Former President Gerald Ford—whose popularity plummeted after he pardoned his predecessor, Richard Nixon, who resigned in disgrace amid the Watergate scandal—was close: On day 224 of his presidency, Ford's approval rating was 37.4 percent, or 0.2 percentage points better than where Trump stands now, according to FiveThirtyEight.
Even Rasmussen Reports—a survey often criticized for being right-leaning and a company whose results Trump has touted in the past—put Trump's approval rating at just 42 percent on Friday. Fifty-six percent disapproved, according to Rasmussen.
The same day, Trump tweeted about how effective his administration has been, saying, "General John Kelly is doing a great job as Chief of Staff. I could not be happier or more impressed — and this Administration continues to...get things done at a record clip. Many big decisions to be made over the coming days and weeks. AMERICA FIRST!"
Despite the president's claims, much of his tenure in the White House has been defined by negatives, including the ongoing investigations into his connections to Russia, the failure of congressional Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare and his responses to North Korea's continued provocations.
