This also the third time just this month that the president's numbers have hit a new low in the Morning Consult/Politico survey. Trump entered May with a 48 percent approval rating before it dipped to 44 percent on May 4th, then 42 percent on May 12th and finally 41 percent on Friday.

Recent reports that the president shared classified information during a White House meeting with Russian officials seemed to play a role in the president's dip in support. A majority of those polled, Fifty-eight percent, said they viewed the disclosure inappropriate.

The survey comes as Trump is set to embark on his first foreign trip as president amid growing turmoil.

The survey polled 1,970 registered voters and was conducted between May 16-18.
