While most Americans are deploring Trump for his frequent lies, vulgar language, racist remarks, and overall dishonesty, his ratings can never be good. Trump often releases fake ratings to hoodwink his base.

President Donald Trump who loves to love himself said Sunday that he has received over 90% approval rating. He added that media is constantly tarnishing his image.

“Over 90% approval rating for your all time favorite (I hope) President within the Republican Party and 52% overall. This despite all of the made up stories by the fake news media trying endlessly to make me look as bad and evil as possible. Look at the real villains please!” Trump tweeted with a usual exclamation mark to end his tweet.

While most Americans are deploring Trump for his frequent lies, vulgar language, racist remarks, promiscuity, and overall dishonesty, his ratings can never be good. Trump often releases fake ratings to hoodwink his base.

Moreover, the presidential job approval ratings – which are based on a negligibly small sample size (usually 1,000 – 2,000 respondents) – can never be the true benchmark of a President’s performance.

And if there is some little improvement in the economic status of the country, it is not because of Trump, but it is in spite of Trump while the economic renaissance had begun when Barack Obama was the President. Trump cannot – and should not – take any credit for anything good happening in America.

But with his own praise, Trump is trying to create a false protection cover around him while the demands for his impeachment are getting louder for his alleged criminal links with Russia.

He said in a recent interview given to a friendly TV channel that a successful President cannot be impeached and markets will crash if he is impeached. But Trump fails to understand that a crook can never be successful.

His critic Michael Avenatti said that Trump and all his con men think they are above the law and cannot be held accountable. “We will not rest until we prove them wrong. And I promise you that we will,” Avenatti said in a tweet.

He added that if the facts and the evidence support impeachment charges against Trump, he should stand trial in the Senate. “Regardless of party, this must be the process and we should not be timid about it,” Avenatti suggested.
