Out of the last dozen presidents, only Trump and President Gerald Ford saw their approval numbers come in below 50 percent, according to the Washington Post.

We must keep calling these ideas what they are, and to do that we need a shared understanding of what words mean. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has only said that "more details" of the plan will be revealed. Noting that it is stagnant wages and other factors, not an oversized tax burden that is most harming USA workers and families, Biven says that, "At some point, policymakers genuinely concerned about boosting incomes for middle-class families will have to realize that middle-class tax rates are a pathetically weak lever to pull, and they should move on to other policies that will actually help these families".

Overall, Americans remain nearly evenly split on Trump's competence, with 47% saying he is "somewhat" or "very competent", while 49% say he is "not too competent" or "not competent at all".

On April 18, Trump boasted that "no administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days" than his own.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted by Langer Research found that 96 percent of Trump voters would vote for him again, even as 53 percent of voters disapprove of his first 100 days in office. He talked at length about saving taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars on the price of F-35 fighter jets.

Trump is signing a flurry of executive orders this week as he approaches his 100th day in office and looks to rack up accomplishments to tout. John ThuneJohn ThuneGOP chairman not expecting infrastructure money in Trump's tax plan Disconnect: Trump, GOP not on same page Seven major players in Trump's trillion infrastructure push MORE (R-S.D.), chairman of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, told reporters Tuesday. Trump can rend immigrant families in the name of "heart", destroy healthcare in the name of "life", purge minority voters in the name of "justice", and roll back women's autonomy in the name of "freedom". It is pushing the House to vote this week on repealing Obamacare, and it is risking a government shutdown in an effort to make Democrats pay for a border wall with Mexico, instead of just passing a straight extension of current funding levels.

Aaron Hernandez's CT hometown prepares for funeral
Hernandez's family is planning a private funeral for the former National Football League star in his hometown in Bristol, Conn. However, a judge recently ruled that all three letters should be handed over to Aaron's fiancée Shayanna.

When asked, "Do you (regret supporting Trump), or do you (think that supporting Trump was the right thing to do) in that election?" In 2010, Trump suggested those involved with WikiLeaks should face the death penalty, after the organization WikiLeaks published government documents leaked by Chelsea Manning (then known as Bradley Manning).

Trump has never really had either.

TRUMP: Number One, there's great responsibility.

TRUMP: I am not involved in that decision, but if Jeff Sessions wants to do it, it's OK with me.

But the bad news wasn't Trump's alone.

Furthermore, his three months-plus in office have amounted to a swift education in a world wholly unfamiliar to a 70-year-old who spent his career in real estate and reality television.
