President TrumpDonald John TrumpThorny part of obstruction of justice is proving intent, that's a job for Congress Obama condemns attacks in Sri Lanka as 'an attack on humanity' Schiff rips Conway's 'display of alternative facts' on Russian election interference MORE said he would award himself an “A-plus” job approval rating because he said the “level of love” at his rallies is “just a beautiful thing to watch.”

The president boasted about his job performance while sitting with Bloomberg reporters in the Oval Office on Thursday.

He said he will never be impeached by Congress because they can’t “impeach somebody that’s doing a great job.”

“You look at the economy, you look at jobs, you look at foreign, what’s going on with other countries. You look at trade deals. I’m doing a great job,” he told the outlet.

Voters disapproval of the job Trump is doing hit a new high, according to a poll released Friday from ABC News and The Washington Post.

Sixty percent of those polled said they disapprove of Trump’s performance in office in the poll, the highest number of his presidency thus far. Only 36 percent said that they approve of Trump’s job performance.

Right-leaning Rasmussen Reports polling often has his approval rating closer to 50 percent. 

ABC News noted that Trump’s average approval rating since he entered the White House is the lowest of any modern president since the 1940s. 

Trump has previously questioned calls for his impeachment, repeating the same claim earlier this month during an interview with “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt.

Despite his confidence, Trump has reportedly been discussing the possibility of impeachment proceedings with his legal team.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Trump has consulted with his personal lawyers about the “i-word,” as Trump calls it. 

Trump told Bloomberg on Thursday that a prospective impeachment would lower the bar in terms of evidence required to impeach a president under a Congress controlled by the opposite party.

"So you get elected as a Republican or a Democrat and the opposite party gets put into the House. That would mean, oh, let’s impeach him. Can’t do it,” Trump continued. “If you look at the definition of impeachment, that’s a high bar and that would take a long time to fight that if you’re doing a good job. And I’m doing a great job.”
