Donald J. Trump is destroying himself before our eyes and Republicans do not seem to care.

Specifically, Trump is wrecking his presidency and reputation with the unpopular government shutdown. For example, Trump’s approval rating fell by 3% during December 2018.

In detail, President Trump (R-New York) had a 42% approval rating in December 2018 and a 39% approval rating in January 2019, the NPR/PBSHour/Marist poll estimates. Hence, Trump lost 3% of his support after just one month of the government shutdown.
