Amateur president Donald Trump has hit the lowest approval rating of any president during their first nearly-six months in office in 70 years, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Thirty-six percent of those surveyed in the poll approve of Trump's job performance, which is six points down from his 100-day mark, while 58 percent disapprove of the former reality show star's performance.
Trump, who never met a fact he liked, tweeted, "The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!"

It's not "almost 40%." It's 36 percent.
Compare that to his predecessors:
It really is bad. pic.twitter.com/HICkS6I3fD

Uh it's not almost 40%, and it's a record low for any President in history, AND you inherited a strong economy and no major war or disasters

I used to tell my math teacher that 40% was "not bad at this time." She disagreed.

63 percent think Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, was inappropriate.
Sixty percent think Russia tried to influence the 2016 presidential race and 67 percent believe Trump aides helped them but Trump thinks his historically low approval rating is ‘not bad.'
More ‘not bad' news for Trump in that poll: Two-thirds of respondents who were surveyed don't trust Trump to negotiate with world leaders on the U.S.'s behalf, specifically Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Only 27 percent said the U.S.'s world leadership has gotten stronger under Trump. In contrast, about half of respondents said it's gotten weaker.
IDK, but maybe if he would stop trying to kill people with the GOP/Trumpcare bill, his rating wouldn't be as bad.
