President Donald Trump was up and tweeting extra early Sunday morning, boasting that his approval ratings are higher than former President Barack Obama despite his being subjected to a "Witch Hunt."


Trump was mostly silent on Twitter on Saturday, before starting off Father's Day by extolling his accomplishments as president, writing:"The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt."

"Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm, massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!" he added.

The president then cited conservative pollster Rasmussen, saying his approval ratings are booming at a solid 50 percent, which he claimed is "higher than O's #'s!"
