Trust is a form of confidence. Saying that you have trust in someone is often the same as saying you have confidence in them or that you place your hope or faith in them. Trust is often a firm belief that someone or something won’t let you down.

Trust is also a verb meaning to have such confidence. To trust someone in this way is often to rely on, count on, depend on, or even believe in them. Having someone you can trust is having someone you can turn to.

Sometimes, this can imply that the person trusts others too easily. A similar (but less common) word is trustful.

As a verb, trust can also mean something like presume, as in I trust we won’t have any problems here.
