Trump accuses Mueller of 'presidential harassment'

President Trump on Thursday explained why his approval rating is at 50% despite his many accomplishments.

“Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last almost two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge’s, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen,” Trump tweeted. “It’s called Presidential Harassment!”

Conservative-leaning Rasmussen Reports publishes a daily presidential tracking poll.

Hours prior, in another tweet, the president wrote: “Working hard, thank you!” and shared an image that highlighted the approval rating and its source.

This is not the first time Trump has dismissed special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Trump wrote last month: “Did you ever see an investigation more in search of a crime? At the same time Mueller and the Angry Democrats aren’t even looking at the atrocious, and perhaps subversive, crimes that were committed by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. A total disgrace!”
