Everyone liked the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump’s speech and the words that he used but the initial yardstick of President Donald Trump’s job-approval rating shows Americans not happy over his performance in his three days in the Oval Office.
Trump’s approval rating in the Gallup survey, conducted last Friday till Sunday, is at 45 percent. Gallup, Inc. is an American research-based, global performance-management consulting company. Founded by George Gallup in 1935, the company became known for its public opinion polls conducted worldwide. Barack Obama’s opening approval rating in January 2009 was 67 percent, George W. Bush’s was 57 percent in 2001, Bill Clinton’s was 58 percent in 1993, George H.W. Bush’s was 51 percent in 1989 and Ronald Reagan’s was also 51 percent in 1981.
So up till now the work done by Mr. Trump is not satisfactory according to some Americans as compared to some of the previous men at this job.
39 percent said Trump’s inauguration made them feel “more hopeful” about the next four years, while 30 percent said it made them feel “less hopeful” and another 30 percent said it didn’t impact how they view the next four years.
Donald Trump’s False Claims
There are also some false claims which Mr. Trump made during the inauguration speech. Lets have a look at it.
- “The crowd was unbelievable today. I looked at the rain, which just never came, you know, we finished the speech, went inside, it poured then we came outside,” he said. “The helicopter scene was an incredible scene, and then, amazingly it rained—like God was looking down on us.”
While the reality is that the rain started as Mr. Trump began his inauguration speech, as he acknowledged the next day during a speech at CIA headquarters.
- “Even the media said the crowd was massive. That was all the way back down to the Washington Monument.”
Photos show the crowd did not stretch that far. As a matter of fact the crowd was lower than Barack Obama’s ceremonies which had around 1.8 million people gathered. Estimates vary but sources said fewer people attended the inauguration than did the Women’s March protest the following day, whose numbers he estimated at just under half a million.
- “Time magazine—and I have been on their cover, like, 14 or 15 times. I think we have the all-time record in the history of Time ”
Richard Nixon, the 37th President of the United States from 1969 until 1974, featured on Time‘s cover 55 times whereas Trump has been on the cover for just 11 times.
