President Donald Trump’s approval ratings have continued to rise because of the president’s “leadership and compassion,” Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera said Friday on “Fox and Friends.”
“It’s no accident that his approval rating across the board is ticking up,” Rivera said. “Why is that? It’s because he has shown leadership and compassion and understanding of suffering in terms of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and now Hurricane Maria. He has really stepped up to the plate.”
“The other reason the president’s popularity ticked up is this strength and reason and steadiness he is showing with the ‘Rocket Man,’” he added.
By demanding harsher sanctions and calling out North Korea in his U.N. speech, Trump has drawn a clear line in the sand and put any allies of North Korea on notice, Rivera said.
