“In 1939 you were invaded yet again, by Nazi Germany from the west, and the Soviet Union from the east,” Trump said during his address in Warsaw. “That’s trouble. That’s tough.

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.
