US President Donald Trump’s approval rating has fallen to 36 percent, according a poll released by ABC and the Washington Post on Monday.

Trump has now received the lowest approval rating in his first 6 months in office of any president in 70 years.

At the 100 day mark of Trump presidency in April, the president’s approval rating sat at 42 percent

Trump's disapproval rating now sits at 58 percent, rising five points since April.

According to the poll, 48 percent of Americans said they “disapprove strongly” of the president’s performance.

Trump took to twitter on Monday, criticizing the poll and calling it “inaccurate.”

The ABC/Washington Post Poll,” Trump tweeted, “even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!”

The poll asked participants if they thought it was appropriate for Trump’s senior advisor Jared Kushner and campaign manager Paul Manafort to take a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The poll comes days after Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., released an e-mail chain in which he was told that a Russian lawyer, with whom he set up a meeting, promised damaging information concerning Hillary Clinton obtained as part of the Russian government's effort to elect his father president.
