Trump’s Approval Rating Plummets to Historic 70-Year Low

HeadlineJul 17, 2017
H06 trump approval

President Trump’s approval rating has now plummeted to a mere 36 percent as he nears the six-month mark of his presidency. It’s the lowest six-month approval rating of a U.S. president in 70 years. The Washington Post/ABC News poll also showed only 24 percent of people support the Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Meanwhile, the White House has declared this week “Made in America” week—despite the fact that Trump’s own companies outsource the vast majority of manufacturing to factories overseas. Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump exclusively outsources the manufacturing of her clothing and accessory lines to overseas factories, mostly in Bangladesh, Indonesia and China.
