President Donald Trump gave a speech to the United Nations Tuesday where he touted his success as a president.


"I don't believe there has been any administration in the history of this country that has done more in two years -- and we're not even up to two years yet -- than our administration," Trump said during a campaign speech last week.

He repeated that same sentiment to the UN.

"In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country," Trump said.

The audience chuckled.

"So true," he replied, caught off guard by the laughs. "I didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK."

But during the press conference Wednesday, Trump called it "fake news" that he was being laughed at.

"That's fake news, and it was covered that way," he said. "OK. So I said that since my election our economy has become the hottest in the world. Tax reductions, regulations, confidence levels are the highest in 18 years, really soon to be historic. Unemployment is the lowest in the history of our country. You look at black unemployment, you look at Asian unemployment, you look at women, 65 years, the unemployment numbers are among the best we've ever had, ever."

He went on to say that the group was mostly from other countries as if he didn't know what the United Nations was. He then claimed that they weren't "big into clapping, applauding [or] smiling."

"And I heard a little rustle as I said our country is now stronger than ever before. It is true. I mean it is true. I heard a little rustle. And I said, 'It is true.' And I heard smiles," Trump said, though he didn't clarify what a smile sounds like.

"I said, 'I didn't know there would be' -- they weren't laughing at me," he continued. "They were laughing with me. We had fun. That was not laughing at me. So the fake news said, people laughed at President Trump. They didn't laugh at me. People had a good time with me. We were doing it together."
