Trump Touts His Latest Approval Rating...Because It Was the Same As Obama's

President Trump boasted about his latest approval rating Friday, noting that it is in line with former President Obama’s at the same point in his presidency.

“While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%...and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!” he tweeted.

Matt Drudge brought up the same point Thursday morning after Rasmussen Reports released its latest survey about the president’s approval rating.

 “Rasmussen Poll shows Trump at 46% APPROVE this morning, with 53% DISAPPROVE... What about Obama at same exact date first year in presidency?? 46% APPROVE, 53% DISAPPROVE!”

Trump's average approval rating according to RealClearPolitics stands at 39.3 percent.

The president then retweeted a number of posts from Charlie Kirk, founder of conservative group Turning Point USA, about his successes during his first year in office, including on tax reform, the Islamic State's decimation, judicial nominees, deregulation, and more.
