Trump has lowest approval rating in history after 100 days in office

President Donald Trump has the lowest job approval rating of any president after their first 100 days than any in history, according to the latest Gallup poll released on Saturday.

Even with the president's approval rating inching up a few percentage points this past week, Trump's 42 percent approval is still low enough to earn him the worst rating of any president 100 days into their term since Gallup started tracking presidential job approval.

While 42 percent of those surveyed said they approve of the president's job thus far, another 53 percent said they disapprove.

Trump's job approval rating hit their lowest point of his first 100 days in late March at 35 percent.

At the 100-day mark Trump's predecessor former President Barack Obama had a 65 percent approval rating. Former President George W. Bush before him sat at 53 percent 100 days into his first term.

Former President Bill Clinton has the second lowest 100-day approval rating with 45 percent.

Trump himself has called the 100 day marker "ridiculous.

During his presidential campaign he released a "Contract with the American Voter" which laid out his "100-day action plan to Make America Great Again."

President Trump entered the White House with the lowest job approval rating in history, and now he closes out his first 100 days as commander in chief the same way.

Here's a breakdown of past presidential approval ratings 100 days in, according to Gallup
