Trump Reaches Record-High Approval After Soleimani Killing


After President Donald Trump’s decisive
airstrike that killed Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani — who has killed or orchestrated
attacks that killed thousands of Americans — his approval rating took a sharp turn. Trump’s approval rating continues to climb
after the Democrats impeachment witch hunt. And after he ordered a fatal airstrike on
Iran’s top commander over the weekend, his approvals jumped even more. According to RealClearPolitics, the president’s
now sitting at a record-high 45.3 percent average approval rating. Additionally, it’s worth noting that his
disapproval rating has dropped significantly, going from 58 percent in the middle of December
to 52 percent at the beginning of January. Trump’s latest approval boost was partially
thanks to his swift and decisive action to secure the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, along
with killing top Iranian military leaders, like Soleimani. On Saturday, Trump touted his approval ratings
within the Republican party on Twitter, which are currently at 95 percent. Adding even more hilarity to it all, Trump
was eating ice cream when the U.s. airstrike blasted Soleimani into a thousands pieces. Fox News reported, “CNN’s Kaitlan Collins
penned a blog post headlined, ‘President Trump dined on ice cream as news of the airstrike
broke,’ in which Collins wrote, “As meatloaf and ice cream were served, the Pentagon confirmed
that the U.S. was behind the strikes, the only statement from the administration throughout
the night.” Collins, who clearly tried to attack the president
in her piece, wrote: The scene Friday was similar to the one after
Trump gave the order for American forces to carry out the missile strike on a Syrian airfield
in the spring 2017. After that strike, Trump went into great detail
about the chocolate cake he had with Chinese President Xi Jinping, who was there for a
summit, when he informed him about the series of tomahawk missiles. White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham
responded to CNN saying, “This should be a story about Soleimani planning imminent
attacks on diplomats & how American lives were saved because of @realDonald Trump decisive
actions.” Fox News added, “A current CNN employee
told Fox News, ‘There are plenty of valid reasons to argue against targeting a high-ranking
foreign government official. But our newsroom is so jaded and anti-Trump
that it posted this tweet which lacked any journalistic merit.’”
