North Korea's Kim Jong Un was a close second for a few generations, but Trump came in at number one for each.

A YouGov poll for the nonprofit educational group Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation last year found that Americans across all generations perceive President Donald Trump as a greater threat to world peace than several well-known authoritarians, according to Axios.

From the Silent Generation through Gen Z, Trump beats out North Korea's Kim Jong-un, Russia's Vladimir Putin, China's Xi Jinping and Venezuela's Nicolás Maduro as the world’s biggest threat.
