Donald Trump Gives His Presidency An A+, Asks If He “Can Go Higher Than That?”
In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, President Donald Trump said that he would give his presidency an “A-plus” rating, and questioned whether he could rate himself higher.
“Look, I hate to do it,” the president told Chris Wallace during a Fox News Sunday interview. “But I will do it, I would give myself an A+, is that enough? Can I go higher than that?”

The president’s comments came in response to a question asked by Wallace as to where he would rank himself “in the pantheon of great presidents? There’s Lincoln and Washington, there’s FDR and Reagan, do you make the top 10?”
Trump based his personal review on his claims that the current economy is “the best we’ve ever had,” and that his administration has managed to avoid a war with North Korea.
This isn’t the first time the president has given his administration’s performance top marks. In April, President Trump gave himself another A-plus rating for his achievements in the White House.
“Nobody has done what I’ve been able to do,” he told Fox & Friends in April. “And I did it despite the fact that I have a phony cloud over my head that doesn’t exist,” referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
In the aftermath of the devastating series of hurricanes that struck Puerto Rico in 2017, Trump rated his performance a perfect “10” in helping the island territory recover.
According to a Gallup poll, the president’s approval rating currently sits at 47 percent, a marked increase from last year when his figures dipped down to just over 36 percent.
