President Donald Trump and his administration weren't focused on "silly" polls that showed the president with low approval ratings, but were engaged instead on "actual problems that Americans are facing," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

"The numbers, frankly, what we are focused on and that this administration cares about are not poll numbers," Sanders said, The Washington Times reported.

"The numbers we're focused on have to do with actual problems that Americans are facing. The numbers that we're focused on are the ones that actually impact day-to-day lives for all Americans. That's what we're focused on, certainly not silly polls that frankly weren't much use to us during the election, and certainly I don't think are now," Sanders added.

Various surveys show the president's job-approval rating currently below 40 percent, but Sanders maintained she didn't place much stock in poll numbers.

"I think a lot of those polls are the same polls that predicted that Donald Trump would never be the president, and he's sitting in the Oval Office as I stand here," said Sanders. "I don't have a lot of faith in a lot of those polls."
