WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump claimed on Twitter Thursday that “Presidential Harassment” in the form of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation is dragging down his approval ratings.

According to Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll, 49 percent of likely voters approve of his performance as president while 50 percent disapprove.

There is a +/- 2.5 percent margin of error based off a sampling size of 500.

The polling firm gave Trump a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6, citing 42 percent of respondents who “strongly disapprove” of his job compared to 36 percent who “strongly approve.”

Mueller’s office is investigating potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, something that Trump has vehemently denied.

The president’s tweet marks the first time he has taken a swipe against Mueller since his office filed court documents Tuesday related to retired Gen. Michael Flynn.

According to Mueller’s team, Flynn, who served on the Trump campaign and briefly as national security adviser, has provided investigators with “substantial assistance.”

The documents state that he should therefore not be incarcerated after pleading guilty last year to lying to the FBI over conversations he had with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. during the transition period.
