Twelve months after his election, President Donald Trump has seen his approval ratings going down, but he has still created a responsible presidency and kick-started the US economy, Richard Vatz, a Towson University professor specializing in presidential communication, told Radio Sputnik.

Since taking office in January 2017, Donald Trump has dominated the headlines pulling the United States out of the Paris Accord, cracking down on immigration and passing a huge tax cut.

“He has accomplished a tremendous amount in his first year of being president. If you look at the economy, if you look at his foreign policy, he has created a much more responsible presidency than many had in the past,” Dr. Vatz said.

He added that even though Trump has seen record disapproval ratings, his support among his core voters remains high.

“The difference between Donald Trump’s support and other support is that among those who do support him the intensity is higher than the support that any president has had previously. [During the war in Iraq] George Bush Sr. had upwards of 93 percent support. Then, within a year, it was 50 percent below. Donald Trump has about 30 to 35 percent of supporters who support him irrespective of what he says. So the intensity of this support among his supporters is greater than any other president’s.”
When asked about the specifics of Trump’s vocabulary, Richard Vatz said that it is more in line with the average person.

“I think he believes that he’s been successful over his entire career by using the style he uses and he is going to continue to use it.
