Trump Tells Tabloid: I'm 'Most Popular Person' in GOP History

Trump says recent poll shows he's more popular than Lincoln | TheHill

They want the same thing I want.

But on Thursday, Trump was back again touting his approval numbers - this time making the perplexing statement that he's more popular among Republicans than President Abraham Lincoln. "Beating Lincoln. I beat our Honest Abe".

Thank you to all of my great supporters, really big progress being made. Economy is ROARING. Supreme Court pick getting GREAT REVIEWS. However, as the New York Times noted, President George W. Bush was even more popular among Republicans at this point in his first term, buoyed by post-9/11 unity.

"Lincoln died a decade before the telephone was invented and about eight decades before presidential approval polling began", Barro said in a tweet. And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the United Kingdom agree with me.
