When Trump is ‘the most powerful president in history,’ he could be a ‘total disaster’
Today’s headlines A few days ago, President Trump declared himself “the most effective president in American history,” and that he has “never before been so powerful, so fast, and so confident in the power of his presidency.”
He has since declared himself the “world’s greatest living president.”
And his approval rating has plummeted to 35 percent, from 56 percent.
It has also been the most unpopular president in U.S. history, with a disapproval rating of 61 percent, according to Gallup.
President Trump is “the least popular president in the history of the United States,” according to a new poll.
“The American people want to see Donald Trump succeed and that is exactly what he has done,” the president said in his first press conference since leaving office on Friday.
“He is the most effective President in the History of the U.M.C., and he will continue to be.”
The poll was conducted by Morning Consult and asked people in 45 states and Washington, D.C. to rate Trump’s performance, his job performance, and whether they believe his presidency has been “a success or failure.”
Trump is currently at 38 percent, down from 40 percent a month ago.
Trump has been unable to bring down his disapproval rating to its lowest point since August.
On the plus side, the poll found that Trump’s approval rating among independents is currently 42 percent, which is up four points from a month earlier.
But there are many concerns surrounding Trump’s presidency.
One of the most notable is that there is now a widespread consensus that Trump is an unqualified and incompetent president, and a growing number of Democrats and independents are calling on the public to “stop believing” the president’s claims of accomplishments.
It has also emerged that Trump has failed to produce results on the major policy challenges facing the country, such as repealing Obamacare or securing the border.
Even more alarming, Trump has also not been able to bring about a political shift in the American electorate that could have resulted in a different result.
The poll also found that only 37 percent of Americans believe that Trump would be able to “do a better job as president” if he was not the president.
More to come.
