Trump ends first year with lowest approval of any modern president

Trump: Durbin 'misrepresented' immigration comments

Asked about the president's accomplishments during his first year in office, 20 percent said the state of the economy and low unemployment was Trump's greatest success, followed by "putting America first", which was the choice of 13 percent of respondents.

First, and perhaps most apparent, is the impact of the President's bombastic rhetoric and cavalier attitude toward nuclear weapons and the use of force. Ten percent each said the president's recently signed tax legislation and military successes against Islamic State militants.

It now puts his golfing visits at 77 and says it registers every time "there are pictures of Trump playing golf or wearing golf attire such as cleats or a golf glove, or whenever the White House confirms that the President "might have hit a few balls". "But what happened immediately is that we felt he was under attack from day one".

"'Two men can be 6'3" and almost 240lbs, but if one has 30 ideal body fat versus the other with 10 percent body fat, you will get a radically different looking person.

In Canada, 20 per cent of respondents said they approved of the job performance of US leadership; 76 per cent said they disapproved.

"There are people in the White House who are outliers", the South Carolina Republican said in an exclusive interview.

Passage of the tax bill could help Republicans in this year's congressional elections, where Democrats are favored to make gains, especially in the House of Representatives.

The bipartisan group of Senators said they believe they can get the 60 votes needed to pass the proposal in the Senate. While Obama had a strained relationship with Israel, Trump has embraced the country and has subsequently received a 14% bump in support there over his predecessor. "They said similar abt Reagan".

Since becoming president one year ago, Donald Trump has angered nations for his sudden outbursts and comments. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Trump fared well in Israel, where he enjoys an approval rating of 67 percent-approximately the same mark the USA ally gave the second Bush administration.

"The recent drop in approval ratings is unrelated to the world's being less familiar with the new USA administration", Gallup notes.

A Gallup poll released Thursday shows that world approval of USA leadership has fallen to a historic low during the Trump administration, but some experts believe the low approval rate could be due to the fact that Trump is taking us foreign policy in an "America First" direction.

During his first year in office, Trump withdrew the U.S. from several multilateral initiatives because, according to him, they were not in his country's "best interest", including the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership and the Paris Climate Change accord. But Obama was flying cross-country to Palm Springs and Trump couldn't get through. To the dismay of allies, he trumpets an "America First" outlook rather than close global cooperation to solve issues affecting one and all. In his third and final tweet as of press time, Trump declared that "Main Street is BACK!" after CNBC reported that holiday sales were up 5.5 percent.

Donald Trump's first year of office ends on Saturday.
