President Donald Trump's approval rating jumped to 45 percent in the days following the president suggesting US military action against North Korea, a poll released Friday shows.

Donald Trump followed up his rolling disaster of press events Thursday by ending the day the way he started it: humblebragging about a poll that really wasn't all that good news for him.

However, according to an article in the Boston Globe, quoting an expert in the realm of presidential power, Trump has nearly "unchecked authority to order the use of conventional or nuclear weapons against North Korea".

To be clear, 45% is terrible, but compared to the mid-to-low 30's he's seeing in other polls, I guess it doesn't seem so bad.

Trump is facing criticism for his threat earlier this week of "fire and fury" if North Korea threatens the U.S.

On Friday, Mr Trump tweeted that United States military solutions were "fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

But Friday's approval rating is Trump's highest daily mark since July 12 when he also received a 45 percent favorable response, figures provided by Rasmussen reveal.
