A majority of likely American voters say that President Trump is a “bully” who “says what he thinks”, according to a new Fox News poll surveying how voters would describe him.

In a Fox News poll released Wednesday, 69 percent of Republicans said the news media is a bigger danger to society, compared with just 18 percent who responded that white supremacists are more of a problem. But that procedure, known as “reconciliation”, also holds that any tax cuts that add to the nation’s long-term deficit would have to be set to expire. Roughly half of the public (52%) say Trump is not tough enough in dealing with Russian Federation; 35% say he is about right, while 6% say he is too tough.
