Trump attacks negative approval poll

President Trump blasted the ABC/Washington Post poll that showed him with a record low approval rating calling it in a tweet "the most inaccurate poll around election time."

The poll, released Sunday, found that President Trump has a 36 percent approval rating among Americans after six months in office. This is the lowest rating of any president in the past 70 years.

"The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!" Trump tweeted.

Trump tends to criticize polls and pollsters who show negative ratings, calling them inaccurate, and praises polls that show positive ratings. 

Last month, Trump received a 48 percent approval rating in a Harvard-Harris Poll survey last month, which was considerably higher than in other polls.

The results of the latest poll comes when Trump faces investigations into ties of his administration with Russia, and as reports of a meeting between top Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer during the campaign who Obama allowed into the country beyond her 'probation' visa.

Trump has denied any knowledge of the meeting.
