Donald Trump has attacked former President Barack Obama and those taking part in a ‘witch hunt’ against him in a series of early morning tweets. The president claimed his critics are not stopping him from getting on with his promise to ‘Make America Great Again’, when he fired up his Twitter account on Sunday morning.
‘The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt. Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm,..,’ the president’s first tweet read.
‘…massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!
‘The new Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election, just out with a Trump 50% Approval Rating. That’s higher than O’s #’s!’
Trump has regularly cited the Rasmussen poll, which has previously been accused of having a conservative and Republican slant, as it has frequently provided more positive numbers for the president.
However, his claim that his approval rates are higher than Obama’s appears to be a lie.
Trump was correct in stating his approval rating in the latest poll, released on Friday, was at 50 per cent, but that was still 12 percentage points below Obama’s final Rasmussen figure of 62 per cent.
In fact, the ex-President’s approval rating was above 50 per cent in every poll released by the company from October 24 until he left office.
