President Donald Trump went on a 30-post Twitter spree Sunday morning boasting of his accomplishments and railing against presumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden as the president's poll numbers continue to slide.
In one post, Trump retweeted a highlight from Fox News' Watters' World where the president's eldest son and adviser bashed Biden's competence.
'It would be truly sad if it wasn't so scary that Joe Biden could be in charge of the nuclear football,' Donald Trump Jr. Told Fox News host Jesse Watters on Saturday night.
'Big China Virus breakouts all over the World, including nations which were thought to have done a great job. The Fake News doesn't report this. USA will be stronger than ever before, and soon!' Trump tweeted in his Sunday morning rant.
According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday, 66 per cent of Americans do not approve of the way the president is managing the crisis – even as Trump continues to try and deflect blame to China.

In the survey, taken July 29-30, Trump's approval in handling coronavirus hit 34 per cent, up one percentage point from his lowest rating from earlier this month since the pollsters starting tracking the figure on the virus in March.
Trump tweeted out a post from his campaign's Twitter with a clip of him demanding a second round of stimulus checks for Americans in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
'President @realDonaldTrump: We want to get stimulus money to the people, Democrats view it as a political issue,' the tweet read along with a clip of him in front of Air Force One.
Trump's overall approval has also slipped to 36 per cent as he struggles to handle the coronavirus crisis, rampant nationwide Black Lives Matter protests and has faced backlash for his relations with foreign adversaries, like Russia and China.
More than half of white Americans disapprove of Trump's handling of the protests, 72 per cent of Hispanic-Americans and a clear majority of black Americans, at 92 per cent, feel the same.
The poll also shows Democrats and independents widely do not approve of the way Trump deals with Russia, but a whopping 80 per cent of Republicans approve
White, black and Hispanic Americans also do no like the way Trump has responded to the prevailing nationwide Black Lives Matter protests
Trump also spent his morning bashing his Democratic rival in a bid to hurt his opponent as the November election approaches and several polls show him losing support in some battleground states.
'Don't believe the lies you hear from the media or on social media about a Biden Victory. This is going to be a very close election. But President Trump has the edge,' Trump retweeted from the Watters' World Twitter with the television host monologuing.
In some other miscellaneous tweets, Trump endorsed several candidates and railed against drug companies.
'When you see the Drug Companies taking massive television ads against me, forget what they say (which is false), YOU KNOW THAT DRUG PRICES ARE COMING DOWN, BIG,' he boasted. 'Favored Nations Clause means USA will pay the lowest price of any nation in the World. Never done before. Watch!!!'

Poll: Majority of Voters Do Not Believe Joe Biden Would Serve All Four Years
The survey asked 1,000 likely voters, “If Biden is elected in November, how likely is it that his running mate will be president before the end of Biden’s four-year term – very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely or not at all likely?”
According to the survey, 59 percent of likely voters believe that the presidential hopeful’s running mate would take the reins from Biden during his first term. Of those, 39 percent believe the hypothetical scenario is “very likely.”
Moreover, the survey found that roughly half of Democrat voters, or 49 percent, also tend to believe it is “likely” that Biden’s running mate will take on the presidency during his first term. Nearly three-fourths of Republicans, 73 percent, and 57 percent of independent voters, hold the same view.
Despite that, less than half of likely voters indicated that Biden’s running mate, whom he had yet to formally announce as of Monday morning, “say Biden’s choice of a running mate is important to their vote this fall.” Only 45 percent indicated that the selection is important, 23 percent categorizing the choice as “very” important.
“This compares to 76% who say generally speaking that a candidate’s vice presidential nominee is important to their vote, with 34% who feel it’s Very Important,” Rasmussen found.
The survey, conducted August 6-9, has a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
Biden is expected to announce his running mate this week, vowing months ago to choose a woman. Prospects include Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Biden, who has come under fire for his stream of odd behaviors and apparent cognitive malfunctions, has stated that whomever he chooses must be “ready to be president on a moment’s notice.”
