Trump tweets his frustration with Russia investigation

If there's one thing that's been consistent since the campaign, it's Donald Trump's obsession with poll numbers, especially those that have to do with his approval rating. "That's higher than O's #'s!" "His approval rating has ranged from a high of 59% in late January shortly after he took office to a low of 42% in early April".

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking poll did show President Trump with a 50% approval rating on Friday, June 16 - the first time Trump had reached this high of an approval rating since April, the pollsters noted.

This number stands in stark contrast to the results of other polls that have come out, and is in fact higher by at least eight percentage points than any other rating.

Meanwhile, in other tweets on Sunday, Trump touted his administration's activities.


You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!

"Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm", he wrote Sunday, also pointing to his successful nomination of conservative justice Neil Gorsuch to the top USA court.

In his latest tweets this morning, the president called the investigation a "witch hunt" and appeared to call out Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

U.S. President Donald Trump began his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election.
