Trump says recent ‘fake news polls’ contained ‘some very positive info’

President Trump on Monday said recent polls that came out this weekend examining his approval rating as he approaches his 100th day in office included some “very positive info.”

“The two fake news polls released yesterday, ABC & NBC, while containing some very positive info, were totally wrong in General E. Watch!” the president tweeted.

{mosads}On Sunday, Trump touted the new polls, saying they were “very good considering that much of the media is FAKE and almost always negative.”

An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday found 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.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found almost half of respondents said the president was off to a “poor start” in office.

The president often blasts the media and polls. In a tweet in February, the president said “any negative polls are fake news.”
