Earlier this week, he tweeted about his achievements and attacked poll numbers.
After 200 days, rarely has any Administration achieved what we have achieved..not even close! Don't believe the Fake News Suppression Polls!

In a separate tweet from the day before, he went after the poll numbers again.
The Trump base is far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling). Look at rallies in Penn, Iowa, Ohio…….

The retweet of the Twitter poll comes as his approval rating is only 37% according to the Gallup daily poll.
Here are some reactions to Trump sharing the Twitter poll:
Trump actually believes a Twitter poll — the least scientific poll in existence — proves he’s popular
His insecurity is amazing
