President Trump’s approval rating rose to 51% this week following the Democrats’ latest push to impeach the Commander-in-Chief over his private phone conversation with the leader of Ukraine.
“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove,” reports Rasmussen.
The data comes just one day after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officially launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump’s private conversation with another world leader.
The White House released the official transcript Wednesday morning.
Despite hours of breathless media coverage regarding President Trump’s 33-minute phone conversation with the leader of Ukraine last July, key facts and important issues are completely ignored by major news networks.
The Democrat-fueled fantasy is now causing renewed calls for impeachment, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and more than 200 liberal lawmakers.
Here’s what you need to know to parse the facts from the fiction:
Claim: The President “promised” Ukraine financial or military aid in exchange for political dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Fact: The official transcript reveals no promise was ever made during the entire conversation.
Claim: The President demanded Ukrainian officials work with Rudy Giuliani and the Attorney General to investigate Joe Biden.
Fact: Joe Biden’s name came-up TWICE -in the same paragraph- during a 33-minute conversation. Giuliani and Barr were mentioned in just one exchange.
“The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son,. that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me,” said Trump during the call.
