POLITICS DONALD TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING SLIDES TO 36%, THE LOWEST IT’S BEEN SINCE JANUARY (BARF)

Amid numerous political scandals and an unfurling trade war with China that shows little sign of de-escalation, President Donald Trump lacks the broad confidence of the American public, according to a new AP-NORC poll.
Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job, compared with 36 percent who approve. Predictably, the partisan divides swing favorably or unfavorably towards the president depending on political affiliation. But, notably, the coveted class of self-identified political independents remains opposed to the president, with 65 percent disapproving of the way he is handling his job.
Trump’s approval ratings have not been this low in the monthly AP-NORC survey since January.
While many of the conflicts and controversies that have emerged in recent months pertain to the trade war and Trump’s management of the economy — including a warning sign that a recession may be on the horizon due to a metric known as the inverted yield curve — the public has not been scared off by the president’s economic stewardship. Fifty-one percent disapprove of his handling of the economy, and 46 percent approve. Though this is a net negative rating, it indicates the public is largely divided on the matter, and represents Trump’s highest job approval rating for any category measured in the AP-NORC poll.

Amid claims of anti-Semitism, Trump invokes automaker Henry Ford – Hitler’s ‘inspiration’ San Francisco Chronicle ^ | August 22, 2019 | Allyson Chiu Posted on 8/22/2019, 12:18:21 PM by artichokegrower
President Donald Trump, who recently embraced the title of “King of Israel,” has been repeatedly accused of promoting anti-Semitic tropes this week for his assertions that Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats are “disloyal.”
********************************************“Today is really not the best day for Trump to be taking the side of Henry Ford,” Dan McLaughlin, a contributing columnist at National Review Online, tweeted.

To: artichokegrower.Henry Ford was one of THE most rabid, virulent anti-Semite, who had his workers put copies of THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION in every car’s glove compartment, from the ’20s onward! He and his good friend T.A. Edison HATED all of American Jewry, did everything they could to keep Jews out of businesses ( especially the movie business, which didn’t work ), and wouldn’t hire them to work in their businesses as well.Yes, Ford was a great innovator, did do war work during WW II ( the government kinda forced ALL companies that they could use, for the war effort to do so and the carrot was making money! ); however, the author of this article is correct, in a way…Ford is the wrong example for Trump to use right now.
