Support for the United States in Japan has dropped to the lowest level in nine years as only a quarter of Japanese say they have confidence in U.S. President Donald Trump’s policies, according to a survey released Tuesday.

The poll, carried out by the Washington-based Pew Research Center, showed that 57 percent of Japanese see the U.S. in a favorable light, down from 72 percent in the previous poll, conducted last year, and the biggest year-on-year decline in a decade. This is the lowest figure since 2008, when 50 percent said they had a favorable view of the U.S.
