If history has taught us anything it’s that we can’t just get along. This is particularly true for global powers such as the United States, a county that has its fair share of haters. This has gotten better post-George W. Bush, but there are still plenty of countries that disapprove more than they approve of the U.S. Here is a list of the countries that hate the U.S. most.
Granted, these poll results don’t always tell the whole story and also don’t dictate what will happen in terms of global foreign policy, but it doesn’t make it any easier. What makes people hate the U.S.? There are several factors that include their use of military in countries where people wish they would leave them alone, their use of global resources to enhance their economic growth and, as will happen with global powers, the arrogance of believing their way is better than others.
A couple dishonorable mentions (countries that actually like the U.S.) go to Senegal and Kosovo. Both countries brought U.S. approval ratings greater than 80 percent. Not coincidentally, these are two countries where the U.S. has attempted to assist their people.
Not everyone though is in love with the U.S. This list has small and large countries. Also, this list includes regions that have had conflict with the U.S. in the past as well as countries that show a quiet distaste for the American way of life.

There has always been a competitive spirit between Russia and the U.S., but there may be no time in history where both countries dislike each other as much as today (hey, remember that thing called the Cold War?). With a disapproval ranking of 82 percent, the people of Russia definitely don’t mask their distaste for the U.S. way of life. Recent sanctions by the U.S. against Russia only intensify the hatred. On a more positive note, at least it’s not just the U.S. Most countries disapprove of Russia. Sometimes it’s good to get the majority vote to understand what’s really happening in one country.
