Trump claimed on Sunday that a new poll shows him with a 40% approval rating among African-Americans, which is not true.
New Fox Poll shows a “40% Approval Rating by African Americans for President Trump, a record for Republicans.” Thank you, a great honor!

Trump’s African-American approval rating is not a record
Trump got the source of the poll wrong:

Rasmussen is a conservative online polling company with a horrible accuracy record. In other words, they’re junk polls that feed the delusions of the Republican media bubble and Donald Trump.
Trump’s real approval rating with African-Americans have hovered between 10%-15%, and regarding voting, it is less than 10%.
Trump posted this tweet in response to the Michael Cohen bombshell that Trump is a racist who has used racist language in private for decades, including the claim that African-Americans are too stupid to vote for him.
No. Donald Trump doesn’t have a 40% approval rating with African-Americans, and only a total idiot would believe that this racist president does, or ever could.
It looks like Trump’s mental breakdown over potentially losing the midterm election has already begun.
