WASHINGTON (CNN) — Approval ratings for Donald Trump's job performance have been at historic lows, but the President's own report card of his performance has high marks.
Trump indicated that he has been a high achiever these first few weeks in the White House.
"In terms of achievement, I think I'd give myself an A. Because I think I've done great things -- I and my people, but I don't think we've explained it well enough to the American public," he said in an interview that aired Tuesday on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."
"I think I give myself an A in terms of what I've actually done," Trump added.
But the President seemed to think he's just been an average messenger.
"In terms of messaging, I would give myself a C or a C+,'" he said.
Trump also gave himself an A+ for "effort."
"But results are more important (than effort)," he added.
A Quinnipiac University survey released last week found that American voters don't view how Trump is handling his job as favorably. The majority of American voters — 55 percent — disapprove of Trump's performance. Only 38% of American voters approve of Trump's job performance.
