Nearly half of voters think Donald Trump does his best job when it comes to fighting terrorism.

According to the results of the latest POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, 49 percent of voters gave the president an “A” or “B” when asked to grade how he handles terrorism. He received higher scores in this area than any other.

That same poll — which surveyed 1,992 registered voters — found that 34 percent of voters give Trump an “A” or a “B” on foreign relations, but 58 percent gave him a “C,” “D” or “F.”

However, 39 percent of voters did give him good marks when asked how he was handling the economy and job creation.

In the last month, Trump has launched a missile strike on a Syrian airbase after a chemical attack in the country left more than 80 people dead and the U.S. military dropped the “mother of all bombs” on an ISIS cave complex in Afghanistan.
