Trump pays a staffer $89000 to find positive news stories about him

Besides ranting against Blumenthal on Monday, Donald Trump also boasted about how his base of support has grown stronger and far bigger than ever, despite his poll numbers hitting historically low levels. He mentioned large crowds at rallies he has held in Pennsylvania, Iowa and OH to support that assertion.

"The fact is the Fake News Russian collusion story, record Stock Market, border security, military strength, jobs ..."

Most US presidents have maintained and visited their private homes while in office, but the difference with Trump is that his properties are part of his business empire.

Still, Trump is making a concerted effort to reinvigorate his base.

Trump had already been facing low approval ratings overall, with many polls showing him at below 40 percent approval and above 55 percent disproval.

Last week's Quinnipiac University poll showed that 61 percent of Americans view Trump's White House performance unfavorably and 33 percent favorably, the lowest ever standing for a USA leader in his first months in the White House.

According to that survey, just 27 percent of people in that income group support him. But if Trump can't accomplish anything - if he can't repeal Obamacare - the base is going to flee. "You've got the voters, the press and all those other interests out there who have a say about what you just said, and that's not something Donald deals with too well".

Kimmel then explained how he knows Trump is really working: Trump said so on Twitter. Both figures are down from last month. Only 24 percent of Americans in the CNN poll said they "strongly" approve of Trump, down from 30 percent in March.

In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the USA showed signs of provocation. The president has been called hypocritical by observers who point out he often criticized former President Obama for his vacations and even said he would not be out playing golf if he were elected. The Republican Party loves taking breaks away from the white house.
