President Donald Trump posted a rather...curious...tweet on Friday, trumpeting his 45 percent approval rating. The tweet, captioned "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!," contained an image saying that his approval rating was now 45 percent according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.

While this is an improvement over some of his earlier approval ratings, which have cratered as low as 33 percent, 45 percent still isn't all that great. It's still less than half of the country, and Trump still has very high disapproval rates. According to The Hill, more than half of Americans say they disapprove of the job Trump is doing.
This is his funniest tweet ever https://t.co/J8AKfZvsxk— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) December 8, 2017
Next year he’s going to be tweeting out polls from Rasmussen that have him at 38% when the rest of the field has him at 31 https://t.co/J8AKfZvsxk— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) December 8, 2017

You understand that 45 percent is not actually "great," right?— Robert Schlesinger (@rschles) December 8, 2017

Trump, in April: Wow, I'm at 50 percent.— Philip Bump (@pbump) December 8, 2017
In May: Hey, I'm at 48 percent.
Last month: Oh look, I'm at 46 percent.
Today: Anyway, 45.
Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted a video of former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama promising to move the capital of Israel to Jerusalem.
