President Donald Trump said that he would give himself an “A-plus” job approval rating because the “level of love” at his rallies is “just a beautiful thing to watch.”
The President praised his performance during an interview 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.
According to a poll by 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 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.”
