Half of voters believe Trump is unable to serve as President

Most voters (52 percent) said they weren't confident in President Trump's ability to keep the country safe from terrorism and 50 percent said he wasn't "able to serve as commander-in-chief".

President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped to its lowest point since he was inaugurated in January, a new poll has found.

Fifty three percent said that they disapproved of Trump's performance as president, up three percent from the previous week.

The poll was conducted after a Washington Post report claimed Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a White House meeting last week.

A current White House official is a significant person of interest in the law enforcement investigation of possible ties between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation, the Washington Post has reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

About 100 firefighters saluted the ambulance that carried Deem to the Bexar County Medical Examiner's office early Friday morning. The other two firefighters were transported to a local hospital, but their conditions were not released.


Later in the week, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to oversee an independent probe into contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. And by Thursday, the final day of the poll, Trump had declared efforts to investigate him a "witch hunt".

Trump's bad week has also taken a toll on his approval rating, bringing it to 41 percent, a new low charted by Morning Consult and POLITICO.

While Mr Trump remains popular with members of his own party, many rank-and-file Republicans appear to have backed off their support for the President during the past week. A Reuters/Ipsos poll last week put that number at 16 percent.

The Reuters poll was conducted online in English across the United States with 1,971 adult respondents, including 721 Republicans and 795 Democrats. It has a credibility interval, a measure of accuracy, of 3 percentage points for the entire group and 4 percentage points for the Democrats and Republicans.
