is doing under the Trump administration. Gore said during an appearance on NBC's Today show, "We've never had a president who's deliberately made decisions the effect of which is to tear down America's standing in the world." He mentioned Trump's withdrawal from the Paris accord as an example, noting the climate change is currently one of the biggest challenges. Gore added that the president has also "undermined our alliances such as NATO and hurt our standing in the world."

However, among the 1,001 American adults who were surveyed for the poll July 10-13, the president’s leadership on the world stage and his ability to negotiate with foreign powers were also called into question..
