    President Donald Trump is beginning his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election.

    In a two-part tweet posted before 7 a.m. Sunday, Trump wrote: “The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt.”

    He continued by saying: “Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm …massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!”

    “Witch hunt” is how Trump characterizes the probe into Russia’s election interference and possible ties to his campaign associates.

    Trump advisers describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy.

    In a third tweet, posted from the “very rustic” Camp David where the president is spending Father’s Day weekend, Trump touted a poll released Friday showing his approval rating reached 50% for the first time.

    Though Trump says his was higher than former President Barack Obama’s numbers, his approval rating on the same day of his first term (June 16, 2009) was 56%, according to Rasmussen.
