Trump, a Critical Threat to Australia’s Interests, Poll Respondents Say

SYDNEY – Forty two percent of Australians consider United States President Donald Trump a critical threat to their country’s interests, according to a poll published on Wednesday.

The annual poll conducted by the Lowy Institute, which tracks Australians’ attitudes towards international affairs, climate change, immigration and democracy, also revealed that 55 percent of the respondents said they trust the United States to “act responsibly in the world,” a six-point drop since 2017.

When asked what were the “critical threats” to Australia’s interests in the next ten years, 66 percent of the respondents said “international terrorism” and an equal number said “North Korea’s nuclear program” while 58 percent said “climate change.”

Forty two percent of Australians perceived Trump’s presidency as a critical threat to their country’s interests while 36 percent believed the “US foreign policies” were a critical threat.

Despite this, 76 percent of Australians considered the alliance between their country and the US either “very” or “fairly” important for Australia’s security while 64 percent believed that Australia should remain close to the US under Trump’s presidency.

With regards to immigration, 54 percent of Australians said that the total number of migrants coming into the country was too high while 41 percent said if Australia was too open to people from all over the world, it risked losing its identity as a nation.
