Majority Of Republicans Believe Trump Is A Better President Than Abraham Lincoln
After Trump tweet on being the most poorly treated president in U.S. history, a recent poll by The Economist/YouGov found 53 percent of Republicans believe that Trump is a better president than Abraham Lincoln was. The poll surveyed 1,500 Americans.
There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have. The Democrats are frozen with hatred and fear. They get nothing done. This should never be allowed to happen to another President. Witch Hunt!
