President TrumpDonald TrumpUN meeting with US, France canceled over scheduling issue Trump sues NYT, Mary Trump over story on tax history McConnell, Shelby offer government funding bill without debt ceiling MORE lavished praise on his supporters Saturday morning via Twitter, calling his voters "the smartest" and the "most loyal" in the history of U.S. presidents.

In a tweet, the president seemed to suggest that as more Americans turned to support him, the country itself would "get stronger."


"My supporters are the smartest, strongest, most hard working and most loyal that we have seen in our countries history. It is a beautiful thing to watch as we win elections and gather support from all over the country. As we get stronger, so does our country. Best numbers ever!" he tweeted.

It's not clear what "numbers" Trump was referring to in the tweet, as FiveThirtyEight reported Saturday that Trump's approval rating has declined in all 50 states since taking office.

The poll found that Trump's average approval rating remains underwater, with 42 percent of Americans supporting the job Trump has done in office while 52 percent said they did not approve. Those numbers remained about the same from last month.

One area where the president has seen favorable public response is on North Korea, where half of U.S. voters said in a Reuters/Ipsos poll this week that they approve of the job Trump has done.
