“When they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London. I used to love London as a city – I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there? And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the UK agree with me. Many people are delighted.
“I get thousands of notifications from people in the UK that they love the President of the United States. They want the same thing I want. You know, a poll just came out that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. Beating Lincoln. I beat our Honest Abe. But the people of the UK, and I’ll bet if you had an honest poll, I’d be very strong. They want the same thing I want. I love the UK.” – Glorious Leader, whining to Murdoch’s The Sun.
Deep in that Sun interview, Trump brags that his poll numbers with Republicans are even better than Lincoln’s were. Lincoln died a decade before the telephone was invented and about eight decades before presidential approval polling began. https://t.co/9I5BOotua4
