Donald Trump has achieved something truly unprecedented in his presidency already– the lowest approval rating ever recorded.
In the words of NBC’s Chuck Todd:
‘The President’s approval rating stands at 44% with 48% disapproving. That is the lowest rating ever recorded in our poll at this early stage of a presidency. For a little perspective, it took President Obama 32 months to fall into negative territory. It took President George W. Bush 41 months.’
Simply put, in the last month even more Americans are reporting they don’t like the job Donald Trump is doing. The majority of Americans outright oppose the policies and direction of the White House.
Upon the release of this information, people took to Twitter to express their reactions. Check out a few of the best ones:

It’s #sad when Gary Busey has better ideas than you. He probably would have better approval ratings too!

There are many reasons citizens dislike the Trump administration. These reasons include, but definitely aren’t limited to: Trump’s gross disrespect of the media and their Constitutional rights;;

Trump toutes racist, Islamophobic and other hateful views and integrates them into his political agenda.
Everybody is arguing whether or not it is a BAN. Call it what you want, it is about keeping bad people (with bad intentions) out of country!

We must keep “evil” out of our country!

Trump has made inflammatory remarks about federal judges and the judicial community as a whole.
Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!

The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!

Then there is the matter of Trump’s almost daily social media meltdowns, which are a national embarrassment. He presents himself as erratic, unstable, immature, and in need of mental health support.
For first time the failing @nytimes will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!

Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!

By no means are the reasons given above an exhaustive list of explanations of citizens’ disdain for Donald Trump. Frankly, why people don’t like Trump would only be important if he planned to address those reasons and show that he cares what people think. However, Trump hasn’t displayed the kind of respect for the American people that would lead any reasonable person to believe that he will make changes to gain the favor of the people he is supposed to represent.
As a result of Trump’s unwillingness to listen to the people he represents, most of the country doesn’t like him. That’s sad and a horrible representation of what America is supposed to stand for.
