The number of voters who said they were happy with how things were going in the US has fallen to 35 per cent, the lowest score since 2013.

It gives him a net disapproval rating of -14 points, his worst score to date. A previous poll conducted around 100-days into his administration put his ratings at minus three points.

The only Fox News poll to give Mr Trump a positive rating was his first, conducted in February. 

When asked who posed a greater threat to the United States, white supremacists or the media, 40 per cent said the media and 47 per cent said white supremacists. 

The poll was based on interviews with 1,006 randomly selected registered voters.

Mr Trump has been criticised for not meeting with victims of Hurricane Harvey while he marvelled at the size of crowds during his brief trip to Texas. 

The White House clarified that while the President had said he had witnessed the hurricane’s destruction “first hand,” it did not mean he had met with victims of the storm.

Mr Trump also tweeted to say “talking is not the answer” to the current diplomatic crisis with North Korea. His came after Pyongyang launched a missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido, further raising tensions.
