President Trump on Sunday touted recent polling examining his approval ratings as he approaches his 100th day in office.

"New polls out today are very good considering that much of the media is FAKE and almost always negative," the president tweeted Sunday afternoon.

"Would still beat Hillary in ... popular vote. ABC News/Washington Post Poll (wrong big on election) said almost all stand by their vote on me & 53% said strong leader," he wrote in two messages.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday found that just 42 percent of Americans say they approve of the job Trump is doing as president.
 
But the poll found 96 percent of those who voted for Trump in November say it was the right decision, and just 2 percent say they regret their choice.
 
The poll also found a majority of Americans think the president is a strong leader.
 
Though Trump tweeted that he "would still beat Hillary in popular vote," he actually lost the popular vote count to the Democratic nominee in November. 
 
The president often blasts polls.
 
In February, Trump tweeted that "any negative polls are fake news" and pointed to networks including CNN, ABC and NBC.
