(CNN)Donald Trump once pledged that, if elected president, he would put America first and spend no time at all worried about what the rest of the world thought about us. Mission accomplished!

A new Pew poll of 13 foreign countries reveals that perceptions of America have dropped drastically in recent years.
A few examples:
    * In the United Kingdom, 83% had a favorable view of the US in 2000. Now just 41% feel the same way, the lowest number ever in Pew data.* In Germany, just 26% now view the United States favorably -- down from 78% who said the same in 2000.Read More* In Canada, approval for their southern neighbors has gone from 72% in 2000 to 35% now.What explains the collapse? Well, Trump mostly. The 13 countries' median rating on confidence in Trump to do the right thing in world affairs is just 16%. That includes a high of 25% in Japan and a low of 9% in Belgium.Trump's dismal ratings are closely tied to perceptions about how he has led the US during the coronavirus pandemic. Across all 13 countries, a median of a measly 15% said the US had done a good job in dealing with Covid-19.What's fascinating about these numbers is that both Trump allies and detractors will seize on them to prove their points.Trump and his backers will cite the Pew data as evidence that other countries just don't like it when the US stops letting itself be taken advantage of and stands up for itself."Four years ago, I ran for president because I cannot watch this betrayal of our country any longer," Trump said in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last month. "I could not sit by as career politicians let other countries take advantage of us on trade, borders, foreign policy and national defense."For Trump's adversaries, these numbers prove how much damage he has done."I will be a president who will stand with our allies and friends," pledged Democratic nominee Joe Biden in his own acceptance speech last month. "I will make it clear to our adversaries the days of cozying up to dictators are over."
      Here's what is abundantly clear: Trump represents a fundamental break with the policies and strategic approach that every post-World War II president -- regardless of party -- has chosen to follow. And his muscular isolationism has consequences.The Point: We've never been in this place before in the modern presidency and the post-World War II world. It's yet another line Trump has not just crossed, but obliterated.

      LHP Cole Hamels Done for Year After Just 1 Start for Braves

      By PAUL NEWBERRY, AP Sports Writer

      ATLANTA (AP) — After making just one start for the Atlanta Braves, Cole Hamels went back on the 10-day injured list Monday and is done for the season.

      Hamels reported shortly before the start of a four-game series against the Miami Marlins that he just didn't feel like he could get anything on the ball. He was scheduled to make his second start Tuesday after struggling throughout the year to overcome shoulder and triceps issues.

      “Cole knows himself and his body,” general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. “You trust the player at that point when he says he can't go.”

      The Braves began Monday with a three-game lead in the NL East .and primed for their third straight division title.

      Even with that success, Atlanta has struggled throughout the shortened 60-game series to put together a consistent rotation beyond Cy Young contender Max Fried and rookie Ian Anderson.

      Expected ace Mike Soroka went down with a season-ending injury, former All-Star Mike Foltynewicz was demoted after just one start, and Sean Newcomb also was sent to the alternate training site after getting hammered in his four starts.

      The Braves were hoping Hamels, who signed an $18 million, one-year contract last fall, would return in time to provide a boost for the playoffs. He was scheduled to start the final game of the regular season Sunday, putting him position to join the postseason rotation behind Fried and Anderson.

      Now, Hamels is done for the year, his Braves' career possibly ending after he made that one appearance last week in Baltimore. He went 3 1/3 innings, giving up three runs on three hits, with two strikeouts and one walk in a loss to the Orioles.
