PRESIDENT Donald Trump took to social media on Wednesday morning to boast he has been named the most admired man in the United States.
Trump also insisted he beat President-elect Joe Biden in the "most admired" poll as the 2020 election was "rigged with fake votes."
The 74-year-old president acknowledged his support from Americans just one day after he ended Barack Obama's 12-year run as the "most-admired man in America."
Trump tweeted: "'Barack Obama was toppled from the top spot and President Trump claimed the title of the year’s Most Admired Man.
'Trump number one, Obama number two, and Joe Biden a very distant number three. That’s also rather odd given the fact that on November 3rd, Biden allegedly racked up millions more votes than Trump, but can’t get anywhere close to him in this poll.
'No incoming president has ever done as badly in this annual survey.'"
The President added: "@[email protected] That’s because he got millions of Fake Votes in the 2020 Election, which was RIGGED!"
Trump has been making fraud claims as he is trying to save his presidency.
He even released a 14-minute long video last week about what he called "the theft of the presidential election."
Gallup's annual survey, which was released on Tuesday, revealed Americans are most likely to name the 45th president of the United States as the most admired man in 2020.
According to Gallup's findings, 18 percent of Americans named President Trump as the most-admired man.
Fifteen percent of Americans picked Obama, six percent chose President-elect Biden, and three percent revealed their admiration for Dr Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Only two percent of the survey respondents showed their admiration for 84-year-old Pope Francis.
Following behind Pope Francis in the 2020 top 10 list of most admired men were Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Bill Gates, LeBron James, and Dalai Lama.
President Trump's 2020 spot on the most admired spectrum, marks the 10th year in a row the 74-year-old former TV personality placed among the top 10 men, the survey results explains.
However, the amount of times Trump placed in the top 10 is just half the amount of Bill Gates, who had been placed in the selected group 21 times.
Obama has been chosen in the top ten group 15 times, including this year.
Forty-eight percent of Republicans picked Trump for most admired in 2020 and 32 percent of Democrats selected Obama for the top choice.
Dr Fauci was select by five percent of Democrats and one percent of Republicans.
Meanwhile, Michelle Obama has been crowned America's favorite woman for the third year in a row.
Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris – the first woman ever elected to office – grabbed 6 percent of the votes – was chosen for second place.
In third place was First Lady Melania Trump, who received four percent of the vote.
According to the Gallup poll, results "are based on telephone interviews conducted December 1-17, 2020, with a random sample of 1,018 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
"For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is plus or minus four percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level."
