The Department of Commerce reported earlier this month that the US economy grew at a 2.6 percent annual rate during the April-June quarter, an upward revision that was partly attributed to a boost from trade.
"Just 39 percent of likely US voters give the president good or excellent marks for the way he is handling economic issues," a press release accompanying the poll said.
"Forty-four percent rate his economic performance as poor."
Earlier in the day, Trump said on Twitter that the US stock market is "at an all-time high."
