According to the latest Gallup poll released over the holiday weekend, the president's numbers have shot up five percentage points in one week, marking his highest approval rating in nearly a month.

In the latest survey 42 percent said they approve of the president's job in office, with 53 percent saying they disapprove.

The polls results are based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 national adults.

But it's not all good news for the 45 president of the United States. FOX News' latest approval rating poll shows Trump with a 40 percent rating, which is five points down from where he was polling the month prior.

Trump's disapproval rating also increased by five points, according to FOX News.

The president is also down three points in the usually more favorable Rasmussen daily tracking survey. After rising to a 48 percent approval rating last week, Trump has dropped back down to 45 percent.

With the president now back in Washington, and daily press conferences with White House press secretary Sean Spicer up in the air, how the Trump administrations handles the growing Russia scandal may be the key to continue to turn Trump's historically low approval ratings around.
