President Donald Trump is claiming that his approval rating either is or will eventually be as high as 65 percent, despite the fact that his average job approval has never exceeded 46 percent.

On Friday, Trump posted a thank you message to the 50 percent of Rasmussen poll respondents who approve of the job he is doing, writing “Thank you! #MAGA2020”

In that poll, which is a consistent outlier in Trump’s favor, 4 percent disapproved of Trump’s performance.

On Saturday morning, Trump retweeted that same message, and appeared to claim that either Rasmussen’s generous rating was significantly undercounting his support, or that his support will grow significantly by the time the next election rolls around. “You can add 10% or 15% to this number,” Trump tweeted, and extolled the performance of the U.S. economy.

You can add 10% or 15% to this number. Economy doing better than EVER before! https://t.co/o59vI5tzXn
