Trump decries 'Fake Poll' showing his approval rate in the 30s

President Donald Trump and the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.

That economic anxiety has helped push Trump's job approval numbers down from 44 percent in July to just 38 percent in September, the poll found.

In addition, 6 in 10 Americans surveyed believed a recession is likely to hit the US next year.

Another finding that could be cause for worry at the White House: 43 percent of those surveyed said U.S. trade and economic policies have increased the chance of recession next year, compared to 16 percent who thought that to the contrary they have made recession less likely.

The president wasted little time disputing the poll's results.

The approval rating for the president in relation to the economy also dipped down below half to 48 percent, while his approval for other policies sank below the 40s.

"We have great internal polling, there were fake polls released by somebody that is - it is ridiculous".

Xi reportedly went on to complain to Abe about how the Trump administration has continued to lambaste China at every turn for supporting state-owned companies with subsidies while "the also supporting Boeing with subsidies", in reference to the Chicago-based plane builder. Only 42 percent of white women approved of Trump.

With doubts continuing to fester about his reelection chances, the president reiterated his assurances days later.

Just last week, another round of tariffs on Chinese imports went into effect, placing duties on almost all goods imported into the US, with another round coming on December 15 so as not to put a damper on consumer spending over the holidays.

Trump has often touted America's strong economy as one of his main accomplishments throughout his presidency.

Although 56 percent of those surveyed judged the state of the economy to be "excellent" or "good", that is down sharply from a year ago when those favorable ratings stood at 65 percent. While most of the final polls taken ahead of Election Day showed Clinton ahead of Trump by a margin of 3 to 6 percentage points, only Monmouth University's 6 point lead fell outside of the margin of error.
