Most Americans do not trust WH under Trump presidency: Poll

Tehran, Aug 8, US President Donald Trump's popularity has waned and reached 'its lowest point' as he has entered the sixth month of his presidency, it is reported by CNN on Tuesday according to a poll.

Six months into his presidency, Donald Trump's overall approval rating stands at its lowest point in CNN polling, while three-quarters of Americans say they can't trust most of what they hear from the White House.

Overall, 38% say they approve of Trump's handling of the presidency, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with 56% saying they disapprove.

Just one other newly-elected president has held an approval rating below 50% at this point in his presidency since modern polling began: Bill Clinton, whose approval rating stood at 44% at this point in 1993, the American news network reported.

[American] Republicans say they are turning down job offers to work for a chief executive [Donald Trump] whose volatile temperament makes them nervous, the US daily Washington Post has written recently.

Also, withdrawal from the Paris Agreement is another example for Trump's easily-changing personality which has been slammed by world leaders and has created mistrust between the Americans towards the White House.
