President Trump has had a very tough week to say the least, with the latest problem being the healthcare fiasco. One of President Trump’s main promises was to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, and with Republican control of both houses of congress, it was expected to be quite easy to get it passed. However, that was not the case, the “American Health Care Act” failed, and after being delayed multiple times it was simply never voted on.
President Trump’s previous record low was 37 percent according to a gallup poll.
After the healthcare fiasco, President Trump’s approval rating has reached a new record low of 36 percent according to a gallup poll.
The highest President Trump has ever polled is 46 percent, but that was right after his inauguration, before he put any legislation or executive orders into place.
President Trump’s time in office has been a very tough one, with both travel ban executive orders being blocked, and the healthcare bill spectacularly failing according to many Americans.
The House Republicans attempted to get the “American Health Care Act” through the House, but it failed for many different reasons. One being that it was seen as simply a “watered down Obamacare”, “RINO-Care”, or “Obamacare-lite”, which led to many Republicans refusing to vote for it. The House Freedom Caucus was a very big force in rejecting the healthcare bill. Additionally, the Democrats fiercely opposed it as the CBO reported that 24 million Americans would lose insurance by 2026, and that premiums would go up for older Americans.
