Despite near constant negative coverage from mainstream media, the American people and people across the globe are falling in love with members of Team Trump.
Both First Lady Melania Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ranked within the top ten of “World’s Most Admired Women.”
The two tied with 3.9% of the vote and place ninth and tenth place, as Washington Examiner reports.

From the report:
The Left may hate her, but Sarah Huckabee Sanders is one of the Top 10 most admired women in America.
And unfortunately for liberals, the story has been confirmed as “true” by the liberal website Snopes, which acts as a fact-checker for lazy people.
Here’s more, per Snopes:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been the subject of intense scrutiny and criticism as one of President Donald Trump’s chief spokespersons since his inauguration in January 2017.

Her consistent defense of sometimes vacillating and even contradictory statements by Trump, as well as her occasionally combative style have made her the subject of ridicule by late night talk show hosts and in Saturday Night Live sketches. In April 2018, comedian Michelle Wolf targeted Huckabee Sanders in a controversial monologue at the White House Correspondents Association dinner.
It might come as a surprise, then, to learn that many members of the American public admire her more than nearly any other woman in the world.
Sanders and Melania have had to face a near constant barrage from people on the Left. Despite this, the two women have continued to garner support and serve the administration with grace.
So if you think that the whole country hates @realDonaldTrump and the people who work for him like @PressSec you might NOT want to read this! (Okay, I voted several thousand times!) https://t.co/sg1lJEFm4b

As Snopes reports, the top ten ranking was based off of a poll completed last month:
This is true. In April 2018, the UK-based polling firm YouGov published the results of its “World’s Most Admired” survey. Respondents in the United States ranked Huckabee Sanders the ninth most admired woman in the world. (You can view the United States’ rankings by choosing “USA” from the drop-down list of countries.)
Huckabee Sanders was ranked behind Nobel Peace Prize-winner Malala Yousafzai, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Queen Elizabeth II and Oprah Winfrey.
Pretty high accolades for only being in the international limelight a couple of years. Here’s how the poll was conducted:
In an article accompanying the rankings, YouGov explained how the “Most Admired” list was finalized:
In December, YouGov gathered open-ended nominations from panellists across 35 countries, asking them simply: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?” These nominations were then used to compile a list of the 20 men and 20 women who received the most nominations and were nominated in at least four countries. An additional 10 popular local figures were added to the lists for individual countries.
Over the beginning of the year we then used the lists to poll each of the 35 countries asking two questions: “who do you truly admire?”, where respondents could make multiple selections, and “who do you MOST admire?”, where they could only pick one. These two numbers were combined into a percentage share of admiration…
Huckabee Sanders received a percentage share of 3.6 percent — the same share of the vote received by First Lady Melania Trump, who was listed as the tenth most admired woman in the world among American survey respondents, but who effectively tied for ninth place with the White House Press Secretary.
