Trump dismisses all negative polls concerning his travel ban as “fake news”

Yesterday, Trump used Twitter to dismiss any poll indicating disapproval of his recent executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries as “fake news.”

On February 3rd, CBS News published a poll showing that 51% of randomly sampled adults oppose the travel ban while 45% approve. On the same day, a CNN/ORC poll using similar methodologies found that 53% disapprove of the travel ban while 47% are in favor.

The Trump administration has repeatedly shown itself to be undeterred by metrics or facts.
