Trump Approval Rating Stands at 51 Percent, Despite Surveys to Contrary

Trump Approval Rating Stands at 51 Percent, Despite Surveys to Contrary

In an Associated Press interview, President Donald Trump claimed more progress than he's achieved on his 100-day plan and showed he was not completely familiar with what he had promised in that "contract" with voters.

Still, modern presidents have tried to move swiftly to capitalize upon the potent, and often fleeting, mix of political capital and public goodwill that usually accompanies their arrival in Washington.

TRUMP: When Wikileaks came out ... never heard of Wikileaks, never heard of it. While 38% of respondents believe Trump is in touch with the concerns of the American people, just 32% said the Republican Party was in touch and 28% said the Democratic Party was in touch. He presented Congress with the most consequential tax, spending and government-overhaul plan it had seen in decades, a comprehensive package that exceeds in scope anything Trump has brought forward, including his first run at health care.

The president in question is not Donald Trump.

He underscored the message by dropping the MOAB (aka "Mother of All Bombs") on an Islamic State hideout in Afghanistan and by deploying the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group (after a brief detour off the coast of Australia) to the Korean Peninsula. I mention the F-35 because if I can save $725 million - look at that, that's a massive amount of money.

The Senators were up 3-0 early in the second period, and then gave up three straight, though they eventually won in overtime. There wasn't any lulls, even when he was injured. "I think that's what's great about the game, for sure", Boucher said.

He fires off tweets at odd hours of the morning and night, sending Washington into a stir with just a few words. This is the same rate that Trump pursued during his 2016 campaign, but officials had not signaled since the election whether he would stick to the pledge.

He is acutely aware of how he's being covered in the media, rattling off the ratings for some of his television appearances. Now, he says the 100-day hallmark is ridiculous. "That guy gives me the creeps'".

The White House lifted the freeze in mid April, with budget director Mick Mulvaney noting that the administration was replacing it with a "a more surgical plan" to reduce federal jobs. Creating a strong team in White House same as Trump Tower is much harder.

"It's very expensive, and that's a problem", Williams said. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet.
