Monday afternoon, President Trump responded to reports of his approval ratings from other countries, specifically from the European Union.

The president tweeted, in a two-part statement:

The Fake News Media has been talking about recent approval ratings of me by countries around the world, including the European Union, as being very low….

….I say of course they’re low – because for the first time in 50 years I am making them pay a big price for doing business with America. Why should they like me? — But I still like them!

In another tweet, the president shared a video of supporters in Houston, Texas, waiting in line a full 24 hours before the massive campaign rally scheduled there for Monday night, on behalf of Sen. Ted Cruz.
