President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, prompting the president to tweet his approval rating “is not bad at this time.”

The president also took to Twitter Sunday to note that the news organizations predicted  he’d lose the presidential election.

“The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!” Trump tweeted.

According to a news release from the Washington Post:

• The president’s “disapproval rating has risen five points to 58 percent. . . .

• “Almost half of all Americans (48 percent) see the country’s leadership in the world as weaker since Trump was inaugurated, compared with 27 percent who say it is stronger. . . .

• “The Post-ABC poll finds 60 percent of Americans think Russia tried to influence the election outcome, up slightly from 56 percent in April.”
