The red carpet was literally rolled out for President Trump in Israel for his arrival there Monday morning, as well as for his stop in Saudi Arabia over the weekend.

Back at home, however, polls show his approval rating is at its lowest point of his still-young presidency. WBUR political analyst and pollster Steve Koczela joined Morning Edition to explain that it's too early to determine the impact of the flood of negative headlines over the past weeks and discuss whether President Trump's core supporters will stay with him.

This segment aired on May 22, 2017.
