WASHINGTON (AP) — A new poll shows Americans are more likely than not to support President Donald Trump’s decision to order a drone strike that killed an Iranian general, even amid widespread skepticism about his foreign policy overall.

The poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research was taken about two weeks after the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq. The poll found 41% of Americans approved of the action while 30% disapproved of it. The rest didn't express an opinion either way.

The poll showed 59% disapproved of the Republican president's handing of foreign policy.
