    Donald Trump Jr. shared a poorly edited still from a TV report comparing “Trump and Obama by the numbers,” which boosted the current president’s approval rating by a whopping 10 percentage points.

    The image, which may or may not have been edited by Trump Jr. himself, was removed by Trump Jr. from his Instagram account after people dragged him on social media.

    It showed President Donald Trump's approval rating to be at 50 percent, according to polls. It's actually at 40.

    "I guess there is a magic wand to make things happen," Trump Jr. wrote.
