Former Mexican President Vicente Fox, a frequent antagonist of President Trump, says the commander in chief's low approval ratings would get him sacked on television.

Fox’s tweet included a graphic highlighting Trump’s poor results in the latest Gallup tracking poll, which found only 37 percent of U.S. adults approve of his job performance while 58 percent disapprove.

Gallup said Trump’s approval rating has sunk eight points since its March 11 tracking poll, when it was 45 percent.

A Fox News survey released last week also found that Trump’s approval rating has dropped 5 points since February. The March 13 poll reported 43 percent approve of Trump’s performance in office, and 51 percent disapprove.

The two polls emerged as Republicans try to unify their party around a bill for repealing and replacing ObamaCare backed by Trump.

Moderate Republicans have expressed their own reservations, with several worrying about how the legislation's cuts to Medicaid.

Trump declared last Friday that the bill has his “100 percent” commitment, adding that ObamaCare itself is “a dead healthcare plan.”

GOP leaders cannot afford more than 21 defections in the House and two in the Senate, assuming all Democrats oppose the legislation.
