Some three-quarters of the American people think that President Donald Trump will get involved in a “major conflict” in the next few years, a new survey has found.
According to the survey, 72 percent of the American society fears the country will become involved in such a war within four years.
Since he became president, Trump has taken a much more aggressive tone than his predecessor, Barack Obama, toward Iran and North Korea, among other nations.
The survey found that most American people believe the greatest threat to their country is from North Korea, followed by ISIS and Russia. However, only two percent of people believe Iran is the greatest threat, despite Trump’s harsh tone against Tehran.
The NBC News/SurveyMonkey National Security poll also found that 54 percent of the population disapprove of the way Trump is dealing with North Korea.
In his inaugural speech at the UN, Trump said there would be no choice but to “totally destroy North Korea”. “If the righteous many don’t confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” he said.
Most Americans, about 64 percent, also disagree with Trump who said the diplomacy being conducted by his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is a waste of time. They prefer a diplomatic solution between the two countries.
