Research Center survey of 37 countries, people around the world increasingly believe that they can make do without America. Trump's presidency has made the U.S. something worse than just feared or derided. On the question of confidence in various leaders to do the right thing regarding world affairs, China's Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin got slightly higher marks than Trump.Trump's approval rating in Mexico is 5 percent, his lowest in the world.Sixty-four percent of the people surveyed expressed a favorable view of America at the end of the Obama presidency.Amid the parochialism, ineptitude and sheer disarray of the Trump presidency, the post-American world is coming to fruition much faster than I ever expected.
