President Donald Trump thanked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after experiencing a four-point approval bump in the latest Rasmussen poll after an uproar over his critical tweets.

“Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen,” he wrote on Twitter. “America will never buy your act!”

Rasmussen showed Trump with a 46 percent approval on Friday followed by a 50 percent rating on Wednesday – a jump of four points. A Reuters/Ipsos poll showed Trump’s approval rating among Republicans jumped five points.

Trump commented on the political uproar after he criticized Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats for their anti-American statements.

That led to a House resolution condemning Trump’s statement as racist, followed by further pandemonium on the House floor on Tuesday.
