Trump claims support is stronger than ever

Trump claims support is stronger than ever

US President Donald Trump said his voting base was "stronger than ever" as he attacked "phony polling" that showed some of his his core supporters slipping away. That might not be the case.

The president's Monday morning tweet tirade further suggested speculation that his new chief of staff, John Kelly, would help rein in Trump and his tweeting habits was simply wishful thinking. In a recent Rasmussen Reports poll - a poll often found to be the most favourable to Trump - 41% of respondents said they approved of Trump's performance, while 57% disapproved. Other polls also show Trump with less than a 40 percent approval rating.

WWE Raw Results: Highlights, Analysis, and Grades for August 7
Bayley was originally slated to square-off against Alexa Bliss in a match with the RAW Women's Championship on-the-line. Monday night's episode of WWE Raw was headlined by a Last Man Standing match between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman .

Now, this is just one poll, but the change is still significant. And while it's not clear what led to the drop, it does follow a string of negative press for the administration. If Trump doesn't repeal ObamaCare and overhaul the tax code by the midterms, an increasing number of voters say they won't vote for the GOP incumbent. But his administration has been largely engulfed in chaos, high-profile departures, and the continuing investigations into Russia's possible link to his presidential campaign.

The poll also asked contributors about whether they think the White House tells the truth.

And despite speculation that it was meant to rally his base, Trump's announcement via Twitter that transgender people would not be allowed to serve openly in the military, faced backlash from military members, GOP voters and members of Congress.

Trump has continued his own efforts to discredit the media through his social media accounts and hasn't been available on his vacation so far.
