Eric Trump touted a poll showing a majority of Americans disapprove of his father's performance as president -- and other social media users heaped scorn on him.
The president's son linked to a tweet by Bloomberg News correspondent Sahil Kapur showing President Donald Trump's approval rating had risen slightly to 45 percent, the highest mark of his presidency -- but that a solid 52 percent majority of Americans still disapproved of his job performance.
The younger Trump punctuated his own tweet with three American flags, and other Twitter users mocked him for not understanding how to read polls.
