President Donald Trump's approval ratings have dropped to their lowest point since he assumed office in January, according to Gallup.

Gallup also shows the president's disapproval rating at 58 percent, which is more than double President Obama's at this point in his first term.

A daily survey in the USA has found President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped to 37 per cent, while his disapproval rating's risen to 58 per cent.

By a wide 19-point margin, voters feel the economy is getting better, 48 percent to 29 percent. German Chancellor Angela Merkel paid a tense visit to Washington, while officials in the United Kingdom denounced Trump's claims their intelligence agency had helped to wiretap him as "ridiculous".

Since entering the White House, Trump's approval rating has mostly been in the low 40s, although he registered a high of 45 percent just over a week ago. Before now, his lowest rating was 38 percent on February 16. John McCain, R-Ariz., on March 12 called on Trump to "either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve".
