Trump Accuses Fox News of Giving Him ‘Bad Polls,’ Harris Faulkner Protests: ‘There’s Positive News’ Here

President Donald Trump made a claim about Fox News during his interview with Harris Faulkner that took her by surprise.

Faulkner brought up the latest Fox News poll showing his approval rating at 46 percent. Trump immediately claimed that’s “higher than Obama” and took it as a positive because of how many “bad stories” there are about him.

But as they kept talking about this poll, it was clear the President was a little bothered by it, because he said at one point, “Frankly, Fox has always given me a bad poll. I don’t know why that is.”

“Really?!” a surprised Faulkner asked. “But there’s positive news in this, though.”

He did note the good numbers he got on the economy, but the overall poll (which you can read here) is a mixed bag for the president.
