The Note: Trump reaches a low even he can't ignore

A new ABC-Post poll shows 67 percent of Americans don't like Trump's tweets.


  • Few want a tweeter-in-chief: The ABC News-Washington Post poll out this morning shows that 67 percent of Americans don't like President Trump's use of Twitter and 70 percent say Trump has acted in an "unpresidential" manner since taking office.
  • Summer slide: A new ABC News-Washington Post poll shows Trump's six-month approval rating at 36 percent, the lowest of any president at this point in 70 years.
  • More to the meeting … At least eight people were in the room for Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, CNN reports. That's four more than he originally said were there. And 63 percent of Americans say it was inappropriate for the younger Trump to take that meeting, according to the ABC-Post poll.
  • No vote, not yet. An unexpected delay for health care, with no CBO score coming today, and Senate leaders delaying action until Sen. John McCain recovers from surgery.
  • It's "Made in America" week for the White House but will it break through? And what of Ivanka Trump products manufactured abroad?
