What's more, 48 percent of voters in the survey said they had a "strongly" unfavorable opinion of Trump, while just 27 percent said they had a "strongly" favorable opinion of him.
But Mo Elleithee, director of Georgetown's Institute of Politics & Public Service, corrected Mr. Trump, saying Fox Business misread the poll and that the number is actually his unfavorable rating.
The 58 percent approval rating on the economy shown in the graphic does accurately show what the poll found.
Trump's job approval rating on nearly all the other specific issues polled was also net negative, with the exception of how he handles "jobs".
"It's been a quiet start to the day for President Trump, though he did send out a tweet this morning from the Lou Dobbs show last night on Fox Business", reporter Blake Burman said on behalf of the network.
The increase in Trump's overall rating is the result of single-digit increases in approval among independents and Democrats, of 6 percentage points and 4 percentage points respectively, Gallup said.
After Trump's tweet, the network offered multiple on-air corrections, including one from Dobbs, who said he wanted "to fix something I got wrong".
The president shared the Fox graphic with incorrect poll numbers on his Twitter account to his almost 60 million followers, along with the caption: "Great news!"
Real Clear Politics, which takes an average of a number of polls, shows the president with a 43.2 approval rating and 52.7 disapproval rating.
Dobbs plans to issue a correction on Thursday's program, the Daily Beast reported.
