Donald Trump shares misreported favorability graphic from Fox Business Network

President Trump during a meeting in the Oval Office

The president took much ridicule for this, but at least in this case it wasn't entirely his fault - Dobbs, a massive Trump supporter, bears blame for putting out the incorrect information.

But Mo Elleithee, director of Georgetown's Institute of Politics & Public Service, corrected Mr. Trump, saying Fox Business misread the poll and that the number is actually his unfavorable rating. But the graphic wasn't entirely wrong - the poll did find that Trump had a 58% approval rating on the economy.

While more Americans - 51 percent - continue to disapprove of the president's performance than approve of it, the latest approval figure matches two previous highs in Gallup polling.

Trump's job approval rating on nearly all the other specific issues polled was also net negative, with the exception of how he handles "jobs".

President Donald Trump tweeted fake news on Thursday, distributing a televised graphic that showed his poll numbers 180 degrees away from reality.

Trump often retweets the praise he receives from Dobbs and other Fox News hosts, and he made sure to amplify the graphics used in Wednesday's segment accompanying a screen shot with the message "Great News!"

The graphic was produced by the Fox Business Network and broadcast the night before on "Lou Dobbs Tonight".

They added that for Trump to win a second term, he would need to repeat the dynamics of the 2016 campaign, adding that a majority of them approve his work on the economy and jobs and believe he is better at handling these issues than the Democrats.

The president publicly touted a separate survey released this week by Rasmussen Reports, which placed his approval ratings at 53 per cent. However, the graphic also showed that 55 percent of the respondents approve of the president, that number is not correct.
