In his Monday morning tweet, President Donald trump continues to claim a bigger and stronger base. He then ends his tweet by again dismissing polls with unfavorable results as fake news to appear credible.

Trump has been advised to refocus his energy in the seventh month of his presidency, on immigration and other issues that GOP members, evangelicals, and other voters who helped bring him to the White House want.

He continues to spend his energy this week on early morning tweets, while Republicans are veering away from the president.

Unpopular president

The best proof of his growing unpopularity, even with Republicans, was when the GOP passed a Russian sanction bill that Trump was forced to sign which resulted in the Washington-Moscow relationship hitting an all-time low as Russian President Vladimir Putin sent more than 700 American diplomatic staff home. “It needs to go up,” Kellyanne Conway, the president’s counselor, admitted on Sunday on ABC because Trump's approval rating among Republicans, conservatives, and voter is down, Time reported

It also did not help that Trump made the mistake of hiring Anthony Scaramucci as his communications director which led to the resignation of Press Secretary Sean Spicer and the firing of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus who Trump replaced with John Kelly.

CNN poll

Although Trump continues to try to erode the credibility of mainstream media by frequently dismissing their unfavorable articles about him as fake news, it returns to him because polls made by these news organization show Trump is losing. In the latest CNN survey, the number of Americans who approve of Trump’s performance is down to 38 percent, while those who disapprove climbed to 56 percent.

The only other U.S. president who held a below 50 percent approval rating six months after assuming the post was Bill Clinton who got 44 percent approval rating in 1993. In February until April, the approval rating of the real estate billionaire hovered between 44 percent and 45 percent.

The substantial drop in support was felt among Republicans, whites with no college degree, and Democrats.

As a result, the number of those who still expect to see changes the U.S. needs keeps on plummeting, as well as those who trust in the White House’s pronouncements.

When his first 200 days in office are compared to a similar time frame with Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Trump’s 36 percent for those who consider him a success pales in comparison to Bush’s 56 percent and Obama’s 51 percent, CNN reported.
