“We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning,” tweeted Donald Trump back in 2014. His continued barbs at former president Barack Obama continue to come back to haunt him. Trump, and the majority of the world’s leaders, convened for the U.N. General Assembly in New York on Tuesday. The president gave a speech that was meant to boast the success of his administration, which has vastly changed since he was elected due to firings, employees quitting, and staffers being scooped up by the courts due to the ongoing Trump/FBI/Russia/Stormy Daniels drama. During his speech, Trump bragged about the success of his administration, which was met with a chorus of laughter.
“In less than 2 years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” boasted Trump. “So true,” he continued as the room full of world leaders broke out into laughter. “Didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” replied Trump to the laughter, which prompted several leaders in the room to break out into applause. Trump’s policies have been divisive, to say the least. He has boasted about the unemployment rate falling to its lowest, which is true. But when you factor in the reality that unemployment has been falling for years, it isn’t as impressive. His tax reform is possibly the most historic action Trump has guided, which has helped many small businesses (and big businesses). Trump has also slashed countless regulations, which can be viewed here.
