According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, “Fox & Friends” is doing a “disservice to viewers” because they have reported a positive approval rating for President Donald J. Trump.
Now at the end of his first year, President Trump’s approval rating is comparable to that of former President Barack Obama’s approval rating, when the numbers are compared to the same time period: roughly 46%.
The president posted a tweet on Thursday featuring the rating, and writing, “Together we are MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”
After “Fox & Friends” shared the results on air Friday morning, the president once again tweeted his approval of the information. He wrote: “While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!”
CNN’s Brian Stelter responded, tweeting: “This is a prime example of how ‘Fox & Friends’ does a disservice to viewers.” He included a link to the president’s tweet.
As the Daily Caller notes, on Dec. 28, 2009 Obama had a 47 percent approval rating, and on December 29, 2009, his approval rating was at 46 percent. President Trump sits at a 46 percent approval rating on Dec. 28, 2017, clearly setting Trump’s approval on par with Obama’s at the same point in their respective presidencies.
While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!
