President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to tout achievements from his first year in office and rip "Fake News" and the U.S. Postal Service.
Repeating the claim that he is unfairly maligned by mainstream news outlets, the president said his approval rating was "approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009."
The president apparently was referring to polling by Rasmussen Reports, which reported an approval rating of 46 percent for Trump on Dec. 28, and 47 percent for former President Barack Obama on the same day in 2009.
Other polling services, such as Gallup, YouGov and Ipsos, put the president's approval rating at lower than 40 percent.
The president also retweeted a series of posts from Republican politico Charlie Kirk, executive director of Turning Point USA, a conservative political organization for college students. Kirk appeared on Fox Business channel Dec. 22, saying that Trump's accomplishments in his first year have been "truly historic."
Departing from his list of accomplishments, the president lashed out against the Postal Service.
The president's charge that Amazon received special treatment from the Postal Service was debated over the summer in the pages of The Wall Street Journal.
"An April analysis from Citigroup estimates that if costs were fairly allocated, on average parcels would cost $1.46 more to deliver," Josh Sandbulte, a money manager, wrote in an op-ed. "It is as if every Amazon box comes with a dollar or two stapled to the packing slip—a gift card from Uncle Sam."
The president has attacked the company in the past for harming retailers, and because CEO Jeff Bezos also owns The Washington Post.
In July, the president posted a message to his Twitter account asking: "Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?"
Amazon shares opened lower after the president's missive.
Shortly after the tweets, Trump went to his golf club in Palm Beach, Florida.
