Trump praises himself for meeting with Dems: ‘My performance got great reviews… the ratings were fantastic’
President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised himself over a Tuesday meeting with Democrats on immigration reform.
According to the president, the 55-minute televised meeting with Democrats had “great ratings” and the news media sent him notes to compliment his performance.
“We brought them together in this room and it was a tremendous meeting,” Trump opined in a televised address to his cabinet. “Actually, it was reported as incredibly good and my performance — some of them called it a performance, I consider it work — but it got great reviews by everybody other than two networks who were phenomenal for about two hours.”
“And then after that, they were called by their bosses and said, ‘Oh, wait a minute,'” the president continued. “Unfortunately, a lot of those anchors sent us letters saying that was one of the greatest meetings they’ve ever witnessed. And they were great for about two hours. They were phenomenal.”
Trump added: “They probably wish they didn’t send us those letters of congratulations but it was good. I’m sure the ratings were fantastic. They always are.”
The president predicted that “the media will ultimately support Trump because if Trump doesn’t win in three years, they’re all out of business.”
“You guys will be out of business,” he warned members of the media who were present.
