Trump Lies About Approval Rating, Ignores Shooting

The New York Daily News reports:

President Trump took time out of his busy schedule Sunday for golf and self-praise, but failed to publicly mention a mass shooting at a Jacksonville video game tournament that left three dead, including the gunman. Trump tweeted twice after news of the shooting broke around 2 p.m., once quoting a Washington Times aggregation from Aug. 14 and once citing incorrect approval ratings. Trump was similarly quiet after a January school shooting in Kentucky and an April shooting at a Tennessee Waffle House that left four people dead.

A joint poll released yesterday by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News shows Trump’s overall approval rating is actually 42%. His disapproval rating is 52%.
