You knew this was coming, didn’t you?
President Trump claimed Tuesday that comments he made at the United Nations General Assembly were “meant to get some laughter.” The audience started to laugh when Trump boasted about his presidential achievements.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said to the assembly. After the laughter died down, Trump noted that he “didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK.”
Trump earlier today when foreign leaders laughed at his claim about his presidency being the most successful: “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK.”
Several hours later: “Oh it was great. Well, that was meant to get some laughter.”
