President Donald Trump held another one of his infamous "chopper pressers" Thursday afternoon, telling reporters that his approval rating would be 70-75% if not for the "phony" Mueller investigation and bias from the "fake news media."
"Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last almost two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge’s, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen," said Trump.
Trump blasted Mueller's probe as "Presidential Harassment!"
The President also snapped back at a reporter who asked him what he hoped to accomplish with his "personal attacks on Pelosi" this week.
“When you say ‘a personal attack,’ did you hear what she said about me long before I went after her?" Trump asked. "Did you hear? She made horrible statements. She knows they are not true.”
“She said terrible things, so I just responded in kind,” he added. “Look, you think Nancy is the same as she was? She's not.”
