US President Donald Trump's approval rating shows no improvement

"President Donald Trump said Thursday he expected the presidency to be "easier" than his "previous life" as a real estate mogul".

The voters said he has done a poor job of assembling a team of top advisers in the White House (56 per cent) and keeping his campaign promises (52 per cent).

"Resistance is anchored in defending your policy priorities that are consistent with your perspective, but being willing to work with the other side of the aisle when policies are proposed, that would be good for America", he said. I had so many things going.

"I don't think he's going to be able to do even half of what he claimed", said Bob White, 71, a retired finance worker in Clinton Township in MI. At another, he revealed that it took a conversation with the president of China to realize that the situation on the Korean peninsula was "not so easy".

Not surprisingly, public opinion on Trump is defined by partisanship.

More than nine in 10 people who voted for President Trump last fall approve of the job the commander-in-chief is doing, a new poll showed. The next lowest, Bill Clinton, had a 55 percent approval rating at this point in his administration.

Evans has shown in the past to be a valuable player making six straight Pro Bowls from 2009-2014. He ended up in training camp with the Seahawks, who released him before the regular season.

While the intelligence community and leaders in both parties agree that Russian Federation attempted to influence the election, just 28% percent of Trump voters believe it. In June, July and September - before, during and after Trump began making his general election case - the majority of Americans thought he wasn't ready to hold the nation's highest position.

Yet if the election was run again today he would still beat Democrat Mrs Clinton by 43 per cent to 40 per cent.

But rather than bash Trump, many largely blamed Democrats and Republicans alike, a fractured Congress, the federal judiciary, and what they see as a hostile news media.

Trump was able to flip these counties and dozens more like them powered by an enthusiastic voter base that included many people who had not cast ballots in years, as well as some Democrats who crossed over largely due to their dislike of Clinton.

One hundred days are just a fraction of a president's tenure, and no president has quite matched the achievements of Franklin D Roosevelt, who set the standard by which all are now judged.

Trump, speaking to reporters from Reuters and The Washington Post said he misses the things he could do before becoming president, like driving himself and having private time.
