Trump’s Obama insecurity is endless, as he has falsely stated that he and the former president have the same approval rating for this point in his presidency.
While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!

Let’s break this down with three facts:
1). Trump’s approval rating averages 37.7%.
2). Obama’s approval rating in December 2009 in the weekly Gallup tracking poll ranged from 49%-51%.
3). Trump’s disapproval rating averages 56.4%. Obama’s disapproval in the same period in his presidency ranged from 42%-44%.
Donald Trump is a net 24 to 28 points less popular than Barack Obama. Donald Trump is the least popular (most hated) first-year president in the history of polling. Trump doesn’t have the same approval rating as Obama. I’s not even close. There is no precise metric where Trump and Obama’s approval ratings are equal right now.
The President is so unmanly and insecure that he is desperately but ineffectively trying to measure up to Obama. Donald Trump is stalking Obama. He just can’t let it go. He won’t let it go, and no matter what Donald Trump does, he will never be as cool as Barack Obama.
