The president takes to Twitter to tout his approval rating. In a tweet Saturday, the president celebrated the findings of the most recent Rasmussen poll, which put his approval at 50%. In a follow up he said “you can add 10 or 15% to this number,” and the “economy is doing better than ever before!” During this time during former president Obama’s term, his approval fell six points lower to 44%.
President Trump addresses his feelings toward the “send her back” chant during his recent North Carolina rally. In a tweet Saturday, the president posted a video form the event when the chant broke out. He said “as you can see, I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant.”During a press conference earlier this week, the president said he “was not happy” when the chant broke out, and said he “disagreed with it.”
President Trump claimed the fake news media is obsessed with covering the “send her back” chant.
President Trump said he was “not happy” with some of his supporters in North Carolina after they began chanting “send her back” in reference to congresswoman Ilhan Omar. At the White House Thursday, the president said he did not condone the crowd’s rallying cry and disagreed with the statement.
