Even though most U.S. citizens would love to think so, America isn’t the most popular nation on the planet. Like any country (or any place in the world, for that matter), there are some major problems in the country that need to be fixed as soon as possible. From outright racism to economic mistakes and the questionable decisions that some politicians make, it’s not hard to see why some countries aren’t exactly big fans of the United States.
Sure, there are some perks to being an American. After all, there are many people from other nations who decide to move their families to the United States in search of better financial and educational opportunities. However, there are still a number of leaders from other countries who aren’t happy with the leadership in America. Some of these foreign leaders also don’t agree with the way that Americans behave in everyday life, either. Yes, that’s a pretty broad generalization, but that’s usually what humans do when they don’t know much about a country or its people, and we should probably work on that as a whole.
The reasons that some other countries don’t particularly care for America are varied, but they are very real. Here are 12 of the countries in the world that hate America.

The U.S. Global Leadership Project reports that 82% of Russians don’t approve of the job the United States is doing in leadership. This is the strongest disapproval rating of any other country in the world. Many Russians feel that the United States has made things worse in their country by trying to get involved in Russia’s affairs. Even though most Russians don’t like America, those who live in other countries have a high disapproval rating of Russia as well. Russia is the only country in which the median disapproval rating of Russian leadership was more than the median approval rating. The fact that the United States has recently led Western sanctions on Russia hasn’t made the approval rating any better.
