CNN anchor Jake Tapper delivered a stinging critique of President Donald Trump in the wake of a poll that showed Americans disapprove of his actions this month.
"President Trump is a man who looks to numbers and to ratings," Tapper said on "The Lead." "These numbers, sir, these numbers are disastrous."
Tapper cited unfavorable results from a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday that called into question Trump's ability to lead the nation.
In the poll, 68% of respondents said Trump was not levelheaded, 62% said he doesn't provide the US with moral leadership, 61% said he wasn't honest, and 62% said Trump was doing more to divide the country than unite it.
Finally, 59% of respondents said Trump has encouraged white supremacist groups rather than discourage them.
"You are no doubt pleasing your base, but your behavior is causing great concern among the majority of the American people," Tapper said.
