President Donald Trump is apparently attempting to battle a rash of polls all showing the vast majority of American do not believe his lies that the Mueller report – which has yet to be released – totally exonerates him.
In fact, those polls show less than three in ten (29%) of Americans believe Trump has been exonerated. They also show his approval rating has actually dropped from before the Attorney General released a four-page letter that some now think was more of a PR stunt or a cover-up rather than a valid overview the Special Counsel’s exhaustive 22-month investigation.
“Now that the long awaited Mueller Report conclusions have been released,” Trump tweeted Monday morning, “most Democrats and others have gone back to the pre-Witch Hunt phase of their lives before Collusion Delusion took over. Others are pretending that their former hero, Bob Mueller, no longer exists!”

Americans perhaps more than ever now are demanding the release of the full, complete, and unredacted Mueller report – increasingly so, after the Attorney General on Friday expanded the categories that he would exclude from the version he says he will send to Congress by mid-April.
“29 percent of Americans say they believe Trump has been cleared of wrongdoing, based on what they have heard about Mueller’s findings, while 40 percent say they do not believe he has been cleared,” NBC News, citing its own NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll, reported Sunday.
NBC also reports Trump’s approval rating dropped 3 points from February to March. The poll was taken after Attorney General Barr released his 4-page letter.
Amy Klobuchar wins endorsement in first in the nation primary from the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.
"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."
Wake Forest slammed for inadequate response to threatening emails labeled ‘white supremacist terrorism’
Tensions remain high at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC after emails considered "white supremacist terrorism" threatened the school.
"Three months after a set of anonymous, threatening, racist, antisemitic and homophobic emails sent a wave of fear through the sociology department at Wake Forest University, the department chairman says he's still waiting for university leaders to announce a meaningful response," the Associated Press reported Saturday."
Economists warn Trump policies will result in lost jobs and lower wages for American workers
The 20-year-old San Diego bakery Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe went out of business this month after an audit by US authorities found immigrants working there illegally.
In April, a small Nebraska town lost a potato processing plant, and the local revenue it generated, in the wake of an immigration raid on its facilities. A restaurant in New York appears to have suffered similar fate in August.
Farmers say they are planting less, turning to automation, eliminating some crops, leaving them to rot in the field or contemplating selling out of the business altogether -- all because they cannot find enough immigrant labor.
