Trump claims his "base is getting stronger" amid "fake news"

Trump supporters' optimism starting to wear off: Poll

A majority of registered voters (53 per cent) now say they are mostly pessimistic about the next few years of Trump's time in office.

Trump posted some of his usual gripes, fake news (otherwise known as news that paints him in a bad light) chief among them. The survey also showed that only 43 percent of whites without a college degree - a key voting group for Trump - approve, compared to 50 percent who disapprove. And approximately 9,000 people came out to see the president at a rally in Huntington, West Virginia, last week.

"I would note too in some of the polling, which of course I scour daily on behalf of the president, his approval rating among Republicans and conservatives and Trump voters is down slightly", Conway told ABC News.

"Will never change!" Trump declared about the strength of his base.

"The Fake News refuses to report the success of the first 6 months: S.C., surging economy & jobs, border & military security, ISIS & MS-13 etc.", tweeted President Donald Trump on Sunday evening.

He said that it is "hard to believe" that "the Trump base is getting stronger!" despite months of coverage by the mainstream news media of what he called "the Fake News Russian collusion story". "And don't worry about all the distractions and diversions and discouragement that others, who are trying to throw logs in your path, are throwing your way".

Over the weekend, the president insisted on Twitter that the trip to Bedminster is "not a vacation".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is conducting a criminal investigation, convening a grand jury to hear testimony about contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians and whether Trump obstructed justice by firing James Comey, another former FBI director, when he was leading the agency's Russia investigation before Mueller took over.

The tweets ignore the fact that Trump is doing poorly among all Americans-56% disapprove of his performance, according to Gallup's three-day rolling average-in order to narrowly focus on his base of voters.
