The latest Rasmussen poll shows that President Trump’s first foreign trip was not only a success there, but is even translating to a boost in approval numbers among Americans.
Trump’s numbers have spiked a bit over recent days, jumping four points in the past week.
Those figures still aren’t all that impressive, but a rise shows that the foreign trip is doing Trump some good after a relentless assault by the American media over the last several weeks.
While President Donald Trump continues his first foreign trip as commander in chief, a new poll suggests his time abroad may have been good for his approval among Americans back home.
The president’s approval rating spiked four percentage points this week, jumping from 44 percent on Monday to now 48 percent on Wednesday, according to the latest the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll. The poll also shows Trump with a 52 percent disapproval rating.
Pundits and analysts have noticed the striking difference in how the President has been treated in such countries as Saudi Arabia and Israel, in contrast with the way he is perpetually abused by press in the United States.
Here is just a small smattering of headlines from Israeli newspapers regarding the President’s trip:

Conservative commentator, Charles Krauthammer, explains that Trump’s trip to the Middle East shows that “America is back.”

“America is back. That’s the story.”
Will President Trump’s foreign trip finally earn him some respect back in America?
