CBS Whines About Trump's Vacation, Excused Obama's Golf Fun

US President Donald Trump lashed out at Senator Richard Blumenthal in a series of tweets on Monday, after the Democrat voiced his concern at the Department of Justice cracking down on journalists and leaks. "The president can not stop it by firing the special counsel".

Trump claimed that despite polls indicating some of his core supporters may be growing restless, his base is "far bigger" and "stronger than ever before". "On top of this, the daily dose of insinuations from the media regarding collusion with Russian Federation also help to explain the low approval rating".

President Donald Trump will travel to New York City for meetings next week during a 17-day working vacation from Washington, a White House official confirmed Monday.

The plan to spend the first part of next week in NY was confirmed by White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters, though she did not offer additional details about the goal of the trip. Having hovered under a historically low 40 percent approval rating for months across multiple polls, the president is now the subject of an even more damning survey. In the poll conducted from August 3 to August 6, 59 percent of Republicans indicated they approved strongly of his performance, down 14 points since February.

"His approval rating among Republicans and conservatives and Trump voters is down slightly", she said on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos". Trump's base was viewed as a kind of golden shield that would protect him from any political peril.

Trump was a harsh critic of Barack Obama when the latter was President for taking too many days of vacation.

The President continued to rail against the liberal media, which he says does not recognize or report his successes.

The poll found 43 percent say he can "bring the kind of change the country needs" down from 48 percent in April, and 39 percent say he "can manage the government effectively" a drop from 44 percent in April. Only a quarter of all voters say they believe the information coming out of the White House.

Andrew Hemming, 31, is the White House director of rapid response and is tasked with watching cable news, scouring through Twitter, and reading news online to find stories that portray Trump in a positive light, Politico reported on Tuesday.
