A quarter of French citizens are satisfied with President Emmanuel Macron’s job performance, according to a poll published Sunday.

Agence France Presse (AFP) reported that an Ifop poll published in the Journal du Dimanche showed 25 percent of the country approves of Macron, down four percentage points from an October poll. 

Sunday’s poll found that 4 percent of respondents said they are “very satisfied” with Macron’s work, and 21 percent are “mostly satisfied.”

The poll surveyed 1,957 people from Nov. 9 to 17, according to AFP.

Macron, who took office in May 2017, has struggled to overcome low approval ratings for much of his time in office as he grapples with a struggling economy.

President Trump seized on Macron’s approval ratings in a series of tweets last week where he attacked the French president following a trip to Paris.

“The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject,” Trump tweeted, before suggesting there is “no country more Nationalist than France.”

Macron delivered a rebuke of nationalism at a World War I Armistice Day ceremony with other world leaders, warning that the concept is a “betrayal of patriotism.” Trump has embraced the term “nationalist” in recent weeks.
