Trump Claims His Approval Rating Is Higher Than Barrack Obama’s. Twitter Responds

Donald Trump decided to go on a Twitter rant on Father’s Day and “brag” about his poll numbers, saying that they’re higher than former President Barrack Obama, but the same data he used as reference says otherwise.

“The new Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in the 2016 election, just out with a Trump 50 per cent approval rating. That’s higher than O’s #’s!” Trump tweeted.

Rasmussen polling stated:

“His approval rating has ranged from a high of 59 per cent in late January shortly after he took office, to a low of 42 per cent in early April.”

Trump lied yet again. According to the same polling company, Obama started his presidency with an approval rating of 67%. At this stage of his presidency Obama’s rating went down to 55%, which is still higher than what Trump claimed.

And of course, Trump’s lie wasn’t going to go unnoticed. Twitter users decided to share a few words of criticism with the president.

Here are some of the best.
