Is USA More Respected Now, Or Was It During Obama's Reign?

As far as I've read or watched the news from any foreign media, I've majorly encountered that they extraordinarily appreciated President Obama and disparaged President Trump using terms like a bozo and a national disrespect. Try Google searching for Trump toons England, or France, or Germany, or Japan, or any other nation you can consider and see what comes up.By this, some of the Trump supporters might be thinking - 'Oh shut-up! that's how it goes, famous people always face criticism so does Trump.' Well, well, dear followers! As I see there's just the opposite case which is obvious from the present President's tweets.During Obama's reign: The world saw a resurgence in economy and peace as it recuperated from Bush-era banking "deregulation" and militarism which, as anyone might expect, just profited USA weapon ventures.During Trump's reign so far: Australia's hatred. Mexico? - Oh! We're an open joke now. Russia? Trump is the BEST outcome comprehensible to bring relevance back to Russia and to destabilize NATO and the western power base that has checked Russia since WW2.Like these, there exist so many ups & downs that the country has faced during the rule of President Obama & Trump and the ways they both have dealt with the pitfalls.Let's try and figure it out.

Just after Obama's oath-taking

After entering the office, Obama concentrated on dealing with the global financial crises and the resulting Great Recession, which was viewed as the most noticeably worst monetary downturn since the great depression. On February 17, 2009, Obama marked into law a $787 billion financial stimulus bill that included spending for health care, infrastructure, education, various tax breaks and incentives, and direct assistance to individuals. This marks the beginning of a great presidential era in the U.S.

Execution Of Osama bin Laden

The Obama organization propelled a successful operation that brought about the killing of Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, a worldwide Sunni Islamist militant Association which was solely responsible for September 11 attacks and many other terror assaults. That was the appreciable initiative taken under Obama's rule to attack the roots of terrorism.

Growth of Renewable Energy

The Obama administration promoted the growth of renewable energy and solar power generation tripled during his tenure. Obama also issued numerous energy efficiency standards, contributing to a flattening of growth of the total U.S. energy demand. 

Climate change agreement

At the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference, about each nation on the planet agreed to a historic climate deal in which all pledged to lower their greenhouse gas emissions. The Paris Agreement made a widespread accounting system for emissions, requiring each country to monitor its emissions & create a plan to reduce its emissions.


In 2009, the Obama administration established United States Cyber Command, which is armed forces sub-unified command responsible for defending the military against cyber attacks. Sony Pictures suffered a major hack in 2014, which the US government alleges originated from North Korea in retaliation for the release of the film The Interview. In 2015, Obama declared cyber-attacks on the US a national emergency.

LGBT Rights

Amid his reign, Obama, Congress, and the Supreme Court all added to a colossal development of LGBT rights. In May 2012, Obama turned into the first sitting president to bolster same-sex marriage, just after VP Joe Biden had also expressed support for the same.

Immigration Policy

From the earliest point of his Presidency, Obama upheld comprehensive immigration reform, including a pathway to citizenship for many immigrants illicitly living in the U.S. In 2012, Obama implemented the DACA policy, which protected roughly 700,000 illegal immigrants from deportation.

Just after Trump's oath-taking

Amid the 2016 crusade, Trump proposed $1 trillion in interests in the framework such as roads, bridges, and airports.One of the Trump organizations' initial activities was to uncertainly suspend a cut in expense rates for home loans that the Unified States Division of Lodging and Urban Advancement (HUD) had declared under the Obama's Presidency. The cut in expense rates would have spared people with lower financial assessments around $500 every year on an ordinary loan.

Ruining Healthcare

Priority for the new president was to scrap Mr Obama's signature healthcare reform, which Mr Trump has called a "complete & total disaster". He guarantees that the enactment will be replaced by new measures in the meantime as it is revoked and that the progressions will come soon.

Climate change is a myth for Trump

Mr Trump once called global warming a hoax. More recently he said, it was “a big scam for a lot of people to make a lot of money”. The new president has pledged to "cancel" the Paris climate agreement, which based on a deal Mr Obama hit with China — despite the fact that the agreement is a multinational accord, which no single nation can bring to an end. He said he would stop all US payments for UN climate programs and needs to kill Mr Obama's initiative to control carbon footprints.

Deporting Immigrants

This is the issue that excited most passions in the campaign and Mr Trump has stuck to his vow to build a wall on the Mexican border. But he has watered down other pledges, such as his call for a ban on Muslim immigration and the deportation of 11million unauthorized immigrants. Mr Obama used an executive order to introduce the program and Mr Trump could undo it with the stroke of a pen.

Whatever Putin Says!

American intelligence sources have stated with "high confidence" that the Russian government attempted to intervene in the 2016 presidential election to favor the election of Trump and that members of Trump's campaign were in contact with Russian government officials both before and after the presidential election.

On LGBT rights

On January 31, 2017, Trump reported that his organization would keep in place the 2014 official order that shields employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination.In February 2017, the Trump organization canceled an Obama mandate (translating gender identity under Title IX) that enabled transgender students to utilize restrooms and locker rooms matching their chosen sex identity.The aforementioned facts are sure here to help you decide whose reign have been better in terms of lifestyle, national security, healthcare, human rights & so on. I've just presented the data that I found to be useful for the audience. Wait, What? Are you still confused in deciding about Uncle Sam's condition? Still, wanna figure out whether it was better then, during Obama's reign or is it better now, with Trump? Well, well! trickle down to get the probable answers...

So Mr Trump, Is USA better now under your rule?
