Trump decries 'Fake Poll' showing his approval rate in the 30s

President Donald Trump appeared to be rattled on Tuesday when he used his daily Twitter proclamations to rail against polling conducted by ABC and Washington Post.

In a telling question from the poll, 6 in 10 people rated a recession as "somewhat likely" or "very likely" to hit next year. This coincides with data showing that 60 percent of the country expect prices to rise because of Trump's trade war with China, and also a recession is "likely" to happen in the next year.

The president wasted little time disputing the poll's results.

The uncertainty about the economy has affected Trump's job approval ratings. "Internal polling looks great, the best ever!" he tweeted.

Xi reportedly went on to complain to Abe about how the Trump administration has continued to lambaste China at every turn for supporting state-owned companies with subsidies while "the U.S.is also supporting Boeing with subsidies", in reference to the Chicago-based plane builder.

Sixty percent said they were anxious that the trade war with China would increase the price of consumer products for their families.

With doubts continuing to fester about his reelection chances, the president reiterated his assurances days later.

"There's something going on at Fox, I'll tell you right now", Trump told reporters last month.

And although 56 percent of respondents said they view the economy as positive, that number is down from a high of 65 percent in the same poll last November.

Abe reportedly told Xi that Trump trusts the Chinese president, but Xi continued to voice frustration and the big reason for his distrust is how the USA has handled Chinese telecom giant Huawei, which has been banned from us networks and from buying American tech.

Meanwhile, the president's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted in January to attempts to rig online polls in Trump's favor ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Cohen added that his efforts to skew the polls came at the direction of the man who now sits in the Oval Office.
