A new Gallup poll has been released that shows Trump’s approval rating has reached a new low of 37%. Of those polled, 58% said that they disapproved of President Trump’s job in office. The previous lowest approval rating according to a Gallup poll was 39%.
President Donald Trump has had quite a tumultuous presidency, with the most significant executive orders, being banned by the courts. The first Muslim ban was voted against unanimously, losing in all the courts leading up to the supreme court. Trump decided not to have the Supreme Court look over the case, but instead re-write the executive order.
President Trump re-wrote the executive order, this time not affecting green-card holders and those issued visas. Also, instead of seven countries, it would now be six, excluding Iraq. The indefinite ban on Syrian refugees was lowered to 120 days and it was set to take effect in two weeks instead of right away.
However, a federal judge in Hawaii and a federal judge in Maryland have decided to rule against the executive order. They have issued a temporary ban on the executive order that is commonly dubbed a Muslim ban.
Donald Trump has been having a lot of trouble keeping his executive orders afloat, and it seems that the new “American Health Care Act” is not going so well either.
The house Republicans have proposed a new healthcare bill that would “repeal and replace” Obamacare. However, it seems that this is not what Republicans or Democrats want. Many Republicans, such as Sarah Palin have called it “RINO-Care” or “Obamacare-Lite”, while many Democrats have denounced the bill for leading to 24 million more Americans being uninsured. Democrats also oppose the bill for giving tax-cuts for CEO’s making over 500,000 dollars per year, and that a 64-year-old making 24 thousand dollars per year would pay 14 thousand dollars per year in healthcare insurance.
It seems that Paul Ryan and Donald Trump are hesitant to continue with this bill, and it seems Trump does not want his name on this bill.
