President Donald Trump’s latest Twitter rant had many people asking, “Just who is General E. Watch?” In a series of tweets, Trump called out “fake new polls” in regards to his approval rate and said that those polls were “totally wrong” in general election polls.

“The two fake new polls released yesterday, ABC & NBC, while containing some very positive info, were totally wrong in General E. Watch!” Trump tweeted Monday morning. The “General E. Watch” Trump was referring to was the “General Election Watch,” the polls that forecasted who would win the presidency. On Sunday, Trump insisted that he “would still beat Hillary [Clinton] in popular vote,” despite the fact that the former Democratic presidential nominee won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election by nearly 2.9 million votes.

The recent ABC/Washington Post poll found that 53 percent of people disapproved of Trump’s performance, while the NBC/Wall Street Journal found that 54 percent of people disapproved. Trump has had historically low approval ratings from the moment he entered the White House, which has continued in the days leading up to his first 100-days-in-office milestone.

Trump then proceeded to tweet about the “badly needed border wall” on the U.S.-Mexico border Monday morning. “The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)!” Trump tweeted. “If ….the wall is not built, which it will be, the drug situation will NEVER be fixed the way it should be! #BuildTheWall” He continues to claim that Mexico will pay for the wall “in some form” later. The border wall is projected to cost more than $20 billion.

His 100th day in office on April 29 is expected to be marked with a “big rally” in Pennsylvania.
