Seventy percent of Americans believe US President Donald Trump’s actions as the country’s leader are not fitting of someone in his position, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Monday.
Seventy percent of survey respondents said Trump’s behavior as president was “unpresidential,” while 24 percent said his actions were “fitting and proper.”
