On Thanksgiving, Trump said he was most thankful for himself, as he spent the holiday weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
Trump was on a phone call with members of the media and the military early Thursday morning when one reporter asked him what he was “most thankful for” this year.
“For having a great family and for having made a tremendous difference in this country. I made a tremendous difference in the country. This country is so much stronger now than it was when I took office that you won’t believe it.”
“And I mean, you see it, but so much stronger that people can’t even believe it. When I see foreign leaders, they say we cannot believe the difference in strength between the United States now and the United States two years ago. Made a lot of progress.”
During the holiday call, Trump took the opportunity to criticize the federal courts for ruling against his decisions on immigration.
“It’s a terrible thing when judges take over your protective services, when they tell you how to protect your border. It’s a disgrace.”
