Majority of Americans believe Trump is 'tearing the country apart'


By comparison, just 15 percent of Americans shared they agree with Trump on almost all of the hot-button issues of the day.

Respondents were similarly split on how they felt about Trump's response to the Charlottesville protests, with 72 percent of Republicans approving of the president's response and 91 percent of Democrats disapproving. Trump's base clearly has reservations about him, and those reservations are causing it to deteriorate slowly - albeit more slowly than people perhaps thought.

Still, in a state where Trump won by less than a percentage point, his backers' complaints are a warning sign for the Republican president. He is a senior editor of National Review and the author of "The Party of Death: The Democrats, the Media, the Courts, and the Disregard for Human Life". The corresponding figures for all voters were 28 and 14 percent respectively, reflecting strong opposition from Democrats and independent voters. In a surprising endorsement of Keynesian economics, he claimed that allowing "middle-income Americans" to "keep more of their hard-earned paychecks" would boost economic growth, because such households would "go out and spend their money" on products (even though his tax plan, and all of the congressional GOP's, concentrates gains on high-income households who would be less likely to spend their tax cut savings).

There was other criticism in the poll as well: 44 percent of voters said Trump was "very" or "extremely" unstable, while another 16 percent said he was "somewhat" unstable.

US, Russia continue to negotiate with Gulf countries over crisis
In Doha, Lavrov and Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani mulled the developments of the current Gulf crisis. Qatar denies the accusations and has refused to meet the quartet's conditions for normalisation of relations.

The poll was conducted over the telephone between August 27 and August 29.

Trump's embrace of racism and hate is tearing America apart, according to 56 percent of the voters in a Fox News poll.

The descriptors least used to describe Trump were all top answers for other past presidents. His absence at President Trump's event in Missouri has captured a spotlight of its own. Whatever side Trump is on and whatever defenses he raises, his cult follows. Recent polls have shown that Republicans approve of Trump's performance in similar numbers.

I know, I know: They claim that if only they had a bigger majority in the Senate, they could finally deliver on decade-long promises to be fiscally responsible. The Hate Trump media couldn't stop him.

Eid-el-Adha : Muslims in Indonesia pray against religious extremism
It is traditional to sacrificing an animal and give an equal share to the less fortunate, to relatives and for your own family. The final days of hajj coincide with the Eid al-Adha holiday, or "Feast of Sacrifice", to commemorate Ibrahim's test of faith.

Hawley has so far declined to comment on Danforth's admonishment of Trump. Just 25 percent picked the "like Trump" option.

Dissatisfaction with the state of the nation jumped 11 points since April, to 64 percent.

At issue is what assumptions are included in the budget baseline used to score tax changes: current policy or current law. From Aug. 13-21, 9% cite this concern, compared with 2% in earlier polling. For these people, whenever Trump says or does something regarding minorities that others find horrifying, they see this as evidence that he is fighting for them and leveling the playing field (remember they think they're the victims). Trump draws less confidence in his ability to make wise decisions about immigration and the use of nuclear weapons (40% each).

"I'm going to be there, and I'm going to be there from the moment he steps off that plane and once I get back to Washington next week I look forward to sitting down with him and my colleagues, to getting this across the finish line", Wagner told Allman.

Merkel, Macron eye deeper eurozone integration after German election
The 28-nation European Union has not done enough to balance the distribution of migrants or provide services for them, she said. Merkel reiterated her criticism of European Union countries, which opposed the "fair distribution" of refugees in Europe.

Throughout the two-hour discussion, Trump's demeanor and rhetoric loomed large, but nearly no mention was made of the ongoing investigation into possible contacts between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.
