Trump’s approval rating just hit a new low. But does he even care?

President Trump had a moment of clarity during his wild press conference Thursday. Ever the poll-doubter, he actually acknowledged his polling reality.

“Some of the things I’m doing probably aren’t popular, but they’re necessary for security and for other reasons,” Trump said.

That right there suggests all of Trump’s bluster about how every negative poll is “fake news” is just that — bluster. But it also reveals something else about Trump: He isn’t terribly concerned about being unpopular. All he truly feels the need to do is keep his base happy.

And he’s doing just fine on that count. CONT.
