President Donald Trump's approval ratings hit a new all-time low in the latest Gallup poll, with just 41 percent of Americans surveyed saying they like the job he is doing.

Fifty-three percent say he's not doing a good job just three weeks into his presidential term. His approval marks are worse than 10 other presidents since Gallup started its poll, including Barack Obama – who scored 38 on two separate occasions.

The tracking poll averages results over the previous three days with daily results based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 adults.

Trump is the first elected president in Gallup's polling history to receive an initial job approval rating below the majority level – with 45 percent of respondents saying they approved of the way he was handling his new job and 45 percent saying they did not approve.

Trump's first few weeks have been filled with movement and controversy. His executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries was temporarily overturned and, later denied by an appeals court, and his administration has come under fire for false statements.

Trump last week blasted any negative poll as "fake news" after CNN released results from a poll saying Americans opposed his immigration order.
