Trump knocks ‘failing New York Times’ over ‘another phony story’

  Trump knocks ‘failing New York Times’ over ‘another phony story’ President Trump attacked The New York Times on Wednesday over a report that special counsel Robert Mueller's office is looking into a payment that a Ukrainian steel magnate made to Trump's charitable foundation in exchange for a video appearance. The president in an early morning tweet said the newspaper wrote "another phony story," claiming that the agreement was struck with pundit Doug Schoen and not a Ukrainian businessman."The Failing New York Times wrote another phony story. It was political pundit Doug Schoen, not a Ukrainian businessman, who asked me to do a short speech by phone (Skype), hosted by Doug, in Ukraine.

A new poll suggests that President Donald Trump 's support among Republicans is shrinking, in spite of his recent claims that his base is growing. The Trump base is far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling ).

President Trump in a tweet on Sunday promoted his recent job approval rating in conservative-leaning poll.

The president said it's "hard to believe" he is at 50 percent in the Rasmussen Poll, given all the "phony stories and Fake News."

Rasmussen's daily presidential tracking poll had Trump's approval rating at 50 percent on Friday with 49 percent of respondents disapproving of his job performance.

According to the poll, 34 percent of respondents strongly approve of Trump's performance while 40 percent highly disapprove.

Most other major polls currently have the president's approval rating hovering around the low 40s.

In recent months, however, Rasmussen had Trump's approval rating in the high 40s and low 50s.

The margin of error for the new Rasmussen Poll is 2.5 percentage points.
