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.
