(Newser) – It took President Trump just eight days to make history in the Oval Office—but don't expect him to boast about the feat on Twitter. According to Gallup, Trump has become the president to fastest reach majority disapproval, with 48% disapproving of the job he's doing as president as of Thursday, compared to 45% who approved. As of Saturday, the figures were 51% disapproving and 42% approving. A tweet from a pollster shows how exceptional this is, per the Los Angeles Times: Former President Obama didn't see majority disapproval until two and a half years into his presidency, former President George W. Bush lasted over three years, and former President Clinton went 573 days.
