approve of mr. trump's job performance so far. the president's disapproval rating has jumped to 58%. the president shrugged off the poor grades with a tweet quote will abc "washington post" poll even though almost 40%, is not bad at this time. whereas just about the most inaccurate poll around election time. errol barnett has more from the weekend white house, mr. trump's golf club in new swrersee. >> reporter: protestors opposed to the u.s. women's open being held at president trump's golf course took their message to the roads of bedminister, new jersey, this weekend. >> but this morning, mr. trump thanked his supporters and accused so called fake news media of scorning his son. >> very troubling. and obviously moves our whole investigation to another level. >> reporter: donald trump, jr.'s meeting at trump tower last year which included top campaign staff and russians linked to the kremlin is being

6:14 pm
president's flesh and blood, who operates outside of the white house. so how does the white house defend somebody who they're not really, it's not their job to defend him. but where everything that happens with respect to the president's son, does have a real impact on the president and his agenda. >> quijano: well, i want to ask you about health care as well, john. senate majority leader mitch mb con el announced saturday that the senate will delay a vote on the health-care bill while senator mccain recovers from surgery. how do you think the delay will affect the bill's chances in the senate? >> well, the problem is that there is a very narrow margin that mitch mcconnell has to get. he can only lose two republicans to get this bill passed and he's got a lot more than two who have problems with it. that is not really going to be solved by more time. they may find a way to twist some arms and suffer some more goodies but we heard from rand paul today that he's not going to sign on so they can only afford to lose one more. >> quijano: john dickerson in washington for us, thanks very much. iran said today it has l

for his jailers. >> for much of the 18 months i was in prison my iranian intergators told me that "the washington post" did not exist. that no one knew of my plight, and that the united states government would not lift a finger for my release. >> reporter: in fact, there was a global effort to free rezain culminating in his release in january 2016. rezaian was released as part of a prisoner swap during the obama presidency. the terms of the deal were criticized by then candidate trump, now it will be the trump administration that has to wrestle with exactly how to deal with this latest imprisonment, elaine? >> quijano: debra patta, thanks. flooding is still a major problem in the upper midwest. in northern illinois the fox river is expected to keep rising until tuesday. people in the area say it is the worst flooding they've seen in decades. near
