Poor Donald Trump. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been being mean to him. The former leader of the free world claims the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s attack on the 2016 election – as well as the continued attacks – plus the conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow are just “fake news.” In his traditional punch-up-punch-down act, he brings out his short list of accomplishments. Then he does this.
POTUS pulls out his big guns, calling Mueller’s investigation “Presidential Harassment!”
‘Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last almost two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge’s, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen. It’s called Presidential Harassment!’
The man currently sitting in the Oval Office claimed that if Mueller would just drop the investigation into Trump, the president’s approval ratings would explode upward from 50 percent to 75 percent. That was an interesting statement. It is nearly impossible to quantify it because Mueller is here and working away with his extremely talented professional team.
RealClearPolitics combined several polling companies to come up with its presidential approval percentages. At the moment, 52.5 of Americans percent disapprove of the job Trump has been doing, while only 43.3 percent approve. Meanwhile, the Rasmussen poll shows Trump with a 49 percentage approval rating.
It appears that the commander-in-chief lifted the phrase “presidential harassment” from his friend Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. The senator noted that after the Republicans investigated Bill Clinton in the 1990s, then-president Clinton’s approval ratings jumped and the Dow rating rose 20 percentage points. Not only that, the Republicans suffered from their activities. The public gave them a lower rating.
