According to a new poll that was released on Monday, President Trump’s approval rating has hit its highest mark since over two years ago.
According to RealClearPolitics, President Trump’s approval rating is 45% which marks the highest approval rating for the President since February of 2017.
Since the infancy of his presidency, Trump’s approval ratings have sat at about 40% but have recently begun to tick up into the mid-to-high 40 percentage points — a significant improvement less than 18 months out from the 2020 presidential election.
A Gallup poll published last week showed Trump’s approval ratings at 46%, which is higher than the approval ratings for former President Barack Obama at the same point during his first term.
Despite Trump’s reputation as an unprecedentedly polarizing figure, his economic policies have received strong support from the American people, with 58% approving of the president’s handling of the economy, according to a Georgetown University poll released last week.
The U.S. has seen more than 3% GDP growth in back to back years under Trump’s watch, a feat that was never reached under the Obama administration. The economic boom is widely credited to the 2017 Republican “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” as well as the Trump administration’s deregulation agenda.
Great to welcome Chairman Shin from Lotte Group to the WH. They just invested $3.1 BILLION into Louisiana-biggest investment in U.S. EVER from a South Korean company, & thousands more jobs for Americans. Great partners like ROK know the U.S. economy is running stronger than ever!” he said.
He also mentioned how he is fighting for funding for the Army Corps Everglades restoration project.
“My Administration will be fighting for $200 million for the Army Corps Everglades restoration work this year. Congress needs to help us complete the world’s largest intergovernmental watershed restoration project ASAP! Good for Florida and good for the environment.” the President said.
In the midst of all these successes, President Trump is going head to head with China on trade. Check out what he said.
When the time is right we will make a deal with China. My respect and friendship with President Xi is unlimited but, as I have told him many times before, this must be a great deal for the United States or it just doesn’t make any sense.
We have to be allowed to make up some of the tremendous ground we have lost to China on Trade since the ridiculous one sided formation of the WTO. It will all happen, and much faster than people think!
Our great Patriot Farmers will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of what is happening now. Hopefully China will do us the honor of continuing to buy our great farm product, the best, but if not your Country will be making up the difference based on a very high China buy this money will come from the massive Tariffs being paid to the United States for allowing China, and others, to do business with us. The Farmers have been “forgotten” for many years. Their time is now!
