Still, the only sighting of Mr Trump since he landed in New Jersey was a video that surfaced online on Saturday of the president greeting wedding guests at his club. "Look at rallies in Penn, Iowa, Ohio".
President Donald Trump's approval rating dropped to 32 percent while 59 percent disapprove of the job he's doing, a new IBD/TIPP poll revealed. According to Gallup's weekly tracking averages, 82 percent of Republicans last week said they approve of Trump's performance, down from 89 percent in January. And optimism among whites without a college degree is down more than 20 points since November. The CNN poll pegs it at 38 percent - around where it has been in other polling for a while - while the IBD poll shows it at a painfully low 32 percent.
On Aug. 6, White House counselor and GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway stated that Trump needed to boost his base support. Trump punched back with snark about Blumental having said in a speech, seven years back, that he had served in Vietnam. "Now, whether that prejudices them in one way or another remains to be seen, but it is relevant information for people to have", Conway told "Fox and Friends" in July. Don't worry about a Congress that isn't supporting legislation to get big ticket items done.
"This morning, Trump tweeted he will be working in New Jersey while the White House goes through a long-planned renovation", said Corden.
But his most biting attacks were reserved for Democrat senator Richard Blumenthal, who had just appeared on CNN to talk about the Trump-Russia investigation. In this speech, he made his oft-repeated allegation that the Justice Department's Russian investigation, now directed by special counsel Robert Mueller, is a "witch hunt" and a "hoax".
"Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT talking about hoax Russian collusion when he was a phony Vietnam con artist!" "He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child", Trump wrote. "Now he judges collusion?"
"They are slurs and I am not going to be distracted or bullied by them", Blumenthal said.
